Thanks for the heads up on this. I was about to order a new LED headlight with a fan. But now will look at an alternative.

just use LED light bulb with no fan on them, they work good they are less money than the one with a fan, you can carry a second one for emergency I always do ;) ebay have one 7" Headlight LED Halo Ring + 4.5" Passing Lamps For Kawasaki Vulcan VN 500 750 I ask the guy and he say it will work on the 1700 Vulcan voyager that is a set, or just go for the LED bulb no fan that work good to and is less money

For some reason the forum says I cant edit because I am over my edit limit for 10 days. It has been months since I edited a post.

Anyway, updating this post, I got the rivco LED headlight replacement which has a fan and I get zero DC fan noise from it. I am very pleased with the light and I have at least 20k miles with it now.

If you have a headlight with a fan that is affecting your radio, you can probably solve it with a ground loop isolator and/or a filter. Could be cheaper than spending the money on another headlight, especially if you can't get your money back on the one with the fan.
