Brutale 750 headlamp bulb types?

Before I go insane, could someone tell me the type of headlamp bulbs I need, as in H4, H7 etc? Owners manual doesn't tell me, 2 dealers I contacted can't tell me, only the MV part numbers, even Philips can't tell me!!!!
Need this to order some Philips Xtreme Vision Moto bulbs, which I'm reliably advised will transform the headlamp performance and light output.

They are standard automotive bulbs, but one of them has an adapter that the bulb is plugged into making it look like something special. It's not. Take the adapter off. I think it is H7 but it's been a while since I replaced one so I forget.

Take them out and have a look. Easy to do.

While you're at it, make sure the glass is well attached!!

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Thanks. Not where the bike is ATM, and I want to get these on order, so if someone does know the type, I'd be grateful.
Glass has been rebonded, it was one of the first things I was advised to check when I came here.

Low beam is H7, High beam is H9. It is cast into the glass itself. You can see them in this picture by the high beam bulb kindly uploaded by another MVAgusta.net-er.

H7
H9
5w

Ironically, it's impossible to find these in the manual. They are molded right into the headlight glass itself if you look closely.

For some unknown reason MV used an H4 socket for the low beam.......with an H7 bulb,
thus the silly adaptor

So, finally sorted this out. The H9 is used due to lack of space in the headlamp housing at the bottom. The H9 is an automotive fog light, or driving light type, the integral 90 degree connector making it more compact. I tried to pry off the connector on the bulb in my headlight but it seemed reluctant to move, even slightly.
Not many high performance bulb options in H9, fortunately PIAA have one, so I'll use that, even though it's not cheap as they aren't available singly! The H7 is easy, Philips do their Xtreme Vision product in that variant, so I'll go with that.
Fingers crossed the headlight is improved, alot!
