    I took the MTS out for a ride in todays sunny weather and noticed that one of the headlight bulbs is out. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    m0mrr - Its simple to fix.... part ex your bike for a 950S, they have LED lights, so no messing around changing bulbs  :005: :745:

    I think you maybe the first one on the forum to have a bulb go. I maybe wrong though and hopefully someone can help recommend a replacement bulb.

    The latest Ride magazine has an in-depth test of 22 H4 headlight bulbs, tested on their SV650. The top rated bulbs were

    Phillips X-Treme Vision +130
    Osram Night Racer 110
    Osram X-Racer 110
    OEM Phillips halogen bulb, only marginally down on the “performance” bulbs and a fraction of the price!

    Yes, I know we use H11 bulbs, but a very illuminating test anyway  :008:
