So I was looking around on that "auction site" and found an H6M HID kit... had to try it out. $80 and 5 days later... it arrived!
Here's the pics. Scuzz (gary) was video confrenced with me while I did the install but I'll tell you how to do this now and i'll probably update this in the future.
Basically you have to take off everything to get to the headlight. It's all 5mm hex and 10mm bolts.
Once you get the headlight, then you can start this EASY process.
Thing to remember...
There are three wires going into the headlamp bulb...
Green - Ground
Blue - High Beam
White - Low Beam
You'll see here in the pictures how I did everything...
Here you see the three wire plug that the headlight harness plugs into.
This is the back of the head lamp with the rubber protective coating pulled back. Remember the wire colors?
This is what it looks like with the HID bulbs in place. To make this work with the black protective covers, I cut these red/blue wires and cut the original headlight harness to get the black cups out so that I could reuse them with the HIDs. You'll see in the next pictures how I did that.
This harness pretty much gets trashed. Gary looked up a new one at $43 so if you ever plan to go back to stock, that's how much it will cost. You'll need the plug from the other end of it and the black protective cups.
Here's one cup with the wires through it. I used WD40 (10001 uses) sprayed on the wire to help get them in the tiny little hole.
This is about where I cut my wires. I wanted to make sure that I could get the splice back in the cup.
Here are both cups finished and ready to go back on. If you see the white wire in the middle thats just to fill the hole, its not connected to anything since you only have 2 wires now instead of 3.
The best way, and the way I should have done this was to solder it back together and then use heatshrink. While in the middle of the install I realized my soldering iron tip could not be found, I just went ahead and used butt connectors. My bad.
And here is the finished product for the headlight housing. The rest of the stuff is plug and play. I kinda got carried away and forgot to take pics of the rest of the stuff. There is one more part to this that I didn't photograph but I can next time (soon) I take the front plastics off and thats the plug that plugs into the factory harness.
When you get the lights, and plug everything in, there will be a black and red (positive and negative) left over. These will be connected to the rest of the headlight harness. I cut the 3 wire plug off the harness with about 2-3" of wire left. If you take all the plastic off of it, you'll see how the factory spliced the left/right side lights together in this. All you need is the plug. I joined the blue and white wires together, since I didn't want my light to go off if I hit the High or Low switch even though it was on. And then made my connections as follows:
Black - Green
Red - Blue/White
Here is where I put my ballast. These were the slim ballast and they fit right on top of that heat sink that sits in the front of the quad under the grill. I then zip tied the secondary thing (ballast?) to the frame rails as you can see in the following picture.
And here they are, in all their glory... they LIGHT UP a house thats 300 feet away. I had NO IDEA these things would be THIS bright. It's like 2 - 1 million candlewatt powered spot lights on the front of this quad... They're SICK! If you ride at night, these are a MUST!
