DDM HID unpacking

So i bought my DDM hid kit and it took about 11 days which i personally thought took forever.
These are the 35W H7 8k.

The boxing was poorly done... some what falling apart and the kit itself look shabby and not sturdy. And i think there might be small cracks on the bulb covers...

Here are the pictures:












So I was wondering, are these all the pieces you are suppose to get?

I'll try and get these installed soon and upload before and after pics.

Yup, that's all you get. There's a good reason I switched from DDM to Volt, that's one of them.

My old DDM had a piece that was on the bulbs wiring that would sit in the rubber boot. That might be it. The small pieces look like scrap pieces.

the "larger" small pieces are used as the opposite side to the rubber seal that is in-line close to the bulbs. VERY useful on our (03-06) bikes with the rubber dust covers behind headlights. Instead of cutting a 1" hole in the back of the plastic dust covers (07+), the plastic will back up into the rubber backing and keep a good seal on the dust cover. I love my DDM kit (especially because I think we can't complain at the cost).

Got the exact same kit. It's pretty good. No problems so far. Kind of **** packaging though here too

Remember kids, always drink and drive.

I found out those little pieces are to fill the gap of those bigger pieces.... lol. to make it a full oval.

Sorry for asking this but that plastic cover protecting the bulb itself can be taken off? and how does those plastic pieces fit?

anywhere is there a video of step by step? im total noob.

Screw the cap off and break the base off. I cut it with a pair of scissors.

As for install, check out this thread; http://www.600rr.net/vb/showthread.php?t=131095

I could have sworn DDM used to ship out from CA where they're headquartered out, at least that's how I remembered getting my first kit a couple of years ago. My most recent kit was sent from China, took longer, and also seemed to be packaged rather poorly.

I believe you put them on the bottom of the bulbs where the wires attach. the tabs on the other side are to get the correct distance from the bulbs so they will secure in place with the wire on the headlight.

You might have to sand or cut down the tabs a LITTLE to be able to lock the bulbs into place.

The install is pretty much straightforward you just need to find a place to put your ballasts.

Here's a write up, the install starts 1/4 way down. And its for a 07/08 but same idea.

The black pieces should flex a little (dont pull them apart so they break), but if remember correctly you can just push the wires in one at a time and they will fit through the slice on the side.

Put wires through one at a time then slide up to bulb. When I did mine I had to but some of the tabs off to make it fit correctly.

So guys i installed them, installing was piece of cake, but placing the ballasts were a bitch.... actually let me rephrase, ballasts fit in the little gap between the lights, but i couldnt find room for all that excess wire and the other smaller rectangular/cube part attached to ballasts. So.... I did a true DIY and heat taped them on.... looks kind of ghetto and any sort of input/ideas/thoughts would be great.

ill have some pics up shortly.
