I'm interested in how those bulbs work out. How hot do they get? Can the stock housings/lenses stand it without deforming? I looked a little and that same vender has 100w and 150w bulbs for sale too. I wouldn't want to put too much load on the OEM wiring though.
What say you latebird?

Hey late to the party here, but I have the same unit, and had the same problem. I have the 2018 Bronze LE, and glazed the belt plowing snow the first season, but not that bad. Ya kind rough jerky take off's. It corrected itself over the warmer season up here in Upstate. Just made sure I shifted down going up steep grades. Good to go now, belt broken in good now so no need to shift only on that rough slow steep stuff.

I'm sorry to keep getting off the original topic here, but you say: "supposed to run cool". That tells me you haven't really run them much yet? I'd be really interested if you'd be willing to report back on apparent heat etc. after you've run them a little bit. You can just PM me if you'd like.
Thanks.

I read the specs on them,reg halogen run 161degrees and led run 75 so there’s a big difference from stock less than half the heat

There's absolutely 0 chance they are pulling anywhere near that wattage (or that lumen rating). Especially not with out a heatsink, fan or copper braid heat exchanger. They're putting the watt rating on there for the bulb wattage you are replacing, not the wattage you are getting with their product.

A quality replacement LED will have a driver module, and a fan (active) or a heatsink (passive) cooling system. The good ones will be north of $50 each, and have a true tested lumen rating (usable), and will usually also include a lux rating (Distance to 1000lumen), a raw lumen rating, or candela rating.

Also, 6000K is closer to the blue end of white. For cleaner white light like daylight, you want 4500K to 5500K color temperature. Color temperature is important to me, because 4500 reflects off snow much better than 5000K and above.

I have 3 x Morimoto 2 Stroke 2.0s on my 800, true high output 5500K, 23W, 2400lumen. Wanted to reduce the wattage load overall.

Yup those are the way to go but they probably won’t fit mine , there’s just enough room for the tray to drop in place in the front , if the back of the bulbs have any length at all you wouldn’t get the tray in place . That’s why I went with the smaller one

Not a whole lot of room on the older Sportsmans either. About an inch to near two inches before the tray molding drops down, just enough to get the ~1.3" deep Morimoto's in. How do the newer headlights come out, from the front, or still from the back?

If it is much less on the newer ones, then an 880 LED with a passive cooling copper braid heat sink would be the way to go, it's flexible braided metal, like a grounding strap. Those are much shallower and no fans to burn out or plug with dirt.

The bulb type 880 is straight plug, 881 is 90į angled plug. 881 gives you more room, but almost no one is making true high output LEDs in 881s.
