Prasad,

For projector lamps, you can contact Raj Thilak from Chennai. This chap does real good projector lamps usually housed inside the stock reflector. You have a PM.

Cheers,

Jay

While projectors are really bright, IMHO and based on my own night riding.

A decent Halogen bulb with a clean headlight lens is more than adequate. A good scratch free visor will make it even better.

The bright light from the projector setup ends up blinding everyone on the opposite side.

Hello sir, how much will a halogen bulb cost for a Honda Dio? The stock ones are pretty weak, so need to change them

isn't it is the case with the HID bulbs without projectors..? and thats why non-projector HIDs are considered illegal AFAIK.

Like BBlost says, projector lamps will actually increase dazzle unless controlled extremely well, like in the case of high end cars.

Cheers,

Jay

Check out the nearest Bosch shop.
The Halogen for my bike costs between Rs 50 and 75.
Dio should not cost more than that.

But do take your old bulb along. There are a couple of different shapes and sizes available.

This is going OT in this thread. Take discussion to https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/motor...lamp-bike.html for more on this.

Thanks.

Prasad,

Doing angel eyes on the Bullet is difficult. But still contact Rajthilak and ask him whether he can do one for you. He does angel eye projectors with H7 halogens.

Cheers,

Jay
