Well the easiest way is to go with the HD LED setup... but it's pricey... Have you looked at those?

get some good all weather H4 bulbs. You can get 100w "corvette melters" if you want. Just go down to the auto parts store and check out what they have.

Well you can do DDM HIDs but in order to do the spot lamps, you have to replace them with adjure. The HID bulb won't fit in the stock HD lenses. I can provide pics as proof.

The HIDs (3 ballasts) with hi/lo function on the headlight, is about $80. Then another $100 for new lenses as said above.

Those are fine and all. But for that price you could go HID and those PIAA's won't hold a candle to an HID. Period! From the link click additional info. But a 55w hid bulb (what you would use in your headlight) will do 5000 lumens vs a halogen at 900-1200 lumens

If you want more info on HID I can provide more info and links.

but as I said you have to replace with the Adjure spots.

If you want to know more. I documented the mod. Now please understand I over engineered the setup. You could go for the direct plug in. At the time I was doing lots of short riding with many starts. Riding for work.

I have been running HIDs on my bike for years now. They are amazing and were unparreled until recently with the LED technology. However my HIDs are still brighter. They are also one of the greatest mods I've done. Seeing at night is where it is!!!

If you don't do the timers as I did, you can just plug n play the HIDs.
