My HID low beam sometimes doesn't turn on. When I turn the ignition on the bulb always flashes, sometimes it stays on.

Faulty ballast?

How is the high beam? Same thing or not? Did you recently do any mods to your electrical system? If the High beam side is ok, try switching the ballasts. The lower priced HID ballast are known to flicker after some time.

High beam is fine. Haven't done any electrical mods.

Not sure what kind of HID kit the bike has (modded by previous owner). Can replacement ballasts be easily sourced?

I haven't had a chance to swap ballasts for a test yet. The Low beam ballast doesn't fire up at all. Could there be a wiring/connection issue that would affect the low beam without affecting any other electrical system?

Without taking a multimeter to it, it'll be hard to pin point. Try the easy stuff first. Test the OEM plug for power, check fuses, etc.
