Hmmm...With all you guys with motorcycles, maybe I should post up a for sale ad for my motorcycle trailer

turn signals is so I can shift and/or steer with my left hand while making turns in the city. They have LED ones now that are integrated into the bark buster deflectors...

The stator puts out enough to power the headlight and tail light. The turn signals don't add enough to amount to anything. A heavy duty cooling fan or heated grips will leave you wanting more watts out of the charging system.

Well the guy who sold me the bike said the shop who did the recent engine work (Apex) suggested he upgrade the stator. My understanding is your EXC has a better one, since it came with lights, but the XC line didn't come with lights so they have a weaker stator with lower charge rate.. which means I'd want to upgrade to a EXC-level stator if I really want to run lights a lot. Which I do.

Hey can you point me to your helmet speaker kit?

my stator does fine with headlight and LED brake light. Not sure about how it would handle turn signals.
