I assume this is a mod?  Care to share how it was done?

Nice work, that's how it should be from the factory,  :028:
Titty bars aren't bad if you enjoy being sexually aroused without an outlet. Oh, and they're also convenient if you're in the mood for paying double the normal price for a drink. If I'm in the mood to be treated poorly while giving up large amounts of cash, I visit a BMW dealership

I like my one eyed Mk 1!!! :9: :9:
Don't much care for the half blind Mk 2 so this mod does make an improvement!  :002:

 :123A: agreed. Our V1 has one and it works. My gripe is purely with twin lights, of which one doesn't work. Bloody silly euro stuff!

Looks like a good mod.  How easy is it for a novice to install?   How does this impact riding at night?  Do you get folks flashing you thinking you have your high-beams on?  (not sure how the 40 percent power actually works when riding at night..)

Question -- what about just running high-beams during the day?

When riding at night if you switch to full beam the full beam light goes from 40% to 100% so normal brightness  :002:
