    Default M 90 headlight

    I am not impressed with the brightness of my headlight. Does anyone have an easy fix for this. I do not want to get into rewiring or anything like that. If you have a link to a brighter bulb switch over it would be greatly appreciated.

    Here goes my two cents.... At my first attempt to upgrade my headlight bulb I bought an H4 Philips X-Treme Vision bulb. Like you, I wanted to avoid cutting/splicing, basically anything that would make me modify my virgin OEM wiring. I currently live in Europe and the laws are very strict. IF I would have gone with an HID or high power LED, I will most-likely fail the annual safety inspections.
    So I am here to recommend to you NOT to buy an Xtreme Vision bulb. I went from a 6 year old OEM General Electrics H4 bulb to the Philips and my results are "Xtreme"-ly disappointing. I can barely notice the difference while riding at night. The high beams are slightly better than stock. I only paid €12 euro at the store for one. Look at the pics below and see for yourself what I am talking about. Top is before and bottom after.

    YOu can also try Sylvania Silverstar line.
    I just plan on doing everything twice when I start it and that way when it takes 3 times to get it right I'm only half as mad.

    Just saw this on the 109 side. Might be the best choice.

    as per " some 9 " on the 109 threads :
    Just purchased a set of theses led headlights and I got to tell ya I'm very impress with it, plus its such an easy install. Will be getting these from now on. I ordered the H4 LED's off ebay and will post up my thoughts once installed.

    Light is borderline acceptable. I need a dark road to really get a feel for them without other light pollution. Color is great though

    They matched my 6k hid in color and cutoff. Led build kept coming loose due to a check ball that indexes the bulb due to using my dust cover. Hid fits snug. I used mount less ballast opt7 bullets
