Headlight + Tire Questions

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if it's possible to buy just the headlight pigtail?

I'm not sure what it's called, but the socket where the bulb screws in got wrecked on one bike and the wires came unsoldered from the socket on another. I successfully soldered the wires back onto the socket on my bike and it works, but on my dad's bike the socket itself is wrecked. The rest of the headlight assembly is fine, plastics etc, and it'd be real annoying to have to buy the whole thing just because the socket it broken.

Also, will a stock xr250 stator power a 55/60w bulb?

Other questions:

I'm thinking about running a trials tire for my rear. From what I've read, they do well on the trails and the type of stuff I usually ride. Anyone got any suggestions on a good trials tire? I was looking at this one: http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/2/29/392/5270/ITEM/Michelin-Trials-Competition-Rear-Tire.aspx but the sizing looked kinda weird. If the 18 is diameter, what's the 4.00? not the standard width - ar - diameter.

tl;dr

Is it possible to buy just a headlight pigtail for the xr?

And anyone got any suggestions for a good rear trials tire for the xr250?
