do they check for stuff like that in your state? in california you need high and low beam but i just aimed the light more towards the road so it wouldnt blind anyone and it was fine. make sure you post pics when you get the headlight on!

The garage I go to for inspection is pretty lick'em stick'em on bikes so I'm not worried about passing inspection. Long story short, the company I work for is very strict on vehicle appearance/noise. Blinding the locals on my way into work at night would not help my company's reputation with the locals.

yea you would be better off seting it up right, dont want to set a bad example. did you check out that electric box i sent with the light? i didnt know if that was some sort of resistor for high low beam or for something else.

It is a regulator/rectifier for bikes that run direct from the stator. I'd be running off a fuse block so I would be able to skip that.

Talking Simply FABuLUST

Kicks following your wanderlust build Kubiak. Thanks for keeping the forum posted

I have been trying to read back through these many threads where your bike's progress was featured, in this case when the paint came of the lower frame rails. Wasn't it when you moved your side stand? Is that why you still us the lower rails, at least on the left side? Pardon again my asking, if this an old topic more than covered elsewhere, but I couldn't find my way back to the rail work and why. I've seen some 650's go without these lower rails, after relocating the only items they seem to serve: side stand, regulator, and stock bash plate. Now the new Husqvarna looks to be doing away with them as well. What's your take on removing these and any plans to follow suit, finding much needed ground clearance.

Cheers,
Mark S

yea i started by removing the stock skidplate since i do mostly easy trails, no rock crawling anymore. then noticed all the electrical stuff on the lower frame rails exposed so i cut the skidplate tabs off, kickstand safety switch plug gone since i disconnected it and tucked away the oxygen sensor wires behind the front frame rail. then i cut the kickstand mount off and rewelded it a few inches back and angled it down more so i could shorten the kickstand. i was wondering about removing the bottom rails alltogether but dont know how much stress they take. it would be nice if they were not needed but we need someone to try it first lol! i was also thinking on making the bottom rails straight across for more ground clearance too since the stock ones hang down so far. let me know if you find out more info on removing them all the way like the husqvarnas. thanks!
