Oh, great. I'll look it up. I hope it isn't as expensive as the HID convertion system.

Yeah HID's make a big difference I have a 6000k on my regular and 5000 on my high beam. I believe I have another blast and another HID bulb lying around if you want to do you high beam.
Just saw the picture of the blast and inverter I have those exact ones

He has another that he is probaby going to get rid of.

Anyways, I don't know if they've increased in the last few months, but there were just over $80 a side with the lifetime warranty when SC and I got ours. So high and lowbeam would have been a little over $160.

Look again....kit contains the ballasts, bulbs (3K carries an extra charge), igniters, wiring, and accessory harness. The lifetime warranty is 25 more. It is 145.13 shipped to my door now for 5K including the warranty. Like Gary said only thing you'll need is a drill bit and some cheap extras (screws/velcro, cable ties, loctite, etc)

True I guess I didn't about the groument because I had a few. The one year warranty is fine with me because they don't give me problems. I had some with life time warranty and they gave me to replace a bulb that I just end up getting this set. If I am not mistaken the ones that gave me trouble was Xentech.

Looks good, I went with 6000K on my ZX-R. All the kits are basically the same Taiwanese/Chinese made kits anyways, so it doesn't really matter who you go with. Lifetime warranty & good customer service is always a plus though.

Inside or outside?

if the plastic lense gets wet or something on it like a cleaner and is not cleaned off good w water, dried w no residue then the heat from the light will make a haze look over it. If its on the inside, then yes, its the heat that's damaging it.

See if you can vent the housing a little more
