I'm interested in purchasing a kit for my 06 ZX6R and would like to see some pics of the different bulbs installed as well as some feedback on which kit and bulb would be the best route to go.

Thanks!

I'm about to go shopping for a new ballast.

Wanted - Slim digital ballast with monitoring and auto re-ignition. I had a link to one about a year ago but it was $300 at the time...

Its the link in my signature. Review of my kit from retro-solutions. I'm loving it. Standard ballast size, but I believe its the best aftermarket 55W kit with low 7.5 amp draw on striking, and a hot-restrike feature so the bulb isn't damaged. Todd also stated that he has a slim 55W ballast available, but with a higher 10 amp draw on start.
Todd at Retro-Solutions.com said:
See the ballast you have now, imagine that with a slightly smaller footprint all around, take 1/2" off each side at max, but only slightly thicker than 5/8". The ignitor is maybe 1-1/2"x1"x1"

Where did you get the kit from? And what did it run? It looks like a very nice kit but I could not find the Todd person you said to pm

Thanks
