Hey guys, so I just bought an Ebay Projector kit from this link https://www.ebay.com/itm/2x-2-5-Mot...e=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

I will be documenting the retrofit here with pics.

Hopefully hopefully the projector isn't as crappy as I think it will be, I plan to replace the projectors with Morimoto H1 7.0s in the future if they suck, but right now I'm working with my budget and I rather like the Devil Eye Halo Eye combo.

Let me know what you guys think, did I totally waste my money on junk, or does it have potential?

Any tips on how to mount these before I crack open the housing? Figure Ill just mount the ballasts on top of the housing in the nose cone.

Should look something like this when it is done. Should I paint the stock reflector housing flat black?

Thanks Ade, Is that the kit you're running in your bike? i was looking into it, but it is twice as much as mine. Those morimotos have a great rep

I use a pot of hot water from the tap. I never measured the temperature but my tap water is way too hot to put your bare hand in. About 5 minutes in that and they come apart fairly well.

So my phone/camera went out of commission last night which just so happened to be the night before the retrofit... I'm about halfway through right now, it's not a bad install at all. Very self explanatory. Will post pictures of the final product. I went ahead and painted the reflector plate black since it's no longer being used. I baked my housing for 7 minutes at 270F came apart pretty easily
