There's a write up on it somewhere.....

Basically, drilled a small hole near the top of each head light, fished the leads through the....from the inside, then slowly pealed the adhesive backing off the LED strip as I worked it around the inside if rash head light housing, there is a small flat area inside that the LEDs sit in. Once that was done, I sealed up the hole in each of the housings and I wired mine up to the daytime running light lead inside the fairing, so the HALOs on on with the headlights during normal operation and when the ignition switch is turned to acc while parked, just the HALOs are on.....

Once you have the LEDs and the headlights out it makes sense and really is easy to do.

As for the PIAAs, they're just a plug and play deal, and an HID setup would just be wired accordingly in addition to the HALO mod. They looks great and surprisingly get a lot of compliments, for a $20 mod LOL

Though I maybe selling my headlights with them installed.......not sure if I'm ready to tackle my "new idea" for headlights
