This has more to do with the bike than the carbs so I'll put it here.

Hi Steve, I just completed an Halogen headlight conversion, during the front end, gauge and fork rebuild, but not real happy with the output of the 60/55 H4 bulb. To me it doesn't seem much brighter than the original Stanley sealed beam. How does this bulb compare? Looks like it would fit in the Halogen conversion carrier? Would any other changes need to be made to the charging system to use this bulb?

It is supposed to be plug and play. Should get it tomorrow. I'll post a clip about it. Hopefully it'll last but I'm sceptical about it.

Nice to have a new cable. I forgot how easy it was on the clutch hand. I started a thread on the LED headlight.
