Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

osram Nightbreaker bulbs

Post by oldenuff on Tue 02 Nov 2010, 11:46 am

Just tried one of these. Much more light with a very white colour. List at £30 plus but a tenner plus post from http://www.norbsa02.freeuk.com

Also Osram Nightbreaker Plus out now - £24 pair H4, delivered (though I guess someone will be doing singles.

These beauties last 50% longer than the standard Nightbreaker, but only a small uplift in price...

Any problems with melting/discoloured lens?
Been thinking about this for a while but would rather have a "dim view" than keep buying new headlights.

The bulbs don't run any hotter than normal as they're the same wattage, so no problem with melting or discoloration - just use as you would standard bulbs

If that's the case I'll get one for myself as well. It can get quite hairy on country lanes in the dark with the stock lamp!

Good move, you'll definitely notice the difference. It's the Xenon gas that produces the brighter output, rather than any increase in wattage...

My CB has a Powerbronze fairing with Twin Lamps. I've just changed from stock Halogen to these Osram Nightbreaker... The Twin lamps were 1x 55/65 and one 35/35 watt... The only thing is it kept blowing the 10A fuse, so I now run on a 15A fuse instead...

One other snag was a broken wire at a connector, but that was the mechanic installing the bulbs...silly me!!!!

As for the Osrams, they're fantastic cheers

Interesting... if my understanding is correct a 10A fuse ought to be good for up to 120 watts max.

V=IR, Volts (12) = Amps x Resistance (Watts)

Indeed you are correct...

I didn't make myself clear...

I originally has 1x 55/65 Watt and 1x 35/35watt

I now have 2x 55/65watt - and when both full beam 65W 'ON' this totals 130W thus blowing the 10A fuse.

15A works a treat Smile

Cheers

Yeah, that makes sense... 130 watts of light must be fantastic!

@Basil They are H4 bulbs. Same design as the standard bulbs just with a bit more oomph!
