Apexcone Raptor HID Kit (35w or 55w)

Just ran across this online. Regularly 39.95, now 29.95. It appears that this will do the fog light mod.

This kit uses a slim ballast(box) but adds another small box(igniter) in the line to the bulb.

Whippersnapper - Sorry my technical skills are very limited...so use the slim ballast for both the headlights and fogs or a different combination? what do you recommend?
Thanks!

Each bulb needs a ballast and an igniter. The Raptor kit contains one ballast and igniter in the one larger box. The slim kit has the igniter in its own little box. If you were to do both fogs and head lights you would have four ballasts and four igniters for the slim kit and just four ballasts for the Raptor kit. I personally use the DDM slim kit on my quad and it has worked flawlessly for a year and a half.

I have all four lights with the DDM Slims. Had lots of trouble with the grounding wires. Other than that. Good to go
