I would not recommend it. Your wire-harness is designed for so much...It might also blow a fuse? If a fuse does blow, I would not recommend replacing the fuse with one of a higher amp-rating. You really could melt the harness at that point.

You can get a hid kit from ebay for around $50. May have to deal with a crappy seller but once you get exactly what you ordered, your G2G.

He nailed the take-off, but when he landed, something terrible happened. His front tire exploded like a cannonball, and his handle bars went straight through his head. Blood was everywhere. His teeth were ground down to a powder, and the front of his face exploded out the back of his skull. He died instantly... the next day.
