the wr put out ac voltage i suspect that hid needs a stable dc 12 volt supply unless they are designed to go on the ac supply

For 2005 model you should be okay, if you can't use the OEM headlight wiring to connect to the HID ballast, connect the ballast directly to the battery with a relay, that should work.

Huh???....As far as I know the electrical system in the WR is the same from 2003 - 2009. The oem headlight runs on AC and the DC circuit that charges the battery only puts out about 2 amps. It's woefully inadequate to supply an HID light. You need at a minimum to mod the stator and add a rectifer/regulator.

Baja Designs has a great tutorial. Or for $30, they will do it for you. You will also need to buy a regulator/rectifier.
