How many watts does the standard headlight have? How much larger of a bulb can I purchase for maximum light and which bulbs do you recommend? Thanks in advance for your help.

From the manual my 2003 wing has a 55 watt headlamp bulb. I would be wary of increasing the wattage as I did this with my Audi and it melted the bulb connector unit. You can buy Hid-Xenon bulbs on Ebay that will increase the light from the headlamp.

As John states HID bulbs will increase light output, some are
advertised as HID but they are just replacement bulbs with a brighter light.

Proper HID kits include chokes that increase the voltage that supplies the bulb, they also run at a lower wattege than standard bulbs, bit harder to put in though.
