Outlander L 500 with LED bulbs!

Swapped out my regular bulbs for some LED's. I really like them, they are just as bright as HID's, and there is no headaches with ballasts and whatnot. Ordered them off eBay from Formula J-87. Negotiated the price with them and everything. Quick customer service and surprisingly fast shipping considering I'm in Ontario and they came from somewhere near Sam Francisco. $40 American, $10 shipping! They ate hs1, dual beam, 20 watt low beam, 28 watt high beam. You get two bulbs in the kit. The ones you get are h4. An hs1 is a low powered h4 so they fit. Because they're LED's, they're already low powered so no worries there. I got 6000k colour temperature, any higher and they'll start looking blue, which I didn't want. However they do come with a tinting film to make them the colour you want! Also a built in heat sink. ...they take a little mcguyvering to get in but they look great!

"Mcguyvering "

Some things needed to be done. Once removing the rubber boot from the fixture and unplugging the connector, you can see why I had to remove the boot...all that wire plus the connector, just wouldn't fit. The hardest part was to get the led bulb to do its twist lock action when connecting it to the stock mounting bracket. ..took a lot of cursing..the original mounting bracket is what holds the bulb in position in the fixture (light housing). It too does a twist lock action. The bulb itself has a piece that you gotta push and turn to get off, that's what locks it on the mounting bracket. This is also where I caked liquid electrical tape for weather sealing. Sealed both sides. Once I was satisfied that weather couldn't penatrate around the bulb or anywhere through the mounting bracket, I put it in place on the bike. All electrical connections were made at that point and again sealed with liquid electrical tape. I also wrapped all these connections with regular electrical tape for added insurance. I zipped tied everything in place to tighten things up and that was it. I did drill a little hole in some useless plastic so I could mount it more secure with an extra zip tie. . Hope this helps
