    Hello everybody, For my next project i chose to build an indicator that will show me when the brake and tail light bulb is burned. BEcause we have only one light for brake, if the filament is interrupted while riding, we will not know that the bulb is burned and the other people won't see when...

    Newbie F650GS owner. Bike came with TouraTech twin projector headlights, which I found lacking in candlepower compared to my Suzuki 250 Djebel's headlight. I both have and plan to install the original BMW headlamp, which has a 55/60w bulb, but want to use a 90/130w bulb. I'm pretty sure the...

    The lower of the two bulbs in my headlight is very dim. I guess it just needs replacing but have two questions, a) what is the type of bulb I need to buy to replace this? Can I get from Halfords etc. or do I need to go to BMW? b) How can I get the bulb replaced without disassembling the...

    I had to change my main beam bulb (H1) yesterday and encountered a few problems when re-fitting. Access is a nightmare, but finally got the bulb in. No matter how many times I tried the bulb is loose and does not seem to be located in the housing properly. The clips securing the bulb are...

    I like a bit of green laning, especially in the dark when it's raining, :riding: I know I must be mad, but the BM loves it. I find the standard headlight 60/55w bulb is like a candle or worse. Having pondered over aux lights for a while and followed the Blinglights topic, I was very tempted...

    Hi, I have a little problem with my high beam bulb, it doesn't work and yet it does!? I took the dash to bits today and changed the bulb for a new one and it still didn't work so I tried the very same bulb in the indicator display bulb and it worked so it isn't a bulb? I dunno what else...

    HI Everyone With the dark nights and of course dreary days I thought I may go for a brighter headlamp bulb, I have seen the philips h4 gt150 which you can only buy in pairs which they claim to be 50% brighter than an ordinary bulb But I have been offered an off road bulb 100/90 watt. Could the...

    Hello to all, I replaced my headlight bulb and because it's a bit akward, I broke the plastic bit that attaches to the metal clip that keeps it in position. Any ideas on an alternative way of keeping this in place. (I've already tried superglue) The rubber thing keeps it more or less in but...

    Hi Chaps Haven't run my GS Dakar (2000) for a couple of months. Had the battery on charge and then refitted it. Front and Rear brake doesn't appear to switch the brake light. Bulb looks okay. Haven't looked too far yet. Any ideas? Jon Seasons Greetings!

    Just bought a xenon "50% brighter" headlight bulb for the GS (I know I shoulda checked here for opinions first - but I've got it now so if it's crap I'll learn from experience..) and in my usual mechanically incompetent way can't work out how to fit it! The FAQs over at the chain gang are no...
