Less current draw with a HID.

Bajadesigns sell a twin 4 inch setup too.
....would be interested in the hid for the stock hedlight Glenn ...got a link to a element that fits the housing? the spot on the top is a 100 watt h3 bulb so changing this out should be easy ? Baja has a lot of great options but adr is the problem ...i really wanted the 8inch HID's for a great light but no good for rd use ... i do ride my bike alot on rd

I had a feeling they where ADR approved or meet the requirments but that might have been the jw speaker ones.

Hid in the stock housing is not road legal.
Most of the time hid fitted in a reflector and lens not designed for hid can be a bit scketchy with beam pattern and normally the low beam cut off is way wrong and oncoming vehicles end up copping a shit load of glare plus the scattered light reflects off close road sign realy bad which can efect your distance vision.

yup your on the money mate ...i know the hid's wont be legal ..maybe glenn knew of some i dont know about

its all down to adr really ....i know i have other things on the bike non adr but im trying to keep it to a minimum ....the stock light is ok when run from a battery ...the spot is wired as a spot light on a car switched independently and wired to the high beam on the bike so that is ok i think .

You guys have got me thinking as lighting is definitely on the list, and I'd like to hear from anyone that runs HIDs..
The stock bulb is dual filament and HIDs are a single...
But as Sean-O says ADR is important (to some of us anyways) so a stocker and HID flood would be nice thing..

Also, what kind of batteries are people using, and where are they stashing them??

I like the look of these Hyosung ones and reckon they could easily be adapted.

See http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...postcount=2033

I used a single beam H4 HID insert from Jaycar. The headlight reflector is rotated 180 degrees to give sharp cutoff for oncoming drivers. The light spread on low beam is good enough for all but high speed riding. Proven to be robust so far

Anyone else seen the mad dude wanting silly money for crusty XR parts on EBay?! I got all excited before I looked at his asking prices...
