This is exactly what I want to do to my headlights. I was actually looking at the Morimoto's on theretrifitsource before finding this post.
CMC, are you using the Mini H1 5.0's? If so I may have to purchase a bracket set from you. Just gotta experiment and wire things myself...

Just snagged the brackets and spacer from islandboyeee. Motorcycle dual HID kit w/ 55w ballasts and H1 5k bulbs from DDMtuning, and the H1 projector kit (mini gatling gun) from retrofitsource.

There is some custom wiring I'm looking forward to doing, and a few extra bits I'll have to figure out with hardware and this thread as a guide.

I'll get pics up as soon as I have things together to document my version of the mod.

"Need" is not a word to be associated with owning a motorcycle.

"Need" is a word to describe the desire to ride.

Bi-Xeon is that its a high low projector and the Xeon means a Xeon gas filled bulb.

Yea which is why I can't bare myself modding my headlights with HIDs until I have all the necessary parts, which, unfortunately, drives the price up if you want to be legit.

Idk, I have ddm tuning HID kit in my buick, yeah it has stupid reflector headlights. Are they blinding sure maybe. But the light output is a lot better compared to the halogen bulbs in there before. Farther, brighter...all that shyt that makes it sound like sylvania commercial. But really after it I cant stand driving a car with halogen bulbs anymore cuz they are so dull it feels like I cant see right

So i decided to tare the lights apart and paint everything metalic gold and add morimoto mini projectors so now i will have 2 low beam and 2 high beam. The harness was custom made. I was going to use morimoto ballasts but they were to thick for where i wanted to put them so i used some cheap ass ebay ballasts.

Brackets




painting


test fitting



ballast placement


fitting everything for a nice clean look




Results






Output, i feel really good about the output considering i made the brackets 'eyeballing' and it came out perfect :)


Those are very nice pics so will try them for sure
