To follow up on the recent discussion of HID light conversion kits, I have a general question for those who have installed a Bi-Xenon HID H4 bulb on an R1100RT or RS.
After reading several forum discussions, I decided to purchase a kit from Xenon Depot (http://www.kbcarstuff.com/Motorcycle..._Kits_s/34.htm, Ontario). The quality of this set is excellent and the kit uses a Phillips bulb.
One complication I have discovered, is caused by the new bulb's base thickness. Below I've attached a picture of the bulb from their web site.
The polymer base is thicker than the usual metal H4 bulb base. As a result, the clamps do not lock down on the bulb base. While considering my options, I was trying to see if the clamp could be reversed and broke the plasic clip holding the hinge end of the clamp.
So, does anyone have experience, or tips, on how to secure this bulb? Now that I have broken off the clamp, any suggestions on how to fix/rig the base to hold the bulb, without having to replace the entire light housing?
Thanks for any
