This is nice, thinking of getting one. But is the high beam on all the time? If it is, is there a way to wire it up so I can have the option of turning it on/off?

If you point them both down all the way then you will only see whatís right in front of you, maybe 20-30 ft ahead. I pointed the high beam down a bit so I would not blind people but still wanted to see 50ft ahead.

All the stock functionality stays the same. So you can turn on and off your high beam, but I always keep mine on. This kit is basically plug and play. You replace your stock bulb with the kit, and everything else stays the same. The hardest part is hiding the extra wires/ballasts.

The kit I got was DDM HID 4500k H7 bulb size, and the standard wiring harness can plug right into your bulb connector. Once you get the polarity right, see write up above, its really just plug and play.

The form factor of these ballasts makes them a lot easier to work with and hide. Now all that's left would be somebody to come out with a plug and play kit, no cutting.

If you are talking about cutting wires, then the kit is plug-and-play. If you are talking about drilling out the dust caps, then yes thatís the only real modification you have to do to the bike. The dust caps are completely removable, and replaceable if you want go back to stock. At first I was appalled at the thought of drilling out something on my bike, but when I saw how the power is run to the HIDs and stock bulbs, itís really the only way. This kit is as close to plug and play as it gets.
