Default Re: SV650S Headlight Upgrade Opinions

I've got Osram Nightbreakers in there at the moment. They don't give out enough on the dark country lanes.

I don't tend to ride much at night. Usually just when I get caught out heading home late, so not sure if I can justify big expense and possible reg / rec problems too.

Maybe I would ride more at night if I felt I could actually see down the road though?

You have to admit those LED bulbs are damned impressive - much better than any filament bulb I have tried, and I have tried a lot (used to cover between 25 and 30K a year, much of it in dark at each end of the day so bulbs tended not to last very long) I used to change bulbs every 12 months because they did not last much longer than that (the +50% etc. bulbs burn hot and used to generally fail every 13 to 15 months, that includes Philips and Osram as well as Bosch and Halfords own brand).
