Does anyone else think an Adventure with its tanks off looks like a dog that is shaved for the summer?
Auxiliary lights are IMO an absolute neccessity. I dont even need my factory lights when I turn these on.
HID's, no need for anything else
Everytime I think about getting AUX lights I find something else to spend the money on. I don't really need them after I went to HID's.
Luckily I bought this the day before hurricane Sandy hit from a guy in Atlantic City. The other bikes in his shed all suffered salt water damage. 1040 miles on this baby. Still like new.
That's some seriously low miles. Good find!
HELL YEAH!! Nice!!
I read the "no need for anything else"
and in the first photo was a GS.. and it was gone in the 2nd photo.
I didn't realize it was about headlights
Nice catch Geek
The GS is on the trailer where it belongs...
As you should....
In the *caged* trailer? Must be one savage bike.
HID question: The standard US headlight is two bulbs. Is one high beam, one low beam? Or is one of them a running light.
After installing a few of the DDM hi/lo HID kits, I'm not keen on the "wobble" the bulb has in the socket, but I am keen on the light output.
Which way should I go for an HID conversion? Euro headlight assembly?
Yes, the US and Euro headlight assembly has one light for low, one light for high. The difference is that the US has only one light on at a time; either the low or the high beam. The Euro light has one or both lights on; the low is always on and the high beam turns on to add to the low beam, not to replace it. Also the way the reflectors are shaped is different and the pattern of light is actually better. Personal experience.
I have HID50's in my Euro assembly and haven't noticed any "wobble". Wish the ballasts were a bit smaller and the wires a bit shorter so I can shoehorn them into place easier but all in all I'm very pleased.
Dont know what the US setup is.
Mine is a Euro headlight, high is H3, low is H7.
Both are 55W HID slim digital, not DDM.
It also has a little 5W running light.
No wobble, perfect fit.
Best $85 I ever spent............apart from the 220W of HID I put on the GS
Euro with HID
All fits very nicely
I'm not sure that this is correct.
My understanding is that the US light has only a pilot up top. It is a dual filament main bulb.
The Euro light has separate bulbs up high and down low.
A graphic I made a few years ago that has been posted in the HOW. This is my US light on the left and my Euro light on the right:
Please correct me if I'm wrong.
As far as I know Thats dead on Geek.
