I upgraded my headlights to LEDs over the weekend. I was able to fit them in (even with their cooling fan) without altering the headlight caps on the back of the headlight enclosure. They look much better because they are a true white color and they put out an amazing amount of light.

I purchased these off amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00VNBEUMO/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

One problem I had was that the connector that comes with the kit for the H7s has a hard plastic cover over the two prongs that I had to cut off with wire cutters in order to fit the prongs into the connector. (Look at the 6th picture on Amazon to see what I'm talking about)

I was able to squeeze all of the wiring in around the cooling fans and reattach the back covers. I did have to remove the weatherstrip seal on them, but I don't see that being too big of an issue.

I also replaced the triangular marker light while I was at it, and that alone gives the bike a much better look (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B017VORB7M/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

Looks good. monitor for heat issues or melting. You technically have a convection oven on wheels now hehe
Hmmmm.......

Heat source+circulating fan+enclosure=convection oven. >:D

Just keep monitoring it. I'm sure my 55 watt HID is putting out as much or more heat.

In your pics, do you have the high beam light switched on or did you jumper the front lights? Looks great!
Thanks! I have the high beam switched on in all the unlabeled pics. In the ones where I labeled low beam when the view is from sitting on the bike, I do have the high beam switched off
