I bought some projectors and now I need some insight, gonna retro this up in the next two weeks if anybody is willing to help with the wiring to this and what I have to do since I have H4 bulbs and a D1S bulb holders on the projectors.

And any thoughts on how open the back side of the projector can be cover if it even needs to be to protect against water damage.

This is going to be stock for now, no HID yet that will be a bit later on.

Thanks in advance.

Thinking maybe I can use a bowl and a cup cut to my needs, bowl cut to match housing and cup cut to match bowl and fit the plug for the bulb out the bottom of the cup haha, glue it all together and paint it up.

Mounting will be the same cut housing to what I need to glue the projectors in, the stock housing can be adjusted right? You don't adjust the bulbs themself to change the beam right?

Still need insight on the wiring for this project. Any help is appreciated or any thoughts may help.

Been looking around seems i'm the only one that has done this to a sv650s or should I say done a write up for the install(retro) on a sv650s 08.

The whole process will have lots of pictures and I will write it up the best I can, well time will tell if I can do this right, will be working on the homemade angel eyes once I get the projectors to fit around the lens perfect.

Well until that time come later.

Give it some time for someone who understands these lamps to pick up the thread. Not to many peeps undergo this mod.

What vehicle did you get these from?

Hoping to get help with the wiring as i'm not that good with it but can do it if told how as in soldering, heat shrinking and so forth is easy just need to know about hooking up the solenoid to the brights switch to change from lows to highs and the angel eyes I will tap into the plate light as I have to replace the second light that died after the first 2 hours installed, called company and they sent a replacement asap.

Oh and how do I go about the d1s bulb holder, do I just find a way to mount the h4 bulb in there cause I looked for a d1s bulb connector but came out with no luck.

And for adjusting the headlight beam is it all in the housing or is it for the bulb, cause if it is I got a lot of planning to go into for mounting the bulbs perfect.

My suggestion would be to use the bulb that's proper for the housing/projector you're using. Dont try to mix and match.
If you plan on using an H4 bulb then get H4 projectors.

You should pick one bulb and go with it.
If you are dead set on using H4's then try to find an H4 projector (is there even such a thing?)
Otherwise I think it'd be easier to source the proper parts for using the D1S projector.

Well I already have the d1s projectors and I need the connector plugs thats all so if someone could help with a link or something cause I looked and couldn't find anything, I ain't set on the H4 no big deal to me besides messing with the original wiring harness would love a plug and play set up if I could.

Instead of me telling you what you need to do, first tell me what you want or are trying to accomplish.

Having a dual-filament bulb is not the same tech as having a bixenon projector. The concepts behind both are different and I dont understand why you'd attempt to merge the 2.

Well I wanted the e46 projectors as they are very good projectors and I wanted to make them work but didn't think it would be hard finding the d1s connector plugs.

Wasn't trying to merge them, was trying to get the e46 projectors to work without messing up the stock wiring harness and I need the d1s connector plugs to do that I guess.

If I have to cut into the stock wiring harness to do this then thats fine I just want it to be able to go back to stock just in-case I wanna sell the bike is the main point here and still have great projectors at the same time.
