Pay attention to the shape and location of the LED emitter. If it's somewhere other than where the filament of the OEM incandescent bulb is, you'll lose the beam shape engineered into the reflector. Most likely impact is that you get extra light, but it doesn't go anywhere helpful. Maybe it'll go into the eyes of oncoming drivers. Glaring them is bad IMO.

Led headlight

Matt Gecko has 'em for $240: https://mattgeckoleds.com/shop?olsPa...ed-and-hexhead When I installed one on a friends 2012 R1200GSA, it was plug 'n play and much better than OEM.
