I was wondering if anyone has installed Hyper white light bulbs, if they are hard to install, and if they make much sense???? I also heard that they get to hot and burn up your wires, any truth to this?

I put some Opti Blue Platinum Xenon globes in my '01 and they work great. H4 60/55W which is the same as stock.
They are a brilliant white with a hint of blue from different angles much better than the stock ones.
took 2 min to put in

I had them (well one) in my 99 and it was hard to get at since it had the one bulb in the middle. The overheating horror stories you've heard have most likely been with the 110watt versions. They're brighter, but not worth the risk IMO. If you get the ones that have the same stock wattage (60/55 I think, as mfzx6r said) they're fine.

They look a lot better than the stock ones. They look brighter to look at etc, but do they actually provide better lighting? Debateable to me. I don't think so, at least the ones I had (eurolites I think), but they weren't a whole lot worse either. I just didn't find much diff. But they did look a whole lot better. And on my 02, the stock ones are so fricking bright I'll be putting superwhites back in so I hopefully don't get as many people flashing me. On a 2000+ model it should be easy to get at the bulbs.

I was thinking of geting a brighter balb too for my bike. I heard the horror stories of the wires melting also. I thought the 110 watt bulbs that PIAA sell only draw the standard 55-60 watts but yet manage to put out a brighter light without risk to your wiring? Don't how that would be possible.

WOW 110 watts, your asking for trouble, I run a 35/35 on my right (green lens cover) anything higher melts the lens cover

My left I run the standard 55/65...
I really don't care about how bright my lights are, I keep my highbeams on 24/7
