So the stock FE390 headlight is dull..

$70 will fix that.

Get the 4300K bulb version. 4300 is the brightest.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/151100173994?item=151100173994&viewitem=&sspagename=ADME:X:RTQ:MOTORS:1123&vxp=mtr



3" hole saw in reverse direction... centered on the little circle on the middle of the lens. Then filed out enough to fit the projector


like a glove.




Low beam


high beam


Hooked up the halo to the running 12v wire on the bike.. whenever bike runs so does the halo


The brown wire on the left connector is the 12v acc power you want to tap into


All wired up, plug and play. The ballast +/- goes to the little running light power. The high beam wire goes to the high beam coil. The low beam wire is unused.



Projector HID on left, Squadron on the right. The Squadron has a very tight hotspot, and outside of that there is not a lot of light. The HID is very well filled in all around, with a nice hard cutoff above the horizon. Much much better for trail riding and not blinding traffic.




for comparison.. stock WR450F headlight.. and it is better than the KTM/Husaberg stocker!

Great job!

I'm looking at lighting options on my KTM 450XC.
Do you have a stock stator?
How long did it take to receive from China?

So you decided that you didn't like the Ebay HID conversion?
