I guess they are probably H7 - should be no more than £6.00.

If they are, you are buying 'em from the wrong place Stewart.

The wholesale company I work for, sell Philips H7, into M/C dealers.

Philips probably being one of the best and most expensive...


We have to make up inflated retail prices for dealers who can't be arsed to work em out, and want to make loads money -


SRP including VAT (with loads of mark up) is £7.93

Anyhow, what you doin buyin' bulbs from the main stealer Stew, when you are in the game yourself?

You MUST be able to buy em for buttons, mate........

Being a Yorkshire type Stewart, I am only surprised that you didn't swap the headlamp bulb out of the ZR and then claim another FOC under warranty, :wink:

Or is the ZT under 1st year warranty ?

Bulbs are covered in year 1 that's all .........

Second and third year warranty is really only for major mechanicals.....
