Default Hid?

hey sup guys..been lurking for a while, just got my f4i, and im loving it. came from a k4 sv650s. anyways i did search but didn't get what i was looking for..maybe some of you guys know..well im gonna mod this bike so i started wit hids i know for a fact that my ballast is 35watts but im iffy on the bulb watts..i know its an H7 and thats what i got in 8k color temp, but i purchased them separately ballast from a freind, and bulb from a local store. put everything together and it works, really nice but its been raining so i didn't keep the bike started for long, now i had time to read about hids and people say to get 35watts hid kit..im wondering do they mean bulb or ballast? or as long as the ballast is 35watts the bulb doesn't matter? im paranoid to burn my harnest can someone answer me? thanks in advance

your ballasts shouldnt output more than 35 watts...so your 55 watt bulb will only be running at 35..
