I also got sparkplugs in the mail today. Then installed. 40k on the original plugs. Pics of old plugs. Nothing exciting.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190215/e7df246f99b23d57c9c53d596e48fd4d.jpg

i'm boring and will just end up going is38 paired with the jb4 box (eventually). Nothing wrong with planning ahead and thinking on it.

Old old internet talk is that d2s tended to have higher output. Likely because they were cheap cheap d2s bulbs spliced onto h7 wires. Whether or not the logic still bears any weight is likely one of...

I'm of the opinion that the h7 setups (or any of the "d2h" setups) are likely acceptable quality but i am not a fan of a setup that only exists through the use online vendors. I prefer going to...

It's plenty. In my experience, there are few other setups that put out as much light as my current setup. the xb35 bulbs in the 4500k temp from morimoto are on par with what the OEMs like osram are...

Nice. I will say i highly recommend the morimoto xb35s paired with a decent 35w ballast. I've run the hylux 35w ballast for the past 2 years without no issue.

If you have h7 projectors, the d2s bulb won't be in the right place in the first place, so it's kind of a moot point. Basically if your bulb is in the projector, not causing a hot spot in the beam...

I highly recommend cross referencing motorcycle roads (http://www.motorcycleroads.com/) for a list of known routes out there. Great way to find new roads and get a sense of how you want to drive.

it's been a while since i've gone digging in the code for it, i seem to recall multiple options for xenon at some point or other. It's not going to reduce output too much.

The standard for d2s is the 35w bulb. If you run the 55w with the 35w d2s bulb, my understanding is it'll run the bulb hotter, shortening lifespan of the bulb (around half?), and possibly experience...
