    Hi All
    Thinking about changing my bulbs on the gen3 to led's (hi, low and side) and just wondered what you had all fitted? I would like brilliant white if poss with no modifying of std wiring. look forward to your recommendations, price and where to get them from.

    Cheers Dean

    The tech isn't there yet imo, not for direct replacement. The best upgrade remain HID kits imo on the low beamside.

    Basic issue with LED's is the distance they project light, its just not far enough, not enough lumens. I think one member had found some they rated but I'm not convinced enough.

    I just use Philips pure white, xenon, 55w bulbs.

    Thanks for the replies so far, I use some called night angle in my car and there good and I watched this on youtube and that put the idea in my head, don't use the bike at night so not bothered about light spread just to look more modern.
