Has anyone picked up new headlamps from canadian tire for their Vstrom? If so which ones fit it?
If deer are a hazard you face daily, I suggest that you choose a new route.thanks, dark in the mornings going to work these days and want some brighter lamps so I can see the deer on the road.
Are the headlights aimed correctly? The low beams can be as high as possible as long as they don't blind oncoming drivers. Do check that the bulbs are correctly seated in the light assembly. The bulbs can hang up and put the filament out of the optical center of the reflector so the light doesn't go where it should.thanks, dark in the mornings going to work these days and want some brighter lamps so I can see the deer on the road.
I hit one with my truck three weeks ago $3400 to the front end. deer are on ever road around here.If deer are a hazard you face daily, I suggest that you choose a new route.
If none is available, how about getting auxiliary lamps that give a wide and low beam, for two reasons: you give the deer much more warning of your approach, and you illuminate any of the critters hiding in the dingweeds alongside, for example, Peneshula Road.
A deer sacrificed itself and did $700 damage to my minivan,
so I give those walking roadblocks plenty of respect.
I hope you do the same, and miss every one of 'em!
If you haven't yet, you should really consider installing the headlamp relay kit from eastern beaver. The brighter light draw more current and the stock wiring is already marginal. Several people have fried their high beam switches with stock lights.Put in the brightest silverstar Canadian tire sells and this morning ride to work was nice and bright
