Xenon lights

I just got my HID upgrade package from Xenon Depot today. (Then I had to download the 2 page instructions since they weren't in the box)

I'm looking for any hints from others that have done the upgrade on an 06 GT.

Where did you stash the ballast? Did you hook the control leads or the power leads to the original bulb connection?

Any other problems to avoid? I've heard about reprogramming the CANbus to eliminate the fault.

I put my ballast on the shelf forward of the anti skid module in the l/h fairing. I hooked it up to the stock wiring. I also had the dealer select the option for the HID. It fixed the problem of the canbus faulting and shutting down the headlight. That lasted about aweek and now it faults and shuts down again. Been to busy to investigate. I just shut the bike off with the key and turn the key back on imediately, The headlight comes back on. I let it warm up for 2 seconds and start the bike and all seems good. Its definely the start up that faults the canbus. Good luck and keep us posted with your results
