So Cal Moto Gear is a great choice. Go direct or buy through Cyclemax.

For anyone replace the stock incandescent bulbs on your bike be aware that a LED replacement may or may not fit correctly in the socket.
I had this problem with some H3 base bulbs from Superbrightleds.com, they would not fit in the stock Honda socket. A note: Superbrightleds.com would not reply to any of my requests for customer support.
Another problem I have had is with wedge base LED replacement bulbs not fitting tight enough into the socket and falling out after riding a while.
It seams to me that many of the off-shore manufacturers are very lax in their tolerances for the base of the bulb.
Chose wisely and try not to overpay.
