H4 Led Mod?

Was looking to pick up some spare hl bulbs to keep on the bike. And these H4 9003 led bulbs keep popping up. I would like to try them but idk if our headlight housing has room behind it for the cooling fins on the back of the bulb. Any of you have experience with these? Thx

My suggestion, don't do it with the stock 919 housing. It's horrid and known for light scatter which is useless to you can blind other drivers. Upgrade to an LED headlight unit that fits in the bucket or go the 599 bucket

Hmmm, I will check that out. Mean while what replacement bulbs are you guys running? I was thinking of silverstars or nighthawks.

Honestly, don't bother. The stock 919 headlight is such crap. Using an expensive halogen bulb mitigates the problem slightly, but you still get so much light scatter, and not where you need it most.
