  2. LED Headlight install

    General VTX/Motorcycle Topics
    Ordered an LED kit from Ebay after reading some good things on some miata forums. My reason for doing this was reducing the load on the electrical system to free up more for other accessories. Mostly, my amp in the fairing which is cutting out during big bass hits due to voltage depression...

    Honda VTX 1800 Forums
    OK, so I'm relatively new to VTX's, got mine about a month ago and have been loving it and this forum as well.
