Do you wish both headlights on your f would be on for both low and high beam? Well that was my Sunday project.

I bought a harness from Innovative Wiring and MZS Tuning H4 LED's on Amazon that accomplishes just that. Turn on the key & both headlights are on low beam; flick the switch and both are on high beam. Hardest part of the project was trimming the H4 adapters (see picture for comparison) and modifying dust covers.

Now all that is left is to fine tune the adjustment so as not to blind oncoming traffic (rough adjustment done). I'll take it out after dark tonight and see how much better they are.

So on the F one headlight is low beam and the other high beam? What? You don't enjoy all the conversations with well meaning folks telling you that you have a headlight out? I hated that on my GSX-R600.

Don't they have different reflectors though and doesn't this affect that?

Short answer is yes - however........
The MZS LED's can rotate, so I can direct the LED light within the headlight housing. Once I have the LED's correctly positioned, I will adjust the the headlight for up / down & left / right. I expect (hope) to have excellent light and not be blinding to oncoming traffic.

No one asks me that. I always ride on high beam. In the day, peoples eyes are adjusted to light enough that it doesn't bother anyone. At night, I'd rather be seen and piss someone off than not be seen.

Besides, I'm kinda OCD about symmetry so even seeing my own bike with only one light on pisses me off. :)

The Suzuki Global site 360 degree viewer for the F has both lights shining brightly on it as she rotates around.

I hardly ride at night (too many bugs in the summer and too cold in the winter...yeah, I'm a sissy) but this sounds like something I need to do. I too run with high beams during the day to keep visibility up and the OCD aggravation down. Let us know when you get it to perfection...

Took it out last night - great light on low beam; and no one flashed headlights at me. :)

High beam is definitely brighter than low beam, but not dramatically.
All in all - MUCH better than stock - and the bike looks a lot "cooler".
Perfection will have to come in the Spring - as at 35 degrees out this morning - WINTER IS COMING; and riding season is winding down.:(

GSXS-NH I live in Massachusetts about 30 minutes from the NH Border and do quite of bit of riding between Milford and Keene and North to Lake Sunapee. You not only live in a beautiful state but the roads are kept in superb condition. Lot of great routes in South Central NH. Don't know where Intervale is but must be North from where we ride. All the best and let's hope for a short winter!

Intervale is a suburb of North Conway - everyone knows where that is. :D
