so heres a question for my fellow shadow riders….is it possible to put an led headlight in without doing a bunch of rewiring?

as long as you get an h4 led bulb, there will be no rewiring.

i have the 7000 lumen version of that cyclops bulb, and my only complaint about it, they seemed to have now fixed. there was very little difference in the hi-lo beams.

grilledcheese you should post up a couple of pics of hi-lo beam. this is a great bulb and was plug and play. no headlight adjustments or wiring changes.

i’ve been wanting led’s for my sabre’s main light and light-bar, but not pulled the trigger yet… i bought a case of hella h4’s last year for less than $2/bulb… and i still have enough to keep me in standard bulbs for years (even if i change them out annually), so dropping big bucks on an led which may or may not be a “good one”… just isn’t happening yet, for me.

i did buy opt7 brand h11’s for my cage’s fog lights a couple years ago (snagged a set from amazon warehouse deals for less than $20)… they were whiter, and maybe a bit “brighter”… at least i won’t have to worry about changing those hard-to-reach lamps any more, so there’s a plus?

i replaced every bulb on the shadow with led. not to get brighter lights (though that was the case with most of them), but to lower the overall current draw. our shadows don’t have the most robust charging systems to begin with, and the led bulbs really help.

i run led signals and brake lights on all my bikes primarily for this reason every watt saved is a good thing, but it also doesn’t hurt to have a brighter light that doesn’t get dim over time, nor have to be changed often!

ok well thanks for all the input. it was just a thought like putting in the daymaker headlight. i have a led light bar but it looks kinda silly with 2 leds and a regular headlight lol just want brighter and matching hahahaha

check the forums for discussions on the daymaker light. i recently saw a couple of threads where modifications to the light housing may have been required. can’t recall what model of the shadow it was, but it might be worth a few of your minutes to confirm that it’s a plug and play for your model.
