Hey all, I'm looking into converting my high and low beam light bulbs with LED bulbs. Are both sets the same bulbs or different? I can't find anything that tells me if they are or aren't before I go buying.

Thanks!

It should be at the back of the manual:
Electrical system
Basic electric items are:.
Headlight type:
no. 2 bulbs: H11 12 V 55 W (low beam);
no. 2 bulbs: H11 12 V 55 W (high beam).

However, I suggest that you stick to just swapping the low beam because they are far easier to get to and the high beam requires removing A LOT of parts.

There's a massive thread on that topic here somewhere.

I've changed both the highs (w/Silver Stars) and the lows (w/Diamond Vision).
Silver Stars were a slight improvement but not the Diamond Vision as they perform worst than stock but do look better.
If I had to do this all over again today, I'd replace all of them with LED's as they are now relatively affordable with more choices to choose from.

I've been considering going that route as well for the lows. They highs are a pain to change.
The new LED's are smaller, some are plug-n-play with no cables to deal with etc. Their fans have also improved.
Be nice to know what model/brand works and which doesn't.

I have tried to install led on the low beam, but it didn’t fit, the cooler part is to big.

I have got this model, seems to have good quality.



This black part gets stuck on a piece of plastic.



Right here.

It probably fits, but this dissipator is gonna be a little bit weird when you look down to the dash.

Take a look on this part of the description:

"May require some modification on the headlight panel to install these on your Panigale."

I have just installed a H11 Diamond Vision Philips 5000k.

Here is a comparison between the stock (right side) and Philips (left side)

Looks very cool, they should be standard on the Ducati, the OEM looks cheap and old.
Going to give it a try to these Philips, $32 on Amazon Prime. Shame the highs are a pain to do, I always ride with my high beam on, and sometimes people do not see me!! **** txting.

I only use the highs when I am between cars on a traffic jam, yes, we can do it here in Brazil, they will only give you a ticket if you do it on the road, but not inside the cities, and when I am in this situation, excuse my language, I don’t fucking care about my head light color LOL.
