Has anyone else tried running brighter headlights in their motorcycle?

I currently use an 80/100W light but noticed that the socket and rubber boot have melted a little from the extra heat. I've bought a replacement socket but haven't used it yet.

The spade connectors are probably rated at 5A. The brighter lights would be pulling about 7.5-8.5A. The wire capacity should be fine but I don't want to keep replacing sockets if I don't have to.

Just looking for some comparisons.
