Hey BigBob,

That link you posted is dead... Is this the same kit as what you bought? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/55W-HID-Motorcycle-Bike-H4-Bi-Xenon-Slim-Kit-4300K-Honda-Suzuki-Harley-Davidson-/181217527054?hash=item2a3168050e

And has anybody tried LED yet? any pros or cons you can think of? Looks like it would be a slightly simpler install... I'm looking at this one. http://www.ebay.ca/itm/1x-H4-HB2-9003-Hi-Lo-6000K-White-40W-4000LM-Motorcycle-Bike-CREE-LED-Headlight/262149888055?_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20141121090453%26meid%3Dc11b73709784440dba91e413479919d0%26pid%3D100033%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D4%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D262149888055

And one last question... Both of these options have an extended 'base' on them... How close do your lights come to hitting that support bar behind the headlamp enclosure?

I just changed my headlights to twin round units.
I bought some led bulbs which although very bright, give a poor beam pattern in small round reflectors. Tried them in the standard headlamp and they where good. I am not sure that the fan type bulb will fit very easy between the headlamp and headstock though. The bulbs I bought have cooling ribbons which allow for tighter fitments.

This one is cheaper and has less gubbins and you don`t have to connect to the battery http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/55W-H4-H-L-HI ... 5d4345458a

With a price like that and what looks like a guaranteed fit I can't say no!
Lets see how long it lasts.
If it konks out quick then I'll try the LED route. Thanks for the tips both of you.
