Can someone PM me the URL to the HoW directions on the high beam HID mod?

|sanjaun2||The first hid I bought for my GT was a really expensive unit from europe. That hid would trip the canbus everytime and would not work. I went back and forth with the company and tried about four different things including a custom wiring harness. I could never get it to work. I ended up buying one of the cheap $75 kits readily available online and it works 90% of the time. During that 10% I just restart the bike and the light comes on and the fault goes away.Once it is on it never faults. Most people do not have this problem, I must have a very sensitive canbus on my bike. I even had the dealership reprogram my bike for having the hid option and it still faults about 10% of the time. Minor incovienance for such a huge benefit.|

Thanks for the thoughts, so I think that I will go with the HID upgrade, sounds like the best for overall longevity.
Are there any repercussions using the HID system with the Canbus, because the Canbus seems to override the slightest glitch? For example I had my horn cut out when I was off/on it for a while as I passed the Bunny Ranch in Nevada.

I'm interested in doing this too, what is the latest on where to buy the stuff? Would love to go factory, but sounds pretty pretty darn pricey. Is the factory headlight (such as lense and reflector) really different on a Xenon vs a halogen headlight?
If there is a difference, is it really noticeable having everything factory? In other words has anyone here gone from a GT with non-factory xenon to a bike with factory xenon,or otherwise been able to compare the two?

The HoW is just awesome.
Changed to a HID straight forward and easy with Grif's direction.
Helped me find the OEM horn, for the wires changing to air horns, should have taken pictures, everything fits on the left side with a little juggling and tiewraps. Yes, the Stebel would have been easier but sounding like a Semi get everyone back in the lane.
Do change to the HID, well worth it and very easy.

I replaced one low beam around 19,000 miles.
