Hello Ben could you tell me what model the trail tech headlight unit is please

My standard one is just hopeless if its the HID one how hard / easy is it to fit. My refurbishment work is done now and the bike looks and runs sweet but I really would like to be able to see where the hell I'm going.

Thanks
Mike

Hi mate,

Trail tech x8 rings a bell, but I will confirm later on
They're a fantastic light, far superior to the standard issue. I did a few evening trails on Saturday and had to have my fellow DRZ in front so I could light the way for us both

Thanks a lot Ben

Now I'm pretty sure the big not for road use written all over the place is nothing to worry about in fact I can't believe the current lighting set up is legal. I have the E model and the 35 watt front light is well worse than any lighting I've ever had.

Did you also get the switch , my current one is high or low so does not have the ability to have both on at once or did you come up with your own idea ?

Mine sails through each MOT, as did the light when it was TP's on his DRZ (see above in the banner)
Mine is the s, so already has all the relevant switches etc, just wired it in and off we go!

Mine is set up so that the bottom light is High beam and the top is low, both on at once would be good, but probably a bit much for the road I feel - the way mine is is more than enough.

they're a fantastic set up, worth every penny

Hi Ben
x2 halogen ordered today and after a chat with the site owner he suggested a couple of things worth knowing firstly changing the rear brake light to an led version will help with battery draw as te standard bulb does draw quite heavily so the swap would be a good idea anyway, but secondly to get both lights working at once if desired, its done by wiring in the dip beam to the tail light this will mean the dip comes on in standard low beam setting but will mean when you switch to high it will stay on keeping both bulbs on. Now I do know that by your account this would be a bit over the top but as I want to do do some night lanning at some point this could be most helpful.

Mike

Ps with the group ride hopefully coming up pretty soon would Travis like to join us seems a shame that its only yourself from the group regulars who has shown an interest (apart from ferdie who looks like he can't make it)

Very interesting, I will look at perhaps wiring both in for the winter as I plan on a few night rides.
I'm already on led rear, as i couldn't stand the standard set up, so a little extra wiring mod should be simple enough.

I would imagine TP would be interested in coming along as will a couple of others from the facebook page ( I'd keep it on here only, unless you want 30+ turning up!)

As you all know, Dizzy has gone to TP and from what I can see, he is enjoying it... here is how it looks now



We've now fitted a nicer, more modern front mudguard, the same shape as that which I'd fitted to my Husky previously - from a Yamaha YZ426. an RFX gear change lever, TP's faithful Cycra guards and the most noticeable change both aesthetically and weight wise, the plastic tank.


It's looking great!
