Really close to pulling the trigger on the Gotham HID 55w 6K headlight kit. I can't really figure out what running lights are. I am not aware of anything that is "on" except the low beam headlight (all the time) and the high beam by the switch on the bars. What am I missing here?
Sometimes called "peanut" lights because they are the size of a peanut.
Believe they are some European regulation lights. Now on pretty much on any bike sold in Europe. Cost is less to manufacture and put them on all bikes than to make different headlights for different countries/regions.
Some older BMW bikes have a switch called a "Euro" switch that you can actually shut off the headlight in daytime. Haven't seen this style switch on anything newer (within 10 years). But I don't live in Europe either.
I took a shot and ordered the running light bulbs that Reject just suggested. My HID kit comes next week. I'm going to try to follow the DIY thread next weekend. We shall see how it goes. I'm a 2 on the 1-10 mechanic scale.
