LEDs and HIDs do not work properly in the Seca II reflectors.

Now, if you do a naked conversion, install a trucklite led light and enjoy the sweetness of led lighting.

I saw this post a while ago, just after I had ordered myself a cheap LED replacment, after a while of riding with it, I have to say I quite like it.

The camera doesn't show it very well, but it really lights the road up nicely. While looks like a conventrated spot, I can tell you that the light is being spread out and illuminating quite a lot
