Brighter replacement headlight bulbs

Are there bulbs that are brighter than the stock ones?
Not into the HID lights, just want a brighter headlight than stock.

I wasted $40.00 on a set of PIAA bulbs that were supposed to be super bright. They're somewhere in my toolbox now because I put HIDs in as soon as I came home from the first trip. Bite the bullet and install HIDs or you'll never be happy.

For 40 dollars just buy the Ebay HID lights. I put a set in mine and you will not get that kind of performance from a Halogen bulb. Worth the upgrade all the way. Also if its the blue color you dislike then just order the 4500K bulbs. They will give a very similar color to your factory bulbs, just a whole lot lighter.

He's seen the HID's at night on another Rhino, he usually rides tailgun, I think that's why he's not into them

Honda450, if you're at the auto parts store, find a bright white H6 style replacement bulb for your Rhino.

If you try to put anything brighter other than HID, it won't be long before you melt the wiring at the bulb socket.

Don't buy the cheapo ebay replacement bulbs. I melted the headlight sockets on mine. I then went with the PIAA bulbs. I don't ride much at night but they do the job for me when I do. They are brighter than stock.
