The light output is not only bright white instead of dull yellow, but the beam is better too which would indicate that the filaments are not positioned correctly in the cheap standard bulbs.
What I've done is used 2 LED Solice lights from these guys http://www.visionxusa.com/ the frontal size of the light is 2 inch square.
I mounted them on each side of the head light using the bolts that hold the head light in position. I wired them into the headlight using the main beam as the power source,. these units only draw 0.7 amps, and the light from them is fantastic.
When I have a gap I'll post some photos
