Have searched allot for the answer to this but can't find any so I'm asking you guys now.
I have installed HID:s on my AT, and the trip meter resets after a few minutes. Moved the ballast as far away as the cables allow it but still same problem.
How have you guys that fitted HID sorted it out?
My trip meter is acting a little weird as of lately. I could not pin point it, but this morning i discovered that It would only reboot with my dual beam HID kit on, when I start the bike. If they are off, it holds time and has no problem.
I doubt its a power thing, but what are the ods of the...
I got a hid light and it was gauranteed for 2 years, I had 3 replacements in that time and now the guarantee has run out and I want to get another.
Anyone got a hid light that has been reliable?
What suggestions are there for getting better light out of a 700 headlight?
I'm looking at how to improve my view now the evenings have drawn in as I'm not overly impressed with the lights on my commute.

I've never bothered with converting my headlamp bulb other than for replacement bulbs that offer a bit more light/night time brightness etc.
As my last bike, also a twin, blew a lot of bulbs in its short life and after the expense of all of the bulbs I bought I've already started thinking...
I' just bought a used 08 Transalp 700. :blob7:
I had before a 01 BMW F 650 GS Dakar. On these bike I had an HID/Xenon from touratech.
I would like to add it on my TA
To setup the aux light it's easy... but I'm unable to find a place for the ballast.
Where guys did you place it ...
Has anybody installed a HID kit in the XL700 yet?
I'm torn between just replacing the bulbs with Osram nightbreakers/silverstar or something similiar, or going the whole hog and installing a HID for the low-beam.
