How many lights (watts) can I mount on a 150cc ATV?

Recommended Posts

(I don't have manual and there isn't one on the internet)

It's a 150cc ATV, automatic transmission, automatic starter, with zero electric devices.

I have to mount at least some front/rear lights. But for how many watts should I aim in total on entire ATV? You know, for example there are 10/50/200 Watt lights. But it's impossible to order some, when I don't know if I should keep entire ATV under 100 Watts? Under 500 Watts? Under 1000 Watts?

That all depends on what brand atv it is, does it have a battery?

Most bikes are set up to be able to power what there designed for. So if your bike has no design for power out put other then to keep a charge on the battery then anything you connect to the battery may drain the battery a lot more since the engines alternator will not be able to replenish the draw on the battery form the lights you’ve added.

It has battery. No idea about specific model, as it's pretty REKT.

From the mounts on the chassis I can tell, that it used to have 2x front headlights (light bulb), 2x tiny front fog lights, 1x rear braking light, 4x turn signal. + some speedometer etc.

If I go with LED lights, how many watts combined I can put on that?

Typically ATV incandescent head lights would draw about 35 watts each. If it used to have two lights, that is 70 watts. I would use a 50 watt LED light bar to be safe.

That light bar will be far brighter then the original head lights and you would be safe that you won't overdraw the electrical system.

Thank you!!!

 

Regarding front lights. I saw, that there are LED flood lights and LED spot lights.  I was thinking about putting there 1 flood bar (for close) + 2 spot lights (for distance). Of course keeping it around 50 watts. What do you think?

There are many choices for LED lights nowadays. Some LED light bars have both in one unit.

Per the other's recommendation, look on ebay for some quad LED lights.  LEDs have such a lower current draw that you can replace any OEM light with them and still be within operational design for the electrical system.  happy wiring!

      Hi. When I press the starter switch, the solenoid clicks and the starter doesn't turn. The battery is good (about 12.6 volts).  I tried shorting the two big bolts on the solenoid with a screwdriver.  I got sparks and the starter didn't turn.  I tried running a booster cable directly to the starter post but all I get is a bunch of sparks.  I connected the positive side of the battery to the post or bolt on the starter.  I connected the negative side of the battery to the frame,  Did I connect everything wrong?  I don't know why I get the sparks.
      Thank you

      I am in need of a manual for my KLF 300 Bayou 4x2 . I've found others on here for the 4x4 model, but was wondering if I need a separate 4x2 manual. Does anyone know?

      We had an issue with the lights working on occasion.  Then they just stopped working completely (front and rear). We looked at the EFI fuse and it was melted, but not blown.  We replaced the fuse, but now the ignition will not turn on UNLESS we pull the fuse out...and BTW, the lights still didn't work with the new fuse. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
