hi, in australia &european models they run both an ac system [ which powers the lights] and a dc system which powers the brake light, indies,& horn[ its still very meek output ], so as far as im aware you can run any headlight other than an hid type light as they need dc current, ive got a electrosport twin output stator, runs 100wt dip/high beam bulbs thru a ascerbis cyclops headlight unit + a dc system for every thing else

Yes you can run any standard bulb on AC it dont matter. Now LEDs have to have DC
