Followed all direction and then double tripled checked only thing i left was the connector to the ais i tucked it under the rubber covering out of the way didnt break or pinch anything i believe. But doubt the ais connects to my headlight. I also rewired the actual hid ballast in case i pinched one of those. And ordered another kit because this one is about 2.5 years old

Your right my main concern was getting the bike running again couldnt miss formation. I ran out of 15a fuses it only comes with 2 i will be picking some up today and then ill remove the hid ballast plug in my oem bulbs and put in a 15a fuse if it doesnt blow then its the hid kit if it blows then ill take everything i touched apart and redo my steps.

Unlikely. The wiring install is pretty straightforward KDS connector to KDS connector on Type 13a harness, extension to ECU pin and back to Type 13a harness. He has sucessfully flashed his ECU so if something was stuffed up in the install he wouldn't have been able to flash the ECU or encountered issues.

I think there is something that got pinched during the block off install and is grounding out or else he has a problem with the ballasts either too high of wattage say 55W vs 35W or a problem internally with one of them especially if it is a lower quality kit. I asked him to disconnect the HID ballasts and see what happens. *Shrug*
Both ballast are unplugged as you told me to until i can get the 15a fuses i believe the ballast are 55w not sure all the writing on them are faded.

I can understand you wanted to get it running but believe me 30A fuses will start cooking wires!for it to blow 2x15A something is wrong!100% you have crushed wires or connected a wire incorrectly!leave your battery disconnected and find the issue otherwise you will have a problem that could get out of control!you wouldn't believe the domino effect once 1 wire starts to melt!bike!garage!house you get me

w

Have the bike apart down to the block off plates no crushed wires found the connector to ais is unharmed and is tucked in the same place the ais so i know theres room

Thought i installed a phone holder with a charger all it is.is a power wire and ground attached to the battery nothing else. Also the place i put the one wire connector that goes into the u harness could that be i just double check if its the right i even pulled out the clear pin block to install it...other then that it has to be my grounding out

Tapped up the connector just in case and this what the low beam ballast looks like
Bottom insulation but individual wires are in good shape.

Ok so im thinking the high beam side grounded because it was tucked inside where the metal housing for the headlight was and i didnt wrap the connectors in electrical tape..but not sire because its been like that since day one. Put oem bulbs in swapped fuse just putting take and intake together before turning on to test. This is the housing and the connectors. Now the connector i put inside the bike headlight connector but didnt wrap them.

When did you fit the headlight ballast and wiring!now if it wasn't at the same day and your headlights have been working fine up until fitting the rest of the gear it would be very unlikely that something to do with h/l like ballast shit itself!not impossible but can happen!look at the wiring diagram for the fuse that's blowing and see what it feeds!you will find your fault going in that direction if you have triple checked your work and 100% sure it's 100% good
