Hi sorry for a poll but cant find the NEW TOPIC option only POST POLL,

 I need a new dipped bulb so thought I would upgrade to LED while I'm at it but the manual states H7 55W x 2 left and right and x 1 H7 for main beam. But the parts catalogue from Fowlers and :-

https://www.parts-piaggio.com/piaggio-scooters/350-PIAGGIO-SCOOTER/X10/2012/X10-4T-4V-IE-E3/Electrical-system/Front-headlamps--Turn-signal-lamps/868/23/1076019102/1765

state  hate 35W x 2 and H1 55W
Which is correct ? I thought H7 would be correct.
 Thanks.

You should have new post privilidges, sometimes ad blockers prevent the buttons in the toolbars from displaying for some reason. We don't allow advertising so it's fine to turn blockers off for this site. Odd you should have poll but not new post as one depends on the other.
Sorry can't help with the bulbs but there are a couple of members who should be able to.

High beam is an H1. Yeah I remember there's a mistake in the handbook. And not the only one!

Note getting at them is extremely fiddly, top fairing panels off, and if you drop the H1 into the bottom of the lamp unit it requires taking the unit out to get it out again, guess how I know 

Not sure about LED's, but I changed my H1 (the main) to a Philips X-treme, also did the wiring mod that keeps the dips on all the time, was proper impressive on a dark country road.

Sorry PS: yes the dips are H-8 35W. Not H7. Guess which I bought for spares. 

But I think it's what the Clio uses for the front fogs.

I've fitted h-8 LED bulbs and they are working well, much whiter and brighter. Just got to check the beam to pass the MOT next month. I will probably have to use some tape on the lens to get a flat dipped beam image. It seams a bit scattered atm but I expected that after reading that LEDs are better suited to projector lens rather than reflector ones.
  Only thing I've noticed is that only half the LED light cluster in the centre (V shaped one) is working. The near side half isnt on which is the same side that bulb had gone on. The bulb could have broke due to the condensation in the headlight.
 The new LED bulbs dont get as hot as the old halogens so dont heat up the water inthe headlight enough to condensate.

The problem with LEDs is that the light source isn't in the same proportion or exactly in the same place as the standard lamps. Even cheap normal lamps can be a bit scattered compared with quality ones. To be honest my MOT place doesn't bother that much as long as they work on both beams, only once did a new guy use a beam tester. I guess only if they are suspicious about something they bother with it.
