I've had 6000K HID's on my bike for a while now, got them from a company that at one time didn't offer slim ballasts, so they are the big one's. While doing a nitrous install, I noticed that something weird happens. It was a plug and play kit that plugged into the factory harness, so I couldn't have messed anyhting up. That's what I tell myself, and i'm sticking to it lol Anyway.......I had it wired where both lights were on when the high beam was on, and just the low beam was on when the high beam switch was off. When the bike wasn't running, I flipped the switch on and the fuel pump cycled/primed itself again....it did it everytime I flipped the high beam switch. They still came on and worked....but I don't want it to be doing any funky stuff with the fuel pump....esp while ridig and now esp since it's got some juice on it. Any idea's on why it would be doing that????? I took them off but I would really like to have another set....I found a place that sells 2 HID kits for $99 and the slim ballasts are $25 do it would be like $124.99 for both :biggrin

is there any chance you have the A&R kit? cause they're really pissing me off atm. just stopped working on me, i've replaced everything and they suck...

otherwise... if they're having that problem, i'd contact the manufacturer of the kit and very pissed offedly talk to them about the problem. you've paid your money for it, don't take that shit not working and say nothing...

By any chance do you have a relay harness. I've always read that you should not use the factory wires with the plug and play hids and install a relay harness bc on initial startup you can fry the factory wires and could cause a fire. HID's use more power on initial startup but then run 35watts.

It's actually a kit from ww.xenonrider.com and I put the factory bulbs back in and everything works fine. I flipped it prob 300 times and nothing changes but the brightness of the light

It was just a plug and play kit. Which sucks cause I loved the HID's. Maybe one day i'll get a newer set with slim ballasts and see if it still does it. For now, with the factory stuff, it works fine

What kind of issues do you have with your A&R ones. The only problems I had were that the side markers kept burning out. I just switched to the smaller ballasts and I don't have that issue anymore.
