YAMAHA R1 HID HEAD LIGHT CONVERSION KIT INFORMATION
QUESTION: WHAT IS OUR SPORTBIKE LIGHTS HID KITS?
ANSWER: An HID (High Intensity Discharge) refers to lighting technology that relies on an electrical charge to ignite xenon gas contained in a sealed bulb area. A normal halogen bulb uses a filament which burns out in as little as normally 250 hours. Our Yamaha R1 HID bulbs are gas filled capsules that are rated for a lifespan of almost 4000 hours. Our HID bulbs also shine alot brighter due to this great technology.
QUESTION: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE IN HALOGEN VERSUS HID KITS
ANSWER: Unlike halogen bulbs, HID's emit a type of light that which closely appears like natural daylight and is therefore is easier on the human eyesight. In fact, HID lights are currently used in most sports arenas, stadiums, and train stations around the world. Don't allow yourself to be fooled by lower end Xenon replica bulbs, that are sold at area retail stores. These Xenon style bulbs are not even close to the intensity, purity, and efficiency of high intensity discharge HID bulbs. Remember that HID bulbs higher than 8000 Kelvin rating are not D.O.T. approved.
QUESTION: WHAT IS THE HID COLOR TEMPERATURE DIFFERENCES?
ANSWER: Color temperature is most often used to describe the hue of a light source. This has been based on experiments conducted by physicist William Kelvin. Mr Kelvin, heated carbon which gave off different colored light as it grew hotter.
QUESTION: WHAT IS THE MEANING OF HID?
ANSWER: HID (High Intensity Discharge) lights are high-powered headlamps with warm and cool colors. If your HID bulbs are placed in the wrong headlamps there will be glare in some parts of the beam pattern and insufficient light in others, making them dangerous and possibly illegal.

6,000 Kelvin is almost pure white, but has a very faint tint of blue. HID lamps with this rating have a very high performance, and give off the most visable light. This color is very popular as an aftermarket option.
HID lamps with an 8,000 Kelvin rating give off a pale blue light. As a default this is the kelvin rating that most of the luxary vehicles will use (BMW, Audi, Lexus etc). This is the more popular choice to allow the most light output with more blue tones than the 6000 Kelvin bulbs.
HID bulbs with a 10,000 Kelvin rating give off a deep blue light. The brightness, and the performance of the lamp as a light source is significantly lower than a 6000 Kelvin lamp.
At 12,000 Kelvin, an HID lamp gives out a violet light. Visibility is significantly poorer than with other colors. Such colors are strongly recommended to only be used with show bikes and not for driving purposes.
