As long as they are not R3-400 less as good as the competitors......
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

I replaced the standard 60/55W with a 100/90W 6500k H4 bulb - makes a helluva difference!
Unless you're going to be doing a lot of night dirt/trail riding, I don't think the cost of HID is worth it.

perhaps give the H4 Osram Nightbreaker a shot before spending huge moolah?
some say the Silverstars are even better (longer lasting and brighter).
