    H7 LED Plug polarity

    I bought a set of H7 LEDís for my 2015 V1k and I have a question about the plug, attached to the bulbs. It is a 2 prong plug, that is reversible, meaning it can be rotated 180 degrees and plugged back in. The plug polarity isnít marked, so before I let the smoke out, is there anything else I should know?

    I have LED driving lights, white fog lights, and yellow fork lights, but the factory headlights look dim in comparison.

    If the LED's are working, then you have the polarity correct.

    Experience is a great teacher, she gives you the tests first and the lessons later.

    Thanks. I was worried about reversed polarity, but I guess that since the emitter is a diode, it would block the forward voltage, if reversed.

    Well, I got them installed after a little wrestling with the bail. It spring didnít want to go around the wider bulb, without a bit of reshaping and some encouragement of large needle nose pliers. Now I have to wait until dark to get everything aimed and watch our for the lumen police.
