Vstar 250 light upgrade

Looking for an upgrade from the stock headlight on a 2008 vstar 250. I didn't see any mention of upgrades on the forum so I figured I would make a post.

Looking for a possible light bar and HIDs but would like some personal input on brands or mods from the forum members.

Thanks for your input!

i would stay away from HID. so much more trouble and money than LED now. about the same light output, but HID is just not worth it anymore. here are LED plug and play replacements so i would search for those.

Thank you for your reply. I have an LED bulb on my 2010 Raider and I agree with you on your point about the HIDs vs. LEDs. Do you have any recommendations as to a light bar?

you may want to start with kuryakyn or custom dynamics. they are among the most popular aftermarket sources for lights and accessories.
