If you install HID on both the high & low beam is there any more power consumption than the stock system?
Where are you located in Canada?
The Heated grips and the GPS wouldn't make much difference with the Lynx standard lighting. However, if you've got heated grips, then it's also likely that you may want to run a heated vest and that would probably be too much.
The safe bet is to go with an HID low beam. The HID high is obviously better again, but the overall electric power gain isn't as great, becaus high is generally not used as much (particularly with the low beam being so effective on it's own).
HID low combined with hte Halogen high is our most popular combo on the Lynx.
