Are you looking for brighter lights or a certain color?

I use a set of piaa replacement lenses that convert to H4 bulbs, then you can put whatever bulb in that you want.

For brighter lights, upgrade the wiring to the lights, itís a bit too small of a gauge for the current draw, you can get dramatically brighter lights with one gauge size thicker. Also upgrade the connector to the light itself.

I use an H4 conversion housing and IPF Fatboy bulbs. Good headlight and much better than stock. It has the traditional yellow/white coloring. However there are lots of other types of bulbs out there. What I have found on my car is that cheap doesn't pay. Most of the LEDs are 6000K, which is a bright white. 5500K is what standard headlights are and are easier to see with at night. My light bar is 6000K and is just as bright as daylight, but I like the color of my headlights better

I run a set of fat boys too love them! But that being said in the 3 or 4 years since finishing Mort, I think I have barely over an hour of use on them, I just donít see the point of having bright headlights in the city, I just use my driving lights.

everything is an improvement! LEDs are much cheaper than they were 18 months or so ago when I did mine, would definitely take a look at them.

i'm running H4 bulbs on PIAA harness IIRC

I'm running some of the cheap Chinese knockoff LED headlights.. I love the output them.. but hate the flickering that they end up with.. so think since I don't drive it as much @ night.. that I'm going to swap it back over to the H4 Hella housings I have and the upgraded harness I'm already running... and once I get back into having cash flow again, I'll look into going with either nice LED bulbs in the housings or just keep running the 80/100w Hella bulbs I have..

Anything that is brighter than my headlight will so I'm going to try this conversion housing and see what it does for me thank you for the help
