DON'T DO IT!!!!!!!!!!
There have been a few damaged reflector/lens systems in the past, and those were with GLASS lenses. The higher heat drives plasticizers out of the plastic, hazing the reflector and inside of the lens, which is practically impossible to clean well.
I did run a 70 watt clear halogen and 85 watt high beam on my '01 with no problems, but I certainly would go no higher than that, especially since the '05 low beam lens is PLASTIC. I eventually switched to HID low beam, makes all other attempts pale in comparison, in more ways than one.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

No bike now, but maybe in the future.
