Any problems with heat??? I heard that HIDs get quite hot when they are on (which would be all the time, on a sled). Also, how much current do they draw??

I hear ya...i should have said 500bucks Canadian....so like 350-400 USD I would guess. It takes up to 20A to start the bulb, then 3.2 amps to run. THey run at 35Watts, and headlights are 55/65Watts, so they actually do not get nay hotter then a halogen.

Those lights are so bright.. Id be afraid that if i got my sled up to 88 miles per hour the flux capacitor may kick in and ill be sent back to 1885.. And then bust a fuel line..

I love those HiD xenon lights, once you ride with them you cant go without them.. On one of my set up I did 6K and 8K reason why is that 6K cut through the storm and fog. 8K put a color to the path :)

What do you mean when you hit 88 mph the lights wont work ?
