HID yet again

So I have read about every friggin post on HIDs. I know how great of an upgrade they are. Can/will anyone post pics up of their lights on and the projection out? And state what K you used...6000K or 8000K. Thanks

Get a 6000k and no higher, 4300k is ideal. 8000k is crap colour and just create alot of glare to other drivers and will be like most try hard jap bikes.

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast!!

can an HID be repaired??

I have one but the wires were pulled from the light...

I did this while removing it from the bike.... the kit was about 2 months old at the time.

Woody ??

If at first you don't succeed, use a hammer instead

Is this the set up you have that goes under the seat? I was looking to just mount that slim ballast under the horn cover Like I had seen on the forum. PM your price I will tell you though I am not looking to buy for a couple of months seeing how I wont be home till August.

only use 6k mate its the best and brightest white you can get

la case saw me coming about 1/2 mile away in broad daylight when he was waiting for me
personally i wouldn't mount under the seat due to heat and the hassle of having to run long cables all the way down the bike
and space is limited as it is

not dissing mr woods but his kits are 3 times the price of what i linked to

and you get a pair so if something goes wrong you got spares and a years warrenty + hes uk so no good for you

life is not measured by the number of breaths we take
but by the moments that take our breath away
