HIDs for k6 Gixxer1000

Hey folks, my name is Nic and I am new to this forum.
Anywho, just picked up a used k6 gixxer1k and I want to put some HIDs on it. I saw some folks said the low beam and high beam use H7 bulbs. I also saw some people said H7 for low and 9005 for High. So which one is correct for an 06 gixxer 1000?

And when I order the bulbs and the ballasts do I need to buy the Bi HID kit that has low and high integrated or I can buy the low and high bulbs separately as in separate kit?

Reason I asked cause I installed an HID kit in my Nissan Pathfinder and it required a BI HID kit since there was only one connection for both lights.

I'm thinking about EBay since I almost order everything from EBay. Thanks for answering the questions.

DDM tuning is where you want to go. I believe your hi and low are seperate bulbs. They sell them in singles. I got all 4 of mine for about $80+ shipping

Thanks for the chart Joey but I believe that High beam part is a factory part number.
Chuckster: I think you are right as the headlight uses different bulbs for low and high beam.

I tried to install my HIDs today and I was having a hard time trying to figure out how to close the hole where the light sits. The original low beam has a connector that's connected/bult in with a dust cap so the dust won't go in the headlights. The hid kit I have did not have the cap to cover the light after it's installed. I thought about using the factory one that was on the bike but I would have to cut the attached wires and drill thru the connector that was built in the cap..I thought what if I decided to restore the lights back to factory then I would be . Any one had theirs installed can pinpoint me to the right direction?

My bike is an 06 gsxr 1000. Tried to find pics and instructions on the same model as my bike but no luck.

Would have to see it. Mine pretty much clipped back in to the factory sockets. Had to do a little modification but nothing major.

I have an R1. Sorry, should have stated that. Seems like they'd make all bulb replacement easy on all makes though. I did have to modify the dust boot and a couple of pieces. Nothing too complicated though.

Gixxers are a bit more complicated since they drsigned the headlights to be in the middle of the bike. It's harder to access the bulb. I might have to drill thru the dust cover to run the wires. Can't close the dust cover with the aftermark HIDs

h7 bulbs should come with a extra harness with a rubber boot for the dust cover, but i've seen some sellers not include it. when i don't have the extra harness, i pull the pins out of the plug, drill two holes through the dust cover, feed them through, put the plugs back on then epoxy or silicone where the wires run through the dust cover. from what i remember you should need h7 low and 9005 high, best bet would be to take your stock high beam bulb off and get the correct number.

You are right on the bulbs. Was thinking about doing that this weekend. Was planning to get extra wires to run the ballasts underneath the passenger seat instead of putting them at the front of the bike. Heard a lot of people having problems with placing their ballasts near the fairing and such. Thanks for your advise.
