I thought I read somewhere that the 55/65 might put excessive loads on the electrical system and that a 35/35 is preferable. Has anyone had any experience with this? I'd love to have a little more light, but rather not press my luck.

I haven't tried it. I rarely ride my TR6 at night and when I do it is in the suburbs.

I haven't had any trouble at all running this halogen bulb.

I have used it for riding at night and then turned off the motor with the headlight still on to pull it into the garage and still had plenty of battery power left.

i think as long as your battery is good and is up to charge ,the generator should be able keep it charged even with the stronger bulbs !

Perhaps some think the wiring can't handle the extra amount of power needed.....but so far, no Lucas Replacement Smoke needed on my T140! :y2:
