Hi all, just joined the forum and started a 72 mile daily round-trip commute on my 2015 YBR 125 Custom.

I did my CBT in Jan and planning to complete DAS in the coming months.

Last night I left work later than usual and rode in the dark for the first time. Quite an experience.

The stock YBR headlight is terrible and I need to upgrade it. I appreciate the circuit may need some changes to support a more powerful unit, but can anyone recommend a replacement headlight?

Upgrading the bulb is an option, but it's likely to melt the plastic reflector!

Cheers,

Rob

What bulb is it? Look into a HID replacement. I did it on my pickup and no melting yet! I'm not sure if HIDs are any hotter than halogen really. Also maybe look into LED, but they need more room.

Or, how about an add on LED headlamp?
