HID angel...angle?

Some questions about HID lighting for the Versys. I've been researching HID conversion kits from other threads on here, but haven't really found specific answers to my questions. I've found some decent sites to order from and probably won't install a high beam xenon bulb (takes too long to engage, given the limited amount of night driving I do) and a projector customized for xenon bulbs seems to make sense, to the driver and the oncoming traffic.

Is there a xenon angel eye bulb for the Versys' top bulb? Ya know, the one that comes on when the ignition position is on, but not the engine; the one I wish I had when I had my KLR. If so, would it be in the same position as the low beam bulb, or would it replace that little bulb? Would both require their own conversion boards??

Garage
The city light is an ordinary T10 bulb. I replaced mine with an 5 LED T10 off ebay. Only thing is it is a little longer than the OEM and of a night time can glare off the windscreen. I don't do much night riding so it doesn't bother me but it is something to be aware of. If you were to use a single LED T10 you would not have the same problem as they are around the same length. I do not know if there is a "xenon angel eye bulb" for a T10

OEM





5 LED

Thanks Eddie, just trying to help....
I'm amazed every time when I see the cutoff from the projectors (even daylight...)
