DDM HID's problem...

I just installed a DDM HID's 6000K on my '04 zx6r. I took the bike out for a ride today ... they came on just fine, looked great. I pulled over for a pit stop. When I restarted the bike the lights won't come on.. this was the first ride on the bike with the after the installation of the lights...i tried unplugging all the wires and still no luck. Any help with this will be appreciated. Thanks ...

Check the fuse first.

HID's require alot of amperage to ignite but then pull less then standard halogen to continue the chemical burnoff.

In rare conditions, people need to install time delays for the HID lights because the starter pulls too much voltage during start and the ignitor triggers its max amount then stays off for the remainder of that key cycle. But most systems aren't that advanced.

email them and see if they could make you a wiring harness? it connects the power straight from teh battery vs off the OE light harness.

and i recommend a harness vs PNP for cars and bikes. regardless of 35 or 55w setups. and sit. like yours is why.

Do you have anyone close by to help you out? You should not have had these problems with the kit. There are 3 636s that ran these kits fine (Mine, davids, and garys).
