Does anyone use a PnP led headlight?

Hi guys, My ride is Vulcan 900, anyone used or using a led bulb on it?
I had used halogen/Xenon/HID lights, I am very satisfied with HID, it has a good output and throw out longer than halogen. But now I want to change my broken HID to led. any guidance?

I like the pose riding a Vulcan, Cool!

I'm using this one and am quite happy with it...except that I could not re-install the rubber boot. I don't ride in the rain and after about 8 months so far it does not seem to be an issue.

Thank you, I just checked the light, it's looks great, but 4000lm too bright? I dont know, the HID I'm using is 2000lm, so I think the lumens like my before is ok.

I just replaced my HID with an LED bulb simple install no more external ignitor on the frame and the beam pattern is great. I was not able to get the boot on without it covering the fan. So I left it off.

I'm not sure about the 900 specifically, but the H4 in both of my Vulcans are used in many cars. Easily found at any auto parts store, or even Walmart.

I just put these on my 900. They are great.




Need this adapter for the headlight



Driving lights plug and play into a Kawasaki OEM light bar.

The lights can be bought individually from many places but I found this package on Amazon to be a good price.

i just bought an LED bulb from XKglow on amazon for $39.99 and got it the next day. very easy install, bulb even includes a fan to help with cooling, i was also able to put the rubber boot back on.
