putting a >2016 LED B3 headlight on B4? Possible?

so i own a beautiful 2004 Brutale 750s and want to put one of the new >2016 Brutale headlights with the LED DRL on my bike to give it a nice and contemporary look.

Any idea of whether this is possible?

does it need special mounting bracket? wiring harness? can my halogen wiring harness handle these new headlights?

part numbers would be greatly appreciated not sure where to start

I'd like to help, but I've got no idea haha.

New wiring? Dont think so though, I think its the same as putting a LED bulb into your headlight assembly.
Same wiring but different bulb, same 12volt but less power draw from it than a halogen bulbs.

Maybe noone has done it before. You could be the first in the world

Maybe its as simple as to drill a couple holes into the B3 bracket. Who knows.
If you get it to work, you can document it for future use for other people who want to switch headlights. You know, detailed information and pictures

@louiscolford, you ever figure this one out? I've got a 2009 1078RR and have been drooling over the 1090 and 800 series headlights. Done a HID upgrade on a 750 in the past, but that was just bulbs and balasts. Would be cool to get the factory look of a direct swap!

I upgraded my 1078RR with an LED low beam bulb and LED side lamp bulb and the difference is massive. The secret is getting a decent LED bulb that matches the beam pattern of the normal halogen bulb. Have not done the main beam as thought it unnecessary. The bulb fits in the standard housing along with the ballast without any modification, the only "tweek" was to the bulb retaining spring as the LED bulb sits lower in the reflector housing.



This is the site that I bought the bulb from if any ones interested: https://www.classiccarleds.co.uk/pro...df69df58&_ss=r

PS. You don't need to buy 2 bulbs unless you want to. They will sell you a single bulb kit at a reduced cost. 👍
