Talking H4 headlamps Zenon Blue 100/90watt

Check out this seller on eBay. I purchased the 100/90 Zenon blue and really like the light output. The only problem is road signs are so bright reflecting the light at night, it's distracting.

I thought any bulb with more output than 60/55 watts would melt our plastic housing.
How do you get away burning a 100 watt bulb?

Say whaaat? Lol

Vulcans have glass reflectors and glass lenses... Pretty hard to melt those.

However... Some bikes, like my FJR... Use plastic lenses and plastic reflectors...100w bulbs could conceivably melt the plastic, but only the "bucket"
is plastic on the Vulcan, so you'd need a pretty hot bulb to start cooking that.

Wattage over 60/55 are not dot approved; however, I havean't heard of anyone gotten ticketed over them.

I was under the impression that any thing higher than the 60/55 bulb was not good because of the electrical system. So I guess I was wrong?

OK, so I generically called it a "housing", when the plastic part is actually called the "bucket".
I just remembered Ron/lance saying one time, to avoid using bulbs with wattage over 60/55 because there was an expensive plastic part in there that could melt.

I`m not personally familiar with the inside of the headlight bucket.
Have not yet had the need to get in there. Only know it from diagrams.
