HID lamp Assembly Royal Enfield thunderbird with Relays
« on: October 09, 2012, 06:55:57 AM »
Hi,

I have recently installed HID kit in my RE thunderbird bike, the HID is working fine and as expected, however recently someone told me that I should have relay in my HID otherwise it will drain battery quickly. So far I am not finding any issue, its been few days and had a ride of an hour or so in night too . My battery is new from Aamron so may be I won't face any issue. But I am not sure, so to be on safe side, do I need relay in the circuit of HID ?
The HID has two boxes, I thought one is with relay, also my HID is AC as per written on its box. I must admit that I went for HID without any prior investigation so I am not sure if I the best stuff or proper stuff.

Any suggestion will be appreciated.

Hello,

Can you post pictures illustrating the original unit removal and how the new HID unit went into the headlamp assembly. That would be more informative. Just a thought. I think we can work on even small repairs and post it something like DIY procedure.

Well, may be you are right, for start ups, we should do it here. May be a new section here where we can post DIY guides :)
I will be inviting many RE enthusiasts very soon here :)

Now back to the topic:
Actually that was really tricky stuff, after mechanic did it, I came home and myself fixed things all from start and finally got it working right. Sad part is that it was really an "adjustment" so I can't dare to take out all stuff. But still I will what I can do :)

I think HID kit comes with relay included.
