Suzuki RM-Z250 stator

Ok.
So I bought a 2004 RM-Z and I want to put a dual sport kit on it.
Good idea?
Bad idea?
Anyway.
Baja Designs has a kit, but they say it won't work because the stock stator does not put out enough power.
Has anyone dual sported an RM-Z?
Anyone know of a stator upgrade?

Ok. So I contacted them.
They make a 35 watt stator, but nothing that will run the dual sport kit.
The dual sport kit would require about 100 watts.
He gave me a couple suggestions, but I'm not sure I'll be able to street legalize this bike.


Anyone else able to one dual sported?

Good luck with keeping up with the valve servicing. Sell it and buy an enduro bike like a WR. Much simpler.

I opted not to try and dual sport it as it does not produce enough power even with the 35 watt stator wind.
So it will remain an MX bike.
