Does anyone know if these are available in LED somewhere? I've searched Amazon, e-bay, and the Internet and didn't come up with anything. I recently upgraded my headlight to LED and would like to upgrade these as well. Thanks!

As they are sealed lights, I would assume you have to replace them with a similar unit, which will fit into the housing. Possibly something liek this:

I replaced my Yamaha passing light inserts with a DayMaker LED set, it just required some slight modification to get them to fit, essentially, modify the edge of the buckets slightly (had to make them a little thinner, as the edge of the LED lights was a tiny bit thicker, otherwise the outer ring would not close properly, and hence be not watertight anymore). Works just fine.

HTH, kind regards, Wim

Thank you wimg. I guess I was only looking for a direct replacement based on the 4449. I hadn't thought of simply looking for inserts that would fit in my housing.

So with the help of lesblank it looks like the PAR36 is the correct bulb. However, now I'm having a hard time finding a place to buy just 2 of them in a 12w 6000k LED. Amazon has them, but only if you buy 12 for $179.99. Anybody have any ideas on where to get just 2 for a reasonable price? Thanks!

Thank you all for the feedback. I was able to go directly to 12vmonster - one of the Amazon vendors - and purchase 2 at a good price.
