    Many thanks Les,

    Kit arrived quickly, bike already prepped, and it really was as close to "plug 'n' play" as you could get. Finished the install up with one of those LED sidelight bulbs.

    Regarding ballasts, the HID50 ballasts will fit nicely one each side in the space between the beak and the edge of the oil cooler. It obviously complicates things a bit taking the beak off, but I thought that gap would allow some cooling airflow without too much muck/sh*t/water getting in there.

    Just got to wait for some darker Scottish mornings/nights on my trip to/from work to see the improvement.

    With help from Les, I've gone from this...



    To this...





    Haven't had a good chance to try them out properly as I've been virtually housebound for the last 2 weeks, but the trip to set them up on a dark unlit road was enough to convince me that it's been money well spent.
    Thanks to Les for his help in answering my queries during the fitting.

    Where did you hide/place all these balasts?

    Les supplies the brackets to mount the ballasts, 4 under the beak and 2 inside the panels which join the cover for the fuel tank. They are well out of the way and can only be seen if you look for them.

    Photo of the ballast mounted to the side bracket...



    The igniter boxes are mounted to wherever I could find space for them...




    It was not too difficult to fit everything, just time consuming.

    Great job, looks neat and well placed. Does the side brackets also fit the 50watt balasts?

    I'm pretty sure that it would take a 50 watt ballast, there was more than enough room for the 35 watt.

    Bad news, no one likes to hear about bikers being killed. Got my lights done by Les, and use them every day. You need to stand out and if more lights help, the more the better.

    Got mine

    Les.... I got mine (via Thunder).

    Sorry for changing my mind and asking for 50s after receiving 35s.... but the transformation on the 1150 is amazing.
