Brutale headlight upgrade: Bi-Xenon Hid, Led high beam and daylight driving light.

The chrome coating inside the headlight of my MV 910r Brutale is flaking, so I decided to do a upgrade to it. A good thing too, when I took the headlight apart the glass came loose way to easy, so that was a accident waiting to happen. I put the first idea in the picture below, still working on it. Ps damn this combo is bright.

Nice. Where did you get it?

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

Hi, got it from two different stores, retrofitlab has almost every thing you need for such a job. In the US you have theretrofitsource which is the same idea. The Led highbeam is normally a axillary light they put on off-road buggy's, bikes and quads it's very compact and robust plus gives you 3300lumen of light.

This is the end result, only need to do the last part of the wiring and put it on the bike. When I get it on the bike I will make some action pictures/movie to show the light in action.

Just a tip.
It's very probable that you'll have a problem with overheating LED's
In, my first set up i used 2x6W LED modules (3W per LED) in alu housing, and they were owerheated due the lack of airflow inside the headliht housing.
Reducet to 2x3W modules and they are holding on 4 years (40.000 km).

Got everything wired up and working, decided to use a relay wiring harness to make the Hid system completely separate from the rest of the bike's electrics just to protect the ECU. Below are some pictures from the different modes I can run. 1 just daylight driving lights. 2 daylight driving lights plus hid set. 3 led highbeam solo. 4 hid + Led highbeam together then the daylight driving lights go out.

Hi Miko,
Yes your build was wat partly inspired me, thanks for that����. The led Highbeam i have in the headlight is 40 watts, but it's got a system that reduces light output when it's gets to hot, so that should be safe. The two little led beams(they are part of the daylight driving system) next to the projector are 5 watts a piece, i didn't have anything other at that moment. If the give up i will have to replace them. ��

Gr Armando

First of all I'm glad to hear that My work partly inspired You, ESPECIALLY if that assumes completely separate wiring and relays.
Since Your LED-s have ability to control heat, there's no reason to doubt that everithing wil be OK.

Test ride already done, or it's still too cold for a night ride in NL?
Maybe some pictures of light pattern on the road/wall?

Hi Miko, yup still to cold for a ride, around zero degrees plus chance on icing on the road. Funny the store were I bought most of my parts asked the same question about the beam patterns, I have but some pictures below. 1 is just the daylight driving lights. 2 just the led highbeam. 3 hid projector incl daylight driving lights. 4 hid + led highbeam, without daylight driving lights, the led is much brighter than the hid.
