Angel Eyes

Anyone know if these things are a good investment. http://www.xdcycle.com/store/catalog...DC-p-1237.html

I like how they look and I'm looking to make a bunch of cosmetic changes to my bike.

thoughts ...opinions?

They do look cool in person especially at dusk.

they get shitty quick...best bet is to find a complete set of used headlights and cannibalize those (you need to bake them to get them apart)

if one burns out (if these are the ccfl ones) then ur fucked.

if it wont make my bike faster i personally wont bother with it but i only like angel eyes in bmws....my opinion though

I feel ya on the performance aspeact. but too many poeple recognise the bike from its previous owner. and I was thinking of adding some "flare" ( 10 points to the one who gets the movie reference). a new paint job is in order , but it with be on a new set of fairings. I thought some extra lighting might add to it, but being in the headlight shroud gave me some worry.

thanks for the info guys and if some want to give me some other ideas or more input on this.

PWEEZE feel free!!!

I was going to get those, but instead for $60 i ordered a dual h9/h11 10k hid kit off ebay. Pretty good deal I think.

10k?

Fail.

If you can see anything at night after installing it let me know I'd be curious to hear.

Yaya I know, thought I try it out though, very simple install and uninstall if necessary. If I don't like em I could just sell em.

I'm pretty sure you want the word "flair".. a flare is something you set off to get rescued.

And of course the movie was Office Space.
