Stock Bulb?? is it seated properly? Is it Condensation maybe? I went from stock to a PIAA ultra bright and no issues and ran the stock bulb for 1000 miles. now have 1500 miles still now spots. Is it inside or maybe a rock hit on the out side?

I'd guess it's a high output bulb. Seen some bulbs 100w on high beam, think stock is 60w.

I'd check the running battery voltage also, shouldn't be over 14.5 volts.

I have the same white spot on my headlight lens. It comes from overheating. I did it to myself by running the bike in winter with the cover not completely off the bike. Heat bulit up and left me a project for spring. Anyone know where I can get a replacement lens for less than the dealers $130?
