LED or brighter headlight?

Post by acrmnsm »

I have seen some LED "upgrades" on ebay, the stock headlight feels a bit week compared to my 2010 XJ6.
Has anyone done this? Any good?

Yep upgraded to LED.

Specific units available for Motorcycles.

Mine pass MOT no problem... i.e. the beam pattern is correct.

The old school upgrade is to fit a ceramic bulb holder...

I think I just wondered if there was particular brand you had already bought that had proved reliable?

IIRC this is the one I use... Yes its a pack of 2 but I have more than 1 Storm so not an issue. You could always flog the 2nd one if you don't want it.
