What light bulbs should you use?
on: November 05, 2012, 04:49:32 PM
After reading with the different legal head lights available for the CR I am wondering what to get?

lets be honest the lights on the Cr are not very good during the dark!

Is there any legal lights bulbs available to the CR ?

It is now very dark so early these days I am just wondering what light bulb could be replaced from the original one! ANY HELP once more apprieciated!

On my VFR in north America, I had (illegal) 100W high beam bulbs.  Like this one...

I don't know what the penalties are if you get caught with 'em, though...

Osram night breakers.  +1

Be careful of xenon bulbs and bulbs that are over voltage.  You may melt the reflector.

Question; what light bulbs sits beside the main headlight? Are those like these onse?: http://www.autoverlichting-reeuwijk.nl/data/upload/Shop/images/big_led-stadslicht-lamp-1.jpg ?


And how do I get them out from behind? twist and turn, or pull ?
