Default HID conversion

Hey guys, been riding home quite a bit from work at night and can't stand the stock bulbs. They just aren't bright enough for me, so I am ready to convert to HIDs. I just want to know what you guys are using and what you guys suggest I get. I thank you ahead of time for your help.

DDM Tuning, they have bad customer servive but the full kit is 57 shipped and they are great. They are a huge improvement over stock

http://www.ddmtuning.com/Products/DDM-35W-55W-Dual-Motorcycle-HID-Kit

35w is most popular because it fits better and u don't have to worry about heat..
H7 bulbs
and u can pick ur own color. Most popular are 5000k-8000k. 5000k is straight white, 6000 has a tinge of blue and the 8000 are blue/white.. i have the 8000k and love them.
U dont need any thing else. no harness or extra cables or anything. ill try and find the write up someone on here did.. shows step by step and makes it a pretty simple job.
