Looks great! Went with he 2 HID and 2 ballasts ? How do you feel the lighting is now while riding at night? I've only road once at night so far about 14 miles to work. I had the high beam on the entire time as I didn't feel the road was lit up enough for my liking. So going to be ordering this soon.

Your bike looks great. Was the HID install difficult? There is one video (that I know of) by GiftVon for this install, but Ineed more detailed install vids…like TST and Sportbike.

i have ridden in the dark for about 2 times only, so far so good i did not need to use my hi beams, but the blue light just takes a while to get used to. now i think i should have went for the 8k super white ones lol

hello, yes that is the same video i used o guide me with the install. overall it took me about an hour and a half to figure it out and a lot of replays on the video.. basically the video just helps you how to remove the plastics and where to place the ballasts and stuff.. but the actual wiring for the HID and making the whole on the cap is the time consuming part for me

I have been looking into this also... did you go with HID projectors as well or just straight bulb?
i jut went with the bulb. i just didn't feel comfortable doing other things since i am not that handy.. and felti might do more damage than make it look nice lol

Awesome, thanks!

I had placed my ordered a few minutes after I had posted on this thread originally. Tracking number shows that I should have them today. But won't be able to install them for a few days.
