Hi all, first post.

I recently upgraded my headlight bulb to led, and when washing the bike just now I have noticed discolouration in the chrome reflective interior of the headlight... looks rusty almost :/ has anyone else experienced this?

thanks

Is it possible that when you changed the bulb the seal didn't seat properly so it has been letting water in?

I don't think so. I'll give it another check, but I remember the rubber cover seeming pretty snug on it.

It does look like rust from the picture, I fitted an LED headlight bulb and had all sorts of issues trying to get the rubber boot to fit properly over the body of the bulb.

what is the light projection like? the LED bulb I fitted was awful, I ended up swapping out the entire headlight assembly any way as a mini project so no longer have an LED bulb or the yamaha stock headlight housing.
