I bought a set of stock replacement HID's. I don't like them at all! They are a heavy light, and broke my stock light mount off. I do minimal jumping so keep this in mind!! I am going to mount the on the handle bars or on the front end somewhere!! Other than that, they are kick ass lights!! Light up a football field, damn near!! lol

The only problem I foresee with the automotive type HIDs is that the ballast is HUGE.

The trailtechs are all self-contained.

Where did you find a reasonably priced HID setup to fit our stock housing? Got a link?

I'm probably going to end up with a pair of trailtechs mounted on my GYTR bumper.

No i got the hids from a wrecked infiniti fx35 the small suv. I hooked the up already but when i turn them on they flicker, it seems as if the bike doesnt have enough power to push them. Has anyone had this problem or any suggestions? Or do they bolt right up but my hids are busted?

Hid's from a car/truck will fit with modding, There are like 2 companies that offer the H6M HID kits, and there like 400 bucks. My old raptor I modded a HID set from a Lincoln to fit and they work great, but for my 700r I bought the visionx kit and they offer a lifetime warranty on the bulbs. Any HID questions pm me for details.

p.s I use to work for Phillips and made HIDS. :thumbsup:

I read up and the stator shouldnt be able to handle the two 35 watt hid ballasts. We hooked it up and they dont come on, but when we hook them up to a battery charger or battery directly they do. Whats up?

Maybe his stator is wearing out!! My '03 lights up the trailtech HID's but it's like a metal halide bulb! They need a second or two to fire up. A little longer when it's like -25 but the still spark up.
