I bought the headlight and passing lights on ebay for $330 and they were the truck lite. I like them.

The truck lites are nice. Cike has the 3 bulb set and i was very impressed.

On my new bike i have the 3 day maker lights and i like them a lot too but they cost way more than the truck lites.

Re:Headlight Info 1 Year ago  
I hope I'm not out of line posting this here but, here goes. In the last two years I've had to replace my headlight bulb four times. Could there be a particular problem causing this continual sort term bulb life ?

Re:Headlight Info 1 Year ago  
Horse, most common reason might be an overactive charging system, but in our case, it may be more due to vibration. Does yours shake any more than the usual?

Try a volt meter on your battery at, say, 2,500 rpm. Voltage should be no more than, Oh, 14.5 volts, or so.

Others?

Re:Headlight Info 1 Year ago  
Who knows how much shake is more or less than normal ? I will check the voltage output but the only problem is my lowbeam going out, highbeam is fine. I know that does not get used much ,so it's really not effected. I do run an '05 Spec Wound Stator in my '01 RS.

Re:Headlight Info 1 Year ago  
What kind of bulb are you using? Stock halogen type or something else?

Re:Headlight Info 1 Year ago  
I don't remember the brand of this last one . Super Bright or some such thing.
. It is Halogen , 100w/80w H4 P143. It lasted almost 3 months . I only lose low beam but it happens over and over .
