Headlight conversion

I want to update my headlight bulbs on my 01 k1200lt. I've seen several on Amazon can anyone make a recommendation on which brand to use.

Re: Headlight conversion

There are several threads and a search will pull them up, along with lots of helpful information on how to do the conversion, a very simple task. I did mine years ago and remember it taking about an hour.

A good place to start.... HID bulb.

Re: Headlight conversion

Has anyone opted for LED rather than HID? The tech and performance is out there now.

Quite frankly, the HID on my bike is unimpressive (cannot imagine how poor the original was)
