K 1300s aftermarket headlight suggestions

Looking to modify headlight on my k 1300s. Any good suggestions? Is it even worth it? Would like something brighter.

I just installed a Philips MotoVision H7 for the low beam and 2 PIAA H7 for the high beams

The MotoVision has a Orange/White glow to it and PIAA bulbs have a bright white light.

Cars and trucks definitely see me at night and during the day. The Orange/White beam catches there attention.

The MotoVision and PIAA are Very bright bulbs.

Installed these today.

JAMIEWIN 12000LM H7 Led Headlight Bulbs Conversion Kit 6000K ZES Chip 100W Super Bright Canbus EMC System Truck Car Motorcycle Replacement - 2 Years Warranty https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07KS2VC..._rxFpDb0PVN73J

Dead easy. No LAMPF errors.

Huge difference.

Plan to replace the 12V 5W W2 City / Parking light with an LED unit too when I can work out how to get it out ��

Thanks for the suggestions. Definitely going to go with H7 LED bulbs, just have to decide on brand. I don't see H7 jamiewin on amazon USA, so I just have to decide which brand to get.

Can you keep you bulb covers on with that bulb? where do you put the ballast?

The city light is removable by just disconnecting the plug and twisting the socket shaft from the bottom clockwise and then pull down and out.
