    h4 bulb

    I nned to replace headlight bulb in 1150RS. Any recommendations for a better quality H4 bulb than stock? I don't want to go with HID or high wattage 100/60W bulb. Thanks for your input.

    People like the Osram Silverstars I think it's powerbulbs in the uk that sells them. 2 pack for 15 euros shipped.

    I bought some soon after I got my bike. No issues, but I try not ride at night. WAY too many deer where I live. It's rare NOT to see them at dusk when riding around in the cage.

    Unfortunately HID retrofit lights are not legal.

    What about PIAA X-Treme white halogen? Are they just overpriced, or are they an improvement?

    I had an 1150 RS and the lighting system is useless, and dangerous. If you don't want to go with a HID system, have a look at Eastern Beaver's wiring kits.

    Ostram Silverstar

    Excellent upgrade to the Halogen stock bulb - I use this for my high beam and am converting the low beam to HID, 'legal' or not.

    I also have a pair of Piaa driving lights for really dark roads. I do not like deer.
