So I recently swapped to a bucket headlight from aztec8. Everything is wired up correctly, I think. Works. Anyway I went out on a ride last week And the low beam burnt out. Took it out today and ran the high beam. By the time I got home it was out. WTF. I switched to a h4 connection when changing to the bucket. I put in a relay to switch from high to low. So when the high is on, the low shuts off and doesn't stay on. Could it be the relay? All fuses are good. Maybe bad bulbs from Aztec 8? Any thoughts ?

check the voltage (thru your RPM range), your stator might be going out (getting to much power kills bulbs fast)

I will check that. Just weird that I never had a problem before switching headlights. People do it all the time without problems. I will check the voltage but I will change the bulb before the stator. Maybe the lig came with a cheap bulb.

could have been cheap bulbs not able to handle the 14 volts

Check that it is mounted firmly and there is no vibrations in the headlamp.

Vibration when the bulb is on, weakens the halogen filament and hence why low beams die faster then highs... just like in your case.
