Guys,

It occurs to ask whether the system maintains Low Beam / High beam as either:

both low beams on OR both high beams on

or

both low beam on OR (both low beam on AND both high beams on).

If the second option that would assume a higher output alternator.

Already anwered in another thread, but to clarify:

"both low beams on OR both high beams on" is correct  :169:

There is no beginning or end, only change.

Has 4bulb set up,2 dip 2 main.Very bright even in daylight.
Cost at the moment 224.0 +vat, includes bulbs, but not available at the moment.
Dealer has given me permission to take one apart later,when their test rides have slowed down,an have more in stock, to see if it will fit!!!!.

Hey! This price sounds acceptable to me!
(many here already spent mluch more to add some light)

My guess: if it bolts right on, you just have to split your existing H7, H9 and 5W5 in two (sourcing connectors shouldn't be that difficult since they're standard automotive parts) and you're good to go! At worst, three pairs of Posi-Taps should do the trick...
My only concern being that a single wire could be a bit flimsy to cope with twin halogens instead of one...
The world divides in two: those who own a Triumph and those who never tried one...

If it fits the wiring should not be a problem,i am not an electrician but it may need a relay to take on any load !!

The only check to perform is comparing the wire gauges between the 1050 and Sport (the main current feed and ground for H7(s) and H9(s)). If the Sport's isn't thicker, I believe you'd be good to go!

Probably a waste of time as our pathetic alternator may not be able to keep the battery topped up if both lights are on (just kidding but you can see where I am coming from).

I am also going to make enquiries to see if alternator is different

 :152: Hi all,been to local dealer again today,only to be told, the bike they were hoping to lend me is fully booked for next two weeks,and all bikes coming in are sold  :157:,(must be good as sold several)so i have taken another tack.
Asked parts department if he could do a comparison check on following items :-
1)Headstock Bracket to head light unit   :152: both the same :028:(so will mount ok)
2)Nose cone  :152: both the same  :028:(so will mount/fit the same aperture's etc )
3) connecting harness obviously different, but has a plug attached inboard,(have asked indytiger to take photo of his spare harness,for reference,until i can get into mine. :084: Parts dept did not have time to check this and give price, as phones/customer were a calling.
4) The two top inner cockpit panels are different part no's to ours, but look the same.Possibly a little mod/adaptor needed,as its possible the pin/gromet push connection may be different.(Minor problem)
5) Alternator is the same  :152:  :028:
6) Head light unit cost is 225.00 plus vat.( but was not clear as to weather it included light bulbs)
Any way i am almost convinced enough to go ahead and buy the unit,as they are available,but i will give it a few more days.
