Lol I didn't even think about taking pictures of the lights in action. Will do. But I do have a picture of the handgaurds that are driving me crazy. As you can see they don't quite match in lining up, when you try and correct them it turns the throttle were I don't like it. As you can see it really doesn't protect to well for the throttle the way it's turned but the other one is just right.

The asymmetrical hand guards would bug the crap out of me. I blocked my pod with snorkels so I want to see how much more light you get with the Xenons. I never used the pod but I'm sure for one reason or another I will miss it anyway. Guess I need a light bar now.

Haha yeah I am the same way they just bug me and I can't seem to correct them. Anyone have any suggestions to fix them ? I will get some pics of the lights this weekend. I bought them for just $24.00 for the pair. My local Polaris dealer didn't even carry the Xenons in stock but like I said they seem brighter for me then the factory's , for 24 bucks it's not much money to try them out.

My 850 SP is the same way. Left side is mounted on top of the bars, right side is underneath.

That would seriously drive me nuts. What is the problem from left side to right side that causes that?
