i've been running the arc 600k hi/low beam h4 kit for almost a month with no issues. plug and play kit, i just start the bike with the high beams on (normal halogen bulb), then when the bike is warm i turn the hid on. turned the idle up slightly and have no flicker, even holding brake lever and turn signals on. idle is about normal too. loving the one hid, one normal bulb setup



same thing, but 2 hids for me, just no high beams..dont need them tho

TT-350z can you post a picture of how you ran your ground. I get what your saying about not using the factory one because it sucks but I cant picture how you got around the factory ground, did you just not use the factory headlight plug at all and ran wires? basically just looking for a picture of your entire wiring setup if possible. It would be greatly appreciated.

we probably dont wanna get into how mines done, thats a whole different ballgame lol i dont wanna confuse you all

you can just cut the ground wire off the plug on the hid, or the factory plug and ground it to the frame, its that easy
personally i would cut it on the hid side, so its a easy switch back to stock if ever needed

Haha gotcha. Have you had any problems with it killing your battery at all? After seeing a few people talking about it running ok but draining off the battery its kinda turned me away a little, guess i could always use these as backups in case the ones in my truck or car die :lol:

Sounds good, Ill be giving it a try this weekend then. Ground wire on HID straight to frame and see how it works out. I appreciate the information man.

are you using 2 ballast for hid lamp so you need to install a separate switch i have 2 hid 5000k but i was uninstalled due of my battery is no good wait til get a better battery i will re-install will be good to go please don't use damn lead acid battery !!! they gonna kills your ballast if you on under 6amp loads is gonna killed the ballast !!!! so need a dry cell type battery from odyssey orange battery (army grade) they wont kills the ballast because they are over the 6amps is much better and stables that i still planning to purchase a battery very soon that why i am very critically needed replace battery

run your light off high...dont wire your low beam...then when u switch to low it will get no power..

Pics? ...vids?....
I'm considering ordering this harness....but at the same time think I'm better off just buying a relay and calling it a day. :dubious:
