HID Headlight

Postby NDAna » Thu Oct 08, 2009 1:08 pm

Here is the data sheet- Long read but Mike said I should post this up. Not really a vendor- Started selling these on the VTXOA board and response has been good. Light is AMAZING.

This is current info. They are at least 2.5x as bright as SilverStars and will last about 10x as long. I'm providing a 12 month replacement warranty from date of shipment. Guys that have them (WA VTX guys) are DELIGHTED and I'm impressed with mine. Just making a couple of bucks and passing some good deals on to the folks on the board. Hope I don't get busted by Hal but he does not sell these anyway. Similar kits in a fancy box are going for $160 + shipping and they are just 35W where these are 50W kits.
Kits are $85; unless you are using PayPal and then they are $90 because of the fees charged. They come complete. You will need to figure a mount for the ballast as all bikes are set up a little different. Many are going under the triple tree, mine is on a fork leg and there is a space under the neck covers on the VTX 1300 that holds the ballast perfectly.
PM me and I'll put another order together. These bulbs, because they are true HID (single element) will NOT work with H/L modulators!

4500K or 6000K H4 50W
kit include:
• 50W HID Bulbs;
• 50W HID Ballast;(100% waterproof Ballast)
• mounting brackets; most people just use zip ties.
• Zip ties;
• Hi/Lo relay
• Wiring Harness


Features
1. UV cut glass for headlight protection
2. Bulbs move forward and backward for 4 mm, and up and down for 1.0mm to produce hi/lo beam
3. Tested by Continuously switching 30000 times with light on
4 Over / low-current protection, Voltage output overload / low protection, Short circuit protection
5. Shock-resistant water-resistant dust-resistant
6. All the kits that are being sold have gone through rigorous testing at the manufacturers factory as follows:

• Six hours continuous working aging test.
• Connection circuit protection test.
• Short circuit protection test.
• Lack of voltage protection test.
• Over voltage protection test.
• Flash light concussion test.
• Shock resistance capability test.
• Cold/warm start up test.
• Polarity protection test
• Anti-jamming test


Here is a quote from IHOP

I had a chance to ride after dark tonight, man, that HID light is awesome!

Talk about light output, holy smokes, it puts out a very clear, slightly blue light.
The beam is adjusted just fine, I don't think it needs to be tweaked at all. High beam switch works fine too...

It takes a few seconds to get to full brightness after you turn the key on, but once its there you can see great


Hey Sam, JohnZ here from Chicago. Took a little longer than I had expected to finally install your HID light kit
on my X, but got around to doing it yesterday. All I can say is OMIGOD is that HID light bright!!!
You absolutely weren't kidding about this HID light that literally turned night into day.
I am overwhelmingly pleased with my purchase with the only regret is that I didn't purchase your HID kit sooner
....and in response to your statement, "I am definitely enjoying the light show!!!" Thanks again

I can say that I've installed one of these and have more installs lined up in the near future. I admit that I was skeptical at first, because I've seen a lot of these out there that are cheaply made and kinda crummy - these were not the case though. Good silicone shielded wiring on the high voltage lines, quality components, 50W instead of 35W output and the big difference is true high/low beam operation. Almost all cheap HID kits I've seen are only 35W output and are only on or off in operation. These HID kits actually have high/low beam function just like the stock headlight does.
For the price I have to agree that I think these are a good deal, and the light output is unbelievable compared to stock. If you want more light I would say this is the solution - much cheaper than a lightbar, much cleaner appearance than a lightbar, and really it's easier to install than a lightbar.

If anyone has questions about installation feel free to post them in the tech section and we'll help sort them out. ;)

Do these have to have a cool down period before the lamp will restrike like with a metal halide lamp? Say you stall at a red light and have to restart the bike does it come right back on?

Yea, it will heat up and come right back on in less than 1/2 a second. I've installed a bunch of these with Sam (Ndana). Pretty straight forward with only a few line splices. A very nice kit for the price :thumb:

Rory, If you're interested in checking these out - Conrad has one on his bike, I installed it. I think he lives kinda close to you (I thought I remembered him telling me that) and I know he loves to show that thing off. :elated:

I wanted to add this bit of info that NDana sent me when I inquired about the difference between the 4500K and 6000K HID kits:

http://www.jaguarforums.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4022
http://www.vvme.com/images/hidcolor.jpg
Bout the best I can do for color. 4500K is only slightly whiter and very slightly brighter. Both bulbs are great. Also since my bulbs are 50W they are slightly less blue than the photos.
Some guys didn't want the blue cast so brought in the 4500.


NDana, if you don't want me to keep these links here for any reason just tell me and I'll remove them, but I know that guys will probably be curious to know this. ;)

They are fine Mike
Just pulled them with Google photos. Good info for anyone looking into HID lamps from any seller. Glad you put them up. Thanks.

Just a link to another satisfied HID customer:

viewtopic.php?f=42&t=1063

I know it probably seems like I'm selling these the way I'm "pushing" them - but honestly I just think they're pretty great for the price. ;)

There just isn't a good smiley in here for being embarrassed... The closest I can find is this one that looks like he's getting a sunburn - :oops:

So I guess I'll just have to settle for this one... :kissit:

:nana: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Seriously though, no need to be "honored" by me - you sell a good light at an honest price. ;)

Glad you like it- Just helping out a brother. Now is a good time for you guys on the fence to install one of these "Mother of all Headlights" too. Have several in stock and ready to go.

Are you doing anything besides the H4 kits now? Just being nosey, I have had people asking about H3 kits and such, so I'm curious. :elated:

OOOPs sorry to take so long - nope - just H4 kits but am considering the H3s if I can find a small enough ballast. Hope you are well!
