Two of the guys I ride with have Honda XR 650s and they "converted" their stock headlights over to a HID kit about a year ago. I really don't know sh!t about electrical stuff, but these guys said that it was a real easy job and the kit (for both bikes - H4 bulb I believe) was only about $150.

Can we do something similar to replace the weak ass light that comes on the 625 SMC?

Thanks,

(putting an '08 EXC light & mask on, speedos, but no HID)


So,back to my original question... Is there a simple HID replacement for the stock bulb in a 625 SMC? If anyone has info on this, please post some details:
- Vendors.
- Price.
- Installation.
- Reliability.


Thank you.

I've seen them on eBay too... but there are a LOT of them to choose from. Which one exactly are you looking at?

Has anyone else does this?
