I bought a xenon HID upgrade kit from Amazon over the winter and figured while I am unable to ride recovering from my gall bladder removal surgery I would try to get the kit installed.
After installing one of these kits in my truck I am a huge fan of them, they are so much brighter and cleaner light than halogen (and get rid of the yellow tint to the light) and I feel make night driving so much safer. The added benefit on the bike is during the day they will be harder to miss.
The kit comes with 2 slim digital ballasts, 2 bixenon bulbs (that flip from low beam to high beam), and a wiring harness relay.
The kit I have is this one (9004): http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Unfortunately there are a few issues with the kit, mainly that they expect you to ground each bulb at the bulb location. This is different the kit in my truck unfortunately. In a car this wouldnt be an issue but with the bike it obviously is. My plan is to run a ground wire from the battery along with the power wire and ground the bulbs to that wire.
I also will need to find a way to run the wireloom with the power wire and ground wire from the battery to the headlights.
The other thing that I need to work out is where to mount the slim digital ballasts. It looked like there was room to mount them inside the front fairing but I wasnt sure if this was safe.
Anyone with experience with these kits in the 2012+ ?
