HID light conversions

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried the HID kits, looking at some Kensun for forty bucks. What do I need to know (everything) about a conversion. I want to do a hi/lo kit for headlights and another for up top

did it I got my kits off eBay xentex I believe it was 35$ a kit to convert two lights the bulbs are H3 mine are 35 watt you may think that's not bright but IT IS. I did it to all my light bar lights and I switched that to LED but took the HID lights and they are now my driving lights big big difference and yes I cut the wires to hide the balest from water and used the factory harness

I got confused by the 4wire connector and what I needed to have hi/lo on the headlight conversion, they all look different on ebay or amazon

I have never owned a HID light, YET, but I have gone a little nuts with LED lights! That said, one comparison I did with another persons HIDs showed that the HID is more spot lite than the LED, it reaches out further, but has a narrower beam, My LEDs put out lots of light and I can see almost every thing with in a certain distance, both side of the road, the tops of trees and especially what's right in front of me.

I'm not saying one's better than the other, that depends on what you want! It's just something to consider. If I find one of my videos, I'll post a link for it.

I agree with Kinarfi. If your going fast at night, you want the light to reach out. If your navigating thru tight stuff the LEDs cover the area better because they spread the light to the sides more. My HID were really too bright for close stuff and leave you a little blinded especially when you went thru a dip and got the light reflected back from the opposing up slope in front. If you put Kinarfi's lights with mine and switched back and forth, you would have it all.

      Maybe I'm just ignorant, but maybe someone here can help. Is there a switch somewhere to dim the headlights? I certainly can't find it.
       
      Thanks in advance!

      I recently put high output LED lights in my Cub cadet 750 crew. It took some JB quick weld, drink tube, and screwing up some but is working! Opt 7 H4 bulbs are about three times brighter than the cheap China motorcycle bulbs!
       
      I will post some pictures soon!
       
      Does anyone else have battery issues? I am going to try fitting a Optima marine battery in mine. A real alternator would be a better fix. Anyone try solar to top batteries? When I plow snow the stock battery is fried quick!

      I have a 2014 Mule 4010 and would like to change the headlight Bulbs but can not get to them. Owners manual says to remove cup holders to get access. How do you get the cup holders out? Without breaking them??

      Streamline Brakes has now officially released our RZR 1000 front and rear oversize brake kits.
      We have had several Pro teams racing in Lucas Oil Off Road , WORCS, SCORE and Best In The Desert series complaining on how the stock brakes are just not adequate for the RZR 1000 and how they are having stock brakes over heat and fail. To the everyday rider or weekend warrior when adding oversize tires, larger wheels full cage with doors and all the other added bolts on that we all are doing it does add weight and rolling mass to the SXS. What that is doing is making the stock brakes work at a capacity of more than what they originally designed for. What we have done was made a larger front rotor kit for the RZR 1000 and not only does it restore the brakes to what the stock brakes can do but when adding the rear oversize kit with the front kit in can increase the braking ability by up to 30% over the stock RZR 1000 brakes.
