    5- LED headlight               5/5     Is just needed to see something in the dark. (Aliexpress bulb replacement. Needs careful selection to find a good one)
    6- Koso Temp readout      5/5     This is what Honda forgot on this bike (Aliexpress part )

    Hi Moh from a newbie on this forum.
    First thanks for this impressive list of accessories  :028:! One question that popped my mind reading your comment on item #14: how come isn't your bike staying in your livingroom ??  :016:
    More seriously - I am particularly interested in suggestions about items 5 and 6 : not sure if we're allowed to share Aliexpress links here, but at least would you have keywords or shop names that would allow me to locate the items that you chose - if you're prone to recommend them?
    Many thanks!
    PS. totally agree on the engine temp part. First time I ever come across a recent bike without that. What were they thinking??

    For the temperature sensor, search for "Koso temperature meter"
    This part is also sold bij local shops by the way.

    For the headlights, search for "H7 LED"
    There there is the issue of how the light is shaped.
    Best is where the LEDs are placed in a circle.
    Most are two leds on either side of a flat pillar.
    When the pillar is too thick, you will get a slight shadow in the middle of your view.
    An other issue is the cooling.
    When you go for a high power LED, it will have a cooling element on the back, which will be located outside the lamp.
    There usually is a f]small fan build within that cooling.
    This is tricky to build properly into your bike, and requires to modify the rubber boot that normally closes your lamp housing at the back.

    However, there are nowadays also LED's the still have good light, but don't require a fan to cool.
    They are not as powerfull as the high-power ones, but are still a big improvement over halogen.
    The amount of light is given in "lm"
    As comparison: a 60W regular bulb gives at most 900 lm
    Ah, and be aware of tricky advertisement.
    Many lights are advertised with the light of two LED's added.
    So, two bulbs of each 8000lm are then advertised as 16000lm (since they recon you will use both simultaneously :087:)

    Well, in the end,
    It is still a bit of a gamble, which one to choose.
    Luckily it is not so expensive over there (though prices are going up)
