The spread didn't improve, but by increasing the brightness by 4x, the duller parts on the edges improved, and the reflected / scattered light increased, filling in more of the dark areas. I've also raised the low beam to the point that some on-coming drivers object, but that's more than compensated by the improvement in sight lines on tight mountain roads.Engenia, did you find this mod really improved the light spread or is everything just brighter? I got stuck on twisty country roads for an hour a few nights ago and could see practically nothing when cornering.....
Change both high & low beams. You won't regret it.As an immediate improvement Im going to modify the lighting circuit as you suggest on your website, but if you reckon a HID low beam is a vast improvement to that then what HID kit would you recommend?
Guess I forgotBTW, how did you get on with your high beam conversion in the end...iirc its not written up in the original article?
Probably do-able with some hobby gyro arrangement, but i've no idea where you would begin with a mod like thatThe solution is to make the low beam to rotate counter to the bike, keeping the beam cut-off level. This is not easy though. You need to motor-drive the blanking plate, and know where vertical is.
