Default Good HID kit?

Hey guys, iam trying to find a nice Hid kit for my bike, but am not sure which direction to look in. I looked around ebay abit but i wasnt sure if any of you guys have had good luck with the kits from them. If you could point me in a good direction for a nice kit that would be great. I would like both lights to be Hid, the one signle running light, and then also when i place the highs on. I tried the search bar aswell, but didnt really come up with anything. Any help would be great. Thanks

The reason i ask with this too is i realize some HIDs are lower quality then others, and i wasnt sure if the Ebay ones held up.

anyone had any experience with this kit? I'm looking to purchase it.


also when converting to HID do you need to get projectors with it?

HID kits all pretty much do the same thing. The main difference is in the size of the ballasts (some as slim, and about as big as 5 credit cards stacked together - the normal ones are bigger).

Also, do some research regarding what color you would like. 4300K is the most white, brightest, natural light. Anything below 4300K will start to go yellowish on you, anything above 4300K will go blueish (6000K-8000k) and then purpleish (10000K+).

I started out with 6000K and found it too blue and ricey cause everybody and their dog has 6000 HID's, so I switched to 4300K bulbs and have been very happy with them ever since.

Even the 4300K will have a very tiny slight tinge of blue if you look at them from far away, especially if you compare them side-by-side with a halogen bike.

Here's some visuals, the bike is front is my friends' 05 F4i with stock halogens, the bike in the back is my 04 F4i with 4300K HID's. First pic is low beams, second pic has high beams too. The blueness is way exxagerated in those pictures I find, especially in the picture with high beams. In real life, you can't tell it's any other color than white 99.9% of the time. Pics were taken with my crappy 2.0 megapixel cell phone camera.
