I also used some curdled knobs to mount the Lexan rock guard so it can be easily removed for cleaning.

HID Low beam:

HID high beam:

Dash w/ Garmin Montana and OEM speedo:

The red button on the side turns off the low beam. Saves some wattage when offroad riding or using electric gear or trying to start the bike w/ a weak battery.

Additionally I plan to install a 10 second delay relay on the low beam that way the light will only come on after the engine is running.
Nice install and the delay relay is a great idea for the low beam. I think I'll investigate that for standard fitment. We have lexan guards being manufactured now which will replace the stick on protectors we currently use.
