LEDs aren't designed to take alot of heat from the headlight bulbs and you need to get ones that have a wide light pattern like a regular bulb.

Daylight performance is weak!

Angel eye bulbs

Actually you need a focused beam like a flashlight. You can order stock bulbs from auto camping, (or through us at napa) with bulb # 64113 osram or you can order the whole thing for like $40 each.

Another option is Lumens has 2 types of LED upgrades. one is 200 lumens and the other high power is 960 lumens. You can buy these from Overdrive.
