Accidentally bought two headlights because I bid on shit and then forget about it. Now I've got both on hand and can't decide which to use. The one on the right is definitely a little more modern looking, but the stone guard on the other is a cool feature.

Dude... That acerbis is pure retro bad ass!

I hate to see it get fucked up on a dirt bike, but I couldn't not use it.

Are they both just a 35w almost better than candle power bulb?

Looks like the other has a shallower mounting depth too...

Man, I had the same worries about it getting tore up. Then I mounted it and fell in love with it. Fuck it. I hope I don't crush it, but I'm running it. I'm tired of playing it safe with old shit and preserving it for the next guy to enjoy. I can't find anything about it on Google. If it's super rare maybe I shouldn't risk it, but I doubt that's the case.

And yeah, they're both 35w, which is all my stator can feed anyway. But they're H3 and glass lens', so I can put a decent bulb in when I rewind the stator for more oomph.

The little Acerbis emblem is removable so my oil cooler ( it's wrapped around the lower edge of the neck) gets plenty of air. They other hung down too low.

Bad picture, but a perfect shade of red on the stone guard. Nice job, Acerbis.



I don't remember shearing knobs off this bad years ago. I dunno if new compounds are junk or what.

Hey, wanted to mention checking into led h3 bulbs for the light.

These things are cheap and produce a damn bright light.

Something like this. http://www.ebay.com/itm/6000K-High-P...5YxmvQ&vxp=mtr

I got an h4 led bulb in the DR and love it...

The stator on these bikes produces AC ( normal) but there is no rectifier, so not LED friendly.

The bike puts out 55w and the voltage regulator is good for 75w. I don't care about turn signals, and if I convert to DC then I need to carry a battery, or at least a capacitor. Both of which I'd rather not have to fool with/ find a place to mount.

There's enough poles on the stator frame that I can rewind to produce 200w, I just have to get a stronger regulator to handle it ( supposedly?). 200w would run a good H4 easily, a tail/stop light and even heated gear if needed. Honestly, I'm not really seeing any upsides to converting to DC. If I needed a battery for an electric starter, sure, but I enjoy the idea of not needing a battery. I know the lights will go dim at idle, but I don't really see where that's an issue.

It's a small world. A buddy of mine and his brother/nephew that I ride with fairly often live about an hour away ( everything's an hour away out here). He calls me and says he met a guy out my way that has property to ride on. We get out there and I get to talking with the landowner. He used to date my cousin, I used to run around with his brother, who is now working for The Weather Channel flying helicopters and is stationed in Anchorage with the Coast Guard ( don't ask, I don't know). Dude was the biggest clown you ever met, so it's really cool to see him do so well for himself now. The two buddies of the landowner that came out to ride were both people I've done work for in the past. You never know who lives around the corner ( about 10min away). Starting to seem like there are a lot more guys riding dirt around than I thought. People are just very private and don't strangers trespassing, so it's hard to get invites for stuff like this. Looking forward to everyone piling in at my place and help me beat some of my own trails down Anyway...rambling...

After some talks with those guys and feeling how their bikes do in the ruts, I wen't home and hit up the ebay.



Ebay image, not my bike ^^^ Scotts damper, top yoke, fat bar mount and all associated bracketry. Looks like new, but the price wasn't I'm getting to the point where I need adult supervision when I'm online...looking at hydro clutches already
