I apologize if this subject has been previously addressed. I looked but could not find any reference to this subject.

I am wondering if anyone has made a conversion to their headlight to LED lighting. I am hoping that by doing so I can have brighter (more noticeable) lights. If so, any advice regarding the process.

Thank you for your valued assistance.

Thanks Arkainzeye. The video clip provided me with much needed and appreciated information. Guess I will stay (at least for now) with my present "stock" headlights.

If you haven't tried it all ready, search for "alternate headlights"....there're a ton of posts in there. I put a set of LED's on my 2010 Vision and am real happy with the difference. It's been long enough I can't tell you which set I used but my guess is that they...along with a couple other brands....are in the thread if you read it through. As much as I like my replacement lights, I'll tell you that they the pattern is still not as good as a set of LED's with len's built specifically for use with LED's would be. I'd buy another set in a heartbeat though.

I converted my CCT to the factory led and it is definitely​ brighter. The video doesn't do it justice. The only thing I wish was that the pattern was different. The pattern is exactly the same as the factory light which is terrible. I added some led spotlights to help with the poor high beam pattern.

I highly recommend the Clearwater Darla running lights. They are adjustable; however, when you turn on the hi-beam, they go to max lights (2000+ lumens each). They mount at the wheel and turn night into day. They are a little pricy, but worth it. https://www.clearwaterlights.com/products/darla-vision

I finally found led bulbs (H4) that I like , not just in terms of brightness but more importantly in Beam Pattern.. I've had them for 1 week so far . The housing is made for alum , has a passive heat sink which means, NO moving parts to block air flow &/or fail and then make the light (s) fail due to over heating... putco Silver-lux H4. Got them in Amazon alot cheaper ... the beam pattern is perfect .. no glaring on coming cars OR police ... here is a example of what i am talking about . https://youtu.be/SQF5ESBHLrw.

So there is a video on you-tube of a Vision owner trying to install LED bulbs on his Vision. It takes him something like a 1.5 hours to do it, with alot of aggravation.

I guess my question to you is, how difficult was it for you to install your LED bulbs? I would like to have LEDs but the process looks horrible trying to get at the bulbs, blindly.
