How many watts can our stock headlight harness bear?

I'm just curious. So many people run around with 70 90 watts bulbs. And they don't melt! yet, some peeps run 80 watts, and they lose a harness.

i upgraded my harness to hold 80 watts, but it still did not work, i just run oem sylvania headlights until i can afford hids, i bough like 5 pairs of nokya, etc. bulbs and they always blew, never touched the bulb either, but i heard piaa's are the best way to go without going hid...just my .02 cents

oh and the stock wattage i believe is 55w for low beam and 80w for high beam...but im running 100w high beams for over a year and they didnt blow yet, but i hardly use them, all the poeple ive talked to say that 80w on 55w harness is not a good idea
