  • HELP: HID on the pulsar 220 ?

    hey everyone ,

    i own a pulsar 220 , riding in the hills at night , more specifically , the nh22 is , well , a big pain in the a** ,
    by any chance , if 4 or 5 trucks moving in a line , from the opposite direction , all with their high beams blazing , well , you get the picture...

    during the server crash , i did manage to do some research , for the xenon headlamp to be fitted in LOW beam , the size of the bulb is H7(correct me if im wrong) , and these are manufactured here by bosch ,

    but other than that , i dont have a clue , here s hoping someone could shed a bit of light...

    a) the rating of the HID should be 35 w or 55 w , more specifically , as the 220 already has 55w stock halogen lamps

    b)the approximate cost involoved

    c)is there any condition of the warranty being void after this ??

    d) what are the major cons of replacing the halogen bulbs with the HID ??

    e) and lastly , some mech here in chandigarh , or delhi , who has already fitted it on a 220 ??

                H7 is the socket for the bulbs and raylux, philips and few other brands are available in the market


                a) the rating of the HID should be 35 w or 55 w , more specifically , as the 220 already has 55w stock halogen lamps

                Low beam is 35 W and high beam is 55 W

                b)the approximate cost involoved

                5k to 7k

                c)is there any condition of the warranty being void after this ??

                Yes your warranty is void if the PBK guys come to know about your HID's

                d) what are the major cons of replacing the halogen bulbs with the HID ??

                High beam and low beam take like 5 secs to charge fully so takes time to use the pass!!!!


                e) and lastly , some mech here in chandigarh , or delhi , who has already fitted it on a 220 ??

                Am from mumbai so dont know but guess others can help

                  ^^^^
                  Both the beams are 55W.
                  A pair of decent quality 35W H7 HID's will cost upto 7k
                  Warranty can still be claimed if u have good rappo with the pbk in your area.
                  Otherwise it will be void as it draws high startup current.
                  U cant use the pass light as HID takes time to get fully charged.
                  U dont need a mechanic for it. U can do it yourself at home.

                    The only con of installing a HID kit here in india is that the color temperature of the light emitted by almost all the HIDs available in india is 6000k or 8000k. It means its white or bluish respectively and this white light is totally useless when riding through fog or rain.

                          It's better to get 35W HIDs, and yes 220 has both 55W bulbs. Go for 4300K

                          b)the approximate cost involoved

                          For both the beams -
                          (1) Good Chinese ones- 4500-5500 INR
                          (2) Branded Like Raylux - 6500-9000 INR


                          c)is there any condition of the warranty being void after this ??

                          Yes, PBK may refuse warranty on certain Electrical parts, like BCU. But you can always remove the them to stock, as there's no modifications required on the bike, and then claim warranty.


                          d) what are the major cons of replacing the halogen bulbs with the HID ??

                          (1) You will not be able to use PASS light, as HIDs take about 2-6 seconds to come to 100% brightness.

                          (2) Cops may get you.


                          e) and lastly , some mech here in chandigarh , or delhi , who has already fitted it on a 220 ??

                          No, Idea, I do it Myself.

                            Now people are more aware of the CT and 4.3K and 5k are most common in accss shops. 6K is also good but only useful for good weathers, but on rain, makes u slow due to the poor visibility. Better stick to 5K as it offers yellow+white+light blue tint, very common to laxury cars like Skoda, CRV etc. and its not a cop magnet CT too.

                              S**t man! The road's as bright as daylight. Lot of questions now.
                              Are both beams HID? 55W or 35W?
                              Brand?
                              Any cons?
                              Asking so much questions cuz me and my pal is buying the 220 only for the sole reason that it has projectors and wanna fit HIDs.
                              Also wanna ask if fitting HIDs on a Fazer can help or not as it doesnt have projectors.
                              Looking forward to a prompt response.
                              Thanks
                              I have learnt my ABCs*.Have you??
