As mentioned above, there’s no interview for this episode – BUT – we’re happy to announce that TRO author Margaret Dean is now our new field correspondent! She’ll be conducting most of the scheduled interviews from here on, with some unexpected interviews peppered throughout from time to time. Adding her into the production mix probably should’ve happened sooner ;)
Day Ray Writes:
“Hey Guys, just found your awesome article and greatly appreciate the time it took to post this great content. I’m currently looking to replace my Hawk GT headlight. When I went to Super Bright LED’s, they suggested a newer model than the LED headlight you showcase. Just wondering if you think it will work with the same installation technique you outlined.”
The short answer is yes, we believe it will work based on wiring options provided with this product – HOWEVER – we’ve long since discovered a much better looking LED headlamp setup that performs better to boot. Basically, the headlight for both Honda’s 919 and 599 are cross compatible with the Hawk GT, allowing for the installation of an aftermarket H4 LED bulb.
This bulb has significantly more luminosity than any independently plugged (non-housed) model. You can see the eyes of vermin that haven’t even been born yet, 1000s of years into the future. The “flood” effect is slightly lacking but for the most part, it does the job and then some.
