03-06 BKmoto Projector Install

Here's my DIY write up for the BKmoto projector kit. I got the projectors with single angel eye, backing plates, 8000k HID's and ballasts from BKmoto. I sourced additional bigger angel eyes, different inverters for the angel eyes so I could connect 2 halo's to each inverter, and side emitting LED strips from different places. If I would do it all over again, I'd just get everything from BKmoto to save myself some major wiring headaches.

Before the install I watched his install video on youtube a few times to make myself familiar with the entire install. It can be found here:

At the same time of the install I changed the color of the LED's in my gauge cluster as well as blacking out the lcd panels.


Now onto the projector install!

First you need to remove the front cowl, which is fairly easy to do so I won't get into it. There are other write ups on how to remove it. After you get the front cowl off, you need to remove the headlight lenses from the cowl. There are 4 visible screws that you need to remove. To get to the final screw holding the lens to the cowl, you need to remove the BAS sensor and you will see the remaining screw to free the lens.

Once out of the cowl you will be left with this. I removed the wiring harness from the lens to make it easier to work with


I then wrapped my backing plates with carbon fiber vinyl


Next I removed the dust covers from the back of the lenses


Followed by removing the existing HID bulbs I had installed

After I got the bulbs out, I took my heat gun and removed the clear lenses from the rest of the assembly. It only takes about 5 minutes, you just need to go around and get all of the epoxy heated and you are able to remove the clear lens. Do one at a time


Now you remove the existing reflectors. There are 3 bolts/screws on the back of the housing that you turn counter clockwise until the reflectors come free


Next you will need to remove the 6 black screw tabs (3 on each reflector) and trim the tabs on them. It's shown on the video what I'm talking about. Install them onto your backing plates and install them into the housing


Next you install the projectors onto the plates and route the wiring through the holes above and below the projector hole.


You then need to attach all the wiring plus battery and adjust the cutoff line on the projectors. I didn't have a picture of it, but its easy once you get everything hooked up. Remember to put some blue locktite on the threads and projector bolt to keep the projector from rattling loose changing your cutoff line.

Next I installed my side emitting led strips to the clear lenses.


You need to route the wiring for the led strips and then you can go ahead and re-heat the adhesive on the lens/housing and stick the lenses back on. Use some clamps to keep the lens tight to the housing until it cools

Next comes to placing all of the wiring. I personally think this is the hardest part of the whole install because I'm so particular on how everything looks. You also don't want much wiring sticking out because the forks will hit it. I won't go into much detail on it because everybody will be different how they want everything. I like a clean look, so I tried to hide most of the wires in the body of the bike


You don't need to, but it would be a good idea now to check all your wiring and make sure everything works before you reinstall the cowl onto the bike. In the above picture I obviously already reinstalled the headlights onto the front cowl, make sure your BAS is installed correctly. There's an arrow and the word "UP" on it so you know which way to install it.

Go ahead and reinstall the cowl on the bike. Run your wiring to the battery for the ballasts however you want. I ran them on each side of the bike, under the mid fairings. Reconnect all of the wiring harnesses to the bike also. I installed a switch for the HID's, a switch for the halo's, and a switch for the led strips. It's a little tricky getting all of the wiring hidden under the fairings, but it's possible, just take your time.

Once you get everything reinstalled, you get to aim the adjuster screws. Two of the 3 on the housing for each lens are the adjusters (they are the ones that you are able to use a phillips screwdriver on) One adjusts up/down, the other adjusts left/right.

And here's the finished product!!





My lenses are dirty in the pictures so that's why it looks like there are some smudges.
the LED strips that I installed are coming up from the lens in a spot or two, but I'm hoping that when the bike sits in the sun for a bit they will lay back down where they are supposed to be

Did you have HID's that you took out to put the projectors in?

Thats what I meant, What are you doing with the old HID's.

They full setup or did you reuse ballasts or anything?

Wanna sell them on the cheap?

Absolutely sick, man. Well done and thanks for the write up. This is one of my next mods. I'm going with red demon eyes and leds over instead of under. Love the carbon fiber on the backing plates. Where did you get the CF and was it pretty easy to do?

What do you have for a 3rd eye?

I just got some 3m dinoc carbon fiber from eBay. It was pretty easy to wrap the plates since its just a flat surface

For the third eye I just have a led bulb in there. I'll see if I can find a pic of it

Haha funny you say that. I was on the fence about projectors. I met up with another member on here for a ride. He had projectors installed and I thought they looked amazing in person. Between that and my high beam ballast going bad it's what sold me on getting projectors myself. If the weather holds this weekend I'm going t try and get some better pics

So I went down towards Chicago today to meet up with some friends to ride. We were meeting at a bar down towards where they live. Turns out they were having a bike "day" (it was only like 1:30 in the afternoon haha). There were maybe a handful of sport bikes and probably a good 200+ Harley's.

I got there before everyone else so I was just sitting at a picnic table waiting for everyone else to show up. While I was sitting there, there were a bunch of Harley guys walking past looking at the bikes. A few stopped in front of my bike admiring my projectors

Nice!!!!! I want to do this so bad with out cutting the reflector housing and now you showed me a way thanks. Did BKMoto give you the black pre-drilled bracket or plate for the projectors? Also where did you get the carbon fiber wrapping?

yup the backing plates are included in the kit from BKmoto.

The carbon fiber is 3m vinyl that I got off ebay. There are some other brands on there that are cheaper and may look just as good

here's a pic with the lights off



and here's one with low beam


I took one with highbeam, but my phone didn't save it for some reason. With the high beam you could see the sides of the houses in front of me. Now remember, these aren't the best pics as they are taken on a phone

Thanks that looks really good. I have been doing a lot of research and I can't find the answer to my question but maybe you know. On BKMoto.com they say that your high beams will work with the factory switch, but my question is do you have to splice and solder the projector wires with the factory high beam switch or is it plug and play like a HID kit?
