I bought some 6k HIDs and they are not as bright as my buddies cbr. Is the projector style headlight on our bikes the reason for the poor brightness?? Thanks in advance.

are you looking at the lights above or below the cutoff line?
theres no reason (under same HID and color temp) should a ghetto light housing such as a cbr beat our projectors.

They don't seem as bright because they're more focused. Pull yours and his bike up to a wall and see who's brighter now. The projector focuses the light in a specific area. Reflectors spread the light everywhere making it seem it's brighter, but in truth they're both equally as bright. You will just have more light in a certain area then your friends cbr.
