Just happened across this post and saw your recent update, sounds good, thanks for the links! Will this affect the MOT and remain road legal? How long to fit, about an hour with a few swear words?!

Mine passed MOT with HID fitted, so these will pass without issue  :028:
I updated mine to led a few weeks back in my lunch hour.  :031:

The first main and sidelight, nearside, took me about 90 mins. The offside about 15. Experience is a big timesaver!
There's nothing difficult about the job, but it just took me time to figure out how it all goes together, how to keep it waterproof  and decide how to secure all the bits so nothing fouls the steering!  A pair of long nosed pliers help to release and fasten the spring clips, otherwise no special tools needed and no need to remove fairings or any of that palaver.
As far as the MOT goes, no idea. I'm keeping the old bulbs just in case. Even if I have to change them, it will only be a 20 min job now!

Well I bought these:

And this is what they look like compared to Osram Night Breakers. First row dip beam LH Osram with RH Safego, second on main beam LH Osram RH Safego. I do need to still adjust the lights aim.

Thanks Maccmike for this information and the supply of the spacers, I have made this mod over the last few days and tonight was my first night ride out after the mod. This modification has extended my ride time and has been well worth the investment. The install went well yesterday with no problems, I've just had to change the headlight aim to suit the new led lights. Thanks once again, Paul.  :031:
