HID kit

I know this has come up before but can someone suggest a compact and plug and play HID kit for my 1078 F4 please.
As far as I have read I need H3 globe,35 watts and 4200 or 6000K,is this correct? So what brand kit do I search for.

ddmtuning.com Go for the smaller wattage and compact ballast

4200-5000 will get you the brightest/whitest light. Anything higher will go more towards the blue/purple and will not be as powerful (still better than stock but not as good as white).

Thanks Ryan,do they do a kit for a MV or do I just order a universal kit.If so does the wiring plug straight in or do you have to cut and re-join wires.
It's OK,just being lazy.Got onto the ddmtuning website and read the info,so I ordered the 35W,4200K kit.Price is excellent,cost me more in shipping than the kit itself.lol

The only thing you might want to do is cut into or poke a hole through the rubber seal on the back of the housing and re-seal it. Otherwise the rubber cover wont come back on easily and will leak.

Sorry about the late reply, yeah its really easy. Most HID kids are "plug and play." The hardest part is mounting the ballast. I made a little bracket and squeezed mine behind (or in front of, depending on your leaning) the instrument cluster.

The fairing stays you posted for the 312 are for a race fairing or will they work for the street fairing also and where did you get the set up in the pictures

The fairing stay is race only. NO headlight.

I can remember just now where I got the HID Kit. I was at a bike show when I initially bought it.
