Can anyone tell me the type of bulbs used for the headlight? Are they H-4 bulbs?
I found and downloaded an owner's manual and all it says is that they are halogen. I kind of figured that.
DDM Tuning has HID replacement units for H-4 bulbs.
BRP sells HIDs as an accesory for a nice chunk of change...
There's probably a good reason for that; besides them wanting to make lots of money!
HIDs (from what little I know!) ssem to require more power to really work well. I put a set in my ATV and had to add a big old ballast-type piece of hardware to make things work right.
My Missus had HIDs in her Chrysler 300 and they put out some of the best nighttime lighting I've ever seen**; but they were also almost $700 each!
"Electricals" is not my strongest collection of knowledge...
In fact I can barely keep straight which fingers to NOT put in a wall socket while drinking a quart of milk right out fo the refrigerator while the Missus isn't looking!
Spyder's use the H3 bulb. H4 has the high low beam. Can-am uses a deflector to lower the light. HID's actually use less voltage once they are up and running. Found this out when installed on the Hraley. There is a bit of modification to the factory case. Not a big deal, just pay close attention to what your doing and all goes well. I bought Xenon HID's for $95.00 and was done in about 2 hrs. Mainly taking it down to get to it is the time frame...Just make sure you purchase the 1 with the compact ballast, you'll the the room to "CRAMMM" it all in there..J/K. you have room if you arrange accordingly..
Good luck if you go this route. I was pleased with the final result..
