Cool Vision HID lighting

Has anyone installed HID lighting on their Vision. I was wondering if it was necessary or worth it. I haven't been disappointed with the dual head lights on the Vision but am always interested in upgrades if they are worth it. I'm also thinking about replacing the center light. Any input would be apreciated.

Yes!!! And totally worth the $150 bucks. Talk to Crossroads.

I already had the Victory HID in the center from the dealership. With the OEM bulbs I think it made a nice difference. I don't like the single HID in color WITH to the yellowish OEM hi/low, and I have a single HID in my VTX (and love it), so I put in Crossroads VICTORYHID bulbs. Now, the center OEM HID light doesn't make that much difference.

He sells all 3. If I had it to do over again, I'd save the high cost of the Victory option HID and just go with Crossroad's all around. That would save you $400+

Thanks for the info. I'm still debating doing the center light. I routinely ride at night on a road with a lot of deer. Anything to give me a little more visibility. It'll probably have to wait until after Christmas though if you know what I mean.

Here is Crossroads web site and I do believe if you tell him your a member he gives you something off. If you take the front end a part and you will do every thing.

I have them on my Vision. I bought my kit from DDMTuning in the 35 watt 6000k color. If you are trying to match the center HID, you will have to get the kit in the 4300k color. This is low beam. They are extremely bright on high beam. I worried at first about the heat they produce, but 1 year later and so far no problems yet. 511.jpg

Mike, I have an '08 with the HID OEM center light. Want to convert over the other 2 bulbs to HID as well. Do you remember what color/temeprature bulbs you bought, and do they look the same as the OEM, or yellower or bluer?
I'd like to keep a bit of a difference but don't want to go too bluish (ie too high in deg K temp.)
Thanks in advance.

Got it. I see there are 3 "colors" or temperature ratings from him. so I can pick from how they are described as being yellow (like halogen OEM, or whilte like center light, or bluish tinge.
As I don't really want a "blue" appearaince I'll likely go Pure White.

Yes, it boils down to preference. The good news is, you won't hate it no matter which color temperature you end up choosing.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
