I found the stock lighting on these bikes to be pretty poor so I decided to take action! The Retrofit Source Morimoto Mini H1 7.0 projector with 5500k HID. Cyclops 4800lm LED for high beam smile

Thoughts, comments?

Interesting look without the mirror. Why go with the HID on the main beam? Does Cyclops not make an LED to fit? Just curious.

Much like luxury vehicles and most midrange vehicles for that matter, have started making projector lenses a standard for the greater focused output, this is what I was going for. Rather than simply blind oncoming traffic with bright bulbs in a reflector bowl, I chose to do it right and retrofit a complete projector. The light output is intense while not blinding oncoming drivers. It was a massive undertaking as these headlights are permasealed and never mean to be opened, I think the effort was well worth it. The light output is amazing and, I really like the aesthetics of it.
