Hi,

My Formula Z 1995 has as a 60/55 Watt headlight bulb. Is it safe to remplace it with a 100/80 watt ?

thanks

Nope. Depending on the bulb, that much wattage will melt your headlight assembly. I have had friends of mine try higher wattage bulbs on their older sleds (similar to yours), and their gauges/handwarmers stop working, or they don't work as well.

At least if that's the claimed draw wattage. Most of the "higher output" bulbs will say 100/80 watt output but only draw 60/55.
