For really BRIGHT lights, go with the real HID kits, these are awesome!

I'm getting the VFX kit this week and should add to the review already started :mrgreen:

Any suggestions

Hey Penfold and DarkR6... do you guys have any suggestions to the type or brand of HID lights I could get. I mean, I want like blinding lights that go into the regular bulb sockets, no add-ons.

Secondly, how much is it to have the whole Dr. X Kit (fender eliminator kit), and the license plate mount all in all final cost. I looked at their site and it was a little confusing. I think their rep needs to browse the sight, that'd be cool, and like up their product, sounds neat, but they're site is a little iffy. Maybe if it was as cool as this site, they're get more hits (if they need more). But, how much for fender eliminator, tail light/flasher kit, fast flash kit, and the license plate holder?

Thanks guys!

I only have the Pivot kit from VFX which is the license plate holder. The tailight integrator I have is from CustomLED (there is a vid of it in the download section under misc. vids). If I were you, I'd get the DIY DR.X kit from VFX ($189.00 cdn = $140 usd approx). It's so easy to do. If I could do it, anyone can. The Pivot kit was $119 cdn ($88.00 usd approx) and just as easy to install. Best bet is to do them at the same time since you'll have all the wiring exposed and it'll be much easier.

So total, about $230 w/o shipping. I'd contact them first and see if they still have their 5% discount for forum members.

As for headlights, I haven't the faintest........sorry........

Try e-bay dude, they have the lights, and fairly inexpensive fender eliminators that come with blinker lights. I got mine from there, email me for pics buddy.

Be careful when buying new lights. I've heard of some people putting in brighter lights & having the headlight lens crack & the clear plastic cover melt.

You'd not be able to claim that on warranty. Try to stick with the same wattage as the originals.

SolaceRye, I'm doing research on which HID kit is best on the market right now. I know HELLA makes HID kits for various bulbs, meaning it'll take the place of your exisiting bulb, fit and function properly. The HID Kits are REAL XENON HID lights with the ballasts. Real HID bulbs run at 35watts and produce considerably less heat than conventional HALOGEN bulbs. The 2003 R6s use H7 bulbs and the 2002 are H4. Good ones are similar to what BMW and Lexus vehicles use. These kits are plug and play, you'll just have to mount the ballasts somewhere. I'll see what I can find and maybe we can do a GROUP BUY??? If it generates interests. Right now they go for $350-$600 per set. Will keep everyone informed :mrgreen:

Here is a way to have blinding bright lights in about 2 minutes without spending money!!!!
I learned this after I lowered my bike, because the drop in the rear shot my headlamp up a little more. My boyfriend, who usually rides in front of me, said that the light was DAMN bright!!! He says it also flickers in color from all of the reflection going on in those bulbs. He says it looked really cool. We had to adjust them down a little bit, because at night, everyone thought I had my brights on. So now they are back to normal.
Anyway, look in your manual for the screw you turn to pull your lights up, and that will make a big difference!!!
We always ride around during the day with our brights on, so that everyone can see us--had to throw in the safety tip. :mrgreen:

I just installed my tail kit from M.D. Wright Inc. last nite. Sorry no link.

However, this was my favorite kit cause it looks the most original, or looks like it is stock in other words. Others are obviously looking doctored with, added LED's, brighter or what not, but to me look odd. The MD kit uses the stock bored, no new LED's, integrates it, and adds a flash alert kit that can be turned on or off for preference.

Top notch quality, plug and play basicallly (3 color coded wires to conect with stock colored signal wires) along with simply unplugging stock harness and plugging new stock harness in for altered tail.
New here, so not sure, but i got a discount for being a r6messagenet member.

I've got a question for anyone regarding fender eliminator kits.
If you one is installed, where do you put the inspection sticker :?:

In CT, we don't have inspection on bikes. The only thing we have to display is our registration sticker on our plate (top right hand corner).
