Wrong........a 35w HID will pull??????? guess what.........35watts; same as stock........pretty sure its 35w.

The fact that a 35w HID globe will be brighter than a 35w Halogen has nothing to do with the amound of stator power needed. One thing a HID will do is draw alot more from the stator during start-up. Its just a fraction of a second but it can actually draw more than your stock wiring can handle.

At a guess the 700XX will have 2 x 35watt globes and a PIAA H6M would be a good cheap substitute. The H6M draws about the same wattage as stock but puts out nearly twice the lighting power.

Actually I'm not but may could have been more clear about it. Of course a 35W HID will draw 35W but the lumens will be much much higher. So he could actually get a HID kit that draws less power but is much brighter. The bit on the amp draw is a bit overboard also since we are being technical about it. If the stock bulb is a 35w a 35w HID will not burn up the wiring.

I'm thinking i might try those PIAA bulbs first, as their cheaper than an HID kit and just plug and play.... we'll see... i'll take pics if i do it.

This guys name is Rich and his kit is supposed to be about the best going. I would think the TRX450ER kit would work fine but contact him coz he'll know.

All reports indicate this kit is reliable and very high performing. It comes with a HD wire harness.

FYI...

To get to the lightbulbs is very easy. Take off the red or gray plastic, the obvious 6 hex head (5mm i think) bolts take them out. Then a 10mm bolt is tucked in, inside the fender on each side and the headlight assembly will twist out very easily.

I took mine apart tonight just to see how easy it was... very.
