The other thing is, will the charging system on the SG be able to handle the load of both sets of lights???

The charging system will not give you any trouble.

I went to a SilverStar bulb in my EG, and it made the driving lights and the crash bar mounted lights useless.

The silverstar throws so much bright white light the others when they are on just dillute it with yellow crap.

20 bucks..... lots cheaper than the 100+ the previous owner droped on the crash bar mounted ones

I run the HID and passing lamps on my 05 Ultra. Change the passing lamps to 68208-98A with Halogen. The replaced the Halogen with PIAA 55W Ion Crystals. The result is like a parking lot only better. Not quite a football field because the PIAA's are yellow (my choice). They provide plenty of light while reducing the glare fro road signs. Folks at work say they can see me coming form miles away. On coming trffic flash their hi beams and I respond by flashing mine.

I have a friend that did the same on his RG except he has the Silverstars.

Lamps and upgraded bulbs can be had for about $100 total. No problem with the wiring.

Thanks for the tips everyone. Sounds like I need to order a set of lamps for them that have the inside bulb that can be changed. (smack my-self in the back of the head for not getting those first)

I had looked at these but decided they were too much. Lately I have seen quite a few bikes in the area with low mounted lights , like the caliper mounts, and have noticed that they are really visible in the daytime. Much more than those with headlights & passing lamps. I will be going with Kurykyn Silver bullets mounted low on the engine guard. IHMO you get plenty of light for night driving plus the added benefit of being more visible to cages.

My Little Bro has the eglide motolites and they are incredible. he put lots of miles on his and he lights up the Texas roads like a landing jumbo jet. the lights are by far the best for light. they are durable and expensive . they are motolights and I wish I had some!
