Makes it much easier, just be really careful this time of year, as the plastics will be cold and more brittle, making it much more likely you'll snap one of the little b@st*rd slot tabs  :023: :oh_no: :019:

I don't think you'll find anyone here opting to go that cheap.  :431: no offence intended.

If you search led lights you'll find a ton of info with what we've done and opted for  :028:

In the early days of LED installation I tried the ones with fixed heat sinks and found it was awkward to fit and the rubber boot either couldn't be fitted or had to be modified by cutting therefore risking water and debris ingress plus returning to OEM bulbs is not easy should you want to. Whereas the ones with removable heatsink all this is fairly straightforward.

Great thread, going to give this a bash. PM sent to Mike lol

Doing DIY stuff on the bike scares the shit out of me, but got the instructions on page 29. Will see how it goes

I simply followed Mikes instructions, using his spacers, and found it quite easy, if a little fiddly.
