Change to LED Lights

There have been lots of LED headlight pics posted so I started this thread to show the other bulbs that can be changed to LED's. We have already changed our headlights over to Opt-7 LED's. Pics to come when I get the bikes outside.

@Shadowangel57 got some LED bulbs to replace the three indicator lights on the triple tree and the licence plate bulb. We are both impressed with the light output from these bulbs. They are well worth the $6 cost.

Change to LED Lights

I just bought led bulbs for the dash back lights on my Beemer. Also decided to try a HID headlight rather than LED just to see the difference. I've got factory HID's on one of my trucks and they are nice, so I'd thought I'd give it a shot.

I think I paid a total of $22 for 12 dash lights and $60 for the HID kit that was recommended my many on a Beemer forum.

Those license plate lights are so bright you may get a ticket for having a blinding WHITE light shining on the rear.

It is not as bright as the reflection on the plate makes it look,,,I had set the camera light metering before I turned the light on so I could show how much brighter the led was compared to the incandescent bulb. Will get a pic with the camera metering the light while it is on.
