What do you guys think of this projector?

I have seen many talk about how just adding a HID light kit to the stock headlight assembly may cause unwanted glare. I found this projector kit and it looks like you can replace your stock light with this projector. I have the CB1000R so I am also considering replacing the lower LED array with one of these projectors.

Here is the link: motorcycle hid projector KT-MT2

So....your going to heat off your stock lamp glass and install this? For a cb1kr that might look ok but in a 919 I think it would look like a big tit hanging out

I may not have a lot to say but it doesn't mean I don't listen.

Well I'm looking into it. Depends how hard it is to remove the headlight housing as it seems to be intergrated with the dash on the CB1KR. So far I have seen pretty good reviews on these projectors. If I do it I also plan to blackout the reflective housing with satin black spray paint.

So, do you seperate the 919 light housing and put this in place of the original bulb?

From what I have seen is is basically as easy as that. I have watched some videos of it on yourtube for car headlights so I assume a motorcycle would be the same. Another cool thing would be to black out the reflector area with black paint so all you can really see is the projector.

He has a cb1kr though, how well the dash removal goes will be the ticket to ride, or ticket to buy again.

That's the part I'm concerned with. I am hoping the dash and the headlight housing are separable. I need to get my hands on a shop manual to see.
