Wondered if anyone has experience with the Lumen brand Halogen headlight bulbs? I ordered some for my 2018 STX 4x4 , stock are lame. Ordered them from Carid, seemed to be better than Silverstars, and others.

Reality is, all the "designer" halogen bulbs provide very little benefit. The only halogen version that do are higher-wattage, which can cause electrical issues and blinds other drivers.

When you purchase any of these brighter halogen variants, you're sacrificing life to do so. Hotter filaments burn out sooner. Legally the manufacturers have to abide by the standard wattages, so the only option is to run a hotter filament with the tradeoff being burn time.

The ultimate recommendation to you would be a retrofit, but thats an involved process.

Another option is purchasing some of the HIGH END led kits. Diode dynamics, Morimoto 2stroke, GTR lighting, etc. The 50 dollar kits you buy on ebay and amazon will have terrible focal patterns and will just blind other drivers.
