which HIDs did you go with?

Care to give a write up on that install?

I think that these need more than the H4s that are in there.

Ahhhh so you installed blue headlights NOT HIDs

I'm looking for the kinda HIDs which produce light by means of an electric arc between tungsten electrodes housed inside a translucent or transparent fused quartz tube. You know the one where the tube is filled with both gas and metal salts, and the gas facilitates the arc's initial strike...
Then once the arc is started, it heats and evaporates the metal salts forming a plasma, which greatly increases the intensity of light produced by the arc and reduces its power consumption.


It was just an idea, I don't know, I might be happy with my H4s, I dont know yet...

Please pardon the blatant Wikipedia plagiarism.

and not to thread-jack but those are Aztec8s dual 4.5" lights

and now to pic whore....

heres what one of them looks like installed on my bike before i changed the other one out , not bad for $10 hid bulbs , i know there not the tru hid setup but i'm not spending a 100 some bucks to have a little bit of a bighter beam, when i can get almost the same effect with these.And this set isnt the blue ones , the color is just white.

yeah your right those are a nice improvement.

I think I will skip the HIDs and just run a relay set up to the bulbs. That way I can run a higher wattage (I have metal housings) and not have to worry about my 11 yr old anorexic gauge wiring or my switch frying.
