I installed LEDs all around and the difference was HUGE!
(2) inside nacelle for low beam
(2) very bright & broad beam{inner on bracket}
(2) focused long distance {outer on bracket)
PM me for details.

This looks good VABird. Nice work and worthy of a 'How to fully resolve the pre-sport lighting issue' :062:

Thanks. I may just do that. The "low beams" in the nacelle took some specially fabricated mounts and such. Probably not too many people interested in tearing into it. VERY difficult to disassemble without damage.
The "highs" are more than twice as bright as the Denali DR1's on my T-Bird!
Love them, day & night.

I just installed a Cyclops H7 on my '07 after the HID kit on the bike died (it was installed by a previous owner.)

Everything fit behind the stock cover and I'm happy with the output. I might try an H9 for the high-beam side.

I have fitted H7 and H11 Cyclops to my 2016 sport with no problems,the only thing you have to watch is there is no cut off line like a normal bulb,so had to adjust them a little,also fitted Dinali D2 Lamp kit which is duel density,wow what a difference.

Was it really plug and play or was any minor surgery required?

So you are saying you got something like this: - http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Cyclops-LED-Motorcycle-Lights-Performance-lights-H7-3200-lumen-LED-/182273066204?hash=item2a705244dc:g:NAIAAOSw8oFX0V9f

Into the cavity of a Standard 2007 Tiger 1050 headlight assy H7 side without butchering anything.

I didn't think it would ever, ever fit???  Its looks like 1cm plus too deep at the rear. (Mine was not a Cyclops, more generic brand led)

Am currently trialing H7 H9 LED replacements  having problems with fitment behind covers also but the light improvement is amazing whilst plugged into light units..Once I have finished and have done some night  runs I shall endeavour to post pictures and a report their success or failures.. :300:

Just done my first one. I did buy the Cyclops and the driver (ballast) is pretty slim. I think they claim the newest model is slimmer than the last one. Fitted to my Sport no problem. Never bothered with the instructions  :005: but connected it first to make sure I had the polarity right, pushed the connector and driver back into the cavity (under the reflector) popped it into place and screwed the original cap back on  :031:

Ok, that sounded easier than it actually was. Current temp in my garage is -2C so I am debating whether my fingers can stand doing the other one this evening. I do have an incentive as the bike is in for its service tomorrow which means I could ask them to use the machine to aim them correctly.

Had a look out of the window and I won't be trying them out tonight but FWIW - it does look a lot better next to my LED side lights and spots than the halogen.

All done. For those in the UK the mech did confirm that the beam pattern (or absence thereof) would be an MOT failure. Fortunately I have 32 months before I need to worry about that, and to wait and see if he actually does fail it.

Will report my impressions later in the week as the weather's still not quite there for night rides whan I don't have to.
