They changed the laws in the UK, in 2020 you couldn't fit led bulb conversions.
I suppose due to the prolific amount of led usage and drls they changed their minds.
Now as long as the angle is ok they are not allowed to fail them.

I read that these bulb conversions don't fit the GRiSO nacelle.
Bought me one of these and a couple of those push fit side light leds on lcjohnny's recommendation. He posted it somewhere.

They may not fit your GRiSO headlight nacelle but they certainly fit mine.
Removed the 3 right angled females from the H4 connection, then fitted them direct to the led headlight bulb replacement.
A quick 45 degree bend and the non fittment issue was corrected.

Fits perfect and can adjust headlight angle.
Took me 10 mins, piece of pish and only cost £25 all in  Cool  
Non of this swap this, swap that, adjust this, drill this, drill that, spend £100's of quids (almost a grand for some) for some fancy DRL (all made in china) with a shitty plastic lens scratches first time you clean off the bugs.
Oh yea and condensates, least it matches ya dash! Laughing

Strong white saturation instead of pale lack lustre yellow, more daylight brightness, slightly larger spread, significantly less power consumption, a lot less heat and a longer life.

I know the alternator puts out plenty of omph 14.2 -14.8 volts but still am not a fan of DRL's.
Basically headlights/tail lights running every time you ride.
If I could switch them off using the existing handlebar switches I would.
Am old school too remember using the side light at dusk and switch on the headlights when the streetlights come on.
All the electrics on my bike are working overtime because of DRL's.
Drivers that are looking will see your DRL's or no DRL's, drivers that are fiddling with their phones, chatting all the time, dealing with kids and pets.
Well them DRL's make no difference, even dayglo police cars get collided with.
Filter filter filter and ride like everyone wants to kill you and you'll be just fine.

Oh yea and bikes fires up at around 10.2volts since fitted it Very Happy

Changing Bulbs is futile, and will never achieve the desired light output.  The reflector is designed for a certain sized light source, and you will probably just make the situation worse.


I fitted a OSRAM 7" Round Black Led Headlight on my GRiSO, no bucket, following the advice of Beetle on this forum.

5500 lumens for high beam, 3600 lumens for low beam. The difference is night & day (pun intended).  The low beam is on continuously, the high beam punches a bright light for a considerable distance. Current demand is much reduced, thus little voltage drop from the battery to the headlight.

Manufacturers Part Number: DP-JH-5, DoT approved.

Amazon Standard Identification Number (ASIN): B01L6YA2XS

On my 07, I had to replace my headlight since the glass got cracked somehow...
Replacement was rather expensive and for that king of money, I'd rather go the beetle route.
For a quick short term solution, I bought a bullet old school type complete assembly for $75.
Diameter is 6, not 7. It's not very noticeable since I have an aftermarket head fairing but what surprised me was that the lighting was greatly improved!
To the point where it's very acceptable for now. I guess it's due to the different reflector size...
I'm still gonna go full LED on the 8V but I'm picky about the look so I'm taking my time finding a design that won't make the bike look like a frog. lol

I concur with kiwi dave... Changing the bulb didn't work for me.
I bought the so praised "Daymaker" led bulb but that turned out to be a pure waste and the HI beam stop working after a couple of months. lol
Garbage...
