Last night, I got motivated and finished the install. I managed to squeeze the ballast and wiring under the right front of the tank, zip tied it securly to a bracket which holds the carbon canister in place. No interference with the fork, good to go. Installing the bulb, however, was a bit more difficult. Drilling the 1" hole in the back of the bucket was bad enough, only to discover that the back of the HID bulb extends about 1/2" more then the standard H11 bulb, and hit the back of the bucket when trying to seat the lens. I ended up drilling another hole, to allow the back of the bulb to fit in the hole, and the lens to mount correctly. Looks like it only needed about a quarter of an inch clearance, but without the hole, it wasn't there... So now I am waiting for some black RV roof repair tape, which I will cut to a nice circle, put a piece of something to cover the adhesive in the center of the patch (where the actual hole is) and seal up the hole watertight. Anyway, below is a bad photo of the ballast. The silver on the right is the right fork tube.
Just to say, the HID low beam is fantastic. No Can-bus error, sharp, clean throw. Wicked bright. Great kit from 1offmotorsport, I must add.
Now to find a can-bus compatible LED W5W bulb for the running light The incandescent bulb looks a little odd next to the HID.
