    Get the headlight glass cleaned and change the beams. Check the reflectors in the lights too maybe there chrome is ruined or something.

    Go to an electrician to install an additional relay for each head light (problem being the internal switch collects carbon deposits due to heavy load thus weakening the current supply to lights) . Also ask him to renew the chrome and clean the glass. Also do what @arid suggested

    this was the problem with me too. nstaled a relay. the problem is basically that over the period of time the internal resistence of the wires increase and therefore they dont get their required input. new wires are conected from th battery and a relay compeletes the circuit which is controled by the older wires.
    btw the chrome ans glass can be faulty to as mentioned by adil bhai
    its all about power to weight ratio...

    Good suggestions regarding relay installation. I was asked by a mechanig to go the same route and the results were definitely like day an night. As a test, I would suggest powering up the headlights directly by the battery first to see if there's increase in the light output, if so the relay solution would work, otherwise it could be the headlight assembly, chrome etc.
