The throw and lighting has improved drasticly. there is a big difference. i would suggest you all go for it. but there is a small problem. when you fit a H4 bulb wich you have to do with this beam you cannot use the H4 connector because that touches the Speedo meter. so instead you have to make the connections by THIMBLES and bend the connectors of the Bulb.

I am very satisfied. my main purpose of moving to the H4 dome was to put an HID which i think i dont need now.

earlier I have used 90/100 halogen on minda headlights but there was no throw in terms of the lightening... I used to find it hard to ride during the night.

but after the said modifications i have a strees free view in low beam itself.

iam using the lumax head light with 55/65 bulb from osram (as philips was not available ).

Had to struggle to get it fixed with the mechanic... but worth the effort in my case

I have 2004 Thunderbird. Stock battery is 12V 5 Amp. The stock headlight is 35W. My understanding is with this setup, upgrading to 55/60 W bulb is only going to get degraded results.
What are my options to fit a 60W bulb and extract full potential out of it?

Try it with a good bulb and you will not like your Understanding.

Noobish question - So after reading through this and a couple other threads, I thought of upgrading to the Philips H4 for my LB500 at Reliance Autozone (it's closer). However, the chap there said that because of the higher wattage than stock (40/45), the cutouts need to be changed too. I didn't read about a cutout change in any thread. Am I missing something or is it *that* obvious?

You are just not missing at all let me tell you what i did once again.

My Bulb works off the alternator. (it goes dim when i am not accelerating)
Step 1:
I bought a HELLA (Duplicate) Dome for Ambasador
Step 2
I had a Phillips bulb that i took out of my Tool Kit.
Step 3
I fitted the DOme in the crome ring thing of the head lite.
Step 4.
I did not use the H4 Holder for the bulb as it would not fit with the Speedo meter.
Step 5.
I fitted the three wires care fully.
Step 6.
I was wrong and i did it again and now i was rite.
Step 7.
i Went out at night and i was Surprised.

Thanks
Amber

I did get what you'd done, no doubts on that. My only question was if any cutout job was required (in general, not specific to OT).

Thanks!

i am sure i did not mention any cutouts hehehe.

i dont know its been working fine for me. if any one wants to get perfection then yes you may try all you can. but from the alternator i did not need the RELAY. but ys if you want to go the battery path then do use the relay.

Why would someone want a headlight that blips depending upon the throttle? Why not have a constant spread. Bulbs will fuse easier in this setup. And when you go WOT see your fuses burning themselves at the altar of common electrical sense.

@ash: Use a relay. The circuits are simple to understand and implement. Think of a relay as a separate switch that keeps the primary electrical circuit happy. If you need more understanding open a new thread. Why relays in electrical circuits. This thread is specific to bullets.

thanks, I'll try and figure that out! looks like I have to do some digging around, I thought I could just plonk in a higher wattage bulb and move on with life
