New 2011 & 2012 Husaberg Motorcycle 55 Watt HID Headlight

# 1 This Headlight is a plug and play ready High output 55 Watt HID combo based on the 2011 -2012 Husaberg motor cycle Headlight units.

#2 These are brand new KTM Headlight Lens installed in new Orange or White MC masks - straps included.

#3 These use Slim Ballast 55 Watt HID conversion with a 5000– 6000K H7 base bulb.

#4 The light focal pattern is best described as a very steep inverted “V”, on my bike I have the main focal spot adjusted to provide downrange lighting at 150 yards plus or minus - (These have the same elevation adjustment of the DOT units, just remember that headlight adjustment is also affected by bike suspension setup and SAG). The side light diffusers ( pictures # 5 & 6 ) that are integrated in to the lens provide a very sufficient wide beam spread for close trail work, yet with the optics of the lens, out riding the main focal point of the light is no longer a problem.

#5 I have been testing this setup on my bike for the last 6 months and it is very stable, it does not have the tendency of some other HID setups currently on the market of blinking out when one least expects it.

#6 These are wired up to provide a 5 watt Daytime running light when the low beam selection of the headlight switch. On Hi beam the 55 watt HID and the 5 watt bulb are illuminated. These are very bright - And are not street legal. These are unshielded 5000-6000K H7 HID bulbs, Highly focused for maximum down range illumination.

# 7 These require DC power. Some bikes require a DC conversion at a very minimum, & it is recommended that the KTM EXC 2 & 4 strokes 2008-2011 have a stator upgrade and DC conversion. (TrailTech Stator kits are available just send me a pm)

If you have a 08-11, 4 stroke or 2 stroke or XC or XC-W ( the ones that have the OEM wiring harness for trail lighting) let me know and we can help you get to where you want to go with your project as we also have taillights, brake light switches and plug in jumpers available.

Please email me at ns_c@sbcglobal.net , call 760-828-2625 or pm if you have any questions.

Paul

Another nice product Paul. Too bad I already have a headlight. Oh yea, I got that from you too

Re: New 2011 & 2012 Husaberg Motorcycle 55 Watt HID Headligh

Brady, thanks for the complimentary post. I have been working on this one for awhile, testing SAE /DOT SPEC lens, 35 watt bulbs, compact ballast , not so compact ballast, and this is the brightest one of the single beam / headlight setups.
This off road lens pattern is really quite different than the OEM SAE- DOT Lens in how it distributes the light. I think the price point is competitive.
I have question for you, will the stock FX stator setup have the capacity to run this light?
I know your light draws 70 watts when both beams are on, so did you have modify your stator to handle the extra load?
Thanks in advance for filling the gaps in my understanding, Paul

In what little time mine has been on due to this thing we have here called winter, it works perfectly with no stator work required.

Re: New 2011 & 2012 Husaberg Motorcycle 55 Watt HID Headligh

I did some measurments back in this post:
09 FE570 What's the wattage output?

The bike generates 210W of Power from the Alternator. Divide by 12Volts and that is 17Amps.

I measured roughly 2.4Amps 29W for the Fan (not on all the time so may not need to include in total).
Tail Light would only be 10Watts at a guess 1.2Amps
I measured from the fuel pump 2.5 Amps 30Watts (Fuse 2)
I measured from the EFI Unit and Injector 0.2~0.5 Amps 2.4~6Watts (Fuse 1). This varied when you increased RPM’s. I tested idle to mid range rpm.

Anything else I forgot to measure? Maybe charging the battery, say 3 Amps at a guess 36Watts

With the fan on that adds up to 111Watts and leaves 99Watts for your Light.
With the fan off that adds up to 82Watts and leaves 128Watts for your Light.




2010 FX and FE use the same charging parts

Re: New 2011 & 2012 Husaberg Motorcycle 55 Watt HID Headligh

Being a little pedantic here...... How many volts does your stator put out? if it only puts out 12v you got issues.... I reckon the math should start like this.... 210w devided by 14v? Just a thort.

Re: New 2011 & 2012 Husaberg Motorcycle 55 Watt HID Headligh

I read some of the comments and the replies and had a few thoughts-

A 12V DC system is rated at an average of 12V DC through the entire cycle of electrical load – in respect to a motorcycles electrical system. Not the highest number observed in system use. A 12V DC system can often times fluctuate from 10V to 13.8V+- depending on rpm of engine, electrical load on system, the type of battery, and of course the state of charge of the battery.
One of the benefits of LED and HID lighting systems are their ability to cope with a wide range of voltage supplies (LED 7.2V -24V) (HID 9V DC-16V DC) and not yield unsatisfactory lighting quality in respect to moment by moment loads on a motorcycles electrical system. Not a real problem for the average trail rider yet those that may have a few high load accessories installed such as heated grips or heated vest, this can be a real benefit on the trail after the Sun goes down & the Temperatures drop.
In contrast an incandescent bulb will become dimmer as voltage decreases, and will as well burn out more quickly on the high side of the rated voltage.

In respect to my question about the FX models Stator output, thanks for the thoughtful answers.

Paul

ps: Pedantic observations always accepted and in fact enjoyed – Some of my best friends are engineers and while I may not always agree, at least their observations get me to think.

It's nice work, to be sure. Perfect for 570 owners who ride exclusively off-road.

However, while I am stunned by the inadequacy of the headlight on a high-end motorycle, I didn't pay the bucks for a street-legal dual-sport only to degrade that investment by making it illegal to ride on the street. I'd love a plug-and-play option to increase the output of the headlight and keep it street legal.

Perhaps the PMX upgrade will work for you?

You do need to find a mechanical way to aim your light a bit lower than what they provide from factory.
