Not enough alternator output to burn two headlights at once. Well, you could use two 35watt bulbs on a late model bike and convert all the rest of the lights to LED to make up the difference, or you could use two HID coversions and convert all the rest of the lights to LED to make up the difference.Has anyone done the dominator 2 headlights side by side I'm thinkin about going in that direction?
This is a hot setup right here, I like the way this looks, AND I have access to an old CL175 headlamp, so this might be something I'll do.
Regarding THIS setup, does the headlamp shake or rattle when you hit bumps, or is it mounted pretty solid? I'd imagine those ears would flex a little bit??
No. It's rock solid. Notice that the lower part of the "ears" are resting on top of the lower triple. You can't see it, but I lined the inside of the part that clamps to the tubes with rubber.
The Goldwing housing is plastic. If I'm not mistaken the CCL's used a steel housing, but if not you can take a soldering iron to the inside retaining nuts on the plastic housing and push a little of the plastic around them. That way you don't have to remove the headlight guts to tighten them.
IIRC correctly the CL/CB housing is only a 5" reflector. I doubt the output would be much improvement, but at least you'd get the "look" you're after, and not pay the outrageous price that the so-called JDM folks are charging for a headlight that used to cost 10 bucks and was on the shelves by the dozens in every crappy chopper shop in the UU.S. 15 years ago.
