@Octane, no doubt something like a pulsar enclosure, will not have as much reflection , than what can come from a head lamp enclosure. Stobes outside, like behind the grill etc, is of no use at all. I tried it and it looked bad, Felt like the car was sparking or something, and I actually had a guy once stopping me, saying 'saar, engine see spark nikhal raha he'

Strobes in a headlight Enc is the best job. So go for it.

Hell no to Led Strips, Saw one on a Laura yesterday and I felt like playing crash and burn with him

@dreamcatcher:Go for it I will.The headlamp assembly would be the best place as the finish would be uncluttered.Jus hope they are a direct fit to the parklamp socket.

Messing with the OE headlight unit is not at all advisable. As some other members have pointed out, the stock headlamps on the RS are expensive, best not to take a chance. Just my POV. Yes if they are a direct fit into the parking light socket, then that should be relatively safer.



Cheers

@ricky63:Thanx man.So as of now, the Options for the Strobes Install is like this:

O#1:Check if the strobes are a direct fit to the parking light socket.If it is, installation complete.If not, go to O#2.But replaced strobe light to be controlled through the seperate module already supplied to ensure that they are on only when desired and not when driving with Xenons or Headlights.

O#2:Source an empty reflector housing(not keen on bike indicator reflectors, so what else then?Are cheap pear shaped rectangular fog lamp reflectors once popular on Zens,m800s,Omnis a good option??) and mount it behind the grille.Alternative to this is O#3.

O#3: Drill a hole in the seperate Indicator Assy. next to the H/L Assy., since that housing is relatively cheap.(To me this is also a good option since the risk involved is comparitively less)

What say guys?Any other suggestions??
