990/950 Twin Hella (90mm) Lighting Project

This is a personal project of mine. However I have to pay for a batch water jet order. When I'm finished I will post some details and sell a couple sets to share the cost and recover some of the R&D cost.

LED running light:

The finished project will have the following:
Twin Hella lamps (90mm Reflector Style High, 90mm Projector Style Low)
High beam will have Halogen Bulb.
Low beam will have HID
It will come with complete custom made wiring harness. (Just plug and play)
Kill switch to turn low beam completely off (for US models)
Individual relay for each lamp.
When High beam is ON, low beam will remain on (since the lamps are running from separate circuit connected the battery directly, there will be no load issue)
Custom bracket to mount the Hella lamps.
The bracket will be attached in similar way as the stock light housing.
You will be able to use the stock windscreen or any other after market windscreen made for the bike.
Working on a solution to have LED angel light as running light. (low priority)

The idea is not new. But I want to make exactly what I wanted. I've used Hella lights with HID conversion on my other bikes. So that's a priority for me to improve the overall lighting quality. And I believe I've managed to keep the cost WAY down compare to other comercial options.

I'm looking for about 10 people to get on board. The kit will not be exactly cheap, but that's because I'm using quality parts. Don't need any commitment, but I'd like to get an idea of how many people would be interested.

Just a few pictures of the project.
