Very tidy set-up. Is the capacity adequate?

For the trips I take, the capacity is definitely adequate. If I where to take a multiple week trip, I would swap out the tail bag with more of a duffel bag type luggage.

Hey Zapp22,
I found a HID bulb at my local suzuki dealer that slipped right into the stock headlight. It was some aftermarket Japanese HID bulb. A little expensive for a light bulb but much better light at night. Cost was about 35 bones.

Mikey - how you got those lights mounted? are they tabbed onto the fork pinch bolts or what?

and, just to pitch this out there... anyone ever tried to find a HID single that could be fitted to the stock lens? i know there is such animal for the weestrom - just plug and play and doesn't eat too much power. a single would help a lot. I run an "offroad only" Wagner bulb in mine and its pretty white at night - i get an idea of what damage a HID in there could do.

Anyone got trick tail-lights as long as we're on this bender?

Talking lights and tires

Mr Mike, Where did you get the 35 watt bulb to change out from the 55's? Also what kind of tires are you running, they look like Dunlop 606's. Thanks Dood!

Walmart sells the 35 watt bulbs. I am running Kenda Trakmasters front and rear.

not
you bought a blue tinted halogen bulb.
true HID requires balast & additional wiring.

this bulb on the other hand would make a difference:

an eastern beaver wiring harness even more.

I've run this bulb in my headlight for a little over a year now:

Even though they warn about the over wattage it hasn't given me any problems, and it is very bright on high beam.
