I just bought the 4500k DDM HID kit from Xenonexpert.com and love it but i have noticed that every once in a while when i start the bike the headlight will flicker and not come on... causing me to have to turn off and restart my bike... y is this? also i have the Tripage 15 sec delay on it but only on the low beam and this has also happened to my high beam as well but thats easier bc i can just flick the switch and fix it.... so whats the prob? any fixes?

check your wiring. make sure everything is as it should be. any cut in voltage will cause the bulb to go out. next i would look at the starter switch for any looseness. it cuts power to the headlights when the bike is cranking.

i had the same problem with my tripage delay hooked up but i figured it was because i had the 55w ddm kit it also would happen when i would downshift and get on it like 12k or so rpm it would flicker on and off till i slowed down so i took the delay out and all is good i would like to find out the problem aslo cause i want to use the delay to save my battery and like i said i thought it was because i have the 55w kit what kit do you have?

Yes, sometimes the stock headlight harness does not provide enough power to the ballast, and can prevent the HID's from not starting. Since HID lights can't be "dimmed", they will shut off if they don't receive enough power. This is a safety on the HID kit.

The solution would be to get the relay harness. This will provide power directly from the battery. You can also purchase the relay harness on our website. Here is a link. http://www.lite-eyes.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=46 Just specify which harness you need (i.e. H7 for CBR).

looks to me like it just runs the power and the ground thru a relay so i would say it does do both high and low beams

I'm selling my Xenon Expert wiring harness for $20 shipped if you're interested. It's never been used.

If you're interested in other wiring harness kits for your HIDs, you can also buy them for about $22+ shipped on ebay. You might also look on your local Craig's List. The one in Los Angeles is full of advertisements for inexpensive HID kits, so you might be able to pick one up locally.

Good luck!
