So it sounds like the high beam solenoid is always sucking up power when on high beam? I imagine that's fine, but I was just looking at BMW car projector headlights, which use a system that has a large solenoid to move the shield, and a smaller, lower draw one to hold it in place.
So it sounds like the light pattern in the 11GS reflector works ok with the bixenon? I might go ahead and get one, since it looks like I could use another H4 on my DRZ. . .
