To be honest I didn't find LEDs that worked. The bulbs were bright but the ones I selected didn't have any rear or side facing lights so the reflector didn't work and that caused the lights to be dim.

If I were to do a change, I would do the HIDs

Look for a 880 bulb base, but it might take some trail and error to find bulbs with suitable out put for headlight replacement .

I haven't seen any negative reviews. My eBay set work just fine, would recommend hids until the price of a led set become much more reasonable.

I ride in Farm fields and they hold up fine, the ballast are tucked up between the shock tower and storage compartment to try to keep them safe.
