Replacing headlight bulb

I have a 2019 GSXS 1000Z. I stopped in and purchased a Pathfinder LED for better night time visibility. This was recommended as a replacement. After getting it home I first noticed that the connector was 2 prong instead of 3. Plus the fact that it didn’t have the ring that allows it to sit in the housing. I have looked online trying to find an LED replacement and everything I have seen has the 2 prong connectors. Any suggestions on a replacement? I have about a 70 mile drive and now that daylight savings is here I have to drive at night. The stock one that came with it just does not provide a lot of lighting. Thanks in advance.

I trimmed a little of the rubber gasket but otherwise went right in. I have been running it several months with no issues. I had a hid headlight in the hayabusa and it was brighter than the led in the gsx, but trying to hide the ballasts in the hayabusa was hard enough with fairings, I had nowhere to do it on the naked gsx. I’m happy especially compared to stock.
