1offmotorsports hid kits

1offmotorsports offers a kit for bmw motorcycles that plugs into the lights wiring, no cutting or splicing of wires. Seems a little more expensive than other kits, but if you plug and play it may be worth the cost. Has anyone tried this kit?

Whats up guys, noob here and wanted to throw in my 2cents

My friend bought a DDM kit for his Yamaha R1 and has had a nothing but problems with it.
DDM has been a pain to work with from what he tells me, getting an actual working kit from them took 2 tries, and almost 3 months of his time. Been wanting to upgrade the lights on my K 1200 that is why l was also looking around, seems like 1offmotorsports is actually carried by some BMW dealers in Southern California, look more reputable

Plus it looks like that DDM kit is only a single bulb and ballast for 70 bucks

That's for the HI LOW set up in the link above, look https://www.ddmtuning.com/index.php?...parent=61&pg=1 for the dual ballast for low beams and single for high at 35 or 55 watts. I have been thinking about this set up myself. Interested to know if it is plug and play. Can get all you need for a all 3 bulbs for about $115 bucks. Can't imagine it would not be, an input form the existing bulb power plug, an output for the new HID bulb ... but I see more wires and am not sure what they would be for.

The 1offmotorsports does look very similar in the photos, may be the same thing just more expensive. If your friend had problems with the DDM, not sure it would be much different except you pay more.

I used the ddmtuning kit, nice small ballast, for my K12R. It's an H7 low beam. It was just plug and play, works great. The biggest challenge was to find a spot to put the ballast with no fairing to hide behind. I left the high beam as halogen, on /off quicker. If I did alot of night time country cruisin, I'd switch that one too.

I used DDM on my LT and they worked great. The hi beam took so modification but it was due to the BMW design of the hi beam bulb mount. Did hi and lo beams for less than $100.
