Has anyone converted their passing lamps to other bulbs? In the 2.5 years that we have had the Yamaha passing lamps (have H3 35W from new), we need to replace bulb number 6. Was thinking about changing to different bulbs if there is something available in hopes for longevity.

I bought my Silverado 1100 new in '06 and put the Yamaha passing lamps on it the same year. Nine seasons of riding, and the only bulbs I have replaced are the front turn signals. Make sure you don't have any pinched or bare wires anywhere. I run my passing lamps day and night. I'm coming up on 23k miles.

I had the same problem as you, I traced it down to two problems. The first problem was the switch on the light bar I by passed it, next problems cause was a loose ground wire for the light bar apparently I didn't tighten the bolt, oops! LOL I also put higher wattage bulbs in IRC 55w
