even though the top tab is largeri swear i thought the lights could go in any number of postions aka wire down, to left one notch etc

Let me check now

he is what I ordered below

ASFIT LS Series H11/H8/H9/H16 LED Headlight Kits-LUMILEDS LUXEON Z ES Chips-90W 10000LM 6000K-Hi/Lo Beam/Fog Light-2 Yr Warranty


Do you think the 2018 version fits the same as the older ones? Has anybody tried?



It is 90W (2x45W) - no errors on the dash board or interferences so far?

Thanks

I swapped out the lows with a set of Silverstar Ultras, but as has been noted, the high beams are a completely different animal. I cannot imagine how a company can design something that requires hours and taking apart the entire front end to get to the headlight bulbs. That's just lazy engineering.

That said, I looked up under the front fairing, above the forks and lower triple clamp, and it looks like there is a black plastic panel that can be removed? Couple screws and plastic pins... Is this on all the 959's, or is it new for 2018? Maybe if I remove that, I can access the highbeam bulbs from the bottom?

Anyone tried it, or will I need to be the guinea pig? haha

@SquireSCA
As @Cotonete wrote, A few of us have changed the "highs" but it's a big job with little return on your time invested unless you're removing the front fairing to work on your forks. If I had to do this again, I would consider LED's all around.

Yeah, I guess more trouble than it is worth. So what happens when a bulb burns out? I have to spend a day tearing my bike apart, or pay a dealer $400 to change a light bulb? LOL

I read you but it's not that draconian. A low beam change is easy. If one of the high's go, then i'll take the opportunity to install LEDs.

Coz I am about to pull the trigger and order the 1299s led
I'd like to put a Ducati LED headlight on my 2018 959.

I've read every thread I could find regarding using a 1299S LED headlight fitted to a 959.

Can anyone confirm if a LED headlight from an 1199S will also fit a 959?

I know an 1199S LED will fit an 899, but what about a 959?

Thanks
