LED headlight

Picked up a cheap black LED headlight a week ago and finally got it all finished. Used the OEM mount, which I also painted matte black, just had to do some trimming on the surround. Other then that was plug and play. Haven't been on the road with it yet but looks much brighter then before.

I can't wait until someone makes a bigger headlight housing that bolts onto the oem mounting points.

Hey Illec,

How did it go? was visibility better than the stock bulb?

Could you link us the headlight?

Cheers!

Congrats on the LED install. It takes some work but looks a ton better, saves on energy, and 4X brighter than stock

Where can I get those fork boots?

Looks great! Painting the mount black looks so much better too.

Planning on testing on the road today but put out much brighter light in the garage. Here is the link to what I bought

They aren't meant for our specific bike but work well. Another member had linked it on another thread. Here is the link.

Krylon Fusion All in one Matte black


No sanding necessary, just spray! I did about 4 light coats.
