Perfectionist Auto Sound & Security is honored to be trusted by many dealers around Anchorage with outfitting vehicles they sell to their clients. One such dealer is Marita Sea and Ski. They contacted us recently about doing a 2015 C-Force 800EPS lighting upgrade. After spending time with them to understand their goals for the upgrades, we worked up a proposal for the vehicle that they liked, so we scheduled a time to work on the ATV.
Lighting Upgrades Necessary In The Alaskan Darkness
As you already know, in Alaska, it gets dark. Really dark. At certain times of the year, we experience much longer periods of darkness compared to other places. What that means to Alaska residents is they want great lighting on their vehicles. If you have ever driven an ATV at night, you already know the lighting is subpar at best.
What we like to do is maximize the performance of the stock lighting and then add auxiliary lighting until the client is satisfied. In this C-Force, we replaced the weak, yellowish-looking incandescent headlight bulbs with our TurnAgain H4 HID system. The bulbs fit into the stock headlight housings, and then we securely mounted the 25 watt digital ballasts in a secure location. We use the 25 watt models on most ATVs, based on their limited charging capability, and these ballasts work perfectly on this model.
We used a relay harness so the ballasts now draw their power directly from the battery and not the lighting harness. Doing this ensures that the lighting gets all the current it needs and extends the life expectancy of the product. We properly loomed and securely mounted all of our wiring to allow for easy servicing in the future, and soldered all of our connections and covered in heat-shrink for durability.
Dual Vision X Light Bars
Once the headlights were working at maximum output, we added a pair of Vision X XiL-EP220 5” light bars. These are LED-based lights that only draw 1.67 amps of current each, meaning they won’t overload the charging system – but, boy, do they have lots of output. The included 10 watt LEDs along with the precision optics make for an incredible improvement in nighttime visibility. We mounted the lights securely to the front metal rack and installed a handlebar-mounted switch near the headlight switch, giving the rider easy control over the new lighting.
Matching Running Lights
For a finishing touch, we replaced the existing running light bulbs with new LED models that gave the rider a brighter, whiter light, keeping with the theme of the other upgrades.
