12 Anniversary. Can anyone recommend a bright white bulb replacement or tell me if my bike is an H4, H1, etc…??? Would just a cleaner brighter bulb than OEM, but don’t want to modify anything. Thanks

I replaced my stock bulbs on the F with PIAA bulbs. I’m used to PIAA from car bulbs so have been quite happy with them. Don’t go too blue though.

I always liked the PIAA intense white and was going to use those on mine until I decided to just go with the LED.

D & DX type lights take H4s

Fast, ******, down-forcy lights take H9 & H11. I think it’s in the Owner’s Manual but mine’s outside in a saddlebag and I don’t feel like putting shoes on to go get it.

Edit: Several “grades” of bulbs available at your friendly local auto parts store. Pick yer poison.

Watch out for some after market bulbs, some generate so much heat that the wires and connectors become brittle and break. Every 10000 miles or so I had to install new sockets until I put in the DDM upgrade.

I looked in my manual & couldn’t find the info. What is DDM?

For the VRSCF and 2012 10th anniversary edition the high beam is P/N: +61404532026 = H9 = 65.3 W and the low beam is P/N: +61404532026 = H11 = 55 W.

True True…..aftermarket bulbs that look nice cause problems……DDM is the best way to get more light….(its cheaper in the long run)…

35w, 6000k. Can’t remember the type. H11 I think…

got the kit too….same bulb as I remember, H11. I wrote to them and told them what I had. They told me what to order. It was the same HID bulb for both hi and low.

Those over the counter Whites melted my couplers and wires, not the bucket.

Don’t they have LED bulbs that fit into the OEM socket? Are they brighter? I know LEDs run at cooler temps.

Just looked on eBay. Guess they’re only for tail lights and not headlights.

Just search H11 or H9 LED on google and you have a lot of options
