Do you guys know if this will hurt the electrical system?

Not sure, but let us know if you end up trying one out. I'm interested to see how easy installation really is

Don't ever trust the wattage rating posted on ebay. I bought blue bulbs for my old car that said they matched the stock wattage, and fried my harnesses.

you can purchase the kit, just remember to buy the relay kit as well. the relay redirects the power draw away from your harness and draws it from the battery directly. its much safer and the kit will last longer since its getting a fresh source of 12V all the time, instead of the harness.

If you really want an HID Kit, then get these. http://vvme.com/catalog/list-s-10145-10146.html
you get a pair of H4 bi-xenon kit. Good for two bikes for the price of one. I nstalled one on my M109 and the other for my cousins Vulcan 1500. It's a very reputable company and responds to email very quickly. The shipping was very quick. When ordering a kit ask for the slim ballast.

Here's a comparison: sylvania silverstar ultra on HI beamAnd HID on Lo beam
