Yes there is. Quite a few of them, actually. I just checked.Is there a headlight bulb tread??
They are not a problem in Vstrom reflectors. Nobody is enforcing federal legality issues.Some here like high intensity discharge headlights, but their use in headlight assemblies not designed for them can be problematic with huge glare problems in some cases, and they are always illegal to retrofit into these lights.
Do you have a link to the bulbs you are using? I've never used HID's in any of my vehicles, so I'm curious about the difference between them and regular ol' halogens.They are not a problem in Vstrom reflectors. Nobody is enforcing federal legality issues.
I'm not going back.
Ebay is loaded with HID links. For the bike, you need "bi-xenon" H4 bulbs and digital slim ballasts. 4300k is the color temp for daylight. Higher temp is bluer, lower is yellower.Do you have a link to the bulbs you are using?

The Silverstars are a whiter color than other bulbs I've tried, and that I liked very much, but I've burned out more than four of them in a short time. I'm sure the EB relay harness had something to do with it since it puts more voltage at the bulb socket.I have SS bulbs in both the Vstrom and my Ranger. I get better light and haven't had to replace a bulb in either vehicle.
6th season with the bike and 5th year with the Ranger.
Lynda noticed a good difference with both her single headlight bikes with the SS upgrade.
If the HID bulbs work in strom reflectors without excessive glare to on coming drivers, great. The problem is that ordinary headlights are designed for the halogen bulb filament to be in the optical center of the reflector, and whether that particular model bulb is made with a crosswise or lengthwise filament matters in the design of the light. The HID bulb doesn't have the filament, so its lighting doesn't exactly match the reflector, thus glare in many cases.I've never used HID's in any of my vehicles, so I'm curious about the difference between them and regular ol' halogens.
You could try a different approach. Pricey too!== The deer we have here are endangered and tiny, 40#-50# adults, I don't want to hit one, they're the only thing that stops the builders from paving over the entire island and building shore to shore condos......
