Hi guys,

Will this fit my bike?

https://www.cyclopsadventuresports.com/Cyclops-100-H4-LED-headlight-bulb_p_192.html

I want to replace all my lights with LED. If anyone has info as to what to order and where to place the order please let me know. I'm trying to save enough electrical output to have power for a bluetooth speaker system. This one in particular: https://www.mtx.com/mudhsb-b-universal-motorcycle-all-weather-6-speaker-handlebar-sound-system

The web-page states max power draw to be 7.5 amps.

Any advice appreciated.

It's an H4 bulb, so it should fit. You may have to fiddle with it to get an acceptable beam pattern, some LED bulbs have light/dark spots with reflectors designed for incandescent bulbs.

You can replace the turn signals with LED's but you'll need an LED specific flasher relay to keep them from flashing really fast.

A few people have replaced all the dash lights with LED bulbs as well.

That speaker looks pretty big. Make sure it doesn't interfere with turning the bars lock-to-lock.

Just looked up the specs.

Length: 10.62"
Diameter: 2.913"

$399.95 and Amazon Prime free 2 day shipping. I don't want any mistakes. I'll measure it out when I return home next week. I think it'll fit though.

Thanks peejman

This is supposed to be the latest and greatest H4. F2's from AliExpress. I have a pair in my ST1100. Love them.

I replaced my headlight with the 7000 lumen Cyclops LED kit. I also installed the MTX MUDHSB-B Universal 6 Speaker All Weather Handlebar Sound System and it sounds fantastic! I left the bike running at idle for at least an hour with the speaker playing at a high volume and suffered no ill effects. The bike started right up afterwards so I think the alternator output is fine.
