Hello Gentlmen,

We have 2001 R1 fairings which include 2 headlights.
These fairings have been adapted to fit my buddy Pauls RZ500 project.

What are your thoughts regarding the RZ500 charging system & battery being able to power these 2 headlights?


Thank you for your expertise!
Tony

Do you mean that you have 2 60/55W headlights lit at the same time ?

Use led bulbs and you should have a better light and a lot less draw on the charging system
