Can anyone recommend brighter headlights? Seems the ones I have are tinted and not very bright. Cars love pulling out in front of me even when on bright.

Osram night breakers or Philips gt200's are what I'd recommend. Others will probably chime in as well. Sylvania silver star's are what I ran on the bandit. They didn't do well in my '08 r1 for some reason.

The '02/'03 R1's are H4. I think the stock wattage is 55. You can get 100W H4's, but it's possible it may melt around the headlight housings. I ran 100w H4's on my '03 R1 and never had any of those issues. Just watch wiring around where the bulb housing is. Just noticed your bike is a '01. I think they are still H4's.

LED is the way to go now. They have replaced HID as the brightest.
