Default Set of H.I.D.s for High and Low for $26!

Found these on E-Bay and installed them last week. Man they are awesome and the light is super bright! No flickering or any other nonsense.

You won't beat this price anywhere since these are on sale right now!

Ya can't beat $26 for a full set of plug and play kits for both High and low beam.

Check em out!

Gotta admit; that is a great price at $27 for both.

Makes me think the LED's will be available soon for a more affordable price. From what I understand though; the bulb housing needs to be replaced to use the LED's.

If a new led light is available at a lower price, I guarantee it won't be a Victory-branded product...

There are LED versions of drop in bulbs that are available. I had one on my VTX1800 and it had an H4 bulb in it.
It had three huge LEDs in a triangular sideways pattern and puts out very very good light. I just decided to go this way due to the price. You can find a high output LED but they are about $45-55 each. There are no ballasts either but they do have a small cooling fan in the back of the bulb. I think the one I has put out 2500-2800 lumens. Its a pretty bright sucker for sure.

Now the projector LED's put out better light and have it set up to give a better spread. These are complete replacements for the whole light minus the frame. These are very pricey.

Cool enjoy! I thought I'd have to share these because they are so inexpensive and such a great upgrade.

I'm in no way affiliated with the seller as I know some may suspect. I've shared this on a couple of Vic sites and links on FB. Have had a great response to most of the guys and couple negative from those who've spent big $$ on the same dang thing. LOL

Not here to piss anyone off but just share a hell of a deal with my fellow Victory brothers and sisters out there.

Are these compatible with the cross country, because it's telling me that it's only compatible with the vega?

Yep. The XC's use H11 bulbs that these replace.

At this price I had to get them as a backup hoping I won't need them.

So I got my Hikaru kit.




Install looks straight forward. Plug and play. Any tips?

Any interferance problems with the ballasts and FM radio?

Yeah, unplug everything and remove the rubber grommet. There will be a set of wires for each set of bulbs that look like they don't go anywhere and are extra. That set are the ones that plug into the red side of the ballasts and interface with the bikes wiring.
The other side of ballasts wires go to the bulbs.

So far no issues witj interference with the radio. The seller did send me a message of a part that they sell that will eliminate any of these issues should they come up. They plug inline.
