    no good for the bar you have linked, the stock blaster stator can only handle 55 watts total, that includes headlight, taillight and oil level indicator light total wattage.
    there are 75 watt lighting coils that can be soldered into our stators, I run one.

    I'm still confused on LED's, some say they work as is with maybe some flickering at low rpm's/idle ?
    some say you'll need to do a DC conversion with a AC to DC rectifier and add a battery
    Trailtech has everything needed to do the conversion..... https://www.trailtech.net/accessories/electrical-accessories

    AC to DC conversion for LED's......

    many of us have done the Wallyworld lights, I only used one of them to stay under the 55 watts and it was brighter than the stock light....

    Do you think if I put these lights which are at a lower wattage. would i still have to change to a AC to DC Comversion and add a battery. sorry i’m a newbie to all this https://www.auxbeam.com/77718854
