I have the same experience with my '09 using that bulb, so I carry spares in my tool kit, and seem to replace both high and low beams about twice a year. I have not looked into the LED plug-n-play -...

Thanks, good tips there - it has been a while since I revved it up that high, so I'll add that to my bag of tricks! I was also going to try a tank of non-eth this next fill-up to see how that does. ...

Thanks, yes I have been running 91+ the past few refills (and from different stations) to rule that out. It sounds like you favor the injector as the source, and not cam chain, etc? I agree a...
