    Default Highbeam doesnot work

    Highbeam does not light up, but normal headlight works fine. Highbeam indicator on the dashboard turns on fine. How do I go about addressing this issue? Thanks.

    Replace the bulb. The high beam is probably burned out, especially if you ride with your high beam on during the day.

    Is the https://www.amazon.com/HELLA-H4-Stan...itle_auto?th=1 I assume any H4 bulb would fit FZ6R, but wattage is OEM bulb? Is High Wattage - 100/55W compatible/recommended, or would it be too much load on the battery? I dont do much night riding, just looking for a bulb that has long life. I am not sure whether it is needed, but I have the high beam on all the time.

    55 low/60 high is stock. Wiring and switch are really limited and I would not go higher. If you want better light, consider an LED conversion.
    Now: 2015 FZ6R & 2008 WR250R

    I had an LED bulb in mine and I really dont think the light output was that much better. If I were to recommend an alternative, I would say bite the bullet and install an HID kit.
