Go to a autoparts joint and you can buy singles. I just got a Sylvania silver star for 21bux, nice and bright white light!
Way better than the stocker!
The reason I didnt go with the ultra is I fear it would be too hot for our fixtures, and wiring connector...
The silver star is plenty bright!

Fed up with silver and ultra stars. They only last about 3 months in my bike. Going to try a zenon bulb and if that doesn't last going to do a HID conversion for 80 bucks.

Suck it up and get the LED headlamp. You won't regret it. WAY more light and it covers WAY more space on the road around your bike. If you're gonna keep replacing regular bulbs ...you may as well just get this one and be done with it.

Looks like HD wants $400 for the light for your bike. I think I got mine for a discount. They wanted $525 for my bike but I got it for $325.
