Standard is 35W HID. What you see in cars that come with HID. Racing is 55W HID.

Did you do the dual headlight mod because I have an 06 and my lows and highs dont come on at the same time, of course I haven't done the conversion to HIDs yet?

I am admittedly a new-b but i have a question.

if these type of bulbs wont run on half power and therefore cannot provide (at least not this kit) a dual bulb low and high beam.

what makes the high beam brighter when it is on than the low beam?

they are both 35 watt bulbs with the same color intensity correct?

the ballasts are both the same correct?

does it have something to do with the way the lens diffuses it?

Hid High Beam Warm Up Time

Hey folks, just got a question regarding the original kit that was used for the write up in this thread. on the high beam, let's say you ride around with the high beam off, and when you need them on again, how's the warm up time on this kit? does it like take the usual 3 to 4 second to get to it's normal operating output?

Bulb Spacer?

I bought an h7 hid kit from another vendor and before i start taking the fairings off my bike I have one question. I see from looking at my kit that i dont have that bulb spacer/beer mug looking thing. Do i need that? If someone has already asked this question i probably missed it skipping past all the 17 pages of this thread.

R3DS2K,
Yea that's the rubber piece im inquiring about. I bought an hid kit off my toyota tacoma forum and at the last second i thought...eh why not buy a kit for my bike while im at it. its an h7 kit but when you open the package it looks exactly like the one from ddm but obviously does not have the part you pictured above. Should i just drill a 3/4 inch hole off the dust cap and hope for a really tight fit from the rubber plug where the four wires go in and out?

if you have the rubber piece but not the plastic piece that goes inside it.. i would get some silicone and silicone the rubber piece in place so water cant get in

confused

i am severely confused as to what kit to purchase. The link from the very first post goes to a sale item which is a car kit with 2 bulbs, ballasts and battery harness. It shows a 4300k for $110 and a 4300k 55w kit for $150. I'm assuming it's supposed to say 4500k and that's a typo. Someone else posted a link to the motorcycle kit for $90 and you can buy the extra ballast and bulb for $20 and the harness for $30. None of these prices match up to what anyone said they paid. Do you need the battery harness for a bike? I want to order these right now but I don't want to order the wrong stuff. Can someone clear this up for me?

that is the link you want to use to get the HID's. That's the sale price from Oliver and the kit that I have, they work wonders. I purchases the 55w 8k cuz i wanted them brighter and that tint of blue. If you want pure white just do the 4500 or the 6k, both look good and are bright. Either way the kit comes with 2 bulbs, 2 ballasts, and 2 igniters.

This is always the biggest mistake about HID lights. People think that because they are brighter that they are hotter. The fact is that HIDS run much cooler than halogen. If your stock bulbs cant melt the housing your HIDs cant.

I have had mine for about a year now and have had no problems.

I've had my kit only a few weeks now and I absolutely love it! I bought the 600RR kit from zenonexpert, and have nothing but praise for them. Even with the postage all the way to me here in Australia. Big thumbs up, great product!

some will say 55watt racing hid kits wont melt anything but the 55 watt racing hid kits do run hotter than stock. i just dont see the need for 55watt on the streets when you can just aim the 35watt higher hehe

yeah, someone posted the link about the special pricing in the 03-06 section a few days ago. i was hesitant to buy because someone said with this kit you need to buy "xclips" to mount the bulbs. i didn't know what he meant by xclips and was wondering if it was that plastic cup with the 4 prongs that seals against the rubber cup...and if you said all is included, along with this plastic cup/4 prong thingy..i'll put in my order today.
thanks for confirming this r3ds2k...
