That's generally correct. The Ring ones I used are Xenon and I'm not sure about their life because although they said 400-500 hours minimum, mine had been in for around 3 years before I recently sold the Triple and I do about 15-20,000 km per year which is fine. The other benefit is that cars you're catching up on in daylight certainly know you're there! However, it's that old "fitness for purpose" adage!Trouble with bright halogen bulbs is they are way more expensive and don't last as long. I have a pair of Philips Xtreme waiting to go in, but I'm still undecided if to use them or not. I don't do much night riding and as the headlight is on all the time, I don't want to be forever changing the headlight bulb. This was my experience when I used to run upgraded bulbs in one of my previous cars. In the end I went back to standard halogen.
Let us know if you find something...You're welcome. I'm currently working out the logistics of sorting out a tidy and OEM looking switch for the headlight. It baffles me why they would have these day running fang lights then leave the bloody headlight on.
Just a thought....I've changed mine to Philips Xtreme Vision. Slightly cooler light so it matches the fangs and it's H4 for naked.
Me too...I use Osram Night Breakers for my naked.

I do around 8-10000 miles a year and never had one go yet, I've even swapped them between bikes.
I'm interested in doing this mod, is it difficult to do on the naked?I've changed mine to Philips Xtreme Vision. Slightly cooler light so it matches the fangs and it's H4 for naked.
