Question HID lights

Has anyone put these on? Is it difficult to install?

Yes - I have the same (or similar) set on my bike.

You have to do the Flapper mod to make room.

Without that mod, it is a difficult install.
With the mod, it gets a lot easier.

You do not need to do the flapper mod to install, there is plenty of room for the ballast. What I would recommend are some H7 spacers (see below link) and the H7 to HID ballast connector. The spacers are a must as the bulbs will be loose without it and the grommets shown are designed to work with the '08+ bikes. The H7 adapter is optional as it will make for a much cleaner install and make it easy to revert back to Halogens if ever needed. Take a look at mine, almost looks stock!! My bike is an '07 just like yours.

I'll be at the Long Beach Motorcycle show tomorrow morning if you want to take a look at it in person.

Where did you place your ballasts then?

The left one fit under the upper left fairing and the right one is located under the front fairing mount. A little bit of VHB tape works wonders!!
