My R6 ate me
any one got pics of yellow hids? I belive there 3000K, how is the visability at night? I just wanna make sure I can see I have 6000k on my car and the visibility is amazing!!! And is yellow illegal? Thanks fellas
wrong, light output and Kelvin Color temperature are inversely proportional. Lower Kelvins have HIGHER light outputs. Hence why Le Mans series racing requires Yellow headlights.never seen 3000k on a bike. have to imagine it is less visable (unless you ride in the fog and rain) than 6000k since there is less useable light. samething with the real blue hids.
This is only partially true. Yes a lower kelvin number such as 4300k compared to 6000k will have a higher light output. But there is a threshold where the lower number begins to also have a lower light output. 4300k is right at where you get maximum light output. Anything higher or lower will give you less light. 3000k HID's are almost in the realm of standard halogen bulbs.wrong, light output and Kelvin Color temperature are inversely proportional.

partially true. its illegal without the use of projectors.3000K is NOT illegal.... the installation of aftermarket HID kits is illegal tho...
That being said, I've got the 3000K kit for both bulbs... it's FANTASTIC for night riding and bad-weather riding (rain, fog).
I had it on both R6's.... I'll always have them on my bikes.
