*The wiring harness is the same for a 1 or 2 bulb system, so there's some extra wiring to tidy up.

*the sales guy didn't know his product. He thought it could be installed a la plug and play w/o wiring a lead and a ground. Wrong. Telephone tech guy answered quickly when I called to resolve the apparently conflicting info.

*All in all a very easy install. Simple, unique connectors with no way to install incorrectly.

*It's bright. WAY brighter than stock. Well worth $45.

I haven't run it for long to make sure there are no overheating issues. I will do that Friday.
OK, last post on this subject...

I had a chance to use the DDM Tuning HID light this past weekend. I put about 300 miles on the bike, mostly in the mountains on jeep roads, but also a transit of about 70 miles. No problems with the HID system. I also compared the brightness to two other 525s, with stock lights, and the DDM system is MUCH brighter.
