H7 Replacement Bulbs

I am riding around with a pop-eye.

John or Ho, do you guys sell replacement bulbs for an '03 DII? I didn't see any on the site.

If not, does anyone have any suggestions on replacements? I read Osram Silverstar were a good replacement.

Thanks,

Hill

no H7s.

I've heard good things about Silverstar, but I can't stand the blue tint.

Thanks for the reply.

From what I read about the +50's that I will order is that they don't have the blue tint....hope not anyway.

Hill, I had a headlight out the last time I was in the dealership for service and they replaced all the headlight bulbs with what they called the "new long-life" bulbs. They said the original bulbs were determined by the factory to be very, very short-lived and that a technical service bulletin went out on changing the originals with the new long-life bulbs. So they popped them in no charge, and yes I am still under warranty.

The net is, the lights are brighter and whiter than before so I'm satisfied.

Better get that popeye fixed soon, you know what they say about provoking gang attacks...

I ended up going with Hella bulbs. They seem brighter and there is no blue tint.

Now the question is how long will they last?
