    Question NC750X (2017) LED lights are weak

    Hey there,

    does anyone knows if it's possible to change the front LED's for stronger ones?
    I find the light provided insufficient in the night...it seems more like those car daylights.

    I know that we can always put some additional lights (like the GIVI ones), but I would prefer to increase the power of the original headlight...

    Thanks

    The LED is new in North America, so nothing mentioned here. Even the UK forum doesn't have much: 2016 LED head light rant - Electrical Items - The Honda NC Owners Forum

    Do you mean the LEDs in the turn signals, headlight? something else?
    I ride an NC700X (2012), and I've replaced every light on it with LED.

    I've had good, bright, LEDs from [HERE].

    Do you recommend this one for the main front light?
    H4 LED Fanless Headlight Conversion Kit with Compact Heat Sink - 4,000 Lumens/Set | Super Bright LEDs

    Does it work well either in low beam and high beam?
    Thanks

    Does the newer NC still use an H4?

    I've used this for awhile and I'm happy with it

    For $1 more they have one that's 2,000 lumens brighter but I can't attest to how well that one works as I have the 8,000 lumen model (if it was available I would have gotten the brighter one

    something wrong with your bike? Are yours as bright as mine?

    2018 NC750X. This is the Low beam headlight only. Turn signals just the running light. No turn signal is activated in this picture. I had to move to get a side
    angle picture as head on was too bright for the camera

    I've already asked Honda salesman and the front headlight is a one piece only, cannot replace individual leds.
    It might be that the height adjustment of the headlight is not correct, I'm trying different adjustments in search of better results.

    What LED bulbs did you use for the turn/marker lights on the front? What bulbs did you use for the rear signals and brake/marker? How did you solve the hyper flash when using LEDs for the signal?

    Thanks

    The flashing controller is located under the plastic on the left side. It's simple to replace the stock flash controller with one that will tolerate LED turn indicators.
