    Headlamps flickering then quit working, finally solved.

    Most of the YM series, both domestically sold and gray market have the Stanley headlamps and Yushin-Seiki switch. I had spend about 2-hours debugging the failed light. The bulbs are the halogen type Wagner HM202 that are the direct replacements of the Stanley P15D25 incandescent. The...

    Headlamps from P15D-25 incandescent to HALOGENS.

    My goal was to keep the OE look to the YM machine. I've seen the LED headlamps and it took away the natural era look. Yet, finding the P15D-25 bulbs at a good price is a pain. And typically what you do find is the 25W/25W vs the OE 25W/35W (low/high beam). After consulting a few vehicle...
