It's not $60 from DDM anymore. Price went up and at 11$ shipping you must be close to them but we price match

How good are these conversion kits? From what I've heard they scatter the light too much and you should really retrofit with xenon projectors. Is this true, or is it ok to just put the HID bulbs in your stock housing?

those who complain about it being scatter are a bunch of babies. i mean the original halogen is scattered. so what makes you think just changing bulbs are going make them more direct. just take what you now seen with halogens and amplify it by 10x. HIDs with stock housing are gonna be better than any halogen bulb you buy.

Which bolts are these that you have to take out? are these the only four that are holding the front on?

Here is what the front looks like when you take it off.

Has anyone had any trouble installing HIDs on the ABS model? I've just bought the 2010 cbr600rr c-abs and Honda is giving me some lip about how there's no space for HID ballasts because of the abs computer modules?!? Can't be right right?

@dragoljub did you have any issues with the ballasts getting too hot because its mounted so close to the radiator?

any advice will be appreciated guys! thanks

One of the most common places to put the balast is on the frame rail near the headlights. Which is nowhere near where either of the two ABC modules are.

Heat from your radiator aren't going to hurt them. Been running this kit for two years now with a lot of track days and not one fault

Anyone know if this will void warranty? Or should I just install the HIDs and buy an extra set of dust caps and put them back on when I go get my service check? I have extended warranty and scared that I'll void my warranty if I install HIDs

It will not void your warranty unless the dealer can prove that your HID kit caused the problem that led you to have a repair. None of our customers have had issues but if you want you can put your stock bulbs back if your dealer is really stiff.

dirty heads up just finished the inst of DDM's HID kit on my 09 Kit-- the fit is real nice-- similar if not the same as GAgi write-up-- the only con is the lt ballast on the lt side gets tucked under what i think is the ABS controll module-- that's maybe what your dealership was talking bout-- but you can see it some from rider position if your lookin hard enough

09 Black/Metallic
it is what it is.....

Hey Oliver, Im an idiot and bought the wrong kit from you. And before the problem was resolved I went and ordered the correct kit. I already sent an email [email protected] this morning before I made the second purchase, and just sent you an email at [email protected] after the second order was made. Im sorry for being a moron

Great Write up. Just installed the 5000K 55W and man are they bright. Bringing the bike out from the garage and into the heated basement made it even easier. Thanks for the help.

This may have already been asked in this forum or another, but I can't find it. Did you change the stock fuse for your headlights or leave it the same? I got the 8000K 35w ones.
