be very careful with cheap xenon bulbs. I deal in these, supplying to cinemas and stage & studio and they can explode very easily. there have been cases in states where they have exploded and caused nasty accidents.

they are very delicate but when they go, they are like a mini bomb........and if ya dont believe me, get one and throw it at the wall, but make sure nobody is anywhere near it. quartz glass scatters a long way. Unless they are Osram, or another well known make, dont touch em.

paul goff does 6volt halogen bulbs. i got one for my bsa and its very very good, a nice bright white light thats way better than the dim yellow it replaced. i also fitted an led rear to try and cut down on current usage to lights in order to make up for upgrading the headlight.
