It's raining. I can't do work, and I'm waiting for maintenance supplies coming tomorrow. So time to play with lights. LED replacement bulbs in the headlights, work lights, flashers, and taillights. And added some side facing lights I had laying around.
The OEM headlights and fender work lights are normal automotive #862 bulbs, despite having a special green part number. Usually used for fog lights on cars and trucks. They are 38 watts each. The LED replacement uses only 5 watts. This is a total 11 amp load reduction on the alternator and battery.
The OEM flashers are normal automotive #1156 bulbs. They are 27 watts each. The LED replacement uses only 8 watts each. And they are significantly brighter and more attention getting with the snappy on-off. I actually had these in the headlights of my 425 and swapped them into the 1026r this morning. The only issue is you will get the bulb warning on the dash when the flashers are on. I don't really care. If you have a 1025r, I presume this is the same bulb used for the red tail light?
For the 1026r's tiny little red tail light, that is a normal automotive #194 bulb. They use 4 watts each. The LED replacements are 2 watts each and definitely brighter.
In total, this is a 13 amp load off the alternator/battery. All of the lights are now brighter and more effective. And frankly it looks really sharp IMO.
Then I also had some LED marker lights laying around in a box. So I put them into the sides of the flasher/tails on the ROPS. Red marker light comes on with the taillight. And the amber marker flashes with the flasher.
