    New problem: Round peg, squared hole! To Dremel or not to Dremel that is the question.
    Finished for today going to go eat cake.

    Hello CADDIESHACK! :wave

    I'm surprised we haven't seen you in either the MD or DE Tag-o-Rama games, the tags have certainly been near you. Then again I am not a tag historian, I would have to see what they say.

    I believe the delmar tag is very close to Pittsville, actually I know it is.

    Seriously, right? I haven't followed much baseball since I moved away from Durham, NC (Go Bulls!), so it's nice to see them doing well. I attribute their victories to me moving to town. :lol3

    If you decided not to dremel the housing, consider one of these kits.- http://easternbeaver.com/Main/Products/products.html -

    If, like my Bandit, the stock headlight wiring on your bike leaves a bit to be desired you will not get all the light you can from the bulbs. I installed one of their kits in my Bandit and the increase in light output was astounding. This is due to the fact that a small drop in voltage to the bulb results in a big decease in light output.

    I can't find the light right now, but a chart I came across on Hella's site showed a 15% drop in voltage resulted in close to a 40% drop in light output..

    Using my Bandit as an example, after the kit install I can see almost as far down road with the low beam as I could before with the high beam.

    Here is the kit, in its entirety:

    Including instructions :deal

    So I've shone the bulbs,

    I have decided NOT to Dremel. Only because it would get me nowhere because the retaining ring won't fit over the HID bulb's base.

    Need the bike for THIS week-end so for now a small retreat.

    Why put back the original?

    02TAC, Thank you for the link. I will investigate further, when I have no deadline.
