So my headlight's low beam crapped out already. So much for aftermarket parts from Japan. It uses a weird MICHIBA H4 12V 35/35W 1204 bulb. Now, I can easily find 65/55w H4s, but I am worried, would this burn to hot or blow a fuse or could I use a 65/55w with no issues?



Thanks - Bart

Usually you'll only find 35/35 in stock at motorcycle dealers. Fortunately they're a rare exception in that they're cheaper than automotive counterparts.



Around 15 bucks at Yamaha.



Your late model's charging system will support a 55/55, but you may get excess heat buildup in that small housing. If it has either a plastic reflector, plastic lens or plastic housing I'd limit it at 35/35. Plastic parts tend to melt with high wattage bulbs and clear plastic lenses will go yellow on you even if they don't outright melt.

Pretty sure the 01-up come with a 55w bulb. Piaa makes good bulbs "expensive" or you could do a HID light
