Are you getting true HID or just a colored halogen bulb?
According to the K5 Tech Manual that was posted before the bikes showed up.... lowbeam is a H7, High beam is a HB3? I never heard of that. Thats what it says. I dont plan on putting HIDs in the high beam, only the low beam.
Also according to the manual only one beam is on at a time. If your familar with HIDs they have a warm up time so when you switch to one form the other there will be 1 second where you'll have lil or no light. In my past experience 2 things are eliminated when using only low beam with HIDs. When you start the bike the warm up time on hids sucks alot of amps so starting the bike with the high beams on then switching to the lows helps take the load off during start up, this was really nice on my 01 R1. The 04 the lights never came on until the bike is started and all 4 lights were on when the high beam was on.
Second my HIDs were brighter than my highs so I never really needed my high beam.
Squid? its Poser thank you... in fact I'm the Mayor of Poserville so show some respect! LOLHey sqid, where are you getting yoru blk/gun metail gixxer from? I heard you can only get them in Europe.
Yup, just checked it right now. When low beams are on the top light and the 2 side running lights are illuminated, when you turn on hi beams, the bottom light turns on too.............all 4 are on.OH? I thought in the manual it said its one or the other... can you double check? If thats the case then I have to put in a switch so the HIDs dont start up until I get the bike running.
EDIT: according to the manual posted before the K5s showed up it says one bulb is illuminated on hi or low beam.
