Hello, I have some questions regarding the laws that apply to motorcycles with HID projectors.
I would like to install an HID kit on my motorcycle (this
one, to be precise).
Before spending lots of money for the kit and the work, I'd like to know if this type of conversion is legal in Switzerland.
I have read many stories about Xenon projectors in Europe. I have gathered three main points:
- The headlight unit should be designed to work with HID projectors
- The headlight unit should have a cleaning mechanism (spray) to clean the lens from dirt
- The HID projector should auto-level, to avoid blinding oncoming traffic while going over bumbs, etc.
Now, these regulations should apply to the EU. As we all know, Switzerland is not an EU country. So I'm asking: what rules apply in our territory?
These laws are about cars, but I know of some motorcycles sold stock with HID lights and I don't think they are equipped with automatic washers (but they do auto-level with a servo motor)
. Example: BMW K1600 GT
Can anyone with a bit more experience on the topic chime in? I'll send a mail to the local MFK asking the same thing, tomorrow.
