Gentlemen... I have already completed this modification, however I thought that since visibilitity is such an important part of riding, and there can be many hard to specifically answer questions, to compile a list of questions for each headlight kit!
I used the Cyclops LED kit: https://www.cyclopsadventuresports.c...Kit_p_100.html
I found that this kit puts out more lumens = the bright stuff, than other kits for a relatively comparable price.
I own a Mk3 V, this kit is made for older versions of the V (I&II), and so the instructions are not exactly what you would call.... Instructions...
Overall, I have found this kit to actually be a liability, for those of us DIY'ers that may have limited tools and experiences swapping out headlights/LED conversions...
The following are my thoughts:
The bulb is VERY bright, and with fine tuning should serve the rider well for years... That said... This bulb is a PITA to install. Seriously.
I read the instructions multiple times, and ultimately threw them out because they simply do not apply to the Mk3 Versys. The plastic spacer that is supplied simply makes installation nigh on impossible, even AFTER removing the headlight fairing in attempt to make installation easier, GET RID OF IT. Ultimately, after I got rid of the plastic spacer, installation was made a LOT easier. There will still be some fandangling in order to properly seat and fit the bulb, but it will be made infinitely easier after getting rid of the plastic spacer, and with minor modification to the retaining clips, will still sufficiently hold the bulb in place. I personally ran into issues because I stripped the retention clip hole and thus was unable to properly secure the pivot point of the retention clip until I installed a larger thread screw.
The Mk3V headlight dust cover boot requires an uncomfortable amount of modification in order to make this kit work... And in future I would simply order dust covers with a hole cut out for the LED heat sink pre-cut out. This is partly in commendation to the Kawasaki engineers, they clearly meant the OEM headlights to last forever... However.. This makes aftermarket modification... annoying to say the least...
Overall... Would I recommend this kit? It is bright, to be sure, as 4,000 lumens is quite a lot of light... However the kit necessitates compromising the integrity of the weather(time)proof boot. I am very strongly considering buying generic automotive LED rubber boots to properly weather seal the bulbs... However I don't think I can recommend this kit in good conscience. I think money would be better spent on perhaps a lesser kit in terms of lumen output, which may perhas work better with the overall Mk3V kit.
Thanks for viewing!
