HID's for your MV

I just received the HID system I purchased for my F4. I got it from

www.xenonpros.com


The great thing is that the delivery took two days AND they offer a wide variety of bulb temperatures

GOOD STUFF!!!!

Would you mind telling me:
  • How heavy is the ballast?
  • Is this a large unit?
  • Do all your other lights work properly?
Thanks - The price looks good & im very interested in getting a system myself.

I haven't put it in yet, just received it. But, the unit is about 3"X2"X1", pretty light. I'll let you know if it affects other lights. It is a plug and play, in line unit. I hope it won't affect other electronics.

I have a pair of McCulloch units (one best out there in terms of quality) installed on my Bird more than four years ago for both Low/High beams. Works good so far despite of being turned on/off/on before each start in a quick succession. They are like any other HID unit, not bigger not smaller except the new digital ones. High quality connectors, long cables. I paid $180 for the pair (yes, for the pair). $250 for one of them is highway robbery!

I just installed a set of HID from www.neverburnout.com. Antonio who works there made the wires long enough so I can hide the ballast under my seat. The unit cost me $168 which included shipping. It is supposively a digital ballast witht the ignitor built inside. You can choose any color temp. bulb. So far it works great. If anyone is interested, you need to e-mail them first as they dont advertise motorcycle kits on their site. Dont forget to ask they about increasing the wire length.

Sure is. Ebay is your friend. I think it is less than $180 nowadays. Search for "hidseller" if my memory is not fooling with me.

i'm surprised you wanted a HID high beam. i chose against it because after having the low beam, i don't even need the high beam anymore except to flash and that won't happen with the HID ignite time. that and when the light is set properly, when you turn on that high beam, you'll be blinding low flying pilots.

I am installing HID's on my Brutale this weekend. I will report back once operation "Let there be Light" is completed.
