The no-load relay is for the turn signals. The LED headlight is, or should be, a plug-n-play. I bought the brand VTX_Daymaker that came with the adjustable mounting ring, but I still had to use 3 tiny flat washers under the one side adjustment screw to get the beam to center.

Will just a regular LED bulb work on my 2006 VTX 1300c without changing anything?
Yes, but you will have worse visible light than a halogen bulb... LEDs do not work well in reflectors designed for halogen bulbs. They will appear to be brighter (because they are), but they spread light all over the place, and less actual light in the correct pattern.

You are better of buying a www.vtxdaymaker.com Daymaker (LEDs in a projector housing) WITH his adjustable bracket. It is well worth the money... Save your money and do it right the first time.

As @PaXman11 said, the bike will accept LED headlights without issue, it's the indicators that will rapidly flash if you don't change the indicator relay to a zero/no load like the one I posted.

While you can plug n play an led bulb and it’s easier than installing a Daymaker, it will be a roll of the dice in terms of how the light pattern is, and as with mine, will require quite a bit of adjustment to get it right. Do I like it better than the stock bulb? Yes. If I wasn’t too lazy to install one would I prefer a Daymaker? Yes 🤙
