    I'd say this is even better , but then, they'll start asking the most important (for them) question, that I HATE TO CORE!!! How much did it cost? People find some sort of excuses to keep asking too many questions that are totally not related

    I have been using the 12v 80 w bulb ... If what you are saying is true.. I will have to get those replaced ASAP.

    Not intending to be rude, I have noticed that the stock bulb on the Ninja is powerful enough even on low beam (High beam is luxury). Do you really need HIDs on the bike (maybe you do lots of night riding or something)?

    The pleasure is when your rear wheel slides, and you bring it back; and when the front wheel lifts, you take your time bringing it back.

    what i am trying to say is these 80 watt bulbs are good interms of total brightness and lumen output.as the ninja alternator has more then enough power to pull these ,so battery drain will not be an issue.

    see a p 220 s reflectors are designed for 55 watt bulbs but we are using 80 watt osram h7 in them,and let me tell you,even after using for more then 3 months or so in 2 diff p 220 s ,still no issues.
    every reflector is having some safety margin,a 55 watt rated reflector is capable to use at least 10~20 percent more heat,as you may know people use 55/60 watt bulbs in somany desi bikes whichs reflectors are actually designed for 35 watts,no probs.me personally used 55/60 on p 180 for more then 2 years and also using hid,no probs.
    also a car reflector is designed for 55/60 bulbs,and as you may know many car owners are already boosting that to 90/100 or even 130/100 with out much hiccups.i admit the cars built quality is far far superior then our bikes but still a 55 to 80 is not that big jump,specially if you think that the oem reflector is designed for 55 watt heat,not 35 watt,our funda was that and we were not wrong in case of p 220 ,80 watt upgread and numerous 35 to 55/60 watt upgrades.

    now as ninja is one of the most premium product and each and every part oozes quality ,i have faith that it s reflectors are also no different.its just that no one tried these in long term basis and the sheerer cost of ninja parts (oem reflector set up is close to 9k i suppose) are what pulls me back.
    i suggest if you can take the risk ,carry on and see.if you find any blackish area on the upper half of the reflector after using the headlight,better to revert to 55 watt bulbs then.
    also if you are running higher rated bulbs upgread your fuse.the stock load was about 8.8 amps and now its 11.3 amps,so you should upgread the fuse by 2.5 amps,or there can be blow of fuse due to increased load.

    the moment you later the oem,you loose your warranty.and as tibby said the ninja is having good lights,i doubt the hid projector will add up more in terms of total visibily,specially in low beam.yes i am not talking about the bling factor.

    Thumbs up Ninja 250R Bulbs

    Hi all,

    It seems that the Philips X-Treme power is also a very good option, Philips says you'll get upto 80% more light than the normal halogen at the same wattage and so do the reviews. If not those, you can also opt for the Philips motovision bulbs which are specifically tailor made for motorbikes only. They give a reddish-orange tint on the reflector so and upto 40% more light than your standard OEM Halogens with the same wattage.

    The headlights on the ninja are quite adequate for normal night usage. However some people have installed a single projector on the high beam with HID to make it look like a one eyed mean monster or something.

    I dint find the headlights inadequate, but my highway coverage was limited to lit highways, The little unlit highways that i did, i found it sufficient, and rivaling all other bikes out there.

    Its 80% more throw & not the brightness. I've a Xtreme plonked & have compared it against the regular H4; on the aspect of brightness, I haven't seen any difference, however, from the throw perspective a huge difference. Xtreme is really throwing the high beam at extreme distance

    I back that... I frequent lengthy highways frequently and I have felt the coverage to be sufficient...

    guess, it must be the extreme distance coverage which everyone is looking for when looking for a bulb upgrade!

    Yes. At the sametime, the fixed fairing makes it tough to tackle the corners at night.

    the stock lights are adequate for the ninja on pitch dark highway's to do about 70 - 80 kms speed with both lights on. at this speed you have a good chance of skipping/stopping if you encounter a speed breaker or pothole etc enroute. long rides on dark highways i prefer to do about 70 - 80 as i feel quite comfy.

    by the way i will not experiment with bike electrical's (that includes fancy bulbs) as i have learned the hard way that things may fail at the most in appropriate time.
