What´s the best HID Kits for 2006 f4?

Hi guys

I need to install a xenon HID kit in my 2006 MV F41000R. Does anyone can help me with that? I see in the market prices ranging from 35€ to 250€...


Can´t see anything at night with the original lights.

I bought mine from Evolution Bike and it worked great, with the exception that it would shut off when the bike hit 6k. If I switched the hi beam on then off again it would come back on but if I dropped below then hit 6k it would do it. Probably some issues on my end installing it seeing as mine didnt come with instructions but I hard headed it because ive done quite a few of them so I figured I could get it.

I put one from DDM tuning on my wifes ducati and have had ZERO issues with it for a little over a year now. Quite the deal for $26.

I, too, have had zero issues with the DDM tuning 35w HID that I installed on my Brutale. Recommended.

DO or DO NOT; there is no TRY

Just get a cheap 35W 4300K, anything above 4300k and you are losing light.

This.

I believe that BMW and Mercedes, Audi, etc, etc all use between 4300-5k. Its the closest to natural sunlight if I remember correctly.

While Ive only had mine for a year my experience has been the same with the DDMtuning kit. All of the parts feel quality, the ballasts are very small and easy to conceal and the coloring and startup on the lights seem to be excellent. The Phillips HID in my older BMW seem to take considerably longer to warm up than this DDMtuning kit.

Even if I had to replace mine annually, at $26 I dont really care. LOL

Guess different strokes, Id gladly pay 10x to not have to touch it again. The Phillips kit in my BMW is 10 years old and hasnt missed a beat, I hope this DDMTuning kit does the same. Although, Id have to concede a somewhat shorter life just due to the demands placed on a motorcycle light (being on all the time and constant starting).
