The regular B20/D type 35/35W headlight bulb has always been satisfactory to me, both in lighting performance and durability.
However, its socket seems to be weak in solidly making contact with the bulb terminals. The 2 finger-style contacts at the base of the bulb just do not apply enough force for a good or even contact.
I am thinking of replacing the bulb and socket with one of these:
It has the same wattage, and I have had it in other motorcycles with good results.
The original socket, of course, would not be needed, and a regular H4 bulb socket would be spliced onto the original wires.
Has anyone had any issue doing this? Any interference issues under the headset, and is any mod required to the headlight hole for proper insertion?
