I did not use a relay on my HID installation, nor was there one in the HID driving light kit I installed, which was two HID ballasts/bulbs. Rode over 75,000 miles with the HID low beam, 50,000 miles with the driving lights, no issues at all.
I would just dump the relay to get rid of one more failure mode.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

No bike now, but maybe in the future.
