My HID ballast doesnt like to be switched back and forth from low beam to high beam and back to low again, I have to shut the engine off and restart it to have the low beams restart again, anybody have a solution?

Two solutions:

1) Learn to flip the low->high beam with less delay ... there is a dead spot in the middle. The slower you rock the switch the higher the chance you will cause the light to go out.

2) If the light does go out, just tap the starter switch it will reignite the ballast. When you are stopped and pushing the starter switch, the lights shut-off and the starter engages. When you are moving and tap the starter switch, the lights will be reignite but the starter does not engage.

just be sure you aren't squeezing the left brake when hitting the starter switch??

It has to be a complete stop before the starter kicks in with the switch.
