|Finding someone who has done this may be tough. |
There is very little enthusiasm for streetfighters among Ninja 250 riders. I've tried And if you're looking for a step by step guide, you're kind of missing the point of streetfightering. DIY is part of the process. But I'll try to point out a couple things, and you should be able to do it OK.
Just be aware that 2 x 60w lights on brings the electrical load to close to the maximum for the bike. Keep an eye on how your battery is charging, perhaps by installing a voltmeter.
Stock H4 is 60w high and 55w low.
Bikes that have one light for low and one for high actually give better light, as the reflectors are designed for each light. But you can't tell that to the people who think it looks bad.
The H4 has a simple connection. There are only 3 wires. If you look at the schematic you'll see that High is red, Low is orange, and Ground is black yellow. If you're using a light from another bike, you just need to find the appropriate wires for that light and hook them up. You should use the connector that goes with the new light to connect to the bulb, then crimp connectors and heat shrink tubing to splice into it.
|Do you need a relay? |
Since the lights are always on, no.
|Can this easily be wired to act as one bulb, so both bulbs have low and high beams using the stock lightswitch? |
That depends on what the original light was wired to do. If it uses one for high and one for low, you'll blind people if the high is on all the time.
