Anyone know about a conversion to have dual low beams on the 2013 zx6r? Why the hell do they continue to make these beautiful bikes cyclops???

They make these bikes have the "cyclops" look (one low beam) for a very good reason. Safety.

Let's say you're coming to an intersection. There's a car coming waiting to turn into your lane of traffic. If you have both headlights running the front of your bike will appear to be a car at a further distance away than you actually are. Said car turns in front of you thinking you're actually a car much further away. Bam. You hit said car.

The perception from the drivers point of view is that "he looked like a car and I thought it was further away than that."

During the day I was driving down the road and saw a big old truck with very bright hid fog lights. I thought it was odd for someone to waste money like that on an old truck. When i got closer i could see it was a bike with 2 hid headlights. The lights were so bright the bike blended with the truck behind it.

yup i prefer to have one headlight for low beam, and one for flash to pass as the new 636's have :) . and of course, if your lowbeam burns out, and your high beam burns out ..... you no more lights lol ..

Keep them separate !
