Re: Headlights

It looks like your low beam is an H7 and your high beam (actually hi/lo) is an H4. I replaced the H7 low on my K6 1000 with HID and it was nearly plug & play. I had to modify the rear cover so I bought another and modified it. You also have to mount the ballast and find a mating electrical connector. It's been described here.

The H4 seems more complicated. A google search for "brighter h4" led me to this, which indicates that the Osram Night Breaker is a brighter drop-in. They also show some LED variants but I'd check out how much power they draw and what their dimensions are as both could be a problem. There could also be issues with the beam pattern. The Amazon link to the Nineo bulb seems to mention 36 W, a plus if correct. You'd probably have to rework the rear cover.

Re: Headlights

I've personally used DDMTuning's HID setups on a few past bikes. Never had to modify anything on my bikes to get them to fit, other than mounting the ballast somewhere inconspicuous
