ive been running 3600 lumen leds in my 2 headlights for about a year definitely recomend based on performance i can litaraly see for miles but dont recomend theses based on instalation because the stock headlights just have a socket and a bulb but my after market ones do not fit in what you would plug the stock one because its not made for the kodiak its made for anything that uses the h6m bulb so you would have to cut the wires and connect them to the wires, sounds pretty easy so far but heres where it gets problematique, the high power leds get hot suposedly, i myself have never seen them get hot but just incase they have a built in fan/intercooler/radiator whatever you want to call it, its there and its fairly big and it definitly gets in the way, so you need to make mods to the cover in the back of your headlight, now they are water proof, better said, water can go in the fan without it breaking, but once the water freezesit would stop the fan and over heating the leds, now thats what i figure, but it could be that the ice would melt because of the heat but i wouldnt want to be the first one to try. also for the headlight mounted on the bars is the same bulb h6m if you didnt clue in the first time lol the best part of these bulbs are the price, when i had bought them they were around 10$ a piece but the prices are always going up, i got these on alliexpress lol, most of the stuff on there is junk lol but not anything led, the led products are the same as brand name but without the logo, that is where i get all my light bars, and everytime my friends wont a light bar thats where i order them and ive been installing these light bars for the past 3 years aproxx and none have broken.
it wont let me post a link but theyre not hard to find hope this was helpful
Ali Express is definitely a good spot for LEDs once you know what you're looking for ! Haven't bought anything else from there though so I can't vouch for the bars or anything and I'll just take your word on that.
Any H6M LED bulb will work in all 3 headlights on Kodiak. The quality of the ones for sale are not very good though. I bought two and one of them burnt after about a minute. They refunded my money so I put the other one in the handlebar headlight. I ordered two Tusk bright white halogen bulbs for my other two lights because I don't trust the LED bulbs now. None of them put out much more light than the factory bulbs but they do have a brighter white look. I added two Cree LED pods to the front bumper and they blow the factory lights away.
