    What brand and part number? Did you buy from a chain auto parts place?
    You only need a 200cc bike to circle the planet, anything larger is just wheel spin.

    Haven't been out to the storage garage. Too much snow.

    Same here... I have four of 'em I got from ProCycle.. one for my DR650, two in my V-Strom and I kept the one from my KLX when I sold it and put it in the TW. In the near future I'll be moving the little POS Mondo Motos aux LED lights off of my V-Strom and onto the TW, since they should put out enough light for it (not nearly enough for the V-Strom) and put something better on the V-Strom... not sure what yet, thinking about those dual-mode Denalis from Twisted Throttle. When I can find the $$ for them that is; the suckers aren't cheap. :/

    So, the article at ProCycle is talking about HID bulbs, with auxiliary LED lights. Is that what you are using, or is your actual headlight an LED?

    HID has become "old" technology. I used to run HIDs in my bikes, til the LED's came out. Now there's no more ballast boxes to have to find places to stash. Power consumption is similar between the two. And LEDs don't take a few seconds to "warm up" like HIDs, which means they can be high and low beam, whereas HIDs are always low beam only.
