    Lightbulb LED'S - REPLACEMENT BULBS & / OR AUXILIARY LIGHTS

    Hi

    I appreciate it has probably been done to death but talking about death I've just come back home having lit my way with my GSA 1200's (2012) 2 candle power light - might as well strap a torch to my head.

    So - first question, could anyone recommend reliable LED replacement bulbs for both high and low beam lights; I need less dull yellow tarmac and more white/blue white so I can see the mud patches.

    Also, I would like to fit auxiliary lights, the original BMW ones look alright but again there's not a lot hitting the road. Can I replace the bulbs in them with LED or are there any no too expensive but very bright alternatives that anyone would recommend.

    Your replies will hopefully be illuminating.

    Cheers

    I went down the les wassel hid route, dip is excellent as for main, I doubt anything can make it like it should be.

    I'd spend money on dip, and unless it's a buy one get one free, not bother about main beam.

    Is it extra light to fill in dip or long range spots you're needing ?

    To be honest its both - I had a Triumph Trophy SE before this and the foreground and distance were brilliantly lit and you could ride at night with confidence, not so the GSA (a bike I prefer in every other way)

    I guess I'll start with spots for the distance but with prices ranging from 5 to 350 it doesn't make choosing easy apart from Im not spending 350!!
