HID dilemma...HELP.

I bought A&R Motosport low beam HID kit for an 08 GSXR for my 05 GSXR 600. I was told it would fit bit as I found out the factory connector is a square shape and the kits connector is more oval shaped.

Any ideas on a fix to make it fit?

Cut the wire and connect them, just keep the old plug if you decide to go back to stock.

best thing to do is to contact manufacturer, send them kit back along with pictures of your bike's connectors and specs
things can heat up and then fail..
i'd say don't take chances, your call

depin the wires from the stock harness. then create an intermediate "jumper" between the stock wires and the hid wires.

I'd cut the connector and hardwire it. Just make sure you leave enough wire to where you can just re solder the oe connector back on if needed.

Um... Why not just use some spade crimps and grind them to size needed then push them into stock plug and tape it up so they can't vibrate out.... Then you haven't made a nick in your factory plug and you have HID's....

my biggest advice: SOLDER ALL YOUR JOINTS, properly!!
I have a GSXR 1000 K4, I put the HID lights on it using the connectors/splices that came in the kit. About 2 weeks of riding the lights would flicker.

Went to several shops around town (not gonna say which ones) but all 3 gave me 3 different solutions and 3 different cost estimates to fix. From needing an in-line capacitor, to a new voltage regulator and one basically told me that the HID Kit I bought was a cheapie brand and was going to sell me a better one.

I didn't have the extra $200 to fix it as I was quoted (da' cheapest fix), so I went home and did the basic thing and took voltage readings at different locations on the wiring harness to see what was going on and found different voltage drops at the splice points. So I took off all the splice/connectors and soldered them all and put heat shrink over them.

After I finished I started the bike and whallah, the light flickering disappered and it has been almost a year now??
