Ok so im looking for a HID kit for my 06 r6. I found two diffrent websites that offer them for about the same price. One you just gotta plug it in and it works, its made for my bike. The other one you have to do all the electrical yourself. Any idea on which one is better? Heres the links to them. If anyone knows of a better place to get a HID kit let me know. Thanks.

Any H7 hid kit is plug and play. check out my DIY on HID installation in the how to section for the 06-07 R6.

I ordered mine a few days ago on eBay from seller hidgate. He sells Xenons for $72 shipped. I should be getting mine this week. I'll let you know if they are good.

I'm curious, as long as it's a H7 bulb, everything will work properly, correct? I've installed them on vehicles, but not a bike.

yes just get an H7 kit, they are plug and play, only thing you have to do is cut a 1" hole on the dust cap for the wire to pass through

The dust cap is the hardest part :)

Or you can route them thru the original hole.Did mine this way, but you will need to remove the wire leads from the plastic plug.Run them thru the hole.Then re-install the wires back in the plug.You also need a rubber grommet where the hole is to seal the area.Its a small difference, but it hides the HID wiring as much as possible.

Would you mind posting some pictures so I can get an idea?

www.liteeyes.com. You can get our Lite Eyes HID headlight kit with waterproof compact digital ballasts for your 06 R6. Use the coupon code "lightitup" to receive 15% off your entire order.

After using the coupon code "lightitup", the single kit is only $102, and the double kit is $161.50. Priority shipping is free.

I also have a write-up on how to install the Lite Eyes HID kits on a 2007 R1 (not an R6, but close). http://www.r1-forum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=231883

Looks good. Now you gotta get that auxiliary light matching. It bugged the hell out of me until mine was replaced. :*tongue

I'm installing the Puig windscreen sometime next week (once it arrives), and I'll change the bulb during that process. I don't feel like removing the screen twice in one week.
