Looking on eBay, or at local auto parts shops you can often find HID kits to suit your bikes globe size. They take a bit of wiring and need a bit of room to mount the ballasts, but they make a great deal of difference if you do a lot of riding at night.
The alternative, of course, is to get a small set of driving lights fitted. I friend of mine had a set of small LED light bars fitted to the front of his KLX450 above the headlight shroud. They aren't too large, and have a small on-off switch on the handlebars linked to the headlight wiring. Best part is LED lights draw less current, and create less heat than conventional globes!
Hope that helps!

Poor headlights on rover 75

Yes you can. I bought led headlights for my 1948 fod. They are nice and bright. Before you replace your head lights check to make sure you have a good ground from the battery to the body.

Headlights aren't bright enough at night

Don't change to HID Xenon or Bi-Xenon unless you change the entire headlight unit, as your standard headlamp units are not designed for this. You will only end up blinding oncoming traffic, and your beam scatter will be all over the place.

Take your car to a servicing garage or dealer and ask them to check the headlight alignment. If you are still unhappy with the headlight performance, there are plenty of quality halogen bulbs out there - just look at the Philips or Osram automotive range.

1985 Fiero: headlight doors will not open

Your headlight motors are bad. Pre-87 cars had a terrible problem with this, upgrade them to the 87-up style. Firebird/Corvette motors are the same.

I just got a new (to me) ST2. I do have a couple of questions though. I'd like to improve the low beam. Has anyone run an 85w bulb? Did you need a relay? The bike currently has a Ferracci pipes and chip. It currently smells pretty rich. I've been slowly backing off the trip pot but at least at idle it's still stinky rich. Are the Ferracci chips known to run rich? Thanks.I have the FBF Forza pipes and a FBF stage 1 chip and my '98 ST2 runs pretty good. Actually night-and-day between it and my stock ST2. Actually I believe it runs a little lean with the airbox mod because it lean pops on hard decel. If I crack the throttle a little it won't do it, though. The bike doesn't smell rich at all. As for a headlight improvement, I'm a cheap bastard. After cleaning the lens of the OEM headlight and improving the light a little bit, I still haven't convinced myself to buy Paul's headlight upgrade....but I'd like to....I'm just too cheap. The rare occasions that I am riding at night, my wife is always with me on her bike, so I let her lead and I either chase her taillight or actually use her headlight when looking through the curve. In a nutshell, just shy of adding some ugly-ass PIAA lights to the ST2, you'll need to buy Paul's upgrade or just deal with the crappy OEM light.....I guess some of us kind prefer to have something in common with mushrooms.,,,

1999 plymouth grand voyager headlight.. How does one see the road at night when the liht covers can't be cleaned to let out the light?

Replace the headlight assembly. Aftermarket headlight assemblies sell for about $60 to $70. Upgrade your bulbs to brighter, whiter lamps to increase visibility.
