On Cycle World’s top list of Best Used Bikes, the half-faired Suzuki SV1000S is a capable sports bike that is whole lot of fun on the road. It also features rock-solid build quality that will give you many years of use. Whilst the SV1000S remained in production until 2007, the lighting technology used in these bikes is however more than 15 years old today.
The factory-fitted setup is a double halogen headlight with reflector manufactured by Koito. Not only does this make for a very poor light output; with one headlight for low and the other for high beam, the bike also takes on a black-eyed appearance.
Fortunately, there are upgrade kits that will fit inside your existing headlights, and these provide you with the full power of xenon on both beams – and in both headlights. No more black eyes. In fact, you’ll be hard-pressed to find brighter eyes.
We’re talking about a boost in light output of up to 500%!
These complete retrofit kits provide you with superior brightness and durability, and come with a 2-year warranty. What's more, with leveling systems that work with the headlight connectors, the halogen-to-xenon conversion is truly effortless.
You will improve the light output considerably, making for safer and more enjoyable riding. And, of course, your Suzuki SV1000S will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
