I think you mean double point as high-beam and low-beam combined. Right?
So, H3 only has single beam and not low-beam and high-beam variations.

exactly.
h3 for the lack of shielded low beam filament ,will run always in high beam mode only. also the bulb bases will not fit.

a long term 6 month update-
the modded headlight is doing well. the bulb is still the same 55/60 and shows no signs of failure.

there is no darkening / yellowing of the reflector.
there is no Battery issue.

Can you say a name of any bike/scooter that has H4 holder?
Because, the spare parts shop here are nuts and they will see like [roll] when asked for H4. If I tell them 'Splendor Bulb Holder' or 'Pulsar Bulb Holder', they will identify and take it out.
And, Does Kinetic have 3 wire config?
Almost all motorcycles comes with H4 these days. You can mention Pulsar 180 or Bullet Classic 350. Approach a truck or car parts shop for a better response.

Can I use 100/90W bulb?
Or only 60/55W bulb?
I am going to use it on my Kinetic first and then on my Splendor.
Yes, Kinetic has low and high beam. Yeah just I recalled and it has 3 wires, one is red, one is black, one is green, Right?
100/90 will be an overkill and also melt away the reflector.

seems good. this is a tractor h4. (old type )
I used safari /Scorpio h4 which has 3 leaves (merc like symbol ) for bulb mounts.
see if it fits.
This is called H4 P43t bulb. The circumference at the seating face is 43mm. This is not the old type. The old one is P45T with 45mm at the seating face.

The picture is of a P45T while the description says P43T. Confusing.
Kinetic Honda bulb holder can take only a BA20D bulb used in Auto Rickshaws & Bajaj scooters. You can go for the MSR reflector (the one with transparent glass as seen in later models) with a 35/35W halogen bulb of Bajaj Scooters. This is what I did in my wife's Kinetic Honda.
