The first time I found that one out, was when I took a brand new bike back to the dealership.JBaz said:one's low beam, the other is high beam... made sense with the engineers... I've been pulled over twice by cops telling me I have a broken headlight.
Yeah, but its a touch more complicated. You'll have to do some rewiring (as each bulb now needs 3 wires) and the hardest part will be to get all of them aimed correctly. I believe there are kits out there that will do the job for you.Blue Jays said:Hi Vash-
So you're saying a rider could have two low-beams and two high-beams (if they wish) by replacing the stock single-filament bulbs with dual-filament bulbs? I'm just asking because this will apply to my "dreambike" someday!

I have heard that too but I've heard from a good source that it is like that for European reasons for the roads such as the autobahn. It allows you to flash a light for passing. The new GSXRs just put a passing switch on there controls.xtreme1k said:This is just a rumor I heard and I'm not sure I believe it. I heard they went to one headlight because a bike with two beams looks like a car that is far away, but in reality it's a bike that's very close. Does that make sense? If you think about it, it does. If you see two lights coming at you at night you would think it's a car, but the lights on a bike are so close together, they look like one light anyway from far away.
I don't really know. Thats why I don't really believe that explanation. I think I might have even read that in one of the "funny books" like cycle world or motorcyclist!
The RCs actually do light up one side quite a bit more.SkinnyJ said:OMG if i had a fucking dollar for everytime someone tried to be the good citizen and tell me i had a light out id be rich. its the same thing on the f4i's one for low and the other for high beam.
people are always either asking me y i have a light out (first of all if it was out y would you ask me y i have it out obviously i havent gotten around to fixing or didnt know) or y only one lights up and that thats ghey.
O another thing people try to argue that since only one lights up on the side that how can i see or it must be hard to see etc. "so is like that side lit up more?" and i keep trying to explain that its pointed to the center and i can see quite well..... it goes on and on. sigh
Only leave the brights on during the day.RCjohn said:And to those that just leave your brights on, damn if I were a cager and got the opportunity at night... I would smack the shit out of you. Those damn Honda brights are damn bright. Can't imagine driving into those at night.
