848 / 1098 / 1198 Plug & Play LED Headlight (No Cutting)

After trying different brands of conversion kit and inquiries from many vendors, I finally got a set that will fit into the housing without any cutting. Finally got it from Amazon today !!! Got them installed for low and high beam =)

I am happy to share this with all you who wants LED as the stock one are pretty useless. However, I have not tested these bulb thoroughly since it is winter season here in Vancouver, BC. My bike will spend another 4 months in the garage.

As long as the dimension from the bottom of black mounting disc to back of barrel is 19mm, you'll be fine. These LEDs don't come with the cooling fan, so I don't know how it will perform when I ride them in summer. It comes with a mini ballast, and I was able to tuck them all into the housing.

With one side low-beam on, the current drop from 12.7V to 12.5V so it is not drawing much current. These are 6,000 lumens @ 6000K, the numbers are not as high as my HID, but they're significantly cooler and definitely brighter than stock halogen ! Anyway, Happy new year all !

This is awesome! Can't wait to see how the road tests turn out once winter is over.
