Thumbs up 07 HID and relay install with pictures and video

Ok so heres my write up on how to install HID's and the headlight relay. The relay will be how the 06-08 R6's are like. I have a video and you will see how it works. ok lets begin.

Tools required
-Allan Key or Allan key bit for universal screwdriver
-Drill
-1" Drill bit
-Rachet and 10mm socket
-18 guage wires
-relay with relay connector (relay connector optional, i used for cleaner install)
-wire strippers
-sidecutters
-solder iron
-solder
-male/female connectors
-wire tap connectors
-Heatshrink
-Exacto Knife-
-Some time and patience

STEP 1
remove the right and left fairings. Twist off the headlight bulb covers. Use a ruler and mark the center of the covers. Bring out drill and drill bit and drill the hole.


STEP 2
pull out the stock bulbs and put in the hid bulbs. Use a Voltmeter if you dont know which is + and -. put gromet over the headlight cover hole.
Left Side

Now Hide the ballasts.
Behind Rad Cap
Behind Voltage Stabilizer Box.


Now it's time to install the relay here is a video of how it works as well as my HID high and low beam.


As you can see the HID's didn't come on when I turned my key to on position. It only comes on when the engine is fired up.

STEP 3
Here is a diagram my friend drew out for me.

Follow the diagram and wire up the relay. After you are done the relay should look like this.

STEP 4
Locate the alternater wires. They are 3 yellow wires going to that voltage stabilzer box. Undo the 10mm Bolt holding the wires. Cut the wireloom and tap into one of the yellow wires. Any of them will work.


STEP 5
Get out the 18 guage wire and add a male connector on it and plug it into the wire tap. Now loop the wire around to the other side of the bike. I looped it through the front cowl under the headlights.


STEP 6
Cut the + wire for the HID's and add a male and female connector to the wires. Add a wire tap to the - Wire.Bring over your solder iron and solder and attach the wires to the relay according to the diagram.
So attacth the wire you just looped over to the relay and add Male/Female connectors to the other wires on the relay. Attach everything up.


STEP 7
Everything should be done now. Test the bike and make sure everything works. Now zip tie all your wires, put back on your fairings and you are finished. Give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done.

This relay method is easy and cheap. Parts will cost you under 10 bucks if you dont have anything old lying around. For me i didn't have to purchase anything since i had stuff lying around. Way better than paying for a delay relay that only delays it for a few seconds. This way your headlights wont turn on unless your engine is fired up.

Great write up! What type of diodes did you use? I have my HIDs for my '05 and I'm going to do this same setup.

Hey sorry for the late reply. Didn't know anyone responded on this thread till I actually came on. I'm not sure what diodes I used since my friend gave them to me when I asked him for diodes. They are just regular ones used in highschool electronics classes. I suggest just asking the electronic store what diode to use. As for the bulb size it is H7. So far every bike I came across uses H7 bulb size.

so i had issues with this yesterday when i tried this mod.... hopefully someone is still around to answer my question. Is there any other wire that I can tap? Since this is an alternator wire, the relay would constantly be on/off since the current that runs through it is alternating.

Anyone here with DDM HIDs have their high beam (left light) stop working, and their low beam (right light) always work? It's not the fuse, or the bulb.

This happened me a less than two weeks ago on my 07. I had the ballast behind the rectifier. The head from both cut out the ballast from working. Move it to the side faring where it gets air and Iv had no problems since.

So it can be it's in a place that's it's getting to hot or you need a new ballast. Good luck.
