Looks like they wire the lamps same as the horn, switching the negative of the lamp to turn it on or off and always have +12volts feed to the bulbs....

The intelligent controller I think just reduce the power to provide a lower supply to the lamps not sure about the white wire they call optional customer supplied toggle bit ?....
Must be some fancy controller as a lot of LED's are not dimmable...talking about dimms how you doing Froooty  BRP smile BRP smile BRP smile BRP smile BRP smile

Just realize you need regulated DC to power them.... and I think all US bikes have AC as std supplied.
That means you'll need a reg/rect in addition, with a cap or battery (better), just saying  Cool

Yeah I was about 90% sure that was the case. I'm glad you confirmed it. I Think I'm going to get the Ricky stator DC system with a battery.

This seems like the best deal.

Wouldn't bother just drop in a rectifier you have a regulator already

Nope!
Oh, mebbe yip, but then only for very small currents (say a led indicator relay), not this ~2A unit.
There's a big diff between bleeding-away ac-current (called regulating) and then chasing what is left through a diode (called rectifying) compared to rectifying first, then properly regulating the resultant dc after which the current is sent to a buffer (cap or battery). The result of the latter is much smoother, and this that driver-unit needs to be able to clamp&control the current through those led's.
My advice would be to not go for the biggest stator, 150W is already an overkill for this let alone 200W, however do get the biggest reg/rect as this will ensure keeping the thing cool therefore more reliable.

im using a reg/rec of a kwaka 1000 huge thing , it gets warm to the touch sometimes but it has never failed , bigger is better sometimes



100 watt spot ,2x 30watt led's, low beam 55/75 watt  naughty 
i can see

Oh wow that's a lot of lighting!

I think though, I probably will go with the Ricky stator system. I have a Baja designs dual sport kit that's been in my storage building for almost two years brand new. I need to go ahead and install it, so I'll have turn signals and a horn. They're not required here to be legal, but I think they'd be nice for safety reasons. You'd be surprised how many people don't know what hand signals are.  doh plus down the road I'd like to have a plug in for a gps, or phone charger. The main purpose in buying this bike was for weekend dualsport trips with my friends who have KLRs.  razz  I wanted a bike that was ok on road, but great offroad. I didn't like the power of the KLR's so I decided that the xr650 could be built into the greatest dualsport ever.  BRP smile

Well after a 4 month wait I finally got my black radiator shrouds in the mail.

Took a little time and went a head and stickered them

Mounted on the bike along with new tank graphics.

Put me out of pain and get some fork gators fitted plz.... BRP smile must agree the front mudguard now looks massive ?...
On another question does your front brake hose not rub on the number board ?....my stock set-up does and it bugs me....getting scratches and rub marks now ? mine might be because I am using higher bars which is making the hose tighter where it swings across the headlight cowl ?.

The black seat cover is that homemade or bought item? does it stop the aches and pains in the butt from the standard seat? Crying or Very sad poor baby

I got a few new things over the weekend


My current bars and setup. I bought the bike with these bars on it, does anybody know if these are the factory bars? I've seen other bikes with silver sets, I'm just curious.


Stripped the old bars off and about to fit the adapters.


A side by side comparison.


I had to check the width on the adapters to the bar pad openings...... apparently you can install them backwards Rolling Eyes 


Side view of adapters. Really happy with the fit and finish, protaper makes a good product.


New bars mounted......... sort of. My handgaurds don't fit, going to have to modify.



Throttle cable is too short or in a bind. I didn't have time today to pull the tank off and check the cable routing. scratch 
Everything is just lightly tightened, guess I'll call it a mock up. shrug

Do the hand guards not fit due to the bars being tapered ?....if s I modified the existing brackets....

Saylor,

1 thing still is missing - the rubber ballows which protect the stanchions, you really need them offroad.
Nike bike anyway! Bump
