06 kfx 400 hid install.

Super bright. Easy to install. You will need a soldering gun and solder.

First. Disconnect the red wire from the battery and move it aside.

Cut your harness off the quad. Start with either the yellow or white. Cut one, move it out of the way. Cut the other and move it out of the way. Then cut the black. Next you will have to cut the insulator back 2 or 3 inches. Looks like a rubber sleeve over the wires. Then strip about a half inch on each wire.

The yellow is the highbeam. White is the lowbeam and black is ground. Solder each end.

Now your ready to give the ballasts power.
Cut the ends off that do not go to the lights. You will have 2 red wires and 2 black wires. Strip back the 4 wires and solder each end. When soldering you will want to solder the 2 blacks together.

Now go to your toy with your soldering gun. Slip shrink tube onto all of your wires and solder all your wires. Install the light first. This will make it easier to work with.

Many people use different locations to mount the ballasts. It's really up to you where.

Now plug in your connections and turn the key on.
Holy grail of light

Thanks for the instruction! I believe the installation should be pretty much the same if I go LED route, right?
I thought of doing HIDs first, but the LEDs last longer and withstand vibration, moisture, and stuff.
By the way, I've got a 2008 model, so the installation should really be the same.

Yes sir. They are the same. I might switch to led but that's after these go out
