Hey vee two, the 50w HID will be overkill for low beam, trust me. 35w for low is plenty. Take particular care with aiming the low beam, as the r/h throw will blind drivers when you are overtaking them, these things are seriously bright.
Mates have had good results just by running a power feed directly from the battery to the lights via relays triggered by the std wiring, as the std wiring has so much voltage drop the lights barely glow orange, but when you stick a direct feed they work pretty well standard. It's cheaper than HID and acceptable results.
Also, 6000k is far too blue/white, I've got them on mine and wish I'd gone with 4300k, which is plenty bright and white enough. (The higher the heat range, the less output actually).

Mainly looking for "bolt on" options as I'm lacking metal working tools.

Thanks for helping (again )

I have the Fastway F5's on my 06 640A and they did fit with some work. I had to grind away a bit of aluminum off the ktm hanger bracket as the pivot on the Fastways are a little thick. Used a die grinder and some sandpaper. Big improvement to me as the angle is a little better when riding aggresive.

I did the exact same thing for mine - An '01 Adv
They work a treat, but my preference is for the older style grubscrews as opposed to the new "rip the bottom of your boot out" pointy studs.

Cheers

Agreed, had a set of the pointy Fastway's on an older 450, trashed a pair of Tech 6's during one cross country race. I was pissed. The newer F5's dont trash my gear at all. Just as grippy!

Got them (Pivot pegs) on my EXC and there is nothing better for that style of bike and my feet up style of riding (too old for that flashy motocross flair in the bush), but they are quite a bit smaller than Fastways.
IMO the Fastways are hard to beat for the long trips.
Bloody good value too.

Pegs

Thanks for all the info on pegs. I like the idea of the pivot pegs but really want to try them first. I think I'm going to go with the Fastways. Turns out I'm going to be down for a while nursing an injury so I'll have plenty of time to grind/file/sand/fit.

He is selling it for 75$ plus shipping.. That sounds great to me.. There are some for sale now and then but normally over a 100$.. I have the bst bible book marked its such a good, simple to follow write-up! Next thing to do on th list.. I'll need a new throttle cable and try get one of loaded's fuel mix screws. Then I just have to make sure the jetting is good and runs well= 400+ km range from a tank, much better than 280km! I'm not racing so its not for me. The guys I've riden with have no problems with their Bst.

7 months without my bike has been torture
