Just installed HID's on my 2004 R6. Looks sweet and lights up the road alot better. Also there is significantly less heat from the lights. The hid's are running only 35 watts so that helps with the battery. Check out this link for pics.

hid install.

I used a hella 8000k kit. I bought it off ebay. About 450 bucks. The install was easy. Just plug and play. Only hard part is finding a mounting place and making sure the ground wire is attached to a metal surface. Also making the wires tidy, but its really easy to do.

Hey Romeo. I think it sounds pretty good.. Not too loud but deep enough when you hit the throttle people will know you are coming. If i can do a sound clip i'll send it to you so u can see it. And with the angel eyes; i got a buddy says after a long day of riding or over time your stock lights my melt the angel eyes, so be careful. If you need help with your HID setup let me know, always willing to help another R6er!!
