So my old bulbs werent very good so I had a look online and found out my bike takes H4 bulbs... So I bought some Philips x-treme vision +100% bulbs... So they arrived this morning and I took out my old bulb and its different? Can somebody shed some light onto wtf just happened :P Its a 2001 Bandit 600 S (S is important because it has a different headlight. The actual bulb glass bit of them look the same but everything else looks different :/

I'm now in a really bad mood... according to every seller on ebay the bandit 600 s 00-03 is a H4 bulb which is what I bought. Having taken them out it turns out I need a HB4 (9006) and a HB3 (9005).. f**k sake. :evil:

Aye. I can confirm, the manual states it takes HB3 for high beam and HB4 for low... Whatever that means

oh dear. Silly boy, atleast you have found some now!

 

I'm not the only silly one... every single seller on ebay claim that H4's will fit :?

 

That first one looks like an old gas lamp. :lol:

 

I can assure you that a old gas lamp would have probably have been brighter...
