Anywhere that sells H7 bulbs. Get 1 set which is 2 bulbs.

Many people think that the '03- 05 R6's come with 4 bulbs since there is 4 projectors. Its an illusion man.... there are only 2 bulbs (1 on each side).

I bought some HID's from a group buy a while back. Cost me 130 for one side only. I am never going back to regular bulbs again.

You have H7 bulbs, couple of options; std. blue, about $15.00 each, or PIAA high output, about $45.00 each.
Be careful of some high output bulbs, they draw way more amperage than your system is designed to put out resulting in melted plugs and charging system problems.

www.powerbulbs.com get euro bulbs, alot better then US ones. ran the PIAA's they always burned up within 1yr, for the $, they suck IMO

get the euro sylvannia silverstars (diff then US spec) OR i run phillips visionplus........

no they are not blue-ish........thats bunk. these just give out more light.

I ran sylvannia silverstars before I got my HID's and I loved them. Great light output. But yeah... blue bulbs equal sorry light ouput which is not good on a moto.

I've never had any problems with the PIAA's.
Ed, were they on your VFR or the SV?

VFR H4s, went thru about 4-5 within 1-1.5yrs, friend owned a shop, he kept replacing them, and they were like $60/pair ones.......IMO, no more piaa's.

1 of my phillips just burned up, after prolly 2yrs of riding......

funny though the SV also uses H4's (just 1) vs 2 h4's on the VFR........

I wonder if the failure had to do with the notoriously poor charging system on the VFR?
