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

They are about $100 for the plug and play kit check out this link. http://www.fendereliminators.net/975880.html

There are two types of riders. Those who have been down and those yet to go down.

when i bought mine they said i already had them in because they had to relace the bulbs 2 pass inspection (one was burnt out). They parts guy said they were $100 a piece, but i think he was feeding me bullsh**.

I got them for my car and payed like $100 off ebay. Here are those pics i took with them on there 8K

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.

There are two types of riders. Those who have been down and those yet to go down.
