    RMZ250 Road legal

    Post by supergimp2000 on Wed Dec 11, 2013 11:06 am

    Hi guys im a newbie, i want to make my 06 RMZ250 into a trials/road bike, ive got the jist of everything i need im just wondering how to go about doing the lighting? because the bike itself doesn't generate power does anyone have any other ideas of how to run lights? (mainly just a rear break light)

    thanks in advance

    Hi, you could fit a lighting coil which will allow you run full lights with a pressure switch in the front/rear brake currently run an RM 250 this way. There are battery powered options, but these could be a pain in terms of battery life and where to put a battery, there are kits available that fit most bikes.

    Dont know about your bike space wise but i had a mate that used to have a small battery in his air box to work his brake light.
    Then just used to plug it into a charger over night.

    thank you, to install the pressure switch is there much modifications made? to make it fit or should it fit right in?....i did read previously that you have to be careful with lighting coils because they can fry the main cdi unit? not sure how true or false that is, all seems pretty confusing, although i wouldnt mind charging the battery everyday i guess lol

    If they did that then no one would use lighting coils but they do so rest assured that if you get a good lighting coil in the first place and not a wonky eyed one from china then you will be fine


    Here you go but you do know that you don’t need lights to be road legal..... Minimum requirements for the road is

    But you do know that you don’t need lights to be road legal..... Minimum requirements for the road is

    Road registered bike
    Tax
    MOT
    Valid insurance
    Road legal tyres
    A continuous tone horn
    Rear reflector

    and that’s it but can only be rode in the day light, if you want to put lights on at a later day you can without a re MOT as when you test a bike with no lights the MOT certificate will say "lights not fitted for testing" NOT day light use only
