I've never liked the way the side lights/running lights/whatever they are look on the versys. They're very yellow, and due to that, they appear dim, even though they are running at the proper brightness.
Using this handy guide from GE, I found out that the versys side lights are W5W lamps: http://www.gelighting.com/LightingWe...m181-18015.pdf
Turns out that the W5W bulbs, which are hard to find, are cross-compatible with 194 automotive bulbs, commonly available in LED form at your local Wal-mart (and a bunch of other places you probably have near you: http://www.pilotautomotive.com/dealers.html
), so I picked a pair up for $7
They are similarly sized to the stock bulbs and have the same contact fitting
All you have to do is pull off the side body plastic that runs from the headlight to the tank on each side. You can access the side lights from there, no removal of the headlight needed.

And the complete set
So for about $7 you can get rid of those yellow bulbs and go with something closer to the headlight, temperature-wise, not a bad setup for the cost
