LED Headlight Suggestion
« on: Aug 14, 2020, 10:11:54 am »
Looking for suggestions for LED Headlight options.  I have done some research, and see that there is a bulb out there that could be a direct replacement for the current stock setup.  Wondering how many people have tried this and how well it worked.  I also did see that we can buy an adapter for the 5.75 inch headlight and use pretty much any LED headlight out there.

    That bulb you suggested for the raider off Ebay, is that a direct fit for the raider?

      It is....the challenge is space in the bucket.  Also, you may get stator growl with less draw - awful sound.  If so, you'll need load resistors.

      A load resister like this?
