Converting H4 to fit H7 Projector Lights
« on: 29 November, 2016, 10:20:35 PM »
Just read furysamurai72's thread about his 'upside down headlights':

http://www.tiger1050.com/index.php/topic,36362.0.html

It's had the stock globes changed to H4, a fairly common and cheap conversion to H7 and H9 projector lights popular for both cars and bikes.

Here's the template if anyone's interested.

I did dual H4's years ago, it's in the How To's I think.  Be careful!  I think my clear lens was starting to melt from these bulbs as a pimple was forming inside the lens....

I used the aux circuit to power the second lighting circuit but really you are not adding any more load than what would be present with dip and high beams on.  They are just on all the time, in effect, but it is either 2 x low or 2 x high and the small increase in wattage is not a big deal.

Very interesting! I'll have to open up the headlight assembly and check on this. I won't be working at all from the 23rd until the 2nd, I should be able to find some time to take a look inside the panels!

HA! I had that and thought that was a manufacturing defect in the lens!
