LED bulbs for front, rear, assist

Recommended Posts

I did a search on here to see if anyone else had posted on this subject but found nothing.

 

Has anyone replaced their stock bulbs with LED equivalents? All my stock bulbs work - but I've wondered if there would be any benefit in using LEDs.  I certainly noticed the difference on my Subaru.

  • Assist 12v 45w (34901-HN2-000)
  • Tail 12v 5w x2 (34351-657-921)

With a little help from my new found friends on here, we found LED equivalents (model specific) :

Let us know how the headlight bulbs work without a heat sink, which your linked headlight bulbs don't have.  Tech may be better now.  But when I experimented with hi/low LEDs for my 06 yamaha rhino several years ago, I found was that the bulbs without the heat sink were not actually very bright.  To look at them head on, they seemed to be bright but that was just an illusion caused by the whiter color of the leds.  To drive around at night, they were very near useless.  But when I got some leds with a heat sink and a fan and they were awesome.  The 06 rhino had an oddball bulb and I had to take two old rhino bulbs and dremel out the ring and install it on the leds so they would fit the housing.  In the end, they worked great.

 

There are some out now with a heat sink but without a fan that a lot of can am people use with good luck.

 

For tail lights, non heat sinked bulbs were all that were required for me.

Still considering and researching at moment - including your experiences 🙂 And you're right - the tech improves each year.
