Default Would someone please confirm headlight bulb size?

The bulb size is not listed in the manual. And I've searched and I'm pretty sure its H4, but I just wanted to confirm.

This is for a 2001 Katana 600. The headlight bulb is H4?

Thanks!

All of the following will fit the stock fitment:

H4
9003
HB2

What's the difference?/
H4 is a general 2-fillament halogen bulb with a specific base.

HB2 is the same basic bulb with the same base, but with a more strict criteria on the focal specs -- HB2 is a German standard that predates H4, because when it was brought out, replacable halogen bulbs weren't approved for US use (at the time, sealed headlights were spec in the USA).

9003 is the internation spec name for HB2, and is interchangable with H4.
