I shorted out the fuse controlling the headlights and instrument panel. I replaced the fuse and now the bike will not start. Headlights instrument panel and everything else works fine on the bike and it tries to turn over but no go. I tried disconnecting the battery for a few minutes and also charging/jumping the thing off my big truck but nothing. Anybody have an idea what the problem is? ,Check the plug like above says, read a review and the guy had it break down during the review, turned out the plug wire was attached to the frame, but engine acts as swing arm so it pulled it off when he hit a bump. Otherwise i would worry about perhaps an inline fure to the fuel injection or something. You need spark, air, and fuel. You're obviously getting air, there was nothing to change that. So check spark and then fuel. Does the exhaust smell rich like it's flooding when you try to start it? If not i would guess fuel, if it does go for spark. Good luck.,,,

How to install HID to honda xrm 125


Did you buy a HID bulb or did you buy the kit with the ballast etc? Usually an HID lamp will come with a ballast and wiring loom which is per fitted with relays etc. you would normally plug this loom into the headlight socket of your bike's wiring and then tidy the ballast etc behind the fairing and replacing your bulb with the HID lamp. If you don't have the loom and ballast they're pretty easy to come by on the auction sites.

Hi, Chrisblower if your headlight is not working the first thing to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply to headlight bulb socket.
2. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
3. Faulty ignition switch.
4. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
5. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.

common problem with hid's... is the installation your having a power drop... nowadays modern bikes are battery operated due to comp.box and dc cdi... if the system detects an amphere drop it will shut down... things you have to checks... battery terminal should be securely tight... check for loose ground lines, negative lines... hid should have its own harness usually comes up with the hid kit... hid positive and negative line should be connected directly to the battery. no alteration, or jumpers should be done... it adds resistance to the wire causing to power drop... secure the hid relay loose relay terminal will result to amphere shortage... MAKE SURE YOU CONNECT YOUR HID POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE LINE TO THE BATTERY TERMINAL... AND NO LINE SHARING... good day!

I want to place HID lights in my 2006 R6. Would


Generally the ballast is a separate box that is external to the headlight unit. HIDs4U does slim fit kits especially for motorcycles.
You may have to modify the bulb holder to get the cables through to the new HID bulb.

Won't start


If the engine will not even crank have the battery load tested, if the battery is fine it could be the ignition switch or the starter button. Also make sure all of your grounds are tight and clean.
