Default Headlight bulb upgrade?

i have one of my my high beam bulbs burned out on my '12 sno pro 500. is there an upgrade bulb any one has tried? something like a silverstar or one of the zenon type bulbs? seems like there would be an improvement over the gm type 880 bulbs that come stock.

Do you have a P/N for these bulbs for the Sno Pro?

Okay so I put 885 bulbs in my low beans and my low beam bulbs in my high beams. The 885 are higher watt bulbs and uncapped. Being uncapped, they throw light forward instead of just backwards towards the reflector. Makes a much nicer pattern, I'm actually really happy with them now
