Headlight Xenon/HID, Who installs in Sydney??

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' started by Devilish, Aug 13, 2006.

  1. Hi people!

    I am new and have read a few threads on here about headlights and I have installed Phillips Diamond Vision at the moment and like the colour and appearance but actaul light coming out is crap. But the BMW's etc have great light output....

    I would like to install the Xenon or HID like BMW's etc have.

    Is there anywhere in Sydney who sells and installs this type of bulb and wiring for motorbikes??

    I have done searches and have found bulbs and wiring but not anyone that installs it.

    Any other info would be greatful :grin:


  2. Auto electricians would be only too happy to take your money for something like this I should think.

    But I don't know if there's any specialists around for this kind of thing.
  3. I have spoken to 3 auto electricians in my area and they all say they don't touch bikes... dunno why?

    Also last time I was at BikeBiz they said they won't even install an alarm cause they don't touch electrics...
  4. Wow.

    That's not what I'd expected to hear. A Bike friendly mechanic should be able to do it. In all honesty though it's probably not all that difficult to do yourself. It may seem a little daunting, but it can be done.
  5. Yeah, the light is crap but I think that it might just be the design.

    You can get some good globes but I don't know how the plastic will handle it.

    Have to find some 55 watt globes that have a plus 30 or 60%. Find out what type of globe you want and a good auto sparkie or spares shop will help you out.
