Default 2018 Stator output.

Hey guys.

My '18 250 is on order and should be in within the next two weeks or so..
I have a Baja Designs Squadron Pro sitting on my shelf that I'd like to make into a headlight for riding at night. I can rebuild a bottom end but I'm really new to electrical so I'm hoping for some help in everyday language.

Any chance one of you can walk me through how to test the stator output to know if I have the ability to run this light? I'm assuming the answer is yes since the factory halogen bulb is 35W and the Squadron Pro is 40W.. But is there anything else I'll have to do to make an LED light work??

Hi,
I think there is no problem, the small lamp is 10 w and the big 35 w, it is always on.

I tested a 2018 GG300 and it had around 70 watts DC of usable power. You should be fine.

The easiest way to check a stator output is to put a load on it with a good multi meter and keep adding until you start to see a state of discharge. I use 5w, 10w, 15m, 20w, 35w halogen track light bulbs rated for 12 watts and keep adding them until I see a drop in voltage at the battery.

Fantastic info. Thanks so much. So can I "plug and play" with an LED? or do I need to add/modify something to make this work?

You should be able to plug and play no problem. Bikes with a battery have regulated DC power which is what a LED light needs.

Thanks so much! I really appreciate the help.
I'm just a lost cause when it comes to understanding electrical.
