      Overall I am happy with the product and will keep it. Install was easy, everything worked first time, harness and connectors were good quality, ballast was compact. When you include the size of the ballast, all the extra wires with the harness and connectors, plus the over-sized relay they include to switch hi/low beam, it became a bit cumbersome to try and hide everything. I purchased two and they both worked but the bulbs were off by about 100k in color temperature, visible if you were looking for it, but not otherwise noticeable. I noticed that the bulbs had some wiggle room because they move back and forward for hi/low beam (H4 bulbs), and you could see some vibration in the light when driving, but only very slightly so it wasn't bothering me at all.
      So not perfect but good.

      Installed on a 98 Buell Thunderbolt.
      Total install time was under 1 hour, including removing and reinstalling the fairing.

      As others have noted, the bulbs are not H4 standard. They lack the flat spot of a normal bulb and will require you to modify you housing. It took me about 30 seconds with a Dremel to carve out the unneeded plastic. The instructions give no indication of how to mount the bulb in the housing. I had to install it, wire it up and check the function of the high beam to get it installed correctly.

      The light itself seems plenty bright, even in the stock housing. The high beam is mechanical, physically moving the element. I was impressed to find weather-tight connectors on all the high power leads.

      Recommended, with the caveats listed above. If you want a plug and play installation, look elsewhere.

                Comments about SPEEDMETAL HID Light Kit:

                I have had the kit installed for about seven or eight months now and had to replace the ballast three times. Outside of that I really like the light that's put out by it and the performance of the light but having issues with it not working is a bad thing.

                Comments about SPEEDMETAL HID Light Kit:

                Installed kit, had a freshly charged, new battery. Didn't work. Just got a buzz from the ballast and no light. I had 2 kits on had and the ballast was easier to swap than the bulb so I changed ballasts. The buzz was better, just lasted for a second when first turned on and went away, and the light worked! These come with a 6000k bulb which are bright but a little blue so I swapped to a 4300k and it's "warmer" with no blue tint and I like it a lot. Nobody at the store could answer any technical questions for me about the kit so I had to research and troubleshoot the issues online. So I had 2 kits, and needed them both to make 1 functioning light but exchanged the bad parts for good and now I have 2 bikes with BRIGHT lights. Bought the kits half-price on sale.

                Comments about SPEEDMETAL HID Light Kit:

                Waited for this to go on sale to try out. Did not disappoint. Was a somewhat easy install. It is plug and play, but the wires were a little short, could be longer for easier install. I have a 2009 Yamaha V-Star 1300. But was able to make it reach and work. The ballast was a little tricky to install in the headlight bucket but got it to fit. Once installed light did not project as far as i would have expected. But read a review where they removed the metal casing covering the bulb, and WOW! What a difference! Performs better than i expected.
