Well I just got my 2007 XB9r delivered last week. It looks like the front right blinker is out because it doesn't flash and the rear blinks really quickly.
I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for brighter replacements to the stock incandescent bulbs. Do they make LED replacements? Also what is a good replacement for the stock headlights?
Also if anyone lives in Michigan, any suggestions on insurance.

You can order the newer model LED blinkers from American Sport Bike or there are lots of off brands available through eBay & etc. Whichever route you take I would get the new module from American Sport Bike as well so that the LEDs work right. Send Al an e-mail & he'll tell you what to get. I got the DDM 35w HIDs for the headlights which many people out here seem to like. I haven't had a chance to install yet, but I'm confident I'll be pretty happy.

I have just installed the 35w HID kit that American Sport Bike sells in the low side & the upgraded filament type bulb they offer for the high side. The difference is night & day (pun intended).
Al explained that it is better to only do the low side because switching a HID light on and off repeatedly will shorten the lifespan (turning hi beams on and off).
