So I found out today that the 2007 M109R LE I bought in February has a HID Conversion Kit on it. I found out by realizing that I had no headlight. I open the cover and see the bulb has exploded and the base of the bulb is melted into the headlight plug. The headlight area now buzzes when I turn the key to the ON position to start the bike. The kit is made by HID Lighting Company out of Hong Kong.

Should I just replace the conversion kit with another one or should I just replace the bulb and plug? My only thing is if I replace the bulb and plug, I'm afraid that the ballast might be bad and I will blow another bulb and plug. Let me know what you think?

Did you get Kit 1 or 2? I'm not sure which kit to get. I'm assuming since the current bulb plug in my bike has a magnet in it, that it would be kit 2. Can I still get Kit 2 at that price? How do I order one?

You can get those kits at the prices posted. I was the one that set up the original HID group buy on these kits.

Did you get the group buy price? I have it listed in the Bang fr the Bucks thread. 99% of the people go with the 6000k bulb.
