Comments about Eiko Halogen Bulb:
I purchased a high-powered version (100/55) and am very impressed. This bulb replaced a Sylvania SilverStar Ultra that was previously fit to my Ninja 250. I was very pleased with those bulbs but the high-price and short-life I experienced with my car's bulbs was a bit of a deterrent. I love some extra nighttime visibility for my bike so I try to review different bulbs when I can afford to. (The SilverStar is still in good shape, back in it's blister pack where it will stay until the Eiko burns out or I review another brand.)Nothing outstanding about the low-beam, but the high-current high-beam is, to my eyes without any special equipment other than a 12am dark ride from work back home, ever so slightly but noticeably more effective than the costly bulb; exactly what I wanted to see.Another observation is that the light appears to be warmer than the Silverstar's white light, but by no means yellow, just a typical halogen; there is no coating on the bulb like there is on the Silverstar.The headlamp assembly on my Kawi is plastic, save for the glass, and after a week of 30-mile high-beam-usage-per-night has suffered no obvious damage from any extra heat generated by the high-power bulb; the same is true for my very-thin wiring. Closer inspection of the wiring is in order but I'm not expecting to be disappointed.I hope to experiment with modifying / improving my wiring harness to attempt to improve lighting further just in case the bulb cannot draw to it's full potential. This is pure speculation.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great for older bikes
This bulb is an excellent choice for older motorcycles with marginal charging systems. Very bright using only 35 watts.
