They are H4 bulbs. Some have gone to LED units which are a very "white" light color. Folks over on the ADVrider forum have had good luck with a wire mesh heat sink type rather than a fan type of LED headlight bulb. Best of luck!

Hi there adventure boy.

I have changed my headlight bulbs to LED see this thread

LED Lighting Experiment

I am really pleased with the result. A pig to fit but crisp, clear white light.

Hey Adventure Boy

I install Osram Silverstar 2.0 bulbs H4's-MUCH brighter than OEM not expensive, throws a longer beam and has longer life(if you believe the advertisments :016:)

Very white no additional wiring/ballast needed. Stay away from the Blue lights-my research found that they do not throw as long a beam. FWIW

Ride safe(and fast) :018:
