Well now i got my bike back from the shop, its time to get back onto this mod. i think i finnaly have it figured out how i will do it. My plans are to swap out all the lighting on the bike. All signals and gauges going to led's and the headlight and new driving lights to hid's. This is the thread to another board that i have been on to gain help and insight on the topic. http://candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?t=109209
Any ideas or suggestions feel free.
Oh, before its mentioned... I know that there are premade led stuff....but i have chosen to make my own for several reasons....
#1 To say I made them, and for a truely custom look
#2 Most LED premades just suck
#3 premade hid conversions for the h4 and so on are very bad and in some cases hazardous. I will be swapping in DOT approved parts...therefore I will remain DOT ok
#4 Most LED premades arent as efficent. I.E. by using resistors, they burn electricity as heat and in some cases burn more juice then the original bulbs.
Now thats outta the way... For the hid conversion i plan to use a Acura TL projector for the Headlamp. I will also need to purchase a 7"? headlight with a clean smooth lense. I will post pics to show how i will mod it. The Acura TL was chosen cause it has a device that will move the bulb giving both high and low beam on the same bulb. For the ballast i plan to hunt down a modified denso that will switch from 35 watts to 50 when i want it. Hid driving lights will be Hella micro dx with spot lenses on them (all flood lighting will come from headlamp).
Hids have to "ignite". meaning the can draw up to 10A for about 10 seconds when turning on. I figure if i do all the led mods and i have each lamp turn on individually(overide switch for the headlight), i can avoid any damage to the electrical system. Whatcha think?
any other questions feel free to ask..... TIME TO TAKE THIS BIKE INTO THE 21st CENTURY!!!!!
any ideas on parting in a fuel injection system :P
