No the stator will not run lights, Its a race bike not a street bike so plan on spending $$ to make it streetable.
Thank you for the reply. I am ok with spending some money to make it right. How do these engines hold up to street riding?No the stator will not run lights, Its a race bike not a street bike so plan on spending $$ to make it streetable.
I currently have a 22 SMR, there a thread under my name that Debi and me and some others have beat this horse to death, I think that might actually be the title of the thread. My opinion, I wish I would have done a little more research but I do not regret it in the least bit, its finally dry where I live (Alaska) and I ride mine everywhere and I have a complete blast. I was kicking myself dwelling on it before I actually got to ride it on the roads but now I'm in love with it and my truck sits parked. Problems I've ran into its the 16.5 front wheel, you cant get a DOT tire for it, only racing slicks, not the end of the world my slicks do great but I also don't have a license and they wont let me test on this bike because the tires, but the place I live in ATVs are legal on the streets so I give her hell and cops have not bothered me, yet, I'm just gonna do the coarse where they supply the bike. Other thing is like Debi said, lighting is a factor I haven't tangled with yet that will raise a problem. The Registering it is not a problem if your dealership is friendly enough to do it for you because the DMV wont ask them questions, that's the route I took and walked away from the dealership with a registered race bike, just make sure you tell them "Ill buy this right now but your going to register it for me". I have motocross/trail bikes that I run lighting on and LEDs wired straight to the battery don't seem to affect them at all, one of my CRFs I run a big rigid cause I run it in the winter and fall and it has minimal effect, never have had an issue with it killing the battery but like you I only use it when its dark and then the next day it gets charged back up riding with it off. With all that said if I could do it again, I would buy the same bike because I love it, but it would be easier to buy an enduro and put supermoto wheels on it.Thank you for the reply.

Haha yeah I guess Fairbanks caught on to it and Northern Powersports cant get away with it anymore, that's where I was gonna buy from until they told me that so I went to The Motorcycle Shop and he had it done right away, even showed me a Husky FC450 with a timbersled on it he registered for a guy haha. Yeah the slicks have been just fine, still a little sandy on the roads so I've been being a little easy on it. Man first thing I noticed was how much I can feel the width of the tires, legit though I was sliding out coming around the big uphill corner on Shrock so I backed off and then coming through my neighborhood I figured out wth was going on, feels kinda cool now.I miss the Alaska dmv, compared to California or Oregon you could get away with murder up there.
I figured running that slick wouldn’t be a huge deal up there.
That's funny I did the same thing one day, turns out if you run under a 25W LED for the headlight the stock stator handles it fine.I ran the stock stator and killed the battery one day while I was out riding. Can’t bump start because of the slipper clutch... upgraded to the trailtech and no more problems. Also I’d recommend the Sicass kit for lighting.
Oh you can bump start with a slipper, need another bike, tie down peg to peg and get to about 25mphI ran the stock stator and killed the battery one day while I was out riding.

Haha! I was at AutoZone and thought eh its fine ill bump start, took a running roll down the hill, shifted into gear and just kept rolling I was like Hmmmmm this is a problem, had to go back inside and borrow an 8mm and a jump box. It was then I learned about the 25W headlight problem.Oh you can bump start with a slipper, need another bike, tie down peg to peg and get to about 25mph
