quick as

Hey Sean-o

he is not the quickest responder to emails, but will get there !

It is on my wish list to have one of his setups, I think what he does is built to live a bit ! instead of a horizontal headlight they are vertical twins, but obviously he will do it all.

Head lights

This is what i am thinking of having a play with down the track.

Then use these HID lamps at either 35 watt or 55watt lamps.
Apparently from what i amke of it the lamp is on all the time and then
to go from low to high beam the lamp angle changes.
Nifty idea.

http://www.delonixradar.com.au/hid-xenon/

This is what they say:

Most standard halogen light bulbs in your vehicle are 55watts. They produce around 700 – 1000 ‘lumens’ of light onto the road. 'Lumens' is simply the word given to the measurement of light output. Another word sometimes used to describe the amount of light output is "Candlepower". The difference between using "lumens" and "Candlepower" to describe the brightness is that "Candlepower" also takes into account the optics of the light (including reflectors, lens etc) whereas "lumens" is simply a measurement of the light output without any optics. Since optics vary from different light sources, there is no linear conversion from candlepower to lumens (or vice versa).

So for the pupose of discusing brightness in HID kits, we only use "lumens".

Traditional Halogen globes put out around 700 - 1000 lumens of light.
35watt HID kits by comparison put around 2800 – 3200 lumens of light onto the road (around 3 times brighter than normal halogen globes).
55watt HID kits put almost 5000 lumens of light onto the road – around 5 times brighter than normal halogens.

55watt HID are best suited for spot lights or high beams.

People always ask us which one to go for. Our opinion is that 55 watt HID lights are simply too bright for use in normal / low beam headlights. You may find the glare being reflected from wet roads, or street signs back into your eyes is too much with 55 watt on low beam lights.

Therefore we always recommend using 35 watt globes on any lights that will be used for low beam, and save the 55 watt HIDs for spotlights or single beam high's.

cost

Found an email that I had sent to Betta bikes, for the vertical headlights ( The ones that I like) it is around $675 (they use Hella and Narva) and for the Stator re-wind it is $295

The Stator rewind is dependent on what you want ! i.e full on burn the eyeballs outa skippies sockets !

or to having the chance to wire in your GPS/Phone, but still need to add into it a battery.

So all up they will re-wire the handle bar switch to handle the heat, extra wires from the stator,

Headlights and brackets that are polished and laser cut, so it depends on what you want

Set for 6 weeks in the desert






Refreshed the top end of the motor, upgraded the electrics (no AC all DC), steering damper and some bling bits too to make life easier.

What's money for if you can't spend it ay?
