Default Daytona 675 Headlights morimoto retrofit

Hi, all im new to this forum but not to retrofitting. I been building headlights for over 3 years now. I just picked up a nice daytona 675 black/gold. Before I even put 20 miles on it, i ripped the headlights apart and went to work. Original lights were one low beam and one high beam projector with silver bezel. 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 :)

That's really bright, I like it. So do you have high beams and low beams on both lights?

I was part of another thread and it seemed no one could figure out the right way to do this. So you change both projectors (and they match now I assume) and you just crossed the wires for low beam and high beam to the other sides? Or did it get more complicated than that?

About how much did you spend on this project?

Where did you get your harness from and how much did it cost? I tried to make both mine run lo beams when i had mine apart but eventually got frustrated and gave up. I would LOVE to finally finish the project. We need more info on how you did the 2 lows 2 highs. Looks awesome though

I changed out both projectors for 2 bi xenon projectors. I made a harness to run each ballast. Combined the hi beam wires and made a harness. I do this as a business on other forums and eBay so I had all the parts.

No I'm not I'm a vendor on another forum. I just got this bike so maybe in time I'll become a vender here too.

I made the harness. You need to tare the lights apart and replace the projectors with bi xenon projectors like I did and And then install and hid kit.
