The bike got its first ecomod yesterday! Good for essentially no MPG boost, I put in a fancy dancy LED headlight bulb. I noticed my lowbeams were shot on my first trip of the year, so I figured I'd throw in a LED to get a few more lumens which is always welcome on bike.

Fitting it was a bit fun since its pretty tight in the headlight housing.

Old H4 bulb.





New LED H4 bulb.








In order to get enough room, I had to put the electrical connector out the back of the housing.





So, I decided to wrap it up and tape it as best I could to avoid water getting in the connection.





Overall, it'll work good. The high beam doesn't work the greatest, but the low beam works quite well.
