New light on Husaberg FE 450 2009

I'm scared of how bad this light is...
I rode my bike a couple of miles to winter storage right before christmas and it was dark and I could not see which lane I was driving in. Had almost an accident when I hit the side of the road. Luckey a bus driver that was behind me understand my problem and used his HI light to lighten up the road for me.

So now I would like to get some more or new lights on the bike.
I have seen some lights that I think would be nice to have, but I don't know if they are road legal.

One of them is BA20D HID Headlight Conversion Kit for KTM , Single, 5000K.

The other one is SQUADRON, M/C LED RACE LIGHT, BLACK

I know there also is other brands but I will use my bike on the road and some enduro so I need lights that can do both conditions.

Happy to get your thoughts and input on this!

Hi Glenn71,

I have the Baja Squadron which is excellent but that Enduro tech looks even better.

I have the Trail Tech X2 on my bike.

This light is good for about 50 mph at night off road. I have done a few hundred miles with one of these and find that it works really good.

If you use the rock guard, this can lead to the light getting too hot at low speeds and the 4" will shut off.

The solution if you want to run the rock guard is to drill a series of small holes across the bottom of the guard and the top so that air can flow through and keep it cool.

If you are riding at 10mph and above the heating issue is not a problem.

They are a little pricey, but, well worth it!

See this thread on stator output, and what is left over for lighting. There is plenty for this light and then some.

Thanks for the information!

Is a Rock guard the same as hand guard? Because I have protection in front of my handles.
And is the light Ok to use on the road? I think about traffic and if the light is to bright/strong.
