And was there any difference in the light???
I have a few things to tuck in there and haven't made any firm decisions yet. On my '07, the ballasts are mounted in each side cowl, tie wrapped to the wiring, etc. The same option looks like it exists for the 2012.Where are you going to mount the ballist? I'm thinking of HIDs as well.
Do you use 35 or 55 watt? And what color temp? I always liked 5000KI have a few things to tuck in there and haven't made any firm decisions yet. On my '07, the ballasts are mounted in each side cowl, tie wrapped to the wiring, etc. The same option looks like it exists for the 2012.
Well, maybe I'm old and my eyesight is going but "Awesome" is not a word I would use for these lights. More likely "adequate" and I guess it depends on what car you drive. But I do a lot of driving in the dark on the way to work and my daughters Sonata has more "awesome" lights. :mrgreen:No, the bike and the lights are brand new, plus they are awesome! they give off as much light at night than my car. I don't know why you would want to replace it
I'm sure the HID's will be good.:yesnod:I have a set of HID H4 bulbs to install, but haven't done it yet. I like the color temp of the HID better than halogen.
I've used Silverstars too, they were a bit whiter than oem on my '05, but had short life, about 17k miles.I'm sure the HID's will be good.:yesnod:
I'm more thinking along the lines of more conventional replacements like the Silverstars. Just wondering if anyone really noticed any difference.
Yep, I did. A sliver of reflector cracked off. And yes, they are very good once adjusted.The headlights on my new bike were aimed VERY high!
If you think that your headlights are good now, then adjust them and see what they are really capable of!
ADJUST YOUR HEADLIGHTS!
Beware though, I recall seeing a post that someone mentioned that the tips of the buckets can 'clash'. Seemed like he broke something in the process.
