just short trips (6 mile round ) my battery slowlly goes down.   It seem it takes more to start it that gets replaced.  

To solve the problem I put a 18 watt yellow light in the headlight on a switch to replace the low beam  (day-light running light).   I switch back to regular after dark.  

Whats that about a HID headlight ?   What kind of watt saving is that?

O yea  Also did the LED tail/brake light.

Interesting !

How did you go about fitting the 18W yellow light ?
I have a pair of 35/60W 5" headl;amps, which I would like to fit replacing the single original, but your idea is quite interesting...

I  cut a hole in the reflector and mounted a single filimint standard bulb in it.   Mounted it below the regular bulb.  In hine-sight I should have used a smaller bulb.   But it works fine.   I'll take a picture next time I take it out.   The Yellow matches the trun signal running lights, I'll picture that too.

Got the idea from a China  (Roketa 200)  dirt/ street bike.   It had a kinda parking light mounted in the headlight reflector.

I think I'll take a picture to day when it get to hot to work outside .
