would you care to elaborate on that?? i just tried putting them in, and it seems like two metal prongs on the back of the bulb are too close, they need to be further apart in order to be plugged into the adapter. what do i do now? sorry for the newbish questions, im new at this.

the little side “parking/marker” lights on the outer edges (when you are looking at the motorcycle directly head-on are t10 bulbs. if you search ebay, you should be able to find them. try searching t10 led or t10 led smd and you should find plenty.

the high and low beams are both h7 halogen bulbs.

at first glance (if you just un-clip the “bulbs” and pull them out of the headlight fixture), it appears they are two different sizes where they mount into the socket (even though they actually are both h7 bulbs). this is because on the low beams (the two inner projector lights), the h7 bulb seats directly into the metal socket of the headlight housing.

on the high beams, the bulb first plugs into a little plastic adapter thing – which is actually slightly larger than the h7 socket – and then this adapter plugs into the wiring harness and seats into the socket with the retaining clip.

you can probably pickup those adapters via partzilla.com if you need them. i’m not sure what size bulb (if any) fit the hole/harness without them.
