This is a H6M 6000K Bi Xenon HID kit installation on a 2007 Yamaha Raptor 700 SE2.
The H6M Bi-Xenon HID kit is located here.
This kit is $70 shipped from Kryptonbulbs.com to anywhere in the US.
The H6M bulb is a Very common bulb on quads, rhinos , and even some of the old 3 wheelers like the Tri-Z's. There are well over 50 machines that I know od that use this bulb, and im sure many more that I dont know.
So, knowing that these fit many quads, feel free to share this thread or copy and paste anything you like onto any quad forums you are a member of to get the word out on these things.
Ok, first lets run through what the kit includes:
2 Bi Xenon H6M HID Bulbs
2 Slim AC Ballasts with mouting plates and hardware
2 Individual Relay kits
8 Zip ties
OK, to start off I removed the Front Fenders, the seat, the radiator shroud and the tank cover. This gave me plenty of room to work and route my wires nice and clean.
I then removed the Stock Bulbs and set them aside, at this point I installed the new HID bulbs, They are a weird bulb with a spring loaded base, but once you have them in hand they are pretty easy to figure out.
I then got to looking at the stock wiring and soon realized (as I figured) that this was not going to be a plug and play operation. I did a test fit of the wires from the kit to the harness and I did get them to fit but I was unhappy with them:
wires from kit:
Harness from quad:
(the blue wire from the kit attaches to the top right prong, and the white wire from the kit attaches to the top left, the bottom is a ground and is not used as the ground is picked up straight from the battery in a later step)
Harness from quad and wires from kit connected:
Now, I tested the system at this point and it did work but decided for 2 reasons to not do it this way.
Reason one, I just plain did not like the wires left in the connector this way.
Reason 2, I wanted to get the dust cover or grommet off the stock wires.
So I cut the short stock harnesses to splice into, These harnesses are $12.50 each from yamaha so if you had to or wanted to go back to stock, its only gonna cost 25 bucks to be completely factory again.
I spliiced the wires, Blue to Yellow and White to Green
Then taped each wire individually
And Finally taped the entire harness
Here is the pics I forgot to take....
I mounted the ballasts, one off the gas tank mount and behind the radiator and the other down behind the light on some module or something that has a heatsink on it. I wanted to do them both behind the radiator but I just did not have the room.
I then installed the grommets / dust covers over the wires from the new bulbs, I had to cut holes in these covers to get the new larger wires through (these covers come with the harness for $12.50 each from yamaha) this one a cut a little big by mistake, the other came out perfect. the bulb itself does a good job of filling the hole, but I wanted these in place as well)
At this point I made all the connections for the system, they are very simple and you really cant screw them up unless you plug the bulb into itself or something crazy like that. Everything only fits in 1 spot so its almost impossible to screw up. I also connected the harness I crimped onto the wires of the HID kit to the factory connection at this time.
I then zip tied the extra wire together and mounted it where it will be covered by the fenders
