Yamaha XT550 Headlight upgrade

My son just got his 1982 Yamaha XT 550 on the road, and the stock headlight is pretty poor

We are thinking of upgrading to HID or at least halogen. The stock bulb is no longer available anyway. I've been told that some Harley's use the same 5 3/4 bulb size. So I'm thinking I can use a halogen or hid bulb and reflector to do the upgrade. I'm not sure that the stock lighting coil will handle the increased wattage. Anyone have any experience with this upgrade or something that used the same size seal beam ??
