Probably the residual power trying to flow to the HIDs..I would always try to start you bike with the Highs off. Bikes electrical systems are not that stout like cars.

I just installed the DDM kit using this.. Installed in about 30 min.. My second bike with the DDM kits and they both have been great.

Very nice write up and I followed it. It worked great. Just a quick note. Instead of cutting off the ears for the clip, just thread it backward or tail first, it goes through easily.

I've got DDM 5000K 35w HID kit and some LED bulbs from ebay.
Didn't have a chance to see how they perform at night yet, hopefully soon...
Meanwhile here are pics:

I put in a pair of Leds from ebay and there's a error message on the dash. What kind of led running lights did you get? Do you mind posting a link?

This Thread is About HIDs

If you guys want to talk about LED running lamps, please go post on one of the dozens of threads about LEDS.

Don't be rude.

Thanks man for the details.
I just finished mine. High beam i don't like though as when you flick it, it doesn't show as much, needs some time to reach its working temp i guess. But overall, a must do.

I got my set from Sportiva on Ebay. Install nearly the same but minor differences made installation easy. for example the base of the HID bulb is metal so i didn't need to fiddle with the clamps.

this is how i did tidy my wires, later i installed some ziplocks.

And here how it looked.

even resistor-matched LEDs somehow lose their resistance after some time and that damned LAMPF! would pop up.

On my '10 bike, I put a standard bulb back in one of the lights, and the error disappeared.

On my '12, I just went into the menu and cancelled the LAMPF! warning. That and heated grips alone far outweigh the remap and the better geometry!!
