HID lighting

690 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  paules
I have installed HID lights on previous bikes and always appreciated the results. My new wee presents a problem in that it uses two bulbs, both with hi/lo capability, i.e., dual filaments. Normally, I would replace only the lo beam bulb with an HID bulb and retain the incandescent hi beam (because it takes about 20 sec for HID to attain full output). I presume that this issue has probably been discussed before, but I am a newbie. Can someone lead me to the topic or give me approach to this farkle. Thanks guys, Paul

Thanks for all your input. Given that the wee has dual hi and lo lights, I have decided not to "gild the lily" by installing a complex (i.e., solenoid operated) HID system. I try to avoid night driving (too many deer around) and I have to admit that the OEM lights are pretty good. Maybe later, if I still need to return to HID's, I would consider a set of "expensive" (compared to HID) PIAA's.
