1200GSA, PO converted high and low beams to HID. i know they generate some heat but i didnt't know it could break the glass lens. the bike has a Ztecnik plastic headlight guard, so im thinking this could be the reason for the break.
Anybody else have the same problem?
Im gonna drill some holes to vent the heat although I feel its too late..........

Could be I guess....
I've ran 50W Morimoto's on both the low and high beam sides of the headlight unit with a BMW headlight guard (which has spacers that keeps it ~ 1/2" off of the lens) for over 2 years now without cracking it.
My lens is warm - but never hot.
Edit - I guess from now on I'll make sure any headlight guard has sufficient space between the lens and the guard - Thanks.
