Thinking about these for driving lights.

I wanted to get your guys opinion on these bulbs before I spent the money on them for replacing the driving lights on my 09 VV, do you think the fan will cause feedback in the stereo system?

I have an LED headlight which has a fan. No problem with feedback on either bike (Honda Sabre and 2010 Voyager) I've had it install in.

The link you gave was to a headlight, not a driving light. The pattern difference between an incandescent bulb and an LED bulb is not as critical on driving lights, but I would not use the bulb in that link for a headlight. The triangular LED bulbs like this: H13 252W 25200LM PHILIPS LED Headlight Kit Hi/Low Beam Bulb White 6000K Power produce a pattern that is almost the same as the incandescent bulbs. Definitely go with one that uses Philips or Cree LEDs, too.

Installed:
RAM mount for TomTom Rider 400 (with anti theft module)
6000k LED Headlight & Spots; Kisan Headlight Modulator (works with LEDs),
__Brake Light Modulator, LED License Plate Holder
Longer Kickstand
Dobeck EJK 3.0
Lucky Mirror Extenders
Misc. RAM Mounts for Cup Holder, SPOT, Phone, etc.
Chuckster BAK, Trailer Hitch and Cooler Rack
Wiring for Trailer
Ray's Throttle Mod
Things to do:
Drilling Baffle Plates (Maybe)
Paint HF Tag Along Trailer to Match Bike

I have that style for my low/high and it is a very nice light for the money! I have a matching set for my driving lights but still unsure if I'm going to install the driving lights.
