Damn, my farklitis is flaring up. I'm all for the cool look, but concerned about how much the reflection is going to change. Few more questions I haven't read answers for.

1) How weatherproof are the ballasts?
2) How much is a replacement bulb?
3) Is this plug+play (ie. no new wiring to the battery)
4) Is it reversable in the field (ie1. if I need to safety the bike, I can swap in my regular halogen bulb and undo some wires, ie2. bulb/ballast breaks on a trip, can I simply throw in a spare halogen and swap some wires?)

Thanks for your time.

I have been researching for a while now, found a company in the USA (not sure if I should mention names so I won't) offering a "new" digital Balast technology that they claim is the bees knees. Small balast with igniter integrated together and so therefore more compact. About $200 to $250 USD.

Any Comments or comparisons with your product would be appreciated.

The Euro should use a H4 bulb, link for that kit posted above.

I researched this very thoroughly because I have a KTM 950 Adv retrofitted with HID and the Euro light housing comes with the H3/H7 combination not the H4. The H4 is standard on the USA light housing only.

questions about 9007 kit

I just received one of your 9007 hi/lo kits (97 F350). Very nice looking product.

The question I have concerns the Hi/Lo operation. When I was looking at the OEM lamp I noticed that the filaments are stacked vertically as compared to an H4 which has the filaments fore and aft of each other. How well does the HID capsule (these came with the in/out solenoid not a movable shield) work to distinguish beam patterns for the Hi/Lo beam?

If it's not very effective for 9007 lamps then I'd consider getting a straight low beam kit for the truck and using this kit on an H4 conversion. That might mean swapping out the lamps so I thought I'd better ask before I install this kit.

Thanks,

Question

Any chance this kit would work with a 2006 DR650SE?
Thanks

Hmmm, I usually prefer to make a purchase only when I have all the facts and at the moment they are not all on the table.

Also ready to buy, just looking for the info above...

And a bit of an insiders opinion on my post above as well would be nice, but I fear it might be too late - the competition is here http://www.xtralights.com/index.asp?...=1204665675516
Their product looks good, a bit dearer but I do believe you get what you pay for and they responded to questions immediately, we'll see what gives in the next day or so.

Pity, I like to support vendors who support the site, but am very wary of sending hard earned if they look sus.....

I'm in the same boat about wanting one for the KLR. Oh and by the way, your site links the KLR to the headlight setup with (2) ballasts and (2) bulbs.

Perhaps group buy?

Also, you speak of the projectors...yet I can't seem to find evidence of them on your website. Any suggestions

Oh and could you link the 50w, hi/lo (single bulb), h4 model?

Thanks!

For the 4th question...it would depend on how you wired it.

You could easily plug in the ballast/bulb setup, but leave the stock wiring behind the dash with the stock headlight plug. Put a quick disconnect before the Ballast and one on the stock wiring/plug...if the HID goes out on the road, just replug things up and go.

The only possible problem would be running all the wiring through the rubber dust cover behind the headlight.



I have a question also (which I think may have been asked arleady). Can you get a set with just one HID/Ballast? I just want one H1 for my 640 Adventure high beam.
