Ride On! Based on our most popular retrofit kit for cars and trucks, but idealized for a bike; the Morimoto Motorcycle Stage II kit comes with everything you'd need to convert a dual-headlight Motorcycle to a double low/high system using bi-xenon projectors. Nothing like dual low beams and dual high beams! Never before has the night ride been so entertaining (and safe!)
In the Details: What makes this setup different, you ask? we've considered what's important for retrofitting on a bike. The most compact slim ballasts from Morimoto with the lightest power draw. The smallest and bi-xenon projectors from Morimoto with the best light output that also install with ease. The most appropriate relay harness spaced just right for use on a motorcycle.
Bi-Xenon Projectors: Morimoto's most modern bi-xenon, the Mini H1 7.0, was an instant winner upon launch. Representing the first full overhaul of the Mini H1 since way back when the 1.0 came out, it's now one of the most advanced headlight projectors in the world today. Revised reflector optics paired with their curved cutoff shield produces one of the widest low beam patterns we've ever seen, and a high beam that will easily go the distance. Kuria Optic clear lenses maximize intensity throughout, and keep the cutoff line sharp, colorful, and attractive. New side-action solenoids are more than 3x stronger than the old and fussy vertically-sprung units. Result: Maximum light on the ground, zero glare to oncoming traffic.
Shrouds: Basically, they're the trim piece that adds the finishing touch to your new headlight retrofit. They cover the projector after it’s installed to restore the factory-finished look inside the housings. With so many different shapes, sizes, and designs available, we really recommend picking one that suits the geometry inside of your headlights, and also your personal preference on how they look. Check out all of the projector shroud options we offer and take your pick!
H1 HID Bulbs: Homegrown by Morimoto to out-perform any alternatives on the market when installed in projector-based headlights…and it shows. We admit the latest generation XB HID bulbs are pretty impressive when compared to other bulbs, and even older Morimoto bulbs. At the heart of the XB bulbs is their perfectly-aligned 100% Philips quartz glass capsule that houses high quality halide salts from German-supplier Messer. In our annual lux comparison test, they produced nearly the same luminosity (intensity) as the industry benchmark Osram CBI bulbs at 5500K. No, you're not seeing things here, but yes you will be seeing everything at night.
HID Ballasts: Morimoto’s XB ballasts are a functional work of art. While the industrial-edge design by California native Artur Saakyan looks great from the outside, they’re packed with too much modern tech on the inside to cover it all in on place. Their DSP 3.0 circuit maximizes reliability, input and output efficiency. Their ability to warm the bulbs up to full operating intensity quickly is matched by few. Aftermarket HID ballasts aren't all the same, and the XB’s make that clear in most every category in our opinion.
MotoCycle Relay Harness: The Morimoto H4 Dual-Output Motorcycle specific harness is the first and only high-quality harness on the market that's designed for retrofitting HID's into the headlights on motorcycles. It's been a staple in our product line for years as the right go-to for the job. Factory headlight outputs are really only designed to power a halogen light bulb and with the not-so-stable electrical systems on motorcycles - that could mean bad news for the longevity of your upgraded headlights without a harness.
Optional LED Halos: Though LED halos may not be for everybody, if you’re looking for the cleanest, most simple, most reliable setup, we highly recommend the Morimoto XSB Halos. Not only are they the brightest, most uniformly lit halos currently on the market, but they double as a switchback turn signal with your blinker circuit. The integrated controllers are extremely easy to setup with only three wires (white, amber, and ground) and allow you to run the white mode continuously until interrupted by the signal – at which point they will blink amber. Once the signal stops, the XSB ring will automatically switch back to its pure white mode.
Optional Housing Sealant: Protection is priceless! When you're putting together a set of high-end headlights, the last thing you want is moisture in 'em the first time it rains outside. RetroRubber is the most effective way to make sure the original seal is fully restored. For the small price, why anybody wouldn’t prevent their new headlights from fogging up is beyond us. It’ll be the best twelve bucks you’ve ever spent.

I bought a set of Mini H1 6.0's and the dual H4 motorcycle harness during the 4th of july sale without ballasts or bulbs since I thought I had some spares laying around. Turns out I didn't, so I emailed TRS a week after the sale was over to see if there was any chance they would give the sale price combined with the kit price. They hooked me up with both the prorated kit price and the 20% 4th of july discount, and let me apply the free shipping code I got with the first order - I was very happily surprised!
I installed the kit on my 2006 SV1000S over the course of a day and a half (most of that time was because I painted the halogen reflectors black and had to let it dry)
The harness is very well made and more than long enough - I actually need to go back and shorten the ballast/high beam outputs (I was in a hurry to ride so I just bundled up the excess and zip-tied it under the fairing.) The projectors installed easily, and although I did have to use the bulb holder instead of the nut to mount them they show no signs of moving even with v-twin vibration and rough roads.
Overall I am very happy with both the customer service and the product - this wasn't my first time purchasing from TRS and I'm sure it won't be my last.
