LED headlight?

Postby 09met on Fri Feb 23, 2018 9:48 pm

Alright, I have read on this forum that any changes that increase the electrical load can mess up the ECM. How about getting a brighter headlight while drawing less power - has anybody tried this? The main thing I worry about on these is not being seen from front or rear.

IDK if I could fit a 7" round LED into the general location of the stock headlight. There are lots of round 4.5" led lights but it seems they are either a "work light" beam or a "driving light" beam.
Thanks,

To clarify, I am referring to a drop in replacement light with new housing. Not just a bulb replacement. Like this one for example. If I had a plan for mounting, electrical sensitivities would be my only remaining concern...

Btw, the cost range of these don't really apply to scooters, but the adaptive concept is pretty damn awesome: http://www.jwspeaker.com/blog/new-led-m ... adapative/

Bueller??

I was hoping someone would give me some confidence that using a lower wattage headlight would not screw up my EMC.

A lower power draw won't mess up the ECM.

Any update, OP? Did you change your headlight into a LED one?
