Sorry for the wait everyone. The powder coater screwed up and I had to go muscle them today. I've got a few of these ready and will have the rest by the beginning of next week.

Details are in the first post of this thread.

Got your PM and replied. Sorry for the trouble with the email, if I post it with no spaces you can't see that there is and underscore so I posted it with spaces.

I received my H4 conversion just before the Sandblast rally and I was glad I had it. The misty, rainy night stage would have been terrible if I didn't have the conversion fitted. Very elegant and simple solution to a common problem.
The round headlights are very efficient and provide a great pattern for road and trail riding at night. The fit and finish of this product is excellent!

Thanks Scott!

I'll be ordering as well!
... a great idea, and something that solves a problem (because retrofitting an H4 into a BD light, or TT... isn't going to give you decent beam patterns on the road or trail. It's simply a waste of time. ....trust me on this). Hats off to Boatman for the MOD!

I however, like the IPF version of the reflector a bit better than the Hella (I have both, have tested both... with Halogen and HID H4). I'll be fitting an H4 "Dual-HID" into the reflector, and using a 35W ballast for low beam and a 55W ballast for high beam. When I'm on the trail, I'll run both low... and high beam, and have the ultimate in high output lighting.

I currently do this in a more "street friendly" or "dual-purpose" looking light frame and have had great success... with incredible light output.

... can't wait to get my order!
I'll be using this when I'm NOT ever on the street, but camping or night rides in the desert.

Installed mine today and it's a huge improvement. I will be doing a half assed write up on Cafe Husky and can put it here as well if wanted.

Thanks Scott for answering my stupid questions, this is how this light should be shipped for people that ride on the street too.

Boatman has your ticket here in a brilliant kit that is a no brainer even for idiots like me.

Package arrived and I dove into it even though I did not have the time to finish the install that evening. Everything was nicely packed and instructions to boot.



Items included in the kit


BD Light taken apart and the first "ring" gets laid into place. Keep the BD gasket in place

Place the new Hella housing in place


Next place the second ring to the back of the light housing. Note the yellow dot at the top per instructions.


Add your bulb (sold separately), the rubber grommet and either a pig tail or you can use spade connectors and more or less make your own harness.




Almost there. Looks good.


Time for a :cheers:


I decided to use my stock plug from the OEM light as I will never use that light again and if I do I will worry about that then. Few splices and it was time to button it up.



Here are a few pics. STOCK Husky Headlight (since I had it on the bike already


BD Light with Boatman's Conversion (Low Beam)


High Beam

I'll be using this when I'm NOT ever on the street, but camping or night rides in the desert.

Got mine... and did an H4 Dual HID conversion to a Hella 7", and an IPF 7".
... so far, I like the IPF better when using the HID bulbs. Much cleaner output. However, here's a sneak peak into the Baja Designs plastic shell and my dual ballast/igniter install and two toggle switches to operate low and high of the HID. SO NICE to be able to run low beam, and high beam at the same time... to get incredible output for that night time ride!!




Sadly, I didn't take "in action" pictures on a ride this past Saturday. No moon... perfect desert weather... and a hundred miles all from 9pm to 2AM. So nice to have light to ride with.

BTW, the IPF requires a tad bit larger outer ring (obtained with light sanding), and the inner ring needs to be flipped over. Easy peezy!

Got mine and installed it. I haven't ridden at night yet but will report back when I do. The Baja Design O ring doesn't fit. I'm hoping the supplied O ring is all that is needed.
