00' 929 headlight bulbs H4 or H7?

I orderd some hyper white bulbs from luminics.com and there site said that H1's where the ones i needed for my bike. so i went to put them in and they where the wrong ones. So i called luminics and the guy said that i needed H4's but after going to pep boys i saw some H4's with 3 prongs and the 929 lights have 2 prongs.. can someone please tell me what bulbs fit the 929? Also the brightest i can get without converting to H.I.D or melting my wiring.

Thank you for any help

H7s, and you need the adapters off the back of the stock ones. Black plastic with the prongs that go to the harness.

The brightest would be without any color. The coatings dim the light but make them appear whiter. I would stay with the stock on the highs and put a 100w in the center.

The Phillips SS bulbs are coated, they appear whiter but are actually darker than a standard 55w. If you still want that 'superwhite' look, find a bulb with a metallic-blue coating that is almost transparent. That will give you the white look with minimal loss of output. Phillips are like that but if you find a 100w bulb with that coating it will be brighter.

Sulvania Silver stars. I have them in my trcuk and Bike when its in street trim. Clean, clear, and bright. Avaliable at any auto parts store.

NASCAR is NOT a sport, it's something people watch to drown out the noise of the latest Garth Brooks album.

Re: 00' 929 headlight bulbs H4 or H7?

it may be too late to post but...

i'm a sparky and know my **** with globes.

you want the highest lumen rating available. higher wattage will give brighter lights but will also cause problems with wiring and magneto output/battery drain.

basically a standard 55w 12v H7 will be around 4000k (lumens) and be orange in color compared to others.

the "blue" light of projectors is due to the gas being Xenon and not halogen. it produces light in the 5000k range.

Phillips have a range called Diamond Vision which will give the best light at 5000k and still be 55w. the downside is at dusk, the light produced is close to pure daylight so its hard to see if you have them on unless your looking at them. at night they are blue/white and take some getting used to.

Xenon is just a gas. Moving the color around (4k, 5k, 6k) makes no difference in brightness, just color.

You should be able to find these at your local auto parts/speed shops or car stereo shops.

In the end you aren't really gaining that much. If you can, save the cash and get a real HID kit. Low beam only as the high beam would attract a lot of unwanted attention from people that take $$ from you if you ride with the high on all the time. Also HIDs aren't meant to be flashed so leaving a incandescent bulb in there is good.
