SWMBO has an ER6F with twin headlamps only one of which is wired to work on dipped beam. She'd like to get a relay fitted to enable both lights to work on 'dip' for better visibility. The local dealers were unable to help and said it 'might be illegal'. However Triumph sell and fit relays for the 'Sprint' and other bikes called twin light drivers apparently.
Does anybody know whether we could use that on the Kawasaki or is there another product we could buy or fit?

Easier and more effective to HID them, should be easy to do.

Find out what size bulbs they are and speak to Les Wassall.:thumb
 
There is a question of legality of converting lights to twin units, but don't know what the problem is.

However - bikes with twin headlamp units with only one unit lit on dipped-beam do look a bit lop-sided (wonky).

Compare the Fireblade :eek with the R-1 :kissy2 and you'll see what I mean :eek:

Some bikes have terrific dipped lights without going to HID - namely the R-1 and the Triumph Daytona 600/650 (unbelievably bright lights).
