    hid's

    ye I would go halves with someone on this, but aren't we supposed to get the both of them as we have two lights on the bikes? besides I am the worst DIY mechanic on the planet!

    a guy i know as got these they r the dogs danglers
    I bought the angles eyes a few months ago as they looked well cool as it was a ring of light indside the headlight. But when I got the box and instructions it meant separating the glass from the housing in a oven and it all looked well hard work so I sent them back and had a refund. But the look of them was well cool. Dont know how the MOT would have faired too on them.

    "Older" shape Mille's only need half a kit as the dipped beam on them is only the one single light.

    I presume on the 2004 onwards "New shape" bikes that you would indeed require a full kit comprising of both bulbs and both ballasts. Unless they are like my mates VTR SP-2, despite it being twin headlamps only one of the lamps actually lights up on dipped beam?. I'm not sure as my bike is a 2000 model so maybe someone with a later bike can confirm.

    as long as it give's out a beam patten it fine which they do and the angle eye cant be the blue or any colour. theres a way around the lense buy a lamp protector and replace it wen projectors r fittied

    98 - 01 RSV's are H4 - Unless they have had the later headlamp and front fairings fitted.

    01 - 03 RSV's are H7

    03 - 09 RSV's are H7U

    All you need to do is buy a H7 6000K burner (Bulb) and sell the H4 on Flea bay, you'll find some bargains on Ebay for H7 bulbs/burners.

    Whoops!. I posted that link to the ones I was looking at going for as my bike is a 2000MY so H4 is the ticket for me!.

    Ballasts will be the same whatever bulb the kit uses, I'm pretty certain it doesn't matter.

    Yep, ballasts are all pretty much the same connector types, very few kits have different connectors but bear in mind that they can.

    You aren't the first one to make this mistake and you won't be the last mate.

    Just buy a H7 6000K bulb form here and plug it in!

    These bulbs are fine mate I've had some and am running one now on my RSV, takes about 14 working days to arrive but saves you a fair few quid.

    The company I got the H4's from are exchanging them for me
    Also ordered a set for my car as well from HID's Direct. They chucked in free postage after I said I was from the Vectra C forum
    Hopefully me and John (Smokinjoe) will have them on next week

    Not yet mate just waiting on the return parcel, they are really simple though. I started fitting everything until I realised I had the wrong burner
    I have fitted the same kit to my car though which again was a piece of piss although fiddly but the difference in light output is unreal. I have gone for the 6000k, the HID OEM on new cars with these fitted is 4300k. The only difference is that the 6000k has a slight tinge of blue whereas the 4300k are pure white but no real noticeable difference on the deck. Going to put a set in the high beam as well to create my own sunshine
    Will do a pcture how to once I get the new kit back if people are interested
