So I finally got around to installing these Cyclops....holy sh!t!!!!  What a difference!  Now the problem is that it sounds like my alternator/generator is making some funking noises.  Anyone else had that problem after changing headlight bulbs and tail lights to LED's?
Did you install a resistor with the new bulb bro ? If you didnít buy one when you got he headlight I can bring you one to SERR!
Lean till it grinds , then lean some more ..

      I just saw this mod recently thanks to Ron505. What a great idea!
      The parts are little tough to come by, especially in chrome but I will have to keep an eye out for one. Awesome idea!
