Better LED?

Anyone find a headlight LED that’s as bright or brighter than OE bulb? Looking for less draw without sacrifice,

There was some buzz on here about two years ago about swapping LED bulbs for the stock bulbs. Of what I recall there was no significant light output change. But a little less draw. To do LED's right they need the right projector lenses. Question why even use the factory lights?? You have the LED light bar. Hell with my light bar rendered the factory lights useless.

So mostly where I ride your headlights are required to be on. And when the trails are really dusty, aside from OE lights, I actually have light bar w/yellow lens covers turned on. Yellow seems to cut through the fog of dust. So with both on looking to lower the draw. Just looking for any follow up from some who’ve swapped to LED.
