Just search eBay for LEDs..1,000's show up and they are cheap.

Anywhere from the five pad to 13..some had issues with the 13 pad as they are taller and almost touch the reflector..= melts it others had no issues..I have use both 5 and 13 with no issues.

As to the headlights themselves..not sure if Led is the way to go..HID systems are really good but $$$ for a good set that's plug and play.

I am using Xenon H4 bulbs brighter than stock and cheap compared to HID systems. Depending on you headlight you may need adapters as the ears on some bulbs don't fit the stock socket..not a big deal adapters again on eBay $10. They changed the position of the ears that lock the bulb in place I forget which it is they went wider or narrower in 97 or 98..

..I have an extra set of Xenon bulbs I bought by mistake clicked twice instead of once on-line..yours for $12 including shipping..PM me if you want them.
HAD LOTS OF GOLDWING 75-83
