Burning out lights

Hi everyone I'm new to this. I have an XLT 600 and for some reason I keep burning out my headlight everytime i throttle it up.I put a brand new bulb in,it worked fine while idling,went to throttle it up and blew the the low beam right away,then tried the same with high beam and got the same results. Any ideas on what I should look for to fix this problem?

Not necessarily, at lower rpms the voltage is not so high as at WOT.
