HIDs for VN900?

I'm curious if anyone has found an HID kit or has a way to make one for the VN900. I would like to add 2 lights, one for high and one for low. Or at least a dual light that will work as the original does now, integrated.

You have the stock head right? Using the h4 bulb? All you need is a bi xenon h4 kit. Try to get anything from 4300k to 6000k and get the slim ballast digital AC. Some say the ballast fits inside the headlight bucket.

got any pics of the setup? since you have a relay i am guessing you ran a harness right? i was going to get 55w cause thats what i always run in my other vehicles but after installing dual 55ws on my R1 and running the harness i didnt want to go thru the same work on the vulcan.

i would love to see your setup (where you installed it and the output of the kit)

thanks!

just used the connectors in the headlight bucket. I called it a relay before on the left side, but I think that is the igniter. Results are really dramatic..

sorry not real clear, had to attach some blade connectors to the harness, then just use the female connectors in the headlight. btw, there were not any instructions in the kit, but in both our cars I have installed HID light kits.
