It looks as sexy as hell hey.....

Trouble being, this type of light is super directional, and when the bike reacts to the road, the lights really bounce up and down and "flash" in oncoming drivers eyes, also, when a pillion, or luggage is on the back, they tilt up as well.....

Technically, these type of lights are meant to have a self levelling function, which this conversion, from the few i have seen, does not have this, and as far as the legal side of things goes, they aren't roadworthy.... (here in Oz at least)...may be different elsewhere......

Definetly looks a lot better hey.....

The xenon isn't so much a time thing, but a money thing ?

I am about to replace my headlight , mounts are broken, so i might expirement wit the lens removal on the old one....

I've been wanting to update the halogen headlight on my N version SV. But after doing research I discovered that the cheap Chinese headlights perform poorly and the good quality headlights are crazy expensive!

I'm feeling ya on that.....

Partly on this theme......does anyone else have trouble with their marker lights ? I have swapped out the globe holders for new ones
and the longest i can get a gloabe to last, standard or LED, is about a month.....sometimes even when i put a new one in they dont work....

Looking at the headlight wit the lens off, i wonder if it is worth modifying the hole to take a more solid globe holder, with a different globe....
