I'm very interested in getting HID lights put in and also have been looking at getting an "Angel Eye" style to them.

I have a few questions.

First off, with the fact that without leaving your high beams on at all times, which i still haven't fully understood whether or not is ok, you would only have one on which wont really give the effect im looking for.
What are some solutions to this?

Also, anyone have any recommendations on types of headlights i would like? or any reason not to go for the Angel eye look?

Only think that I can recommend you is don't go the circus tour. So many guys install HIDs with all the colours of the rainbow. In the end they show off their bikes and you can put it straight in a gardenparty as decorationlight. BKMOTO is always a good one, not sure if they have them for the R3 yet.

I've been looking into this myself and have tried 3 times to contact BKMOTO with no reply so the best I can come up with is going for this kit or trying to get in contact with him because I know for his R6 and R1 kits he wires them up so both light are on for low beam and switch to high beams using the factory handlebar switch (Good luck getting in contact with him though i've tried)

Also if you have better luck getting in contact with him could you let me know cause I'm still interested especially after seeing some of the thai R25 's https://www.facebook.com/pages/TG-auto-Light/805904939467607?sk=photos_stream and http://imgur.com/a/Ji6mi

I am doing my own custom Bi-Xenon projector set up without halos and thinking about moving the running light/ signal combo into the headlamp via custom housings. Using the morimoto mini H1 6.0 projectors with FX clear lenses and 6000K lights. You would have to custom install them yourself and will have to cut some plastic to. I am going for a different look then the BKmoto style. All the components for my build is about $400+ total because of the cool DRL and mini bullet housings I want to stick into it. Also ordered a 1in-6out fuse box and grounding bus for proper installation and another upper/inner plastic for the switches to mount to. It's going to be a lot of work.

when you say moving the drl/signal combo inthe the headlamp how do you mean? are you just referring to this style of drl http://i.imgur.com/ENDLIBn.jpg which is in the headlight unit or something else?

Those are more like LED strips inside of silicone, not real DRLs, I am doing something more like this,2 x small single LED DRL.2nd; Take the OEM signals apart and put the wiring and socket into a smaller housing with white/amber switchback, put them into the headlamp then I can use the original signal location as side running lights (I already bought another set of front signals). The signals should be close to the side front lens to still be viewable from the sides when blinking. Guess you will have to wait and see the finished product.

I've been trying to search for Halo or angel lights for the R3, I don't mind the low beam setting default but I just can't find any such lights. They force the r6 lights on me. Anyone know where I can purchase led angel lights? I want white ones. I saw a video of the projector style headlights with an LED strip and it looked sick but the guy speaks another language so it just proves too difficult to get him to do it.
