Hello all!!!

I'm new here. I hope your day is good so far.
I would like to get new LED light for my bike and wonder if any of you know what is a good choice when it comes to getting a new LED headlight that works good and it is easy to install, without braking the bank.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Welcome from Columbus, OH! There is a ton of information on this site regarding lighting. There are some good threads by @bevo1981 and others that help with lighting. Myself, I installed a LED headlight and honestly I love how bright it is but I am not impressed with how it lights up the road. Upon further investigation this is a common problem if you do not address the other components of the headlamp assembly. I know others will be weighing in to welcome you and they will no doubt have additional information. In the mean time snoop around and enjoy the forum and get your camera ready as many will be asking to see pics of your bike.

From other people's opinions, OPT7 Fluxbeam X.2 is a good choice for 1300 headlamp. Just remove the back of the rubber boot to allow cooling.
I have one in, but have only used it in the garage for now. (Still too cold for night time riding). Also installed aux fender lights, so I'll safely find my way home. There's lots of info and ideas here !

you can help this by installing a proper LED projector housing. LED bulbs do not react and reflect from the stock relfector bowl the same way as halogen and need their own projector to better throw light down the road.
