headlight swap

I just purchased a 2012 roadster and switched the headlights from the 55/60's to 95/100's. The low beam does not come on on either but the high beams work perfectly. Only the position light is on when the bike is running (what is that for anyways). Anyone have an idea?

Just a word of warning, those bulbs run hot and will probably turn your reflector black directly above the bulb. Ask me how I know.

Can't wipe this smile off my face!!!!

Thank you for your reply. The low beams on the new bulbs were both burnt out. Happened shortly after the install. Must be soemthing with the amperage from the bike. Will look into LED's. Any favorite brands?
