So long as you don't sneak up from behind and startle it you should be ok. It likes to be scratched under its chin but will tear off down the field if you frighten it...

Auto Bulbs Direct do LED tail light bulbs. I imagine other shops sell them too. Direct replacement for normal bulb. Mine arrived yesterday. Not fitted yet, so can't comment further.

Totes jel of your set-up Interceptor - I'd love that space to operate in. And your skill-set of course...

You could try a KTM headlight/fairing unit - it's what I have on my xr650l & gives a fair amount of light. It looks fairly similar to that polisport unit too

The lights on the wr are ac and the ignition and charging system is dc so it might be that.

Feel free to ship stuff to me and I'll forward it on to you. Will cost much less that way.
