I bought some new Philips GT150s. They're pretty damn bright.

BTW. Did you notice the H7 is in with some kind of H7 -> H4 adapter? Maybe it's possible to have two H4s, and have a double high beam too?

One 55W filament takes less than 4A current. The electrical system can handle two of those without any changes.

For the peace of mind though I added an extra fuse for the second low beam.

"Simply run a wire from the bottom terminal of the
left headlight bulb (sitting on th bike) to the middle
upper of the right bulb, and whammo, both lights on and
still has the main beam in the right hand light set."
Hmm... when you do that and switch the high beam on, the both filaments in the H4 will be on? That doesn't sound good.

IT's been working fine for 4 months now.
Quick net search revealed that if you keep the both filaments on, the bulb might explode due to excessive heat buildup. And I suspect the headlight itself doesn't like the extra load either. You might even melt the reflector and/or the bulb connector.

I really recommend you do the mod "the right way".

Heh looks like I hit the sore spot :D

It's your bike so you can do anything you want with it. But if you had to pay $15k for it too you probably wouldn't do half-assed mods to it. Believe or not, there is a reason it must be done the "hard way".
