    CORRECTION ON THE TITLE, SHOULD READ Bulb instead of Valve


    Hi there,

    I am in the process of trying to install Head Light Modulators (from http://www.kisantech.com) on my Duke and it seems that they do not know the bike (as it seems too new for them) and were asking me what type of bulb i have on my bike (H7, H3, H8, H9 etc... ).

    Does anyone know? if so, how difficult would it be to get this modulator installed? anyone has experience with these?

    any help will be greatly appreciated
    thanks

    H4 is little strange choice for bike with dual projectors...
    Normally bulbs used in projector lights are single filament type...

    Best is if you remove bulbs currently in bike and check types?

    If the Duke 690 has a HB3 bulb as the manual says, it is the same as the Rallye Replica and the Duke 2 IIRC. Definitely NOT the same as an H3 bulb!
