Headlight Issues

I installed an HID kit on my headlights some time ago and recently two days in a row I keep blowing the fuse for it. any suggestions where I can start to fix this?

It all depends on how it blow's, right after you turn ignition on? Or after few minutes of being on? Need more details to diagnose

Headlight

couple days ago I rode it all day no issues. then went to start it again and headlights didn't come on and it was blown. the next day rode it again with no issues after replacing the fuse, and right when I was about to park it for the night the fuse blew and that was it.

I'd start fixing it by putting the OEM headlights back in... Problem solved

Post a picture of the blown fuse, you probably need to replace the ballast (s)

If I switch to LED lights, would that change anything?
