Did the headlight mod and used the 35/35 bulbs.
Check the Comagination.com site and you will find the correct spade connectors for the H4 bulbs.
The tabs on the H4 bulbs are an odd size but the spades that Comagination sell are made specifically for the H4 tabs.

Did the dual headlight conversion using 35w bulbs today. Real happy with it. Only pain was I didn't have female spade connectors as wide as the plug on the bulbs, so had to modify some. Other than that they should still be bright enough for the little night riding I'll do. I used blue tinted bulbs too which I've always liked.



ive used, and use the blue tint bulbs too
but what I found at 35watt they dont project out as far
so using the 60watt blue tint will throw out the light as far as 35watt clear

but of course on the zuma that will just drain the battery
One of my bikes has only 1 bulb that came 35watt high and low clear bulb
so I put in the blue tint 55-60 throws out enough light, nice white color and wont drain the battery

Just fired it up in the dark, even with street ligths partially drowning them out they're plenty bright enough. I've had the blue bulbs before, biigest thing about then that sucks is can't see the stripes on the road when it's wet outside. No problem since this thing will never see the rain.

Blue bulbs are complete junk, plain and simple. They filter out the most useful spectrum of light from the bulbs and accentuate the spectrum that the human eye has the most trouble with. I get the concept of wanting what appears to be white light, but the blue shifted halogen bulbs are simply reducing the overall output of useful visible light on the road for you, while simultaneously increasing glare for everyone else. Truly a lose/lose situation if there ever was one. Here are a couple links with more info than I care to type out right now, from one of the most respected lighting consultants in the automotive world:

http://www.danielsternlighting.com/tech ... d/bad.html

http://www.danielsternlighting.com/tech ... /good.html

Good quality non-filtered bulbs from recognized manufacturers is the best way to go for your safety and the safety of others on the road. Even if you never plan to ride at night or in the rain/fog, these things have a way of happening if you ride your scooter on a regular basis.

Well, I would have to agree with that vw bus guy, I do like the idea of having both headlights lit during the day for conspicuity purposes.

If anyone has actually done that modification using the stock headlights but perhaps changing out the bulbs so that the light coming out of each headlight is the same, I sure would like to hear about it.

just convert the halogens to LED? (or HID if you prefer) that's what i did.. quick, easy and effective. cnt ever go back to halogens now

if i remember correctly i got this set of H4 led bulbs about two years ago https://www.xenonpro.com/h4-9003-hb2-du ... lights-kit (125; 2012) there's also a bunch of these on amazon or ebay
