Buying HIDS

So i have been doing my research on HID's and I think i am going to go with the 8000K kit...but i have confused...

WHAT THE H*LL is the difference in the bulbs? H1, H3, H4, H7, H8, H9, H10, H11, H13, 9004, 9005, 9006, 9007...what does this all mean???

If you have an 07+, you should be ordering H7's. I'm not sure about the older model CBR's.

The variation in bulbs is basically just the backing that attaches to the bike. Get 6K, if you want visibility with a hint of blue. I had 6K and went to 8K, and I must say that I miss my 6K.

Ride as if there is a tomorrow to live for.
