head lamp

Hello,

I recently bought my GSXS 1000 2018 from the dealer, and I don't like much the stock headlamp colour and efficiency and suggestions that might help?

In regards to LED bulbs... might want to have a look at these videos. They are a bit cheesy at times, but some really good info on what to look for.

Not LED, but I'm very happy with

I've got nighteye in mine, really impressed with the cut off and light spread. I wasn't expecting much but I don't often ride at night, pleasantly surprised though, I just hated the yellow headlight against the fang leds.

There are a few versions now, not sure how they compare but these are the ones I got. Me and my brother shared the cost
