Hey All,

I noticed the high beam on one of my lights on the Honda 300 went out yesterday - looks like I just need to replace the bulb.

Any chance I can swap out with any old 12v 35/35W that appears to fit from an auto parts store or should I order the OEM proper part and wait for it to get delivered to a Honda Motorcycle dealership?

Mine did not last very long so I found a LED equivalent at my local auto parts store. No burn outs. Mine has the braided heat sinks. A real pain in the ass to install.

The light pattern is probably not %100 right but I almost never ride at night. They are just something to make it look like I have headlights so that the police don't bug me. They are white but the average police officer would not know the Forza is supposed to have yellow lights. Canadian insurance is useless so I don't care what they think.

Thanks guys I saved $15 and got the new one installed... omg that freaking plug and clip...

My favorite user manual directions: "installation is the reverse of removal"

I want to find the guy who wrote that and place my fist gently on his face, pull back with great ferocity, then do the reverse of that.
