With the help form @Rashid510 we were able to piece together a kit which will allow you to covert your MX/R to a EX/R. Due to stock limitations on some parts we've only got 15 complete sets available right now. Once those are all sold out we'll work on putting together another kit with fewer items. The kit doesn't have hardware (Bolt, Nuts, Ect.) due to lack of stock.

This looks like a great kit but don't you need to update the firmware to the EX/EXR firmware to power the components if you're installing this on an MXR? And MX I'm assuming?

If so, you need to inform people of that otherwise you may have some unhappy buyers. If I am incorrect on the firmware update needed, please disregard.

So far it doesn't look like you need to, a few people have already installed these kits without trouble.

Ive installed a lighitng kit on my MX which was spotty when I was plugging everything in (ACM is really picky on the 12V side). Once all connections are plugged in (lights and such) it runs with no issues.

Great to know guys, thanks! This is the opposite of what I have been told by someone that did this install recently. Sounds like they unnecessarily updated their firmware. Ouch.

The lighting functions are managed by the ACM...at one point bikes had kind of a weird combo of MX and EX firmware. If need be rolling back the ACM firmware is needed. Not the whole FW sack.

Does anyone know if the lights in the kit are LED or normal incandescent bulbs?

I studied the ebay listing as well as closeups of the photos but can't tell.

And I'm guessing it doesn't matter to the Alta system as long as the lights are drawing 12v? Thanks.

If it is all stock ALTA EXR parts then everything is incandescent bulbs.

I purchased one of these kits, like leeo45 stated this is all OEM Alta stuff, and it is as nice as you would expect already knowing the quality of the components on these bike. Seeing how the EX/EXR's are appearing to be the most in demand Altas at this time, this is going to be a great alternative to waiting around for one of these bikes to come up for sale. And price wise you can beat it, I've done dual sport conversions on other ICE bikes and I easily had more invested in aftermarket harnesses and lights than what this kit is being offered for. The only other issue an owner of an MX/MXR will have to deal with is plating the bike, which will vary from state to state. I've heard several cases where MX/MXR's came back titled as an "MC" and not an "ORV", so if that's the case, plating one should be a piece of cake.

That was probably me on Advrider.
And I think it was an unnecessary step.
I tested the wiring with with a multimeter , and some bulbs, but got nothing. Once I plugged in the stock tail light it came alive 😖
The only extra part I used beside this kit , is an EXR front brake line. The MX/MXR front brake line is shorter and would interfere with the headlight on the front. Or if put behind the headlight , and you move the dash from the handlebar it's super tight and was dragging..
