Headlight type?

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to research what type of bulb I need (headlight conversion)... According to the manual I have a H11 Headlight..


I'd like a bit of advice on headlight bulbs because I want to get a brighter pair of bulbs.


With an Aprilia RS 125, am I limited to a H11 bulb? Or can I choose whatever? And would you recommend HID?


So basically I'm wanting some help with what bright headlights there are for my rs 125.


Cheers.


p.s. forgot to mention it's a 2007 model.

The night breakers are a good buy, the link Stu's put is a good deal. l think you need H1 and H3 lamps for your bike. Stick to stock wattage higher wattage lamps are 1 illegal and 2 could cause a melt down of your light fitting and electric's. HID lamps require a type specific light fitting to comply and work properly. Hope this helps.

Stu's post is the one that reminded me! Thanks for the info, but here is a link to a repair manual ( http://www.carlsalter.com/pdfs/Aprilia_ ... l_2006.pdf ) . Go to page 7 - 4 and it says

Low beam light (halogen): 12 V - 55 W H11

High beam light (halogen): 12 V - 55 W H11

Hi ya that will be these then Mate.

I will say before you go out spending check the voltage at the headlight connections and see what voltage is there with the headlight switch on and motor running. I've been made aware that you can get a considerable volt drop at the headlight due to poor, undersize wiring and switch gear, so check this out first, keep us posted.
