2020-09-16 Replaced seat cover, installed LED headlight bulbs

I got this seat cover from a seller on ebay for $40. I had it sitting around for almost a year and finally had it installed by American Auto Upholstery on Broadway in Oakland for $60.

Before


After



The LED headlights are Cougar Motor X-Small H7 LED Headlight Bulb, 10000Lm 6500K All-in-One Conversion Kit - Cool White.

The light is brighter than I expected. Only low beam works for now. I need to fix the circuit.


They fit into the Buell XB12 headlight assembly.


The fan part sticks out farther than the rubber cover so I made cutouts for them.

neat. i'd probably punch a few inlet holes in the covers too so the incoming air has somewhere to come from otherwise you're not going to get much flow. furthermore i might locate them such that if any moisture gets in those same inlet holes are also drain holes. furthermore i sometimes overthink things, so ymmv

Yeah I was thinking that too. There is a hole in the center for an auxiliary bulb that doesn't get used so I was thinking that hole.
