I tried PIAA bulbs and it doesn't give you the same HID color and brightness. To get what you see in pictures people have submitted, you'll need to do the HID kit.

Let me make sure that I have this correct before I order.

I go to:

http://www.ddmtuning.com/product.php?II=107

Select 35w, H11, and 6000K x1, right? Not 2.

Then go to:

http://autolumination.com/otherleds.htm

Scroll down to 5 SMT Led Cool White and select Cool White and bax9s add to cart and change quantity to x2, right?

EDITED TO INCLUDE BIKE INFO: This is intended for a 2011 Ducati 1198.

Thanks again, all!

I totally agree! I got my 55w 6000k kit from DDM and I couldn't be happier with it. Took me a little over an hour to install but that was only because I was anal about wires running everywhere and took the time to hide the wires underneath the intake runners.

you are correct w/ the DDM link. just 1 kit. fyi, 6000k will be a little blue, 5000k is more white. (i had 55w 6000k in that zx10r u see in my avatar and they were so bright it was actually annoying to most people @ night, the 35w 5000k is a better option IMO.)

also correct w/ second link, x2.

enjoy them. :)

its pretty easy.

pull the headlight covers, remove headlight bulb. drill 3/4" hole for rubber gromet.

insert new HID, plug wires together and hide.

it took me about an hour. i put my ballast in the triangle piece on the side fairing, its best if the side fairings are removed when u do this. use velcro to hold the ballasts.

i removed the air ducts also, but did not have to take off the nose. just take your time!

i used a paddle bit instead of the one he has, works fine. again, i did not have to remove the nose, saves a shit load of time...

Not on the site yet, but we can sell them. I can take orders via forum and paypal to ship out to you. No issues between 55w and 35w, I personally think the 55w is the best bang for your buck light mod. It is Prolumen which is quality and their light output on my bike is amazing.


Pricing for forum members will be:

Prolumen Slim 55w Digital AC Kit : $165 shipped priority to your door

UDD Slim 35w Xenon/Kit : $100 shipped priority to your door


Those will be the two main kits we sell on the forum, but we also have access to a German made kit that is very nice and sells for around $145 shipped and then even crazier we offer a 70 watt kit! That kit is insane and not recommended for a bike but any of your cars it would look amazing, that kit is $260 shipped.
