I wanted to buy a new headlight for my 97 zx-6r. it's a single headlight, and an H4. I was looking at the Sylvania Silverstar. It says " For Motorcycle Use Only". It's only like 10-20 bucks. then i look in catalogs and the PIAA H4 is 45-50 bucks. whats the big difference? is the PIAA that much brighter? what brands do you guys use? also, my bulb is 55/60W. do i have to buy that wattage or can i step up to the 90/110?

I would just watch the voltage/amperage aside from that the different wattage would be acheived by how the light is made. Kinda like how a 60w lamp in you house can also take a halogen light.You can never go to bright with your bulbs though. I wouldn't pay 45 bucks for your bulbs though, I have colored bulbs and only paid 20 each. Check your local auto store they should have what you need.
