For a long time I had been searching on internet about xenon application with lens kit. After I red different articles and observed some applications, I believed myself and detached my headlamp
Firstly, let me write you down my references below
* SBN
* Gece uçuşu (night flight)
* Fazertürkiye(Fazer fun site of Turkey)
Before dismantling, I collected all equipments I need. My motorcycle rested a few days like this.
First products were lenses which I bought from Sahibinden.com. This web site is operating in Turkey and similar to eBay. They cost me about 25 USD if you wish to have a look at them
item is here



Low beam is shown below,


Pictures below show the position when bright lights is on (lights for far distance).As you can see, due to the curtain inside raised, headlamp emits light to higher level

Together with these lenses, there is only one type of xenon bulb which is D2S. Again I searched on internet and found a good deal for a 4300K kit on eBay then bought it.
Here it is
It was delivered in ten days after my payment and cost me around AU $ 83 delivery is included.


When I got everything I need, I dismantled the whole front section of my motorcycle and brought it to my house, then I separated lamp from other section. Here a sticky plastic joins lamp room and as I couldn’t find as big oven as I need, I opened lamp room by using hot air gun. During this time my hands were so dusty so I skipped taking picture.


After opening the lamp room, I unscrewed 3 screws which affix the lamp mirrors to the lamp room and separated mirrors. Behind the mirrors there are two little yoke, I separated them from the mirrors and fixed to a piece of metal plate as you can see below. In this way mirrors are replaced by lenses. After that I can adjust the angle of the lenses. At this point you must be careful with that; on the wall, the top line of the light must be parallel to the ground. Because after you finish everything if you notice that angle of the lens is not right it will be too late.

Finally, to prevent sides of lenses being seen from outside, I covered lenses with aluminium plate. Some of you may prefer lense surrounded by something dark but I wanted them to be bright and visible so left them grey. After everything was completed, I closed the lamp room by using hot air gun.

In this way, as left and right lights work not only low beam but also high beam, so I joined the cables of ballast and put in on the socket of short bulb. I also joined the cables of engines just above the lenses and put them on the socket of long bulb. As the assembly of ballast is identical to other xenon kits, there is no need to mention about it.

Well, as you know the bike is totaled. I separated my shoulder (different than a dislocation), which will take a good 6 months to fully heal. I'm about 90-95% right now though. I'm looking into another bike in the Spring, probably a Triumph Street Triple R:banana

Dumb question, but did your lights survive?

Nice job hergele

Nice job hergele. The cut off looks great on those lights.

Someday I might end up doing an HID install myself, but it's not on my short range plans. Heck, with two young kids and my wife and I both working, I'm lucky when I get the chance to even ride my FZ6.

Hey I am looking into doing this and have a couple questions for you... First off i have no idea on what the site is saying for the lens. I would like the same ones you got ifyou can help me out on purchasing them that would be GREAT... Also the bulbs you used they where both high and low correct?
