    Default sort of failed experiment (HID in sprinter)

    As the topic shows, i tried to install an HID in my sprinter cuz i was just fed with the poor light output of stock lights. Got the ballast and bulb. And then i made the mistake of going to a local bike electrician who although does good jobs on Honda bikes, i think messed up the wiring of my bike.

    I got a dry 5.5AMP battery for the increased load. But so far i have been disappointed with the result as soon as the HID is on the other things stop working properly. Horn's sound is decreased. Indicator to bilkul i think urh gaye hain because of the JUGAARs that mechanic did with the wiring.

    What do you guys propose? Wapis stock everything? or should i give the battery some more time to charge fully and then test the HID. Btw, HID lasted 5 minutes on the stock 2.5AMP battery.

    Looking forward to your responses

    HID Kit (Rs 1800 - 3000)
    Bigger battery charger (Rs 500)
    Mazdoori to get it all fitted and your wiring ruined (Rs 250)
    Misc stuff including wires, connectors etc (Rs 200)
    My main question is that is their any exact same headlight unit that is made if glass instead of plastic available for Yamaha Junoon?

    As hids heat melts the plastic head light assey... So glass one is used. Glass headlight is available for 70 and 125 but Junoon headlight has its distinct design... Is a glass head light assey available for Junoon?

    Bro i have no knowledge about that. BTW my plastic headlight is doing just fine. It's made out of ABS plastic so it shouldn't melt according to what i've seen on the internet.

    UPDATE: Had the issues sorted out and everything's working perfectly, except the horn which needs a relay now. The lighting is obviously improved over standard incandescent bulb. Today i drove for 45 minutes straight without any issues. Will update the maximum use time on one drive when i get the chance..

    Important: It seems to a general consensus around here that HID kits will require you to fit a metal reflector and glass lens otherwise the plastic headlight assy will melt. Well that's simply not true, atleast for my bike's stock headlight. I felt it after the 45 minute drive and it was hot but i could touch it comfortably. So no, your headlight won't melt.

    I've tried glass lens + metal reflector (using stock bulb) but my stock headlight had a much better focus and throw.
