Led headlight

Post #1 by dartman1962 » Sun Jan 06, 2019 10:55 pm

Happy New year!
I am looking to see if anyone is running either a LED bulb conversion kit or a complete 7” replacement light assembly in the original 75 GL1000 headlight bucket.

I am not sure what will fit as it looks like their is a heat sink or fan assembly on the back of the bulb conversion kits; or even which bulb kits are any good?

That is exactly the problem. I did put one in my dresser, it had plenty of room in the fairing to flay out the heat sink. Have not sourced one yet for a nekid bucket

Over past few days, I have been looking at H4 LED's.

I was on Goldwing docs & found a bulb supplied by Electrical connection. I called them today to get the dimensions of the bulb. After doing so, one of my co workers came a long with a H4 LED bulb, the dimensions were within a 1/16" of an inch.

Tonight I removed the headlight installed the bulb put it back together including a correct size
block of wood, :lol: for the driver & it all fits!

Here is some pics of the sample bulb & a pic of the lights.

Sorry i could not get the pictures turned.

I have also added these driving lights

I am going to order this kit from Electrical connection.

If you look up Propav8r's build thread, he used a LED sealed beam headlight that fits nicely in a naked bucket, and without the need of cooling fans, etc. It has a nice big heatsink that is the backside of the sealed beam. I used the same headlight on my last build. Was very pleased with that light. It is a little unconventional looking, so it may or may not work for you.

It looks good! if you are making it into a naked bike cafe type bike, but I want to have the headlight look stock, so i will just go with a bulb up date.
