LED light bulb?? Anyone

Hi has anyone installed an LED light bulb in the headlight and if so which one and is it worth it?
The halogen do not cut it for me and buying a whole new $500 unit is out of the question.

Can someone post pics of before and after for the Bobber

Thanks

Search for “H4NF” and you’ll see some posts about the Pathfinder replacement LED bulb.
It’s a very good light and well worth the $65+ cost. Can also be found on EBay if you’re in Europe.

If you replace the main bulb to a white LED, I also recommend replacing the small parking bulb with a white beam (instead of OEM yellow).
It’s a small T10 bulb and can be seen here:

Search “headlight comparison” to find my before and after pics with the Pathfinder H4NF LED bulb replacement. I bought this on the recommendation of eisen77, a VERY respected 😀 member and contributor to our forum. Works great and with a little fiddling you can get the boot back on to protect from moisture.

I have posted pics on here somewhere in the past before and after, I bought a pair of LED bulbs for Ł20, with fiddling they fit a treat and the brightness is noticeable. Also they are amazing bits of kit, I sadly nearly started to collect them, but thankfully sense got the better of me and decided not to.

I bought the Sylvania Ultra H4 which is a direct replacement for the stock bulb and tripled my light output. It was like $30 for 2 lamps, no heat issues same wattage as stock. Many others have gone this route, I have a thread on it if you search!
