I was wondering if it's safe to go up a bit on the headlight wattage? I want to go LED and squeeze a bit more out of it without causing any damage.
I've seen all different wattage bulbs honestly anything from 20w up to 120w. I guess ill just get a stock equivalent and then do some measuring when I've got it apart.I think stock is 35 watts
I've changed to led, but I think it was around 25-30 watt bulb
what led have you found that is higher, all the ones I see are around that wattage
but the only way to know is use a multi meter and see how much charging you get at idle with the stock bulb and what you replace it
because thats the easiest way to drain the battery is at idle
once you start revving higher it charges it faster, so higher wattage bulb could drain the battery at idle which could be an issue depending on how you ride
No I did not adjust the headlight at all. I just stuck the bulb in.That looks good, did you mess with aiming the light at all? I'm concerned because my high beam is already too high and doesn't let me see the road in front of me for potholes and such. I only use my high beam in the day or when I know the road I'm on cause they can get pretty bad out here at times.
