LED Headlight Installation

Hi guys,

I have replaced the standard OEM headlight with a LED kit. I have done a Youtube video of the installation, unfortunately I can't add the link to the video. But you should find it on Youtube, just search for "BMW G310R LED Installation".

It's not rocket science, plug and play installation. Let me know in case of any questions.

Stay safe!

This is a great video, thank you for sharing! Any issues with overheating? A few members here found that the fan on the LED kits didn't sufficiently cool.

Really considering this as I ride in the dark a lot. Seems like an awesome addition to the bike that should have been standard, but good thing we got aftermarket parts

Thanks! No issues at all, have it since 3 months and about 1,000 miles. It also comes with a 2 year warranty and is waterproof.

On overheating: it's important to trim the rubber gasket, so the fan get's sufficient airflow.

Which brand/set did you end up getting? I have a 3-sided one and it lights up the road ok. Noticeably brighter than the stock halogens for sure.

I have the Opt7 Fluxbeam LED Kit. I usually don't ride at night, so don't know how it performs, but guess much better than the OEM H4 light. Got it mainly for better daylight visibility and LED makes a huge difference.
