it’s a proprietary bulb number. it’s not a standard buld that you are going to find a direct fit led or anything for. you can use a h6m bulb, with minimsl modifications to the base of the bulb. but again, the cheap amazon leds bubls just look nice, they are bright 10ft in front of you, but crappy further out where you need the light.

there’s a reason just about every atv you encounter on the trails has an led lightbar on it. that being the fact the factory lights suck.

looking at the part numbers for the grizzly headlight assembly they are the same for +61404532026 on the partszilla site.

but all the kodiak’s are still just bulbs for all the years. and while i won’t say that you couldn’t retrofit the grizzly headlight into a kodiak i don’t know if it would look good at all.

fyi, ive been down this road. hense the reason i retrofit in bixenon hid bulbs.

the grizzly headlight assembly won’t fit in the kodiak without some serious modifications.

it could be done, but if your going to that trouble, there are much better options available

even though i’m replacing the current hids i have in my kodiak now, they severely outperform my 20″ light bar, not yo mention, it looks much nicer than haveing a big bulky bar stuck on there.

also as for the hid install, it took less time than installing the light bar as running the wires and switch. so a bar isn’t always the simplest, easiest answer.

i pulled the bar and use 2 tiny ridgid ignites instead. more compact, but still plenty bright.

the led retrofit that’s about to go in the stock location will be even better output than the current hids

oh, for the right ammout of money, i sure could. lol

actually i was kinda planning on doing it, once i start. i need to begin a loader from work and dig out my cargo trailer where my bike is stored. the guy plowing our driveway pretty much buried my trailer. lol

good thing i only live 1 minute from work. plan to borrow one of the small loaders to fit out back, my usual daily office space is far to large to fit in the driveway. lol

yeah, i like light bars, but there just isn’t really a goid place to mount on these bikes that looks good. my 2 little rigid ignites aren’t too bad, they are so small they aren’t really noticeable.

but yeah just the upgraded lights look so much cleaner

they say that with enough money you can do anything.

but i would say no, if you look at post # 7 above you will see the difference in the housings and mountings.

to get proper lighting the whole housing needs to be changed out. you can see the difference in light in this thread after i changed out my bulbs to led’s. i’m not sure if you saw the post or not but you were looking at the led’s off of ebay.

the led’s spread the light out more using the stock reflector where one that is designed for led’s would concentrate the light better.

i am wanting to change halogen bulbs too led bulbs in my 2018 kodiak, i can find led for every other model of yamahas or older kodiaks . has any one done this conversion and if so what led bulb # did you use. new to the group, i apologize if there has been a discussion on this topic before.

that’s the plan jim. lol

pretty sure i’m only going to need to drill and thread holes in the led heatsink for the mounting birds and then mount in the oem location where the original kodiak light housing is located. i may need some bolts also…. we will see
