One HID lamp, mounted on the RIGHT side.
Due to the excellent lumen output of Xenon bulbs, the light emitted reaches farther and the light beam to illuminate the road is even greater (see
In addition, the light produced more closely approximates the color temperature of natural daylight. This makes for better visibility and noticeably less eye strain in night driving conditions.
Includes all mounting brackets and hardware. The ballast mounts inside the fairing on the right side with a custom built bracket provided in the kit.
Includes all components necessary to work with the R1200GS "CANBUS" system. This light is controlled by a relay that comes on automatically whenever the BMW hi-beam is used. There is no switch included, but a switch can be added by the user. Please see the general wiring diagram and the installation tip.
The HID ballast on all of our HID xenon lights is specially reinforced by TOURATECH for use on a motorcycle to ensure that your HID lighting system (which includes the ballast that fires the bulb at 20,000 volts) will stand up to the rigors of use on a long-distance enduro touring motorcycle.
The HID ballast may not fit if a BMW accessory outlet has been installed along the left side of the cockpit fairing. For an accessory plug please consider using our <a href=http://www.touratech-usa.com/shop/search.lasso?SearchTerm=044-0560>044-0560 cockpit cover</a>.

The high-efficiency HID lamp takes about 90Watts to start, then after a few seconds, drops to a sustained 60W draw, while producing more light than 150 watts of Halogen lighting. Furthermore, the color temperature is more like daylight, so driving at night is more comfortable.
IMPORTANT TECHNICAL NOTE:
Mounting position of the ballast of this item conflicts with the right side tank of 044-0950
