It's nice to be back, been away from the forum for quite some time..

I know there are a bunch of threads about LED headlight bulbs and lots of different experiences, concerns about beam pattern, reflectors, lumens, power draw, etc. A cursory search didn't turn up anything newer than about 3 years.

I'm wondering, where are things currently with replacing the halogen with LED bulbs on a Gen 2 Versys? I'm mostly interested in getting a longer lifespan. Changing the bulbs on that bike is a PITA!

I came across these today, any thoughts?

i used to have LEDs, but have reverted to Halogens. The light from LEDs just sprays without any focus. The OEM reflectors arent made for LEDs. Plus i try to keep my riding time limited to daylight hours.

The LED bulbs linked to are absolute crap, based on their design. Look for LED bulbs that position the emitters in the same position as a filament would be in an incandescent bulb.

Also, don’t look for application specific bulbs. All you need to search for is H7 bulbs. I’ve used Safego bulbs in the past, and now run Car Rover bulbs H7 LED Headlight Bulb, CAR ROVER...

Great beam pattern and very bright. They make auxiliary lights redundant.
