    My motorcycle headlight turns on whenever the key is on, regardless of whether the engine is running. There's a momentary cut when the starter button is depressed but other than that, they're always on. This kind of power cycling is hard in HID lights.

    I haven't actually done this yet. It's just an idea that I plan to execute on my CBR600F4i when my HID projectors arrive next week. If anyone out there knows anything about electronics please don't hesitate to leave feedback. Thanks.

    By the way, "IGN (+)" is power supplied only when the key is in the "ON" position

    Wow. Makes sense though. Plenty of stupid people out there who can't figure out how to use a butt connector, let alone solder a joint, and therefore prefer to use quick-connects. But, they can sure figure out how to disable their srs and abs system, crash, and then hire an attorney to sue the forum from which they derived their ill-conceived idea.
