DDM HID install in GEN II busa

so i got around to installing my HID's

thanks to this thread, it was alot easier

http://www.hayabusa.org/forum/gen-ii...l-removal.html

thanks fella;s

TRY AN AVOID TOUCHING THE ACTUAL BULB!

this is to show basically the entire kit.
your going to eventually cut the clear plastic over the bulb itself and discard it.
i ended up cutting the plastic grommet that held all the wires.
i also cut off some black piece that is show in pic #6
The red and black spades plug into the OE harness. Red - WHITE in the OE harness and Black - BLACK in the OE

everything else pretty much plugs into itself.

rvbnd1

to show how small the ballast is

qohe78

10hndag

i put everything on the right side, the left has fuses and such

o9qxll

i ended up routing the wiring thru this spot

244wqpx

I also ended up cutting this piece out too, not sure whats is for.

2ptxduw

i ended up cutting this grommet thingy out as it prevent the dust cover from closing completely.

s5wjl1

this is all you really need coming out of the dust cover (the red and black spades that plug into the OE harness) , i ended up shoving that rubber grommet i cut off, inside the outer tip of this cover to try and keep some water out.

1zbth0h

ended up using the double sided tape to hold down the ballast and ignitor (the smaller black box) have an assortment of zip ties ZIC

1ihclv

plug everything together , zip tie as much as possibe.



its really an easy job and if your in town i'd help you put it together. i would say really about an 1/2 hr job. plan ahead. cuz i had to cut alot of elec tape that i had around the OE harness of a few times cuz i found a better path

sfeyp0


only shot i have as its raining now, and i also cleaned up my bike

hope this helps

yeah, it supposed to shorten the life of a battery.......but then a relay cost $20-40, and a battery about $50 every 2-3 yrs w/o relay supposedly.......so its not like it's big $

so may not even be worth it.

I thought it was just me, but the lights on my Busa don't put out good unless on bright.

I wasnt that impressed with the stock lights. The ones on my 00 zx6r were brighter. The hids are almost too bright. I cant stand Joe being behind me.

If the fuse is set properly it will blow first.

The initial spark of the unit is what draws all the power. Xenon lights burn continuously w less amperage then a modern halogen bulb.

The problem with aftermarket ballast is the fact that they dont use alot of primary winding to fire the secondary wiring, so it will draw more power then if you were to swap and HID ballast, module and bulb from an oem vehicle/car.

Even on a relay, the wires can burn. The fuse is designed to be the weaked point in the system and to break before wires burn. If the fuse is too large, the resistance in the wires will produce heat with all the amerage going through them. If the constant draw is too great, the wire insulation will belt and the load will be transmitted to the wires like a heating element vs powering the device. That is until the exposed wire hits ground, the circuit opens or the fuse is finally blown.

I always recommend leaving at least one accessible halogen bulb on the bike. You dont want to be starring at dusk and have both lights go out on you. Car Toys wont be able to offer a ballast.

(and dont say it wont happen; it happened to someone w a dual set up last HAK night ride.... one side went out, the other side followed shortly.)


As for night riding; I rode the busa everytime I went out at night(about 4 nights a week) and thought the lights were perfect w the Sylvannia NightVision halogen bulb in low beam; angled up a couple more degrees so its not blinding peeps infront of me.

i had read on the busa board, diff members trying a diff startup sequence which the light would only turn ON after the bike was started

i did it 3-4 times, and i can't figure out the proper sequence. so i left

i noticed that my clock had reset.

so now i plan to wire up a harness that aaron has AND put the timer in..

Sorry to bring this thread back from the dead, but I just ordered the exact same DDM HID kit and I didn't order a harness with it.

Have you had any problems with it so far, Racer X?

haven't had the problem as of late, but i also had my reg/rec replaced under recall. so that may have helped and i also changed the sequence for starting the bike, and using the clutch, while holding down the start (thumb button) this keeps the light off till i let go of the thumb switch'

ordered a DDM kit for my wifes new bike '09 suz gladius, they screwed up and sent a wiring harness (w/ 2 leads, had to disconnect 1) for free. so thats wired the way i really want the busa, but just haven't messed w/ it.
