Personally I'd upgrade the bulbs to silverstar ultra, and then add led driving lights to your forks.

Just by changing my bulbs to silverstars on my 400 I have no issues seeing fine on dark country roads at night. The driving lights I have yet to add, but I know they will be a nice addition.

I did the silverstar upgrade. Only difference I noticed was a lighter wallet (;

Perhaps you had great bulbs in your tmax to start with. Sure was a big difference than my 2004 400 had in it. Other than that, I gots nuthin.

Couldn't be. If I had great bulbs to start with, I would not have been inclined to spend a lot of money and effort replacing them (;

At the end of the day, Silverstars and Dr. Pulley parts had the same effect: despite public accolades concerning their utility, all I got out of it is a lighter wallet (;

I converted my burgy650 55watt halogens to 40watt LED with 4800lumen.
These, and most of the good new ones, come with the copper sheath heat sink out the back. And it plugs straight in to your existing wiring harness

I don't know what style bulb the burgy200 takes, but the 2005 burgy I have takes the H4. It was only mildly harder to replace than a standard bulb.

MUCH brighter.

Has anyone used that product?

holy cow those are expensive. Are you sure they'll throw more light way out front?

These are the ones that I purchased to replace my main lights.

Title says 5200 lumen, but the box arrived saying 4800 lumen. Either way, the lights are much brighter than the halogens.
