As per my experience just changing the bulb to 55W doesn't improve the brightness as the coil could not provide the required power to completely power the bulb.it looked too yellowish in my try for the splendor.if your bike has a better lighting coil it may work.you can try it though.
yeah the H4 bulbs will work
Thanks harikishen, yes you are correct. the headlight powered from the coil directly. if it was connected from battery like in the unicorn, it may be given a consistent output. though different forums suggesting the wiring upgrade, bad experiance from the past bike stopping me from this.
Yes in usual 100/125cc bikes, coil doesn't have the power to light up the 55w bulbs, but i expect my bike will be little better, since it is 150cc and it is Suzuki and they usually known for their better lights (GS 150R & zeus are exception).
Is this Philips prime bulbs are available in our area?I mean Cochin Specifically?
Do you have any experience with these? Which one is better in these 3 models? As per the site these bulbs give only 30% increase in light. Due to the bad design of the reflector, i suspect that there will not be much noticeable difference. As per the description in Philips night vision & Osaram Night breaker plus coming for the cars have 100% increase in light throw.
What about Philips prime 25W bulb? earlier i had replaced my brother's crux headlight bulb and My Dio's bulb to 25W halogen which locally available(these bulbs does not have that black mark in front of them). Though it really increased the light and reduced the light differ in different acceleration, Light intensity is less and the points doesn't have difference. also holder got melt in the continuous usage and light failed though bulbs were not fused.

please note the poor headlight throw of 2010 model GS150 R bike is due to its head light unit design and their is nothing wrong with the power output or brightness of the bulb, even if you change the bulb to better power ratio or brightness or white color emiting bulb the outcome would be just 10 % better
at the max
so better you change the headlight reflector to the indian standard round reflector or remove the default one and costume fit a separate headlight
we all know MSN it is the problem with that reflector, but still Suzuki doesn't know this or they are not interested to change this. This is the main problem with the GS150R and the Zeus also.We own their new product Hayte also, but i feel it has better reflector and light too.
I am not going for the white/ blue colour bulbs, since it will only decrease the visibility.
My plans are
1. Currently i had 4 numbers of 55w ordinary halogen bulbs available as spare in my car and Osaram Night breaker plus in my car headlight too. I shall try these 2 type bulbs next week. if they are not better,
2. I will check for Philips prime 25W/35W. If it feels really worth i will go for it. If not
3. i will check the possibility of fixing old pulsar type round headlights. i am still a fan the light throw of old pulsar and the only thing i hate in My Gs 150 R is its HL and visor. But i suspect the possibility of fixing round lamp and also worried about the looks. i am not sure about how the meter console is fixed. Do you know any body done this in Gs 150 R? If possible somebody share a photo of the same.
