What is the highest watt bulb you can put in? Mine came with shitty 20w bulbs and I remember someone saying that 50w bulbs melted the plastic. So what's the highest I can go? Anybody know?

i ran 50w bulbs in my old one, never had any problems. but, i also modified the bulb holders to let heat get out behind the bulb.

nope. i got the setup from a shop i used to work at off a wrecked bike. it didn't have the cups that normally hold the bulbs in, so i made some aluminum brackets to hold them in, and got some plugs from a hardware store (they're the same bulbs used in alot of track lighting). basically the whole back of the bulb was exposed, so it didn't trap the heat in there, thus melting the plastic.
