2011 750 Morimoto H1 Retrofit

Since I have not seen any other 2011+ 600/750 retro fitted I though I would give it a go. I purchased the Morimoto mini H1 projector with the 5000k bulb. As you will see from the pictures they are a quality product and yes they are bi-xenon.

First I want to say there is minimal space provided in these housings. On my first attempt I tried to use the shroud that was provided with the kit. I just rushed into it and installed it without thinking, when I put it all together I could not adjust the projector down because the shroud would make contact with the highbeam reflector, also the housing would make contact with the headlight cover and leaving a mark of black paint on the inside of my headlight.

So after driving at night with the headlight pointed into the sky I decided to remove the projector and try something else. I decided to not use the mini gatilin gun shroud and just go with the bare projector. I also decided to paint the whole reflector black because I think a bare projector would stick out with a shiny backgroud. The light output is what you would expect from a high end projector.

This has been an all day event, taking everything apart twice is not fun. Here are multiple pictures of the install and the second install. Comments welcome

I know it sucks about the covers, but the dealership is ordering me new mirrors. They cannot just buy the covers.

Well everything was a gift and spare parts.

When I was pricing it, you can get the projector/bulbs/ballasts for about 150.00 from the retrofit source. I also have a HID in the high-beam just for fun. I will get some night shots later tonight.

They can order the mirror caps. I've done it. Search the "I lost my mirror nut cover thingy" thread for part numbers.


Badass, btw.

Re: 2011 750 Morimoto H1 Retrofit

Great job! I'm wondering if you think something like this could be done in an 09' 6k high beam housing?

I am not certain about that. I did talk to the folks at TheRetroFitSource and they mentioned that they will soon have an even smaller projector that should fit into my highbeam housing so that might work when it becomes avaliable.

I will have to look into that. I do know they ordered new mirrors for me so if it happens again I could go that route.

Re: 2011 750 Morimoto H1 Retrofit

With what you have done here, what was your cost for the kit and all of its necessities?

Here is the link to a kit http://www.theretrofitsource.com/pro...roducts_id=227 you only need one of everything instead of two. I was told about 150 for everything bulbs/ballasts/projector. You will need to call them at tell them what you want.

Of course there are random parts like wiring/taps/solder/connectors but the main part is about 150.00

If Suzuki still had the factory headlight this conversion would have been so much easier and less modifications. I wish they kept them as well.

The dealership ended up just getting the covers. Still have yet to put them on. Probably will today with epoxy
