HID co-op, genII busa;s or any bike w/ H7&H9 bulbs

so a gen II 'busa takes H7 Low and H9 High

most places charge more to get a bi setup, my thought was for 1 person to buy a pair of H7's and the other a pair of H9's

ddmtuning.com has them for like $65/set +shipping. for 2 bulbs

somebody along w/ me could get a set of HIDs for like ~$75

a single bulb is $42.50 + shipping

I have that kit. I did the split with Joebusa. The low beam is so hi you really never need the high. It doesnt make much difference with the hi on. It just lights is reflective signs farrrr down the road. You can read that far anyway.

The passing light still works despite what people say. It fires up way faster than people would lead you to believe.

well i have the DDMs on my car, and it takes longer then i'd like........if i constantly ran hi's during the day i could see it, but for mostly flicking that i do , i don't think HIDs are the way to go.

i;ve got some t-rex sliders coming in , and im gonna have scootertrash powder coat the stands black.

plan to do the lights and sliders at 1x so i take off the fairings only 1x

I bought the full kit but ended up only using one. The stock halogen bright on my 10R is good enough

Man, HID prices have dropped alot!

I got the DDM kit as well and haven't really had any issues 20k+miles later
One time the light turned off for some reason so I just shut the bike off and started it again and it came back on
