Simple H4 35 watt mod

I've got an 05' Husaberg (KTM) with the rectangular headlight. I've flipped the bulb upside down and found it focuses the beam and allows it to actually light up the road!

I now use the highbeam, and it shines on the smooth reflector (at the bottom) from a different perspective and is a huge improvement. It shines almost twice as far now. The downside is the lowbeam is worthless and shines up in the air now.

Don't have a before pic, but it was barely adequate. It certainly didn't light up the middle of the road like it does now. It left a dark spot just 30-50' in front of me.

It shines a good 150-200 feet down the road now.

Completely dark street, it looks a bit brighter than this. Cell phone pic...
