Bright Headlights

In order to increase the power of my headlamp I was told that I should replace my 100/85 EIKO bulb with a PIAA Xtreme White Plus H4 Bulb. I was further told that the 100/85 high power bulb will diffuse the light and not put it where it is needed.

I prefer not to replace the dual relay system that I have wired in. It took a while to zip tie the relays in place and do a clean installation and I am not convinced that the set up is wrong. But the difuse, long distance beam does not deliver what's needed.

The high beam is brighter than stock, but it casts wide and doesn't give that bright runway illumination. What can I put on the bike that will light up the road?

Is there a difference in what brand 100 W bulb I use.

Thanks for the help, poor headlights at speed are terrible,

Just put an HID kit on and LOVE it! I've only ridden 1 night with it but it is incredible. Street signs light up like plasma tvs. There are a bunch of places to get them, I got mine from Xenon rider.

What does a HID kit have that is different then what I have? I thought a 100 W would have done it.
