Got 'em hooked up, turned power on, flipped the switch...they're on, then......POP!! F%$#!! What happened?! Checked the bulbs (look okay). Check voltage (none at the new plugs). Check voltage at the stock plug (nothing). Fuses... Where the hell are the FUSES?!

Just an FYI for others: I had to upgrade my 10Amp to a 15Amp for the additional draw from the HIDs.

Problem solved...crisis averted....Carry on Pvt. Pyle

Yep! I had the same thing happen to mine! They look awesome, don't they?! Take it out in the street and see how far you can see, you might want to aim your headlight down a little bit, I did.

Yep, fuses are next to the battery under the seat and under the rubber cover thingy

H6M refers to the base of the bulb, Its a description of what housing it fits in. Fooleo bulb is a H6M also. The 8K is the bulb color. The higher the number the less usable light the bulb puts out. A 4K bulb is the brightest and most natural color, 8k bulbs have a blue tint with less visibility and a 10k would be purple in color and wreck you into a tree when night riding from low illumination.

I think the perfect bulb is a 6k, but thats just me. I like BARELY blue tint, looks very high end. If the 4300k is brighter than the 6k... i'm glad I got 6k, cause these things are retarded bright! I'm hoping to have night ride video soon!
