Sweet Jesus man, you are overcomplicating this something fierce. You're not building a time machine, Emmett; all of this stuff is commercially available and not expensive. Do it with the commercially available stuff and you will get a clean result.

Go to MJ USA and buy a opened carton BD enduro headlight and taillight / subfender for $45. You could probably get away without even wiring them up, although as long as they are bolted on you may as well make the electrical connections.

??? I thought I was doing this the easy way. Screw a white light to the number plate And a red light to the fender. 4 wires. Done.

That's over complicated?

You guys rock.
On this part, I will do exactly as I'm told.....again, hate wiring anything. your call (but you have to clear it with Meef first)

You boys decide, tell me what to buy and then help* me install it.





* "help" defined as: please do all wiring in exchange for adult beverages and/or cookies.

Congrats! Heck of a school to sign for! I went to my training camp there, but played for Carnegie Mellon...probably because no one else was stupid enough to offer me a spot on the field. With players like me, it was not a surprise we were not a football powerhouse.

The mighty fighting Tartans...our mascot was a Scottish Terrier.

No, I guess not. Sorry. You go ahead.

I'm sure it will look very factory, work flawlessly, and not arouse the interest of any LE.

I apologize for sticking my snout in your guys' project.

I posted here so you (all) would stick your snout in. And those ^^^^^ are all legit issues. I just didn't get the over-complicated one.

My original suggestion will not look factory, at all. But it runs off low enough power that we don't need to rewind the stator, and it was under $40 total.

This one isn't the cheapest out there, but it takes a standard H4 bulb. The less expensive units took an odd 35 watt bulb, which I'm not sure if there is a LED cross-over.

http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/...o-H4-Headlight

LED H4 Bulb:

There are several better tail light options in LED, like this one for not much more $:

http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/...t-Brake-Light-

Both better options than the originals, but both more expensive (which is why I didn't head here first, I'm a cheap-ass).
