The high beam and low beam bulbs are "standard", single filament,  H7 bulbs. You can find H7's at any auto supply store or Walmart.

Because this is the first time you've done this job; be aware that the socket adapter (item 7 in above illustration) needs to be removed from the original bulb and reused on the replacement bulb. It can be confusing when the replacement bulb is compared to the original and the original bulb appears to be several inches longer. It's because that (#7) adapter is still attached to the original bulb. Just pull the bulb and adapter apart and put the adapter on the new bulb. HTH

I usually buy a two-pack of the H7 bulbs and place one in a solid container so I carry a spare at all times. If you stay with the halogen bulbs they are cheap (10-20 bucks USD) for 2.

Thank you for the help I forgot it was the H7 bulb that would work. I am NOT mechanicily
inclined liked my spelling lol. So I will pick up the bulbs in the next few days and have my
brother take care of that. He took care of the bulb burn out on my 04 swing that I did
have. One more thing I have seen some posts on here about the HID lights just curious
are they brighter? And what would I have to do IF I changed to those HID lights??
Thank you

HID lights are considerably brighter than halogen type bulbs. 

HID kits are basically plug n' pay. The most puzzlesome "problem" is where to physically attach the ballast behind the front fairing.

I probably have the DTMoto works on the shelf in my shed. PM me if you are interested.

I've been using Philips H7 X-treme Vision +130 bulbs for 3 years not a burn out so far. Nice and bright white light looks like a OE bulb just brighter.

Tried Silver Star in other things always seem to burn out a bit faster.

HID has issues with mounting and wiring things. Illegal in many states if it's not OEM installed.

Thank you for the info on the H7 bulbs and the HID I was just curious about those HID. Sounds
like they maybe kind of hard due to the fact of the ballast placement. YES I would like
BRIGHTER head lights on low beam.
THANK you all for the info I forgot what a great group of people on here helping each other
out.

HID lights are brighter, but please don't do it! Never mind the ballast and wiring, unless the headlamp is designed for them (and the Silverwing headlamp is not) they are a pain for other drivers and riders because they are very poorly focused and shine in all directions (including into others' eyes) on what should be dipped beam. (Perhaps not so much a problem in areas with less traffic density than we have in the UK.)

The original headlamp focuses the beam from what is effectively a pointof light from the filament in a traditional incandescent bulb. HID lamps have an area of light, not a point, so the focusing doesn't work properly and the light spreads well beyond the intended dipped beam cut-off.

There has been a bit of a craze for HID light conversions in the UK for a few years now. They are illegal here unless the headlamp is designed for them, but it hasn't been illegal to sell or buy the conversion kit. It really is annoying and dangerous for other road users. Fortunately, I think the MOT test (annual safety inspection for vehicles over 3 years old) has been tightened up to check for illegal fitting of these, and/or they've just gone out of fashion. Either way it's quite a relief that there seem to be fewer of them about now.

The extra bright incandescent lamps such as the Philips H7 X-treme Vision +130 (that Mech 1 twa mentions) are a good improvement, and a simple straight swop. I had these on a previous bike, and will put them in my Silverwing as soon as either one of the original bulbs goes, or if I ever get further down my to-do list.

Seadog makes a good point: "they [HID] are a pain for other drivers and riders because they are very poorly focused and shine in all directions (including into others' eyes) on what should be dipped beam."

You might respond, "Well, this is just what I want--to be seen." True, but besides being highly impolite, you could create a dangerous situation, especially from old farts like me. As we age, many of us lose a lot of sight and coordination, making it much harder to drive at night, especially against those dastardly high beams and high "low"beams. I tend to lose my lane direction while driving against extra bright headlights at night, and many of these are on LOW BEAM. If you haven't been there yet, you WILL get there unless YOU DIE YOUNG.

One of the most frustrating things that we all endure today is the fancy headlights on these new cars with the often "optional at a higher price" brighter headlights. While it seems to be a one-upmanship LOOK-AT-ME thing, maybe some day insurance companies will call attention to the danger of these annoying and unsafe headlights when they observe enough safety studies that show more accidents caused by these bright lights. Maybe that's why some states do not allow certain types of lighting.

Lights are necessary for safety, but bright lights, especially the kind described by Seadog, can be unsafe.

And while I'm at it regarding lighting, I often have forgotten to turn my headlights on in fog or that most dangerous period between light and dark, or dark and light. So why would you pay $50,000+ for a new fancy vehicle with flashy annoying headlights, but that same vehicle does NOT come with DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHTS? How much more would it cost to install daytime running lights on that expensive vehicle? It has a heated steering wheel, but NO DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHTS? Many new pickup trucks seem to lack that safety addition. Maybe the bigger the vehicle, the less we need lights, because I won't get hurt slamming into another vehicle in my big truck. Forget about the other guy who couldn't see you. When I bought a used Miata 20 years ago, the first thing I did was to install daytime running lights, costing me under $20. While more car makers are including running lights, there are still too many of these expensive vehicles on the road without daytime running lights, especially with colors like fog gray, snow white white, or rain blue.

Here in Pennsylvania we have a law that if you need to use your windshield wipers, your headlights must be on. Many scofflaws ignore this law, because it rarely seems to be enforced.

Next time you are driving/riding in a close-to-dark or low-visibility situation, notice how many cars coming against you do not have any lighting. It won't take long. Having no lights can be just as dangerous as having too much light. You may really appreciate this point when you make a left turn in front of a car on a dark or foggy day and be the cause of an accident by turning in front of an oncoming car because you didn't see it.

Ok, done venting.

I had a 1980 Yamaha 850 that had a flat line headlight bulb. By that I mean the bulb was like a D laying on its side. I also had a pair of very bright driving lights on it mounted to the roll bars. I adjusted the high beam so that it would shine a bit lower than the top of a car's trunk. It didn't bother anybody but was bright enough to be a great low beam. I used the driving lights for my high beams which worked very well. They would light up the road at least 1/4 mile in front of me and down into the ditches on a 2 lane road. They also got oncoming cars attention when they didn't want to dim theirs. I never had anybody flash their lights at me with my bright "low" beam either.
