Default recommendation for head/foglights

dudes- I am looking to replace my possibly original lights on my street 951. One fog is burnt out and the headlights are pretty much useless. I'm not really interested in converting to HID, just looking for a really good replacement that throws some good light. Any suggestions?

Silver Star headlight drop ins, and I am a huge fan of the Euro fog housings with 50W / 100W Halogen bulbs!

Euro fog lights with 55/110W are the shizz-nitt.

Euro-Code H4 replacement lights will do much better... make sure the grounds, cabling and connectors are good, otherwise it'll ALL be a little bit 'dim'.

I have Marchal Amplilux (E-code, win-reflector and uber-rare, somewhat similar to Cibie Biodes) in the pop-ups, and Euro fogs with 55/110W, all PIAA throughout. -Absolutely ZERO issues with visibility under any circumstances, and no dazzle, unless both sets of brights are on, in which case I can probably roast a deer at 35 feet! ;-)

I have the Hella housings in my car, and they're cheapest on Amazon...you'll be astounded at the difference.

Thanks guys. I just noticed that the left fog light doesn't work when the high beams aren't engaged, but when you engage the high beams the both work. Anyone have this happen?

This is the best buy. $50 for both headlights. These are Bosch glass E-Code H4's. Exactly the same as the euro car lights but they have 'motorcycle' written in the glass. Harley over ordered a ton of these and now the market is flooded. Just buy some good H4 Bulbs of your choice and you'll be happy. I got Osram 70/65w to not overtax the electrical system and they are awesome. I don't think I'd go over 70w high beams without changing the wiring.

Standard 60/55w bulb produces 1510/910 lumens (high/low). Osram 70/65w bulb produces 2000/1350 lumens (high/low). With these new lamps it was an enormous improvement in light output.

And here are the bulbs...
