Like many 950/990 owners before me, I have recently become a little concerned over the ability of my US spec headlight to cast enough light at night. For me this is mainly due to two factors: 1- I am doing more rallies that have me riding through the back of beyond at night and 2- after getting PRK surgery on my eyes my nightvision is not what it used to be...actually it just takes much longer for my eyes to adjust, but its a PITA and better lighting at night would be hugely beneficial. Anywas, I've researched the Euro spec options as well as some really nice custom jobs (Britania Composites "VooDoo" rig is very nice...but $$$. Worth it, but not in the budget this year. But I have found little to no info on simply swapping the stock bulbs with HID's....is there a specific reason for this? A buddy of mine who is a KLR rider and pretty savy with electrics, bought a 35$ HID kit from ebay and has put well over 13k on it....comes with a dedicated ballast for the HID system and requires some basic alterations, but the result is pretty amazing from stock. Coupled with a set of LED's for less than $100 mounted to the crash bars and I've got a lighting set up better than the Euro spec for less than $200 CAN. So, the question: Is/has anyone looked nto this "cheaper" option?
