Lightbulb Headlight Modulator & LED bulbs

Forgive me if this topic has been discussed. (I searched with no luck)

I swear by my headlight modulator. I FIRMLY believe it makes me more visible but I would also like to upgrade my headlight to a brighter LED. Do any of you tech wizards know if you can use a headlight modulator with LED bulbs? And if so how difficult would the wiring be?

Lastly: I have not picked a new headlight yet so recommendations are greatly welcomed. If I can kill two birds with one stone.

Thank you.

BTW: this is my first post in 10 years at WT. I FINALLY got my bike out of storage......yes it HAS been THAT long!

Good to be back!

Welcome back! They make modulators specifically for LED bulbs nowadays. I saw them on Hypertech's (I think) website not lokg ago.

I did the minor mod to fit in a Trucklite LED, which I really like. It pulses a bit without a modulator, I suspect because of normal jitters on the line being enough to pulse an LED. I haven't bothered to fix it, because I agree that having a changing light makes you more visible.
