Got my headlights this afternoon, NAPA #H6024BL, britelite halogen, $30.00 each, they had cheaper ones at $19.00 each, we'll see how they work and hope that I have more candle power now. Maybe I wont have two little candles anymore. I will be installing them tomorrow.

Let us know if they seem brighter than your originals...

I could use some for the Demon.

Just went for the first night ride with the new headlights and am glad to say that they work a lot better than the old ones. I am pretty sure that the old ones were the originals, so that would have made them at least 39 years old and maybe 40.

Jean-Guy, you should use Relays to power your headlamps directly from the battery.

Why won't the old switch handle the demand?

No too much voltage drop. And will lower load on your wiring harness.

Thanks for the head light update JG.

I've heard that the relay works well too. It saves voltage drop through the head
light switch.
