    I love to ski in the winter, play guitar at night, have a beer on the boat with friends, put on the water skis for a lap around the lake, ride DH on my mountain bike and explore the wilderness on my dirt bike. Life is good

    night pics not worth anything with my camera options But i can tell you it's about twice as bright as stock, the flood is larger too. As for this light working on AC power i can't contribute. Idk the differences in currents but I am curious if I missing potential from this light . . . Glad Ya'll like it!

    update: Headlight works very well, wired it into the stock light and added a switch. Mounted it right to the number plate with the switch on the back side of it. Super rugged light, very bright and is pretty stable on all terrain. I did take some clear silicon to make a better seal over the glass edges for extra waterproofing. All said and done this was an excellent $25 project

    Cool so i can put a switch on that new light too i imagine. No need for a rectifier of anything?
  8. Hello TT buds! I am looking for help wiring an 18w led headlight onto my 96 XR600R. I am an electrical Noob but I know I can figure it out with some help. I have a wiring diagram for my bike, a Ricky Stator installed and everything else stock (NO BATTERY). How do I wire the led to run off a toggle switch? Led is 18w and it's Operating Voltage: 10-30V DC I do not know if i need a regulator, fuse or anything else really. I know that the led has a positive and negative wire running out of it but i don't know what to plug them into. I am keeping the Stock Headlight and adding this led to brighten my night rides Thanks for the help fellers!

    600 Missing through the RPMs. What else to try?

    Well, new RickyStator, float valve, Hotcams and still the same issue. I can't understand

    600 Missing through the RPMs. What else to try?

    New float needle did nothing to solve my problem other than help me move onto the next thing. So again, the issue is here: Bike is sputtering and sounds like it's missing spark at any throttle position other than idle or cranking on it. Starts 1st kick, bunch of new parts and I ride at 10,000 ft. hotcams stage 1 recut/ new kibblewhite exhaust valves new timing chain new chain tensioner 142 main jet, needle position 3 (playing with carb has little improvement) supertrapp exhaust new CDI New ignition coil (didn't replace spark plug cap) Bike appears to have good spark when kicking over with plug out, I am really stumped on this and just want to Ride! Could someone please direct me to a video/ article on how to properly time an XR600? (finding compression stroke, how to get chain over sprocket properly . . .) Also, how do i check my stator to see if it's pumping out enough OHMs? I hope to report good news soon I just seem to be in over my head and running out of ideas. Thanks again for all your help TT!

    Well I went ahead and installed a Hotcam because power and no more autodecompressor system (which had too much play). Now the float needle is malfunctioning and pissing gas causing issues. Turns out this could have been the problem all along. Parts and report to come

    I had my exhaust valves re-cut and sealed, would this change my clearances?

    A better description of the autodecompressor system's issue is that the lobe has play in it and makes a consistent click sound when spinning the motor. I have heard of these parts wearing out after a while and causing faulty engine performance. Could that piece be opening my exhaust valve while running thorough the RPMs? If so i'm ready to order a Hotcams Stage 1. Would this require me to change valve clearances? And what about the oil system does this require me to change anything (such as pull the springed pin that sits under the stock autodecompressor system?) Thanks Backwoods Bomber for identifying and explaining how the Slosh Baffle works, much appreciated i can rule that out.
