PowerBulbs at www.powerbulbs.com



They seem to have good prices and they include free shipping to anywhere in the world.

I have just ordered a set of Phillips Cool Blue H4 bulbs for my 12 to see how they work. I have seen the look of the Cool Blue and they look great. I want to check them out for myself to see the effect of riding visibility.



I will let you know how they work out.

Easy,

What are the wattages? and will they melt/bubble the plastic headlights?

Can't wait to get a full report...I love the look of blue lamps - really makes other vehicles notice you. Of course this is not good if your trying to go undetected!!!

I am sticking with stock wattages for my bike. However these bulbs have a UV filter on the glass that apparently is better for lenses.

How about a conversion kit so that you could install the HID lights? That would be bad ass. Anyone know anything about that system and how hard it would be to make a conversion kit?

I am still getting details, but apparently Phillips has a new bulb that is 50% brighter with the same power draw. I will post the price and part number for the ZX-12R as soon as I find out. I am going to try a set out instead of the cool blue.

OK here is the information.



For an advertised 50% more brightness with the same wattage draw use: Phillips H4 VisionPlus 12V 60/55W part# 12342 VP



For Blue Vision use Phillips H4 BlueVision 12V 60/55W part# 12342BV



I have received a set of both types but have not had a chance to try them out yet. I will let you know when I install them.



Make sure to order 2 bulbs for your bike the part# is only for one.
