    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.
