Look, the ST's are nice bikes - but the lighting is crap. I put HIDs on mine about 3 years ago after trying the usual bulb upgrades and such ......... received all the usual b.s. on this forum about current draw, additional relays/wiring/fusing issues, blinding on coming traffic, etc etc. Now I see we've escalated the argument to getting shot at. WTF? I have not had any electrical issues, never even been flashed by on-coming traffic ...... and guess what?..... I can see! More and more vehicles are on the roads with HIDs. If you want to see, just go get 'em.
