HID Headlight Intermittently Working/Acting Up
It's been a long time since I posted anything on the Versys Forum, but I still come on and lurk around a bit.
Well, my 08 Versys HID headlight has started acting up. Back around 2012.ish, I installed an HID headlight and up until recently it's worked flawlessly. Amazing light.
Here's what it's doing. I start the bike, HID light fires right up and begins it's warm up. After a few minutes, if I switch the high beam headlight bulb(stock) on or use the "Pass" trigger, the HID headlight shuts off. If I turn the bike off and start again, the HID headlight fires right up as normal.
Also, the HID headlight will go out during a ride, but as described above, if I turn the bike off and on again, the light fires up as normal.
Any thoughts? Is my ballast going out? Igniter going bad?
My stater, regulator and electrical system is stock and original.
Lastly, if I need to replace the HID system, any ideas on a good quality replacement? I can't remember where I bought the current system at. Anyone upgrade to LED?
