Headlight Relay Switch/Box location & headlight won't turn on 2002 ZX6r

Hello everyone! So I'm trying to replace the Headlight Relay Switch/Box. I have a 2002 Zx6r so i'm trying to figure out where it's located and also if anyone knows where I can purchase one. My headlight won't turn on but the fuses are fine, so i'm thinking it could possibly be the relay.

I forgot to include that the bulbs are fine, I was experimenting with hid projectors and plugged the positive and negative wire to the 3 pin plug that connects to the bulb. I flipped it to the high beam and it turned the headlights off and it won't power on anymore.

is it possible that you fried a ballast?

if you put the stock bulbs back in do they work? If they do... probably a ballast issue with the HID's.

Oh no the hid's work. It's just that even the stock headlights won't power on. I haven't installed the hid's on fully yet.

Since I have a separate headlight assembly kit that I need to replace the stock headlight assembly with, I have hid projectors installed and sealed in the new headlight assembly kit.

Would I be able to run these headlights through a separate power? Like if I had an amp or something and would connect the positive and negative wires from the projectors to the amp and connect the amp to the battery?? Would that work?

And if so how would I do so? Any links that you know of that would help me out with that?

would i be able to connect my hid projectors wires to one of these relay kits with a switch:Motorcycle H4 Relay Kits, cheap Worldwide Shipping and connect the wiring from the relay kit straight to the battery terminals?

I actually purchased the non h4 relay kit recommended by easternbeaver when I emailed them:Motorcycle Non-H4 Relay Kits, cheap Worldwide Shipping

And I was going to purchase this on/off switch 5A: Switches for Motorcycle Electrics, cheap worldwide shipping.

So I was thinking of connecting the + & - wires from the hid projectors with ballasts, to this relay kit and adding the on/off switch as well into these wires, to cut off power supply while I connect the relay kit to the battery terminal. Do u think this would be a good idea?

I recently had a similar problem with my 02. The low beams worked fine but when you switched to the hi's they would just shut off. Each setting (hi and low) has its own relay they are both hanging on the back of the instrument panel in a little rubber sleeve.
