H.I.D Kits or a Retro fit

Sorry i have not made any post since my last one. Deployed. But i have a question. I want to upgrade my lights and i know there is kits out there for HID but my question is Do this kits run both light at the same time and able to use high too. cause where I leave i plan on doin alot of mountain riding so brights will be nice. Or just do a retro fit and get some acura projectors? Thanks in advance

retro fit, plug and play HID's cause dangerous glare for oncoming drivers when installed to halogen housings

the light pattern will be much better AND the bike will look better too

Any should be fine, i would say look on EBay that is probably where you will find your best prices at.

I was always told if you buy them in a package they cost more. I payed $40 for my 10K bulbs in my car and the packs were probably $50

Just find out the bulb size and kind and order it that way!

Anything above 8000k you will loose intensity and brightness, so visibility will decrease. The kits I recomended in a previous post are plug and play. Your headlight plugs plug into the ballast so you just plug them in. I had them in my old yamaha.
