HID Install assistance

Even though all your 1OffMotorsports motorcycle hid conversions are very similar with the installation, all of our bikes can in fact have their small quirks. So the point of this thread will be for me to list very brief installations of different motorcycles and/or ones that you adv riders suggest. More often than not 80% of the installations will be the same, and can be explained anywhere from 5-10 steps. Most of the time the fun part is getting clever to hide the ballast. Atleast the 1Off ballast is among the smallest on the market. I figured this thread may help to clarify.

Step 2- Remove the cap from your headlamp housing. Drill the cap in the centre to with a 7/8" diameter hole.
Step 3- Pass the HID wires attached to the bulb through the hole. The provided grommet will fit right into the who to seal and make water proof again.
Step 4- Pass the grommet assembly through the cap. Squeeze grommet into place to seal hole again.
Step 5- Once everything is through the rubber protector it’s time to plug in the POWER and GROUND wires to test your HID light system. Insert the HID male pins in the following order into the socket, the socket facing you:

With Everything plugged in externally, power on your bike and turn on your lights. If you experience any
Step 6- Make sure not to touch the bulb as it can damage the optics. Remove the bulb clear plastic protection (unscrew the top), then cut/crack the bottom part with pliers to remove pull back & cut/crack the bottom dark bulb protector (this is needed to make space in the cap for the original halogen bulb connector)
Step 7 – Place and tie all the components to your motorcycles assembly in a well hidden place, make sure everything is tied down, and does not interfere with steering damper operation.
Step 8 – Secure ballasts in place with provided ties, make sure that there is no play and they do not interfere with steering, clean up wires carefully, tie everything downward make sure nothing is left lose.

To Gen who messaged me on the K1200LT. Guide for low beam only since it is preferred by most riders so they can keep the high beam flash.

1.Disconnect negative terminal on battery and remove headlamp cover.
2.Drill the hole and follow instructions similar to the above.
3.Plug and play at this point with the wires and battery lead.

Pretty much same as above for the low beam option
-Cheers

Finding good spot to install ballasts - F800GS

Hi,
I need some help with finding a good place to install ballasts in F800GS. I purchased kit for both Low and High beam so there are two ballasts and after inspecting possible places where they could be mounted I found that they either get in the way of forks when turning, or would make it more difficult to remove the side covers if ballasts were attached to them.
If anyone has any experience with that in F8 I would much appreciate some photos and hints.

-Cheers

Glad i can help

Perfect i am glad i could point you in the right direction. We are working on install instruction videos. We are looking to get video for a wide variety of bike makes, models, and years.

If there is anyone out there that has been on the fence about upgrading to HID's, 1 Off MotorSports has a great offer. To speed up the process of having a vast installation video library we are implementing a great incentive if you are willing to video tape your installation.

Offer;

On any kit 1 to 3 bulb set ups. Use your promo code for $10 off at the point of purchase, then while installing your lights record raw footage of the installation. Send us the raw footage and you will get a sizable rebate.

For:
Single beam kit you will receive a $30 rebate.
Dual Beam kit you will receive a $70 rebate.
3 Beam set up you will receive a $100 rebate.


For more questions about the promo or how to send us your footage you can personal message or email me at spence@1offmotorsports.com . I look forward to hearing your responses.

Sincerely,

Spencer Tibbs
