halogen temps

Bought some LEDs for my 2014 to replace the headlights, but decided I don't want to cut into my covers to fit the LED fans. Looking to just get brighter halogens - anyone know what temp (heat-wise, not color) the stock bulbs are running or what temps the housing can handle?

You can use leds without cutting anything. I have the whole bulb fan and ballast in mine using Oem cover

Those fit in your gen4? I bought a set of NS Series by Stark and they look to be about the same size. About how much clearance do your leds have between the covers?

Not much clearance at all but they fit ballast and all if carefully installed

Do you happen to have a link to the bulbs you bought, and a photo of your install that you can post? I want to get brighter bulbs for my headlights as well, but like the OP I don't want to have to cut anything.

I bought a pair of LED's for my 2008 ZX10R. They plugged right in and work great. I purchased them here: https://www.ledperf.co.uk/leds-and-x...-987_1564.html
