Let me check, haven't listen to FM Am for years...lol
The LEDs are install by a headlight mod shop in China, let me see if I can open it up and check the brand. They were about $200 with parts and labor.

I've run into that when I bought fog light LEDs with ballasts - fans or fins style.


I've had good luck with these brands on Amazon. Currently using the following:

Low Beams: (might use them for fog lights too, offer multiple sizes)

I just got finished updating all my lamps to full LED. Love the results. Even removed the orange side marker and painted the surrounds Brabus Black and added Angel Eyes why I was in there.

Were your original headlights non-LED? This was an upgrade from non-LED to LED? If so, is all you have to do is buy LED bulbs and swap? Or was a kit involved to upgrade the sockets or something?

All smarts come from the factory with halogen bulb headlights. :)

Looks like jojomook got some drop in plug and play bulbs. They're an inexpensive mod that works and looks great!

What do you think the wattage difference is between the Halogen bulbs and the LED's?
I would do it to save even an ounce of energy from the traction battery, just 'cause I'm silly like that.

The fog lamps are LED by default though right?

My silver star ultra looks similar too your LED low beam??? and yes this is low beam
I have Ultras in everything I own, including my current Suzuki Burgman and a few previous cycles and scooters. May not be the absolute best and brightest but they have performed well over the long haul and have been plenty bright enough for me. Had a set of HIDs in my 451 but didn’t like them as much as the Ultras.

Not safe. Not legal. Would save energy, I must confess. LED DRL option but fog lights incandescent. Philips X-treme Vision +100% one of the highly rated bulbs, same energy use, higher output, con is shorter lifespan.
