I just bought the bike a week ago and the prior owner told me the switch was another way of turning on the high beam lights...but obviously he was wrong. I trailered the bike home to get plates and such and started reading the manual that came with it and it explained about the independant HID light and the switch, so I went out to play with it and realized that it wasn't coming on. I just assumed that the bulb went bad and ordered a new one @$50. Plugged it in, left it hanging while the bike was running and all other lights were on and got nothing. that's when I started following wires to the ballast and checked the wires going INTO the ballast from the main spider harness and found I am getting no power readings at all. Oh, and I broke the new bulb trying to get it back out of the light assy because I thought that maybe I had to have it in place for grounding or something. Now I have the old bulb that I managed to finally get out from that bracket, I lost one of the small screws that was holding it in (dropped somewhere inside and can't seem to find it), and no power getting to the ballast.
I was actually seriously considering getting the HID kit from you because I read that I just have to twist in the new bulb vs trying to align that band bracket with those two small screws which I don't see happening..lol.
"Is this a stock HID? How did it go out? While riding, or when you turned it on it flashed and went out? Is it completely dead now? Is there any abnormal buzzing noise when you flip it on?"
Yes it appears to be the stock HID, I don't know how or when it went out because I bought it with it out, it does not make any noise either at the bulb or the ballast...I hope this helps.
