lights dimming

Recommended Posts

over a year ago, bought a licensed xr600, added a dual sport battery system so the horn would work better. all seemed ok but never really had a chance to use the bike so I don't know if this problem was there when I added the battery or not..... anyway, test rode the bike today and with increased RPMs the lights get way dimmer, the exact opposite of what I would expect. any ideas?

What type of kit did you install? Sounds like the stator ground is not floated. If you are just adding a battery a easy way to hook it up is run it through a reguator/rectifier then to the battery and run all of your lights,horn,etc to the batterygrounding all of it to the battery and not to the frame. If you need any further help send me a message.

It's a trail tech kit. Schematics on the xr look like the lighting coil isn't grounded to the frame. Took things apart..found a loose connection to the blue wire for voltage control..Seems like it's ok now...thanks for the reply.
