Same here. Iím still considering either led or xenon. Iíd really like the purple glow. Not sure if led would even fit with the heat sink in its back having inner cowling there as well.

Had HID's on my old B1.. bright as day.. don't remember brand or rating but they were a cool blue color. All the bits fit behind the fairings, just had to get a little creative.

At night they lit up the planet.. kinda spoils you being able to see.

Here is the color:

I use RAINBOW XTec, just because they stand out a little more, and they tend to make car drivers look twice.

I don't often ride at night, but if I did, Id swap them for the usual H4's.

For Tech Questions Bike Model letters and Country are more useful than saying the year, for UK owners anyway, as registration year is not always the year of manufacturer model.

I bought Xenon Projection lights from amazon that is meant for a car . I built them in, took me a few days . Needed to run a line direct from the battery to make the xenons ignite when I use my Standard light controls. At night I can see very well and the lights throw very far ahead .

What's the windshield?

The head lights look trick, although no high/low beam (?). What really caught my eye was the wind screen with the spoiler at the top. What brand is it? Where does one find them? Looks like a nifty touring farkle.

MRA touring screen, sorry it’s not an MRA one.
