    ZX6R - headlight question


    This is a total dumbass question.. but I need help. My headlight went out ('02 zx6r ) and where there's only a low beam on one side, I forget which freakin side it is.

    Also, do you guys recommend any aftermarket lights or should I just go with the generic replacement?

    Thanks and I apologize for cluttering the board with a nimrod request.

    thanks...

    Do you have an owners manual? Should say in that.

    Looks like your lowbeam is on the right if you are facing the headlight. Not 100% sure.

    i dont have a manual, but i think i've hunted down the pdf online before. i'll try that.

    course all my lazy ass would have to do is switch out each bulb and see for myself... but i AM lazy.... well, somewhat.

    thanks for the advice.

    Buy the pair of silverstars. They are cheaper in the pair and you will need it at SOME point.

    ZX6R - headlight question

    If you only have a low beam on one side then someone changed it from stock. It should have 2 low beams/2 high beams.

    Get the regular halogen lights if you do any night riding. Those white bulbs SUCK at night, especially if the road is wet.

    If your talking about getting a packaged pair, you not getting motorcycle silverstar,

    the ones that come packages as a pair have a beam designed for a cage reflector, bulbs for motorcycle beams are different and only come packaged as singles

    On my 12R which should have nearly identical headlights as the 6R, I couldn't see any difference between the "motorcycle" bulb and the twin pack so now I save a full $0.50 per bulb by buying a pair!

    Not sure which bulbs you used but the Silverstars have been very good during wet night rides.
