Wires burning/getting hot

What up 600rr.neters, again I call on you in my time of need. So HIDS went out, turns out the solder point in the starter housing broke off(common issue?). So I bought a oem one (which is supposed to be updated), I installed the wiring for the new starter(not the throttle cable) and turned the bike on. HIDs still didn't work and i noticed a burning smell after about 20 seconds. Checked it out and some of my wiring is getting extremely hot. If I wait a minute or so, the wires get to hot to touch and start burning the covering on the wires and/or stuff touching the wires and it starts smoking. Reconnected the original starter house and didn't have the issue. Im thinking I got a faulty starter house or something?? I have no idea what to think. I ordered the stater housing from 2wheelpros.com.

Are you pretty confident on this? Does this mean my ballast went out or they are getting fried because I picked 55W over 35W? How can I fix this?lol

Unplug the hids and go back to stock lighting. See if the problem persists

OEM lights work fine, although it looks like the running HID light bulb is donezo, bunch of white residue around the center of the glass

Chuck them and get a new set. Or go back to stock since you did mention that setup works fine.

Thanks for the help guys, does anyone know why it might be doing. this? My Hids have a warranty on them but I'm not going to get another pair if it's going to burn off the solder point in the housing or if the Hid kit is going to need replacement every 7-10 months.

I have run them in many bikes without issue, as have many others here. 55w should be fine, but without proper projectors you're just spraying extra light around and pissing off other people.

Personally, I'd return them and get 35w if you're set on having them.
