I am satisfied with a SilverStar Ultra 9003/HB2 H4 Headlamp.
Hope this helps

I ordered a pair of the PIAA extreme White from Amazon.com for $45. Still waiting for them to be delivered, but I expect a pretty decent improvement over the original bulbs.

The PIAA bulbs got good reviews, but ain't cheap. The Silverstars are popular ...likely because they cost less and are easy to find.

The other option here would be HID lighting... More money but alot better light. There's a post around somewhere detailing them.

I found Silverstars are good light but do not last long. I would go through one a season.
I have LED on my Ultra now and love them. Truck Lights makes them. Not sure if they will fit in a 750 but if you can get it to work it is great. Lower power use and better light.

There are some new led's out there, well not that new but newer in design. They are called CREE. I recently bought a cree led flash light for my pistol & it's amazing the light output of one of these leds. This is not your dollar store led light. I wonder if that's what their using. I looked at their site & it doesn't say what type of led it uses.

I installed the SilverStar bulb in place of the original stock bulb and am very happy with the resulting increased output of light. It is readily available at Walmart and other places, fairly "cheap" and is certainly an improvement over the stock bulb.

I put the Silverstar on the bike a couple of years ago and it does light the road better than the stock bulb. Recently I put a pair of the PIAAs on my car and what a difference. But as KM said, they're not cheap.
