I just burned out the second headlight bulb on my 09 300xcw last weekend. Is one year what I can expect out of the stock bulbs? Is there a better alternative? Sicass sells a Halogen one that is supposed to be a direct fit. I do run with the light on at all times. Mostly because the plastic part on the on/off post came off during my first trail ride and makes it slightly more difficult to grab with gloves on. I don't need anything super bright as I don't ride the thing at night, ever. Not sure why I need a headlight on it anyway other than it being the law. if a person can't see an orange bike during the daytime, they need their vision checked.
