    I know the 2006 Daytona takes a H7 dipped and a H9 full beam bulbs.

    Since buying my bike I think it still has the original bulbs and figured its time to update them, not going the HID conversation route but can anyone recommend good bulbs that will just go in (ideally match the color they emit). I have used the Phillips 130% ones which where awesome on my previous bike the Fireblade.

    Either white light or blue would do, I have already ordered some LED lights to replace the side lights.

    Hid for the dipped only really is awesome and so easy to do. I wouldn't consider anything else.

    And there's a few links as well in that thread.
    All you need is to choose a HID kit on eBay (car kit-so you get twice as much as you need) e.g. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/35W-55W-B...hash=item3d2637e239:m:mzB05udxCfPdX5L1hBGOaFw (I think I might be tempted to try the

    although I went with the 6000K and was happy)

    a 25mm drill e.g. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FLAT-BIT-...hash=item51c9d6c973:m:mKrlw6D-4lD9u3TahXM8ROA
    (The kit comes with a rubber cover to seal this hole)
    The kit is completely plug & play, unplug your bulb & plug in the kit and store the ballast under the infill panel.
    Good luck!

    Thanks @Stu675 sorry had a busy weekend with the wife and kids as where busy packing to move house so just seen this.

    Moving in two weeks and get a garage so this will be a nice project.

    Forgive the silly question would these lights pass the MOT?

    Always did for me. Just a question of the beam pattern and height. And with the projectors you get a good sharp cutoff and easy to adjust the height if required.
    I must add that was with a fairly anal MOT tester who gave me an advisory for Watsen indicators (the best in the world) and LED sidelights ffs!

    GLW the move!
