    I've recently been given a HID set for my 650GS. However, on installation, the only thing that works is that the solenoid moves the bulb when I change from bright to dim. There is nothing from the lights. The bike has only been idling when I've turned the lights on... I don't know what to look...

    What's the considered opinion on Aux lighting? :help: My understanding is that fog lamps have a shorter, but wider beam than driving lamps, which have a longer and narrower beam. Happy to be corrected on this. But on this basis, I am thinking that driving lamps would be more useful than fog...

    My headlight is not the best, in fact I think it was the inspiration for Elton John's "Candle in the wind". I have changed the bulb for a higher wattage and whilst the high beam is now sufficient, main beam I consider it dangerous to ride though I do live out in the sticks with no streetlights...

    I finally rode the bike in the dark after fitting the HID light (been moving/renovating house). The dip beam is fab but the high-beam is absolutely pants. I ended riding on main the whole time. Have I done something dumb I wonder? It's not possible to mount the bulb (burner) upside down so I'm...

    Hi, I bought a HID light 10 months ago, and final got round to 'fitting' it. Fitting it amounted to connecting all the wires and stuffing the bits into the nose fairing. Nothing is fixed down. So, will the ballast or the other 'black box' be destroyed by vibration? If anyone has done a decent...

    The Dakr's headlight is hardly its best feature. I've gone for a 100/80W bulb to stay alive but to be honest I only fell really comfortably on the open road with both low and high beam on (my swtitch handlilly sticks to allow this. So, trawling e-bay I find HID (High Intensity Discharge)...

    Hello to one and all. If this is an old topic then i apologise in advance. Any thoughts on the use of HID lights on a 650CS? Has anyone fitted hem and if so how good are they. Jason at Bling lights has said they will improve my ability to see on dark mornings. Just concerned about the heat they...
