OK, as some on here know, I bought my Speedtriple from another member on this forum this past February. I just received in the mail a couple days ago the upgraded lamps that the PO sent in to SICKHID. All this time I have been unable to ride-for lack of headlights. This wasn't so bad since our weather is just beginning to warm up enough. Now that I got the lamps- I can see the quality of the workmanship that when into this mod. HOWEVER, I am having second thoughts about going to all the trouble to mount them_ running/hiding electrical wires, finding a place to mount the added electrical componets(ballasts), a location to drill a 3/4" hole to mount a round rocker type switch, etc. I don't think I would of bought into this lighting option myself. I don't really ride that much at night. I think the OEM would be just fine... less worry about reliability over the long haul too I am guessing...
What I am considering is selling these lamps and buying a new pair of OEM's
I dunno- I do like the unique sexy look of the new HID's but...
Just kinda looking for other's opinions, experiences and thoughts
