I very much doubt a distributor is going to do anything to correct a manufacturing defect, that only occurs on low setting.
Just went to Twisted Throttle and fully understand what is happening, the low beam is actually PWM, ( pulse width modulated) thus the flicker. Looking at the video, the only place you could correct this flicker is were the lights plug into the harness. The specs say "The D2s only draw 10 watts (0.83 amps at 12 volts DC) of power per lamp, thanks to Prime Drive Technology:"
Looking at this, the only way you could add filter capacitors would be to cut into the harness for each light , just after the modulator, you would need the correct polarity and I would use 2000 mFD @ 50 VDC for each light. If I was the manufacturer, I would house the capacitor in a sealed enclosure with a male and female socket to match the harness that they plug into, any other method would require cutting into the sealed harness, which wouldn't be something I would recommend for the average bike mechanic.
