I'm watching this thread with interest and have researched the few (quite old) threads on the subject in the AT forum.Seems hid are illegal is that right?
In that case any aux lights worth getting that don't break the bank but aren't pants?
Got mine from here. Not the cheapest but the customer care is beyond good. Any problems give them a ring and they'll answer your queries.Seeing as my headlights are melted due to a duff bulb arcing out can anyone point me in the direction of a hid conversion currently available on eBay that's suitable?
A pure white HID is 5000k, anything above that starts to become blue all the way up to 20000k which is downright purple.I don't want the 'blue' look so 4300k is fine for me. I'll try for 55w instead of 35w though.
Not the cheapest by far.... When I was looking for HID's for my GSA I was quoted £159 to convert just the headlight without main beam (but including a bracket to mount the ballast under the beak) I ended up spending £40 on ebay for a car kit with super slim ballasts which gave me two of everything (enough for headlight AND mainbeam) and 32,000 miles later they are still working fine.
Tick. :thumbup:A pure white HID is 5000k, anything above that starts to become blue all the way up to 20000k which is downright purple.
4300k bulbs were used in the early years and have a yellow tint.
One thing I would mention is the placement of the ballasts as I found if they were too close to the 07 Tripmaster the electronic field caused the unit to zero occasionally.
Lower section of the fairing frame should be ok, top of the fairing frame I found caused problems.Tick. :thumbup:
Local seller (ie bricks & mortar shop) told me the same thing today... that 4300k = yellow tint, 5000k = pure white.
How close is too close? Would cabled tied to the lower arm of the fairing frame be OK?
