    I have led headlight bulbs in both of my gen.1 FZ1's. Much brighter, and hopefully cars can see the brighter lights, as I come into their field of vision.

      I upgraded to HID years ago, 6000k. Great lights, until one began to fail to fire initially. The only way to get it back was to cycle ignition off/on, which I would do at low speeds on the road at times. Sucked, plus all the extra wiring, ballast mounts, etc.

      It was a happy day when I switch to LED. Ripped out all the HID crap, with dedicated wiring all the way to the battery. Popped LED's into place. Done. Something off ebay EFlyguy recommended. Great lights, much better than stock, better than the HID, without being overly bright. Good pattern too. I think those were 5000k, so not much of that blue tint.

        I too have LEDs for my bike. When it comes to them you get what you pay for. There are some decently bright LEDs that are fairly inexpensive but don't skimp if you want brightness and a long life too.

          I am running LEDs that are as white as you can get. Always on high beam, too.

              I bought a pair of LEDs from Superbrightled.com about five years ago and they are still as bright as when new and it was only $39 for the pair and no fans or huge heatsink.

                I wish I could remember, but I am sure they have improved since then. Years ago. I got the whitest ones I could.

                  I've used these on multiple bikes and have had no issues. They fit under the dust caps, because there is no fan.
