Big Dom,

Nice idea on modifying the light. I never thought of that.

I have been running the HID in my setup mostly. So far have not aggravated any motorist so will continue with that for awhile. If it becomes a problem I will use your approach. Thanks for posting.

Just found this thread after seeing it mentioned in the Husky TE-610 thread.

I recently bought a TE-610 that came with the 8" BD headlight only and although I like the light output when I need it, I really hate not having a low beam. I keep the light pointed low as to not blind on coming drivers, but on a back road when I need the light, that just gets annoying. I have really been on the fence about replacing this light with something else as I just wasn't happy with this setup, but this conversion might be exactly what I need.

So I assume with the H4 conversion, you get a proper low beam cutoff? With the high beam, do you get a bit more wider beam and is the light output still pretty good? It appears the stock BD beam although shines very far is pretty narrow also and doesn't really illuminate the side of the road very well to watch for animals.

Take a look at the first post for pics of the illumination. The pic of the low clearly shows the the cutoff and the hi shows the spread.

Thanks, I took a closer look and I like what I see.

If you want to retain the full 8" refelction (as opposed to 7") you would need to find a used H4 headlight for removing the globe fitting.


While the retrofit of an H4 bulb in an 8" reflector will allow you to use a hi/low bulb you do not get the true hi beam and low beam. The lens of an H4 reflector is cut to give you the cut off for low beam. On low beam all that will happen is the light output will be cut by 5-20watts (depending on the bulb) but will have full dispersement just like the stock 8" desert style reflector with no low beam cut-off. Hi beam will be pretty much the same as the stocker. The pattern of the beam will also depend on how you arrange the bulb in relation to the reflector.




I know you mean well by posting your discovery in my Vendors thread but I produce these conversions for people that need an approved light to be street legal. This is the Vendors Section, if you feel so passionate about your modification please start a thread of your own in The Garage.

Thank you, Scott

Conversion kit is dead on! Went 1 step further with a 35 watt HID conversion high/low solenoid bulb and electronics off Ebay for $35.00. It fit perfect, great pattern and lumen output (basically, will melt steel at 30 paces), an unbridled success! Thanks for the kit!

Dual 8" Kit

Is this kit also compatible with the Baja Designs dual 8" assembly?

I have always wanted this kit:
http://bajadesigns.com/ProductDetail...8-Inch-Halogen

but I would like the ability to have hi/lo beam.

Thank you, I am new to this message board

As far as I know BD uses the same buckets for the dual as the single in which case they will be compatible.

Moved my BD 8" c/w conversion and HID installed, from my TC450 to my newest "adventure bike", a converted HD XR 1200. Light is fantastic on the road as well! Thanks Boatman!
