Unhelpful post follows :
All the above is why my high beam is still a stock globe lol...
The day i have to go in there to replace it because it is BLOWN or i have something else to do under all that lot, THEN ill replace it lol.
Sounds like too damn much work otherwise!
Meantime my D2D's on high beam are usually a treat - though i dont even have them on the bike right now .
My thoughts are that I should change it to HID for better night riding - my only complaint about this bike. But I haven't done it. Maybe I will when the high beam bulb dies, but when will that be?
Before you consider going to HID for your high beam, you might want to re-read Bruce C's comment in post #10 where he talks about the 're-strike' period for an HID fixture. This is why I went with a high performance, non-HID 'Xtreme' bulb for the high beam.
I really like HID's in the two dipped lights, however.
You need to look at a set of aftermarket lights if you want to flood the area some.
Like i say i have twisted throttles D2D lights and they are just fab. I have one set on spot and one set on diffuse, though it would work better if both were set the same it has to be said, my riding varies enough to call for both.
The projectors simply cant be set for flood lighting because under normal riding any oncoming car would be dazzled, and in most countries thats illegal. The D2D's are convenient with wiring for both high and low beam modes, and their own separate hard switch.
Cost a bit of money though (~US$300 i think), thats the only downside. Maybe a group buy would drop them some. I really cant rate them highly enough, but the sprint really needs a custom bracket made up to fit them (bit of DIY skills sees to it easily enough).
