I hope this is still a 'thread-relevant'' post...
Can anyone tell me how an hi-beam H7 PIAA 120W bulb in my stock 2000 K1200RS headlight, along with a good dual-filament (55/120w?) PIAA bulb in there too would stack up against an HID system?
My 2000 K1200RS is also equipped with a set of PIAA driving lights. They are VERY powerful, and although I have no idea what the strength of the PIAA DL's bulbs actually are, they are mounted in such a way that they throw, via a switch built into the fairing next to the speedo, an amazing amount of light both forward AND out to the limits of my peripheral vision. Great lights. But not enough for the speeds I like to go where I live, since I often cover 90-10 miles between clients at night...
I live in *deeply* rural area, the NorCal coast above Stinson Beach... Deer are the biggest pests here almost every night; MUCH worse than in Vermont, where I've ridden for years... it's also FULL of tourist drivers, drunk local drivers, drunk tourist drivers, lost drunk drivers... you get the picture- almost as bad a brew of traffic on rural roads as having a new Casino park opening here (not gonna happen, just an example.
Has anyone tried both a HID solution, vs. PIAA driving lights and Hi-Power H7 120W, etc.) bulbs in an otherwise stock K12RS config?
