No one has jumped on your LED headlight question.
If you post it in the forum for your bike more people will notice it, and put the words LED HEADLIGHT right up front in the subject line, so it shows up in the recent discussion list on the right side of the page.
The subject comes up frequently. I put Sylvania Silver Star bulbs in my bikes, they are noticeably brighter than stock bulbs, but they have two drawbacks - they only last for about 5000 miles of riding (about once a year for me) and they are expensive. But the advantage is the filament is in the same place as the stock lamps, so the reflector works the way it should.
which brings us to the primary issue with LED replacement lamps: the LED element is not in the same spot as the lamp filament, and does not emit light in the same pattern, so if you use the stock headlight lens and reflector you will not get the correct focus of the light. Several people have done this "cheap" version of LED upgrade and were disappointed.
If you are going to get an LED headlight you really want the entire assembly: Bucket, reflector, lens... and then you can get some really impressive improvement over the stock headlight ... but... its going to cost you.
Since you need the lamp reflector assembly anyway it will be a better tradeoff for you.
another option is to use the stock headlight and bulb and add focused driving/passing lights, and tie them to your highbeams. There are small bullet lights for this that work very well.
If you start a thread in the general section for your bike you will get more answers to your question. The new rider intro page gets ignored by a lot of members.
