Anyone changed the headlight on a TBS? I already installed a LED but it is still not better than stock... any idea?

First, make sure your headlight is getting full voltage. On US bikes the ignition switch is also switching the headlight, and this causes the switch to go bad.

If you want the best, get the JW Speaker 7" adaptive headlight.

If you want to go the cheap route, this knockoff has gotten good reviews on more than one forum I frequent: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32788462749.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.1531241d8IkU1T&algo_pvid=f8242133-bebd-4107-9b9a-4cfaa23d1616&algo_expid=f8242133-bebd-4107-9b9a-4cfaa23d1616-1&btsid=e17fbc30-749e-429b-a2ff-10518317bc16&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_8,searchweb201603_53

In my honest opinion the je speaker is too modern looking a light and although it’s a half decent light is does not beat the spread of the trucklite. I’ve tried both on and even though the trucklite sticks out1/2” I still prefer it. It’s a standard 7” light made for jeeps but works wonders. About $160 but with a 3 year warranty.

I just had the chance to test my Grote LED light up in the Carolina mountains and was very impressed with the wide beam it puts out ( so were the three guys following me ).


That actually looks more retro than the trucklite. Any idea where I can find a link for this light?
