GL1800 low beam

Just realized my right front low beam is out on my 02.
Are the leds for them any good now or would my best bet be oem bulbs?
At least I am assuming its the bulb. Going to price out bulbs before I even attempt to tear down into it. Need to get the manual out to find out how to get into it

The LEDs are nice, just helped some friends install 2 sets today.

We installed one set of these; https://cyclemax.com/inc/sdetail/gl1..._kit/73/358810
And one of these; https://cyclemax.com/inc/sdetail/gl1...bulb/73/321792
When I did mine I got an automotive kit, same thing as this; https://cyclemax.com/inc/sdetail/gl1..._kit/73/302772 for about 1/2 the price.
Don't know about radio interference, I never listen to radio.

I don't listen to the radio either....


Dave,
I just read the description on the kit you used, you recall how my HID setup has a blank spot in the center? hits the ground and hits the trees.


Would this fix that problem?

my HIDs have not burned out yet, as you installed that oil pressure switch on them....

I imagine it would. Andy's, Chucks and my beams look real good shining on the wall. I have yet to ride at night since I put them in at least a year ago.

No music noise on the way to work this morning. Will give a night time report when that happens.
