If you want halogen I have had great success with Phillips Extreme Vision bulbs.

If LED, see Tom’s thread in this forum. I dropped in some really nice LEDs and it freed up to 60 watts of power.

Did the LED conversion. Got all of it inside the housing. Not a single modification needed. With the headlight off the bike, I rotated the bulb 360 deg to find out what position gave the cleanest cutoff and best focused light. Once this was done, everything was stuffed into the housing and closed up. Been working great for about a year now. Nice clean cut off. Set so it doesnít blind drivers in front of me. I used several vehicles trunks as guides.

Well, that's great. I left the driver out of the housing fearing it would overheat the interior of the headlight. But I see you were brave and got all inside the housing and had no problems ever since. That's good news.
