You're off at 12:30? Like, you could be in Columbus by 130? And we could be to tar hallow by 2:30. And we'd have an easy 5 hours down there! We can make this work. Maybe this Thursday? Maybe next Thursday?

Don't worry about the past 3000 pages. What's done is done! What you want to watch is the current and new stuff. Sometimes it's just a post like "hey, I'm off Thursday! Anyone wanna ride???" Othertimes it's a more detailed conglomeration of people and dates and times workin towards a goal... Not unlike the road enduro last Sunday that you're seeing a bunch of folks talking about.

Congrats GCMC!


What made you go this route out of curiosity? Was it just easier to get one already sprung well and setup for the MX?

I dont think theres a cheaper option. Of course, maybe you want higher quality, but that'll cost you more.

That kit is for a bike with existing head light and lighting capable stator. That bike doesn't look like it would have either. I'm thinking she's in the same boat I was in with the 426.

I think a battery powered light setup would work. You don't have to have your headlight and taillight on by law, but you must have ones that work. That leaves turn signals, horn, and brake light. If you had LED bulbs in those, the battery could last days. You could ditch the turn signals and get a bicycle horn if you wanted, and eliminate those from the power draw.

yes on the headlight, no on the stator.

the kit is stand alone. runs off a rechargeable battery pack.

however, IF the stator is capable of enough output, there is a way to run it off the stator (as I have done to my XR).

first things first, however. she needs a headlight, and there are options, like this:

http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/...-MMX-Headlight

so the key is whether the stator can handle the 35 watts necessary to run this headlight. my XR's stock stator puts out 75 watts. I wouldnt be surprised if the CRF150R had similar capability. Gorman/GCMK, do you know what the output of the 150's stator is?

just find out what kind of bulb it is and go LED. Some are listed as H4 bulbs, and she could go with one like this:
http://http://item.mobileweb.ebay.co...id=48534089419
(if that link doesn't work, just search eBay for H4 LED Bulb)

Light output would be enough to look legal, but not enough to see in the dark. Power draw would be minuscule; just a few watts.

If night rides are of interest, then ignore all that and make a real bulb work.

thats the other option. if the stock stator is too weak (and if she doesnt want to rewind/replace it) then LED is the way to go.

Just get stickers like they use on drag cars and Nascar. They look real and pass tech inspection.

Laugh but I've seen enduro riders put a headlight sticker on the number plate to fake it as a street legal bike.
