I'd be curious to see how he did the LED lights in the Doo. It might be a viable solution on your 18 without going to a whole new assembly.
Does the 18 have DC power at the lights? I had to run rectifiers on my 17 with LED bulbs. It could also be a factor if you try using the Cat LED.
I do like the look of the Cat LED and the light is OK. I wouldn't call it a game changer. It would be easier to use the Cat LED with a quick adjust setup. Beam adjustment is critical and riding conditions change with gear etc. I will probably put on my own quick adjuster with my Cat LED lights.
BTW, if you add the Cat LED lights, verify they have warranty. I had one element that started to flicker and eventually die. Not a simple bulb replacement.
We stopped to eat and noticed other riders coming in with snow jammed in their helmets, jackets and gloves. They had snow everywhere. We looked out the door and couldn't see across the street. Six inches of snow fell while we ate a few burgers. That was the start of a great ride.
