Very easy install (not that I did much, teh BF was driving)- ballast mounted on the left fairing, done in about 20 minutes, and that was mainly due to just tweaking.

It was really, really easy. It's not hard wiring, it's pretty much plug and go. Even a non-mechanic like me could follow along, I'd be comfortable doing it on my own now that I've seen it done once.

What's the temp on that HID kit? I'm looking to pick one up this winter, but it's gonna cost about 150$.

That's the 55w, 6k bulb

We just did a single, didn't cost anywhere near 150 Put a halogen bulb in the hi-beam just to match color.

I really wanna do this to my bike eventually.

You can find some deals on the internet for about 110 both high and low.

Would I be able to use that same bulb for both lights? I'm finding a bunch of kits that have both lights, but are more expensive due to convenience. I'm not worried about having one light brighter than the other, just that one turns on and off, and they're the same color.

What bulb type did you order?

I honestly don't see the difference looking directly at the light.. how does it perform on the other side? Ive thought about doing this myself but I wouldn't want a blue light. Id much rather yellow.. =0
