My buddy sent me this link.

It looks like it would be good to me.

Some feedback please

Might not be legal, either ...


Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!

I would do it to have more visibility and to be more visible. A friend had it on his zx9.

The only thing nessecary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing

You hit the lights, I hit the gas...


THERE ARE ONLY THREE SPEEDS, FAST, VERY FAST, AND OH SHIT!

Ok how much longer are you going to fuck with me???

If you must know my friend wants to buy it for his bike.

I wanted to know if anyone here had any USEFUL info???

IE.. Does it fit easy, does it look good, does it get too hot and melt the housing, do the bulbs burn out quickly???

Plus to retort, no I do not think good visability is rice, now if I wanted to put the HIDS in my footpegs, well thats rice...

ya ya ya...

I installed a set of HIDs on my 10 back in September. I love them. Plenty of light, Boths "eyes" glowing at the same time. I hooked them up with a jumper to run both at the same time with the high beam switch so they can be shut off. The drain on the charging system is way less then the stock lights. It only uses more juice to start the lights but once they are on they use less. I picked up a set on e-bay that was a one piece ballast and starter for each bulb. Much easier install. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/e...item=7921926300 . If you need any pics or more info let me know.
