It wound up that I had a couple of loose pins in the 9 pin connector in the headlight so even my normal light was blinking on and off. I then got frusain trated that most of the wiring was to short. I will install again this winter while I have time to spare. I really hate doing anything during riding weather.what seems to be the problem with your installation? did you try to kit while it is layed out on the floor before you installed it? make sure it works before you go through the trouble of installing it....also, on some of the wire harness that they send, you need to ground the ground wire on the 2nd lead even though you are not using it, otherwise, it wont light up.
It Varies by Vendor - two yrs seems average.whats the life expectancy for an HID bulb??
