The light set up and installation was great! It was easy to understand and install was even easier. The only problem is that the light isn't bright enough for night rides at any kind of decent speed. I suggest a bright LED light for both high and low beam.

This universal headlight requires a 12v power source and may not be applicable to models that are not equipped with a lighting or charging circuit. In some cases an aftermarket stator may be available separately which can provide this.
I installed this light on my DRZ400 and it's great. The install was very straight forward. It took way longer to remove the stock light than to install the X2. Now that it's installed, I can remove it in seconds if I need to get to any of the wiring behind it. I ordered the clear lens protector (sold separately) to keep rocks from damaging the lights.
If your going to buy this light for a honda CRF250x be aware that the stock stator in your bike only puts out 35 watts. You will also additionally need the Trail Tech Stator upgrade kit and the Trail Tech Lighting Flywheel to properly power this light and not kill your battery. The first time i rode with this light about half way through our ride i was kick starting my bike and the light was unusable.
The light is very bright and does what it needs to but ends up being more expensive than the HID kit in the end.
Make sure you plan ahead.
For those that have the KTM EXC’s 08-11 you know how bad the stock 35w lights are, Here is a great option for a reasonable price. I went with the Trail Tech 100w stator and the 70w Halogen Off-road headlight assembly. The Trail tech instructions are second to none simple to follow and was easy to install both kits.
You had better not expect to take rocks with this thing. The X2 light needs a rock guard that used to come with the unit. They stopped including this guard because the light melts it after extended rides. So, the solution is what? Ride without it. That's right, instead of fixing the problem they have decided to suggest you go without it. Anyway, thats a problem for those of us who ride trail & take rocks, eh? I must say that Motosport made a large error in not updating the photo of this product with one showing NO rock guard. It is even more irritating since Trail Tech stopped including the guards 3 years ago. Come on, Motosport. Bottom Line: Buy Something Else.
I would suggest to check with companies like Baja Designs, Stealthy Offroad or Trailtech for information on what is required on your Honda CRF230F to run a headlight.
