Get rid of your OEM bulb NOW!
I am not sure why KTM even bothers with their crap-arse bulb. It is worthless for riding trails at night. On a 450 XCW, that is not street-legal off of the floor why wouldn't they have a decent headlamp? This Cyclops bulb should be stock OEM. This is a torch, and is enough to ride single track at night, though you really need a headlamp also as a minimum night setup to always have light where you are looking. Also, I have bashed my number plate/headlight into trees, stumps and the ground and the bulb is still holding up. For a while I had a cheapo chinese HID setup that was brighter than a star, but fragile because it is still a gas bulb setup. LED is the way to go for dirt bikes. Lastly, because I live nearby, I brought my headlight assembly/number plate in and the crew at Cyclops installed my bulb and made sure it was working perfect before I left.
