Can anyone update this topic?
Is kryptonbulbs currently a good place to get them from or not? Seems like reviews of them have gone way up and way down over time.
Thanks you.

No new info from what I've seen. I think when I get a 700R again, I'm going to give these a shot. $70 isn't too bad :thumbsup:

Yeah the price is sweet. I don't know if these have the common problem of one light randomly going out. Guess I could get off my back side and call. Just been busy.

I got mine from Xentec, (ebay). Mine isn't Bixenon but what the hell ya need hi n low beam on a 4 wheeler for? LOL I hooked mine to get power off both the high and low side of the stock headlight switch, so no matter which position I flip/bump the switch to, I have headlights.

Just bought a second kit for my other 700. $30.03 shipped to my door. Hard to beat that. I have had one ballast go bad, but I have to take at least part of the blame for that. When I originally mounted them I cracked the case of one, and that's the one that went bad.

I am gonna do a Bixenon kit on my V65 soon though. It needs high/low. LOL

Are these kits plug and play or do they take some wire cutting like the one in this thread?

The kit I ordered did require some cutting, just like in this thread. You can order a OEM harness to replace the one you cut.

Depends how you do it, but yea, out of the box it doesn't have a plug in for the power wires to plug into the raptor harness. It also doesn't come with a relay. Most kits don't I don't think.

I used and old pigtail off an old headlight to supply power to the relay. No cutting of the raptor harness required this way. The plug in on the taillight is the same as the headlights too, so if ya run across an old busted up taillight or headlight, grab the plug in and a short section of wire off it. Make any kit plug and play that way! lol

Another thing I learned about the hi low HID's is you need to make sure what you're getting. Bi xenon uses one hid bulb with a shield that moves around the bulb to change from hi to low and back. (no warm up period when switching from hi to low)
The kits that say Hi/Low HID use one hid bulb for one beam and a normal halogen bulb for the other beam. I can't remeber which bulb is high and which is low though.

This is good info to have. I think I personally am going to just get the nice plug and play kit from TQS. Normally I wouldn't mind messing around with non plug and play but lately I just can't find enough time so I would rather spend a little more and be done quicker. It's a nice kit with a nice warranty so no worries.

I've purchased two of these kits from the "manufacture" Lynoak_USA on Ebay, WARNING! do not buy kits from this guy especially! within one year 3 of these ballasts went out, only to never hear from Lynoak_USA,again.

I can't speak for other "Xentec" sellers, but i'm staying away from that product. :bs:

I have tried to order this package twice and hasn't shipped or accepted payment. Have Kyptonbulbs closed?

Here is their phone number from their web page. 585-478-2899

I would like to add when I searched Kyptonbulbs in google, google's anti-malware says that "site may be hacked" so i wouldn't trust putting information into that web page.

I would also recommend DDM tuning for HIDS, I have had the best luck with their kit on my truck. I just switched the 700 to LED pods, and like the light much better.

Does anyone know if Kyptonbulbs.com is still in business? From what I have read online and what Google has labeled them as(Hacked). Also why are there porn ads on their home page? I had to cancel my credit card after seeing that ad. If they are out of business please update the the main post to reflect.

can someone tell me if they had any battery issues with this? i thought the stock lights were 30w nd the hids were 35? anyones battery go dead? also does anyone know what the arctic blue 8000k look like? my bikes blue i thought it may look nice in it please someone reply
Do you have to take new wire drom the battery?
Cant one just wire the ballast on the stock wire,witout relay ?
Can we please get some answers to these important questions?

I thinking of doing the same (without using a relay harness), the stock halogen bulb is 30W and the HID is 35W and im not sure if that's going to work without issues.

We'll I figured it out and I'm adding this to this cause the h6m is low beam only and if your like me and want both hi and low you will have to get a h6 bulb very tough bulb to get only 2 people on eBay with it and the harness is what gives you hi beams along with h6 bulb!!

Not sure how the light will spread. It might be as those cheap LED lights that don't have any focus and are practically useless.
