I browsed their site and they have some other off-road LEDs that look pretty nice also, 2000 Lumens
Yes, I was thinking of putting on one flood and one spot pattern light. When I am not using the auxiliary front tank on my 450, I would have my 55 W HID light. I could supplement that with a flood light mounted on a ram mount on my bars. I doubt that you would just be able to swap out LEDs. The thermal demands for high powered LEDs require that they be integrated into a circuit board with heavy copper planes and that the board be properly heat sinked to the outer housing.
