Yep, the H4 bulbs pull 55/60 in stock form. I don't see the point of running dual lights and just running one. If its a 35 watt and a 55 watt dual, your still killing the battery on high beam. With both on high were talking 120 watts with two standard H4s. With the "off road" H4 bulbs we are at 55/100 or 80/110 etc..

The 35 watt HID will give about 20 watts up to power heated grips hopefully leaving a surplus of a conservative 70 watts for a jacket liner and a GPS....

The bike does not put out full power at low speeds either. I only need a heated jacket when I'm on pavement anyway, its the cold wind that gets me...
