Default Switching stock bulbs for xenon bulbs

Dont have an HID kit yet, just gonna do it over the winter... just want the white/blue HID looking bulbs for now. hate the yellow ones

But what kinda size bulb do i need to buy? Sorry if newb question, just bought an F4I and first CBR i've owned and first 600.

Also, my bike has dual headlight mod, so highbeam is on all the time, but is at 50% dim, and highbeam makes it 100% dim.

so what kinda size/model bulb do i need for normal bulb and highbeam

High beam sounds like an H4 or 9007 (aka dual filament bulb).

Honestly if you have the know how to revert the dual headlight mod back to stock I would do that and order the ddm tuning HID kit. The kit only takes like 45 minutes at the most to install. Then whatever time it will take to convert your headlights back to stock. Well worth the small amount of time. Do it on a rainy day you cant ride anyways. Plus the HID look alike bulbs will be just as much as the actual HID kit you can purchase. Just my 2 cents.

i actually bought the dual, and just used one of them. gave the other to a buddy to do his low beam. we want the functionality in the high beams just in case. thus, getting the MTEC bulbs for the highs.
