55w hids safe for an R6 headlight housing?

i know they're dangerous in the foglights of cars so are they safe in the small headlight housing on motorcycles? and does anyone have 10k 55w hids? i'm trying to get an idea of how they look

it might fry your wiring in the long run, stick w/ 35w

and even then i'd recommend a wiring harness directly to the battery

try hidfactory.com

http://www.motohouston.com/forums/fo...play.php?f=218

local and site sponsors, not as cheap as DDM but alot easier to deal w/

also heard that although 55w is "brighter", the quality on the 35w is better.
