I just want to preface that I have no experience nor tried that HID conversion kit. However, I know that the above $6.00 bulb says H6M on the base. And searching H6M HID on ebay, I came up with that one. Looking at some of the other kits for H6M, they look identical on the base as the above $6.00 bulb. And the description for this kit starts off with H6M.
Based on what you are looking for, I am assuming you are considering converting your "cornering" lights to always on driving lights. One suggestion I would offer is to create an auxilliary circuit separate from the factory wiring harness and add a relay and switch to it. You will probably have to customize the wiring anyway to power these HID's so you might as well add an aux fuse block if you haven's already.
great timing on this issue. I just pulled out a bulb to find a number on it and there was nothing readable in it. I went to the cyclemax site to get the bulbs and ended up spending $50 on a few other needed items. what a great site I'm now putting together a wish list!
Well thanx to pwhoever i was able to order the right HID bulb i needed to convert my driving lights the job came out pretty nice,here's what it looks like,i also installed a set of retrofitted fog lights under my mirrors,they're HID as well...
Any problems of people flashing you for being too bright and in their face? Are the cornering HIDs bases you ordered the H6 base so there wasn't any modifications?
What are the lights mounted to the mirrors? Do you have part numbers what they are? What bulb base they have? How about putting a list together of what you used of part numbers/models so others can do something with theirs?
Thanks. The pics look great. I've been thinking of putting in the HIDs too.
yes they are H6M type bulbs,no modifications needed,no one has flashed me as of yet lol
and as far as the lights under the mirrors are concerned,they are $20.00 driving lights from autozone that use and H3 bulb,i put an HID H3 bulb in its place and i had extra Ballast, so i wired them thru a relay that is switch controlled,also the mounting for the lights under the mirrors was as such,i had the baker mirror wings and wasn't noticing much of a difference with or without them,so i removed the wings and used the hardware to hold the driving lights nice and easy,also the HID bulbs are rated at 35 watts as far as heat displacement is concerned so they run a lot cooler than the 55 watt halogen bulbs
I had a problem with the throttle cable today on my 1981 GL1100 standard (unfaired), on inspection the pull cable had jammed up somehow, I finally managed to get it relocated at the carb end but discovered it was failing at the throttle end and need replacing.
I've just had a look for...
I know the GL 1500 alternators are rather anemic in output. Thinking of upgrading to a larger output. I also have a GL1800 that seems to have quite sufficient output.
What is the difference in outputs between the 2. I know the 1800 is quite a bit more but can't recall how much more.
have anyone re-configured the brake system.(with new brake lines)
so that the front brake lever operates both front brakes; and the
rear brake pedal operates both rear brake calipers.
because many of us are long legged and useing the front brake is nicewith reason
