I have a bad bulb so am replacing the pair. Previously I have used PIAA H4 Xtreme white bulbs in all my XS chassis, will these same bulbs fit the G4?

 

 

These have worked great in the past in my XS chassis sleds, do they drop in the G4 also? I have a brand new set sitting here I would love to drop in, thanks so much for the hand.

Thank you for the advice everybody, I decided to stick with what has worked the best for me in the past, I went with PIAA xtreme white bulbs.

A lot of good reviews on these. Hence why i bought them last season.

My initial thought was brite but found myself running into a wall of darkness all the time when trail riding.

I will admit i did not adjust them so that my next move and always had hi beams on

If they’re not oriented or adjusted correctly, you’ll be disappointed. If they are, I think you’ll be impressed...especially for the price.

My '18 G4 came with bulbs pointed down from factory. When I put in my Beamtechs, I played around with height adjusting screw in dash until I found the best that they would do. LED lights do not have the reach of good halogens, but better light in my opinion. Best to test on snow.

I used the NightTech 3600K H4’s in my 2016 with good luck. I like the BeamTech’s better in my G4. The NightTech halogens may have given a bit more distance, but it was a different lens of course and it was minimal if at all. The Beamtech bulbs do a great job of spreading out the light in trails and shining way out there in open areas.
