HID flickering 55w, power draw etc
Okay so for a while iv been having on and off problems with the 55wHID's - They where installed into the stock wiring harness and not directly too the battery as iv read some have done... have had these for about a year, no melting, no fogging etc - generally I run them dual, starting only with low beam on ignition.
My time to work on the bike is limited with it being winter, about 0 outside, dark about an hour after I get home from work.
Issue im having is they are now flickering, both sides and dont turn on, I thought maybe my battery is not producing the required power to ignite them, but I have an aftermarket LED rear indicators and rear led taillight with a LED regulator installed into the wiring hardness (this is working and doing its job)
When i move the led regulator about in the wiring harness the HID's fire up, the wires are definately in tight and making connection.
Im near sure both ballists are okay, both bulbs are okay since they do fire on movement, have i possibly just too much power draw from a 55w set of hids? - altho this is a year on after them working okay...considering getting a 35w set (after a quick clean of the wires and swap off around of the ballists).
