The newer 400 has dual headlights 35/35w, and the older 400 has a single headlight. Here is my question, the older 400 with single headlight, are they also 35/35w or is it the reg 60/55w and do they burn out easily also?

Second question, how hard/long does it take to change
the brake light/license plate light bulb? (on the newer 400)

Phil, I don't have an answer for you either, but theres several of us with 400's and only one had probs with headlight bulbs burning out. After several changes by the dealer he has not had any to burn out for quite a while. I think they put in an auto bulb because his is much brighter than ours.

Never heard of a tail light bulb burning out. Can't be much of a prob to change tho. Just curious: why are you concerned about it?

Two quick points - - I just had a light bulb go out on my 400.
Trying to find a 35/35 bulb is like finding gold ! So I just put in a standard "H 4" auto bulb 55/65 and I find it very hard to tell the difference in light between the old and new.
One other thing, it really helps to have a bike lift. :lol:

Hi Guys :hello2:

Been a bit busy lately, sorry! :book:

The Old Burger (well my Ye Olde Burger) has the single headlight 60/55W H4. and they do not seem to have a problem with premature burn out.

As to why these other bulbs (I was always taught to refer to them as lamps - by the way :wink: ) seem to have poor endurance is beyond my ken - electrickery - I have enough problems figuring how it ever works at all :lol:

My tail lights are fine, I was just wondering because when I look under
the seat, everything is so nice & neat. Can't see any wires at all, so must be a lot of work to get to those tail lights.
