Ehh....



Nah just messing with yea Your best option for lighting would be a HID kit from Rigid, or you can take your chances with one of the eBay ones. They just replace the stock bulbs and get the best bang for the buck. If your still in need of more light you can also mount a 6 or 10 inch light bar on the bars.

Would be cool to see red angel eyes on your bike!
For bright lighting you may wanna ask rap_rider about the led bars he sells. He has a bunch of sizes and intensities. Would def light up your trail! You could tuck them in behind the front grab bar or something.

The second pic is with 1 HID on and the angel eye/ devil eye... You can't see the halo with the HID on... Headlights are lot brighter then stock but I'm still thinking of getting a led light bar if I start doing some more night riding.

I showed everyone a thread on how you can use some CCFL fan rings to make the eyes. It's cheap and hold up great as well.

I got the projectors from eBay I'll send the link in a minute when I find it. And this was my first time ever doing something like this and my first time using a dremel. That was all I needed was a dremel to cut some of the reflector so the projector would fit. I had to watch a few YouTube videos to get the wiring down but now I understand it well. If you want to try it and need help I can help you. I have some pics that I snapped while I was installing them too.
