Beware of putting in a higher wattage bulb as reports of melted housings exist. One of the brighter white bulbs gives a better lights, also I have heard of the reflectors being scrubbed clean to give a brighter light too.

Adding driving lights will light up the road at night, and LED driving driving lights make you better seen in the day without any additional drain on the charging system.

Best way to be seen during the day though is with the use of a headlight modulator.

"I never saw him" instead of "I never looked for him".

Has anyone done the HiD conversion on their bike? I have an '84 Interstate. I'm guessing that the ballast would fit in the right side of the fairing under the pocket?

Check with neoracer, he's got the HID setup on his 1200.
