Suspect HID install
Did an HID (Fashtek) install today and the result is not so spectacular. First of all, the unit I received from Fashtek only had half a grommet. It was sliced in half with the 2 wires going through the remaining half; pretty useless. I bench tested it and it seemed to work (the bulb lit up). After doing some rewiring of my Motolights to slave them to always turn on and getting everything back together, the bike wouldn't start...DOH! Had the CD player on all day! Charged up the battery enough to start the bike, but the HID is not performing very well at all, even with the bike running. After first turning it on it seems to light ok, but then only gets dimmer; never even close to the brightness of the original bulb. SOmetimes it lights, hen when I start the bike it doesn't re-light at all. Is this just my battery being too low or a defective unit?
