Re: headlight bulbs???

Of course this is only applicable to states with inspections on bikes.

Here in IL, anything goes, unless you get pulled over. Even then, its usually for improper tag display than anything else.

I've got Silverstars on my S and think they're not too bad. I've even ridden with a dark smoke shield without any issues.

Of course I live in a big, well-lit city so its not that big of a deal for me.

Re: headlight bulbs???

Sorry :P

I'm trying to get the headlights aimed properly before I take pictures and I haven't had time to do so yet. I'll grab a quick picture though of the unaimed lights.

Well, you can disable the OBD2 port very easily.

Plus, if it's anything like cars, support for a lot of commands is sporadic and inconsistent.

Re: headlight bulbs???

These are most likely poor quality, but has anyone seen hid projectors like these on a bike?

Re: headlight bulbs???

Those are reflectors I'm pretty sure, not projectors.

Re: headlight bulbs???

Are you running the stock reflectors or ones designed for HID lights? If they are the stock ones don't bother aiming them, you're going to blind oncoming traffic no matter how you aim them.

Brighter is better to a certain extent, but we aren't the only ones using the road.

Re: headlight bulbs???

I am using H7 bulbs (https://xenons4u.co.uk/h7-55w-super-...ght-bulbs.html) , they are super white and easy to install and many times better then OSRAM bulbs.
