Anybody tried to install 2 xenon lights in Katana? I just bought a pair of projectors so now I somehow need to connect 2 ballasts with 2 xenon lights onto the left connector (where the short light originally is) and my concern is that it could burn the switch or something. Has anybody done something like that?
(hope you can understand me, English is not my native language)

You should connect one ballast and light to the left headlight connector and one ballast and light to the right headlight connector.

I did some measurements and I guess that there is no chance original switch will live through 2 balasts. my final solution will be that one xenon balast will be connected to the regular left side ant for the other i'll have to install one more switch. balast no.2 will be connected directly to the battery

Those tinted xenon bulbs are junk, they give less light. What you need is a set of
relays to deliver higher voltage to the bulbs.
I did this, got a few extra volts more, and with the clear 80/100w bulb, my
1100 has incredible light.
So, why bother with HID?
Cost of bulb and relays was under $20 too .

I put a 80/100 bulb and wire harness on my 1100 about 19 years ago. No problems at all.
