    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!

    OSRAM NIGHT BREAKER PLUS H7 ?
    MOTO VISION PHILIPS ?

    please advise....

    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 ?
