I've searched the forums and read about HID conversions, Halogen Driving Lights, LED Driving Lights, and the 300 Watt maximum output of a GL1100.
So far it appears that nobody has sprung for a good set of LED fog or driving lights since those that will improve the lighting run $200 plus. I also did not find any threads where anyone did actually install a HID replacement headlamp on an 1100. If you have, or know someone who has, I'd value your input.
I don't want to replace the turn signals with LEDs since I'll lose the signal auto canceling feature. I don't imagine that replacing the tail / brake light with an LED replacement bulb will "save" me much wattage, but I will probably do that as well.
Assuming I go with a HID headlight (~35 to 40 watt draw), is it likely to "save" me enough wattage to install a set of 55 watt halogen driving lights, or is this still pushing it?)
Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.
