LED headlight and corner lamp conversion

Just swapped out the dull halogen and incandescent corner lamps on the Z650. HUGE difference and really easy to install. This should be fairly straight forward for about anyone who is interested.

The main lamp is pretty much a 9003 series H4, just like in most autos, but I chose one designed more toward motorcycles. Weatherproof, slightly compact, etc.
The corner markers were your run-of-the-mill 194/168 type bulb, but tower style Cree LED.

Check it out!

That is a pretty powerful light! Thanks for sharing the video. I have the repair manual but sometimes it's nice to be able to watch what you need to do.

Here's an on road comparison, before and after. This was taken in the middle of the day on the Blue Ridge Parkway, going through the various tunnels. Crazy difference between stock and the HO LED lamp! I noted the comparison timeframe within the first couple minutes in the video if you want to skip ahead.
