Lightbulb DRL - Runner lights

Anyone thought of installing DRL strip as a substitute for the bulb runner light?
...or hooking up the DRL onto the existing bulb and run them both.

I really wanna do this to get a more futuristic appearance.

Tremonte?

I was thinking of something like this https://www.amazon.com/KT-Tailor-Mad.../dp/B077VF3WFH
Not my initial thought though

Iím curious, with that angel eye set up, would it be possible to run the bike during the day with just the halo ring? Or would the ring alone only work with the key on, engine off, as the OE parking lights are?

I'm not sure, but I think you get the option to only run the ring.

Here's some more info https://www.ktmoto.com/fit-for-kawas...ctor-kit-hp42/

Thanks! I sent them an email just to be sure, But based on the diagram they have posted I think youíre right, that you can control if the halo ring is on or off, and if the low beam is on or off.

More info

Quote:
1:Angel eye:the Angel eye is always on as the daytime running light while you start the engine.
2: Demon eye and low beam:there is the low beam on/off switch in our relay harness,it can be used to control the low beam and demon eye.While you switch it,the low beams will be on,the demon eye will be turned off;while you switch again,the demon eyes are on,and the low beams will be turned off automatically.
(Remark:if you choose without demon eye function,the low beam on/off switch would be used to control the low beam on and off)
3;High beam:you need to use your original high&low beam switch to control it.


So for achieving your idea(only run the angel eye).You can just choose the white angel eye,and without demon eye function while you place the order.

Awesome! Please post back when done.
If you do it, could you get us a guide on the process?

I did this on my bike. It definitely made the bike look more up to date. However I wouldn't mind an option to turn the demons' eye on/off, since as it is now you get either lowbeam+angeleye or deamons' eye+angeleye. I'd like the option to have only the angel eye lit as well. Not sure if green light is considered alright by police here in Sweden. Another complaint I have is that, with the beam at lowest setting, it's still quite high. I might have to find a solution to get it even lower. Maybe replacing the screws that holds the projector with longer ones. Install was quite easy, just be careful not to get the glue from the housing smudged on other components. It's a pain to get rid of.
