Thanks for the response. Wow, 4 yrs? It did sit on my shelf for a while before I put it in, but I didn't think it was that long.

I'll snap a photo and send it to you.

Question Auxiliary HID set

Sorry if this has been asked before, but here goes. I'd like to mount two of your auxiliary HID lights into the headlight area of my '02 F650GS Dakar. I like the look of the Touratech Twin DE Projector Lights (http://www.touratech-usa.com/Store/P...w-F650GS-01-04) but I think the price is ridiculous and I've heard the performance isn't great.
It seems like it wouldn't be terribly difficult to make some sort of bracket to hold both of the HID auxiliary lights (http://www.futurevisionhid.com/produ...light-kit.html) in the space where the headlight used to be. Any thoughts on this? Are they the ideal product for this type of application or do you have something better suited?

Has anybody tried anything like this before to get two projectors into the headlight area?

Also, would it be possible to wire one of the two lights to function as the low beam and have the high beam be activated by the stock low/high switch on my handlebars?

Thanks!

Colebatch did this on his X-Challenge build. He used hid projectors from a car.

I dont have experience installing on a vstrom myself but others may be able to comment. The biggest challenge typically is the disassembly process to gain access to the bulbs, after that its pretty straight forward to do the conversion.

Good day Bruno, I was trying to figure out on your website where you are in Canada?

I'm looking for a 35W 4300k slim setup for a 2012 F800GS. I searched out all the posts here about CANbus but some of the info is maybe outdated. An old post said you always recommend using a relay on a motorbike but I also read it can cause an error with the CANbus. What's the advantage of the relay?

Thanks

Timely post, I just purchased a 1012 R1200GS with CANBUS and want to know what I'll need to upgrade and what is the difference from a conventional kit.
Cheers, James

We are located in Friendly Manitoba.

Relay kits:
Some motorcycles with Canbus will work with a relay, others wont. I dont exactly understand why that is but typically just using the canbus ballast solves the error. Our relay kits are made with heavy gauge wire and offer a direct connection to the battery to ensure a reliable start every time, and it wont strain the factory wiring. Occasionally when not using a relay, a user may find they have to turn the lights off and back on when first starting them, not typical but can happen. BMW's have plenty of power and in most cases shouldn't be required but I usually recommend them especially for motorcycle applications for a more robust, reliable system. Everything has water-tight connections and a simple plug-n-play design so installation is quick and easy with or without the relay kit.

We now have 35W and 50W Canbus ballasts compatible with BMW's. Most models 2009 and up will get a warning indicator with normal ballasts and/or may not function at all. Email me direct if you need help sorting out the options.

Ok, that makes sense. I didn't understand what I relay was even though I have hard wired accessories to the battery before. Worst case I'm used to ignoring "error" lights anyways

I've camped in northern Manitoba this time of the year before! I was still motorbiking a few weeks ago but with 1 inch of snow now I give it a break haha

Camping at this time of year could be interesting! We are at -30C at the moment!

If you have any other questions, let me know.

Apparently I missed this post, sorry! The wiring/switching, low/high can be configured in any way you want, just let us know and we will set it up the way you want it.

How about something like this for mounting?

Hello Adventure Rider World! This thread sure has been very quiet for some time.

I know the trend is now LED, and we are cautiously steering in that direction and introducing some fantastic new LED products. No doubt it will replace HID eventually for headlights and add-on auxiliary lighting systems. However cost per lumen, HID still is a lot more affordable than the high end LED's available. And as far as drop in replacement bulbs go, even the absolute best LEDs cant match the HID for performance plus the cost is still out of reach for most at this point, but things are moving in the right direction.

We are going to start phasing out some of the rarely used HID/LED systems we have in stock and replace them with the latest generation systems we have been testing. To kick start that, nearly everything in-stock has been discounted to prices we have never had before. These sale prices will last for the entire month of October, or until stock is out on any particular item. Up to 75% on some items! No need for any discount codes, just find the item your interested in and the sale price is already listed.
Any questions or custom requirements, you know I'm always here to assist. Gday all!
