I cut the opening in the boot a little to let the bulb through. I dont think they should shut off after a min. Mine do not. I used double sided tape to stick them to the ram air tubes.

what did you do with the grommet that is attached to the HID wiring in between the ballast and the bulb/power plug?

ahh, thanks.

Now I just need to figure out how to keep them on, my bike may just not have enough juice flowing through the headlight wiring.

that plastic case that the bulb comes in is just protection during shipping right?

yeah, you have to break it off.

HIDs require less wattage AFTER initial startup then reg lights.

PM sent asking if you fix it with a capacitor or relay...i am thinking of trying a capacitor first, and a relay for power directly from the battery second.

mine just slid right out.

well today i made a custom wiring harness for my ruckus that included a relay and a capacitor to get the job done. here's a vid to show it in action. i rolled through the neighborhood and it's almost too bright i think.

Jim Powell has been saying that for a couple years to us bimmer owners. He delivered yesterday to 25 but it's only on the Predator branded 35W kits. Never rran the Predator myself, but the quality is a little below that of the DDM kits...well at least right now while they work the bugs out of it, and they might have already done so as I think they are on version II right now.

Anyone know if there is any reason why one couldn't buy the $25 raptor kit and slap it on the bike instead of the $45 ddm kit make for bikes? Is it just a smaller ballast on the bike kit or what?

It doesn't matter which one. I used the DDM car kit instead. There is no difference other than the bike kit is offered in single lights instead of the two in the car kits.
