This looked like a great idea so i gave it a try... imo this was Very EZ & well worth the coin, I dont have them in my quad yet, but put what I could together on the bench...

Here is PCMamerica wright up on what I did I'm just addin a few pic's to help other's out..

Well I went and removed the light bulbs from the kfx along with the rubber thing behind the buld and unplugged the connector that is right before the bulb. Now its the rubber grommet that keeps water out of the bulb/headlight and it is actually glued to the wires.

I then pulled hard on the wires to get them to move. I cut them at that location and removed the wires from the rubber grommet. I hope you know what I mean.

You keep the pigtail that plugs in the kfx harness with the white connector. You take the black wire and strip the end off and the red wire with the black stripe is high beam positive. I took the ballast red wire and ran it to the red with black stripe and the ballast black wire to the black wire on the kfx for ground. There are 2 ballasts and 2 kfx headlight harness sockets to get ground and positive from.
Not sure If he went w/ this for good but I'm going to be puttin a relay in 1st (when I do that I will post a few more pic's)

Now, the hard part is understanding what you have to do to keep the HID bulb in H6M socket. its a perfect match but if you remember, the old bulb is held in by part of that old harness socket with a spring in it. SO what I did is remove the ground from the side of the socket, and remove the spring and circuit board the hi low wires went to in the socket, mainly remover all the guts. I stretched the spring out another 1/4 inch or more. There is heat shrink tuning on the H6M bulb part where the wires go out and I removed that.

Next you have and empty shell where the spring and wires used to be that held the old bulb in. Take the spring and put it over the wires first. The take the empty shell and add that second. i took the bulb and spring and shell and put it in the socket and locket it in place.

The old rubber grommet that the wires went thru need the old wires taken out and the new ones added thru. I actually slit all the holes together and put the wires in and used rtv silicone to keep water out. Thats how the old setup works.

After that I put the ballasts under each front inner white fender or green if you have that machine. They arre water resistant maybe water proof I hope but either way it should be fine. It comes with adhesive tape/lining and I used that.
Like I said I do not have them in my quad yet & Im putting in a realy when I get that done i will update.

Also a big thx to PCMamerica for his post on this which can be found here


Here is a link to the H6m light's I have...but w/a diffirent K....

Thats a really good job on the pictures. The one where you have the bulb in the socket is exactly what I was saying. I had to stretch the spring tho so the bulb didint move. I took the ballasts and mounted them under my front small white fender. it is bright as hell. The lighting color is nice too. Its winter and snowing up here so I havent started my machine in months. The lights do take some time to warm up, about 20 seconds but are nice and worth 100 dollars any day. Very nice.
