got any pics of the setup? since you have a relay i am guessing you ran a harness right? i was going to get 55w cause thats what i always run in my other vehicles but after installing dual 55ws on my R1 and running the harness i didnt want to go thru the same work on the vulcan.first mod I did to my 900 classic, mounted the ballast outside on rt side, and relay on the left side. 55w6000, h4.
Thank you for posting pictures of how you did yours. I'm having a little trouble with a couple of the pics though as they are rather blurry. It seems like you got too close for your camera to be able to focus so it's all blurry.here you go,
ive narrowed down my next mod to do to the 900. its either a sissy bar and hids or an exhaust.I Velcroed the ballast on the rt. side on the "neck", the igniter, removed the wire loom, screw through the igniter, loom wire, into the "neck of the left side. I also needed to adjust the vertical headlight beam slightly, screw is on the rt side as your looking at the headlight (for mine anyway). With the HID I feel that the headlight is all I need to see and be seen.
The problem with the stock headlight that kind of annoys me a bit is that in order to get the high beam to work effectively I would need to bring the angle of the low beam down more. Right now I have the low beam at an angle that kind of goes straight out with almost no drop so that I can hit those mirrors in front of me more for all the elderly in the area that just don't pay attention. This way I get seen a little more... I almost wish the headlight was mounted up about 6-8 inches from where it is. My friends is up higher than mine but his headlight has a bit more of a spill above the cut off which helps with being seen, granted we normally ride together so that helps but I haven't been able to get him to understand how to keep his position in his lane yet... lol. He's new to riding.well shouldnt you be able to aim the headlight a little higher? if you do want more light then either get a light bar or get fog lights and attach them to the turn signals to get a fake light bar (that is what i want to do) you can get projector fogs and place hids in them and use them with a switch and only put them on when you need them. they will give a good flood of light and light your way perfectly.
This is true but IDK, I think if I get the clearwater lights I'll be mroe than fine with the regular "low" beam of the HID.honestly riding with your highbeam is the best thing to do. i kniow a lot of riders that alway ride with their highbeam just cause of the safety factor... i like those clear waters simply because of the adjustable power.
Yeah, I'm going to get a couple different things adn they will include these items:let us know what you do.
as for installing, i would wire it independently of everything so you have total control with them
and for the brake, get one of those brake flasher kits.
