Ok, I see how it's going to be. You guys have a party and I'm not invited?
it's a Xenon issue, since xenon has a startup time in which it does not illuminate fully. So when switching to high beam, there will be a short while of lesser illumination, moreso as xenon is bright, so when dark it is extra dark"Enabling headlight dip with main beam on an MTS1200"
I read this earlier, but didn't get what that meant; headlight dip?
both low and high beam on together, when switching on high beam."Low beam on while the High beam" USA MEANING.......
We bought it from John - it just seemed easier than making it ourselves and since he does it as favor to forum members it makes sense to support our own. I rode mine last night - works great and also gives a bit more visibility during the daytime.Did you guys ended up buying the wiring from the seller or making your own?
I remember there was a little whatever about the hidden diode a while ago.
Robb, I'm not going to ride mine with the lights on high during the day, just in case it does have a bit more amperage draw.also gives a bit more visibility during the daytime.
I am interested in purchasing the wiring also. Can you forward contact info?
I agree, it's only a little better, But I guess each little bit helps. If your not ponying up for killer bulbs or accessory lights, it might be good enough for some. Cheap and easy to try...just hold down the flash as you mention and everyone can decide for themselves right ther on thier own bike.having used the high beam at the same time as low ( by holding on button ) whilst it gave extra light , its not what I consider a huge improvement

I figure it won't be a big deal at night for the little time I'll be in the high position while riding at night. And I don't usually tour at night.
But why push it if it does draw a lot of juice? I know you're into as much safety as possible, if you really want to ride with high beams on all the time we sould probably take the bikes and get output and draw tested.
(in my best jersey accent) I know a guy.
Hi guys.For me with the stock configuration the high beams leave a dark spot in front of the bike.
This mod just lights that dark spot, that's all I expected it to do.
