Hi chaps (and chapesses) The original 55w headlamp bulb on my '93 Trident 900 was as bright as a Toc H lamp, so one of the first things I did when I bought the bike (in 2005 from a mate) was change the bulb to halogen and this meant I could actually drive at slightly more than 20mph at night…
Anyway, I’m now seeing more powerful LED replacements, my son showed me one for his Yamaha XSR 700, standard H4 fitting but they look a bit bulky at the back end. There’s no electrical reason for not using an LED but I just wonder has anyone else tried fitting one to an older bike?
(I also changed the Triumph standard battery which was pretty pathetic for bike this size, especially on a cold day. Bought a Sealed AGM 12v14Ah SVR 15L from Tayna - never misses.)
I’ve put the uprated xenon lights on my SV, makes a nice difference.
put the same ones in my old fazer FZS600, made little difference because it was the reflectors that dont work well. you can put the brightest bulbs in you want, but if the reflectors behind dont point the light in the correct direction its useless.
