Retrofit projector headlights?

I'm curious... Has anybody retrofitted projector/HID headlights onto a 01-03 GSXR 600?

Installed HID's from a wrecked BMW Car.
I took some time getting the beams right but well worth the effort
The main thing is finding the room to install the transformers to run the HID's
If i can remember when i get home to night i will take some shots of it.

Thanks but I already have a "drop in" kit... I think HID(s) look like crap without projectors, to much glare.

Post pictures of your retrofit whenever you get time.

If anybody is interested, I have an H4 HID kit for sale. Two ballast, bulbs, etc...

OO i see ..my bike came with a Projetor factory in the lowbeam and normal in the highbeam.
I was able to mod my projector to fit the HID ezy and took some time to do my Highbeam.
The Pic you show of the projector's installed in that bucket is crazy, where did you find that pic at ?
Can they tell you how to do it?and what parts?

Mabey keep your kit and go to a bike wrecking yard and see if you could find some bucket's out of bikes with projectors in them and do a mod like the one you have that pic of ..i would just buy a spare bucket first to do it too..

Yea, he is from gsxr.com... I tried to contact him, he hasn't been active for a while. That projector is off a 350Z.

Take care.
