In addition to replacing the existing low beam with a HID headlight, I might also recommend the PIAA 1100X/EzyMount system sold at www.cyclegadgets.comtexsus said:Looking into getting some extra lights for night riding on the GT. Any recomendations of brand and specifications as well as mounting pros and cons would be appreciated.
Do you have pictures of the Hellas? Which ones do you have and where did you get them?Bandera said:I have Piaa's down low for visibility during the day and to flood the front and side with light at night. The Hella's are up high, wired into the high beam switch to turn night into day. Not pretty, but one hell of a deer finder at night.
I have the Piaa 1100x with the ez brackets and my wife has the motolights. We much prefer the motolights. They are more rugged both the housing and the bulbs themselves. I prefer the lower mounting on the calipers as there is better separation when seen from the distance. The triangle pattern I think might get drivers' attention better. At night with low speed turns, the light turns with the steering.andy45320 said:http://secure.electronicart.com/www_motolight_com/viewItem.asp?idProduct=1071
I think they are very inconspicuous when off, but form a good UFO triangle when on.
We have not replaced any bulbs yet on my wife's motolights, but the bulbs are guaranteed for life! I replaced the bulbs are my Piaa 1100x after 18 months. How do you have the relay powered? I used the parking lamp in the headlight, so the PIAAs are off when the starter is engaged, I think that is important for max bulb life.Sumner said:Do the MOTO lights have a similar issue? Are they easier to switch?
