H7 and H9 combo LED headlight bulb set?

For 06-12 models, it needs h7 and h9 bulbs for low beam and high beam. Cant understand triumph's logic for doing this but it is what it is. I'm not able to find a combo set for this, so what are people doing if they want to upgrade to brighter LEDs - buy 2 separate sets of LEDs and have a leftover set? I'm speaking from a cost perspective. Thanks

VLEDs will sell you one of each if you email their sales support folks first for the link. I have them in my 2011

How do they work? Any fogging of the lense with those?

Thanks!

I just went on ebay and found the bulbs I wanted from the same vendor then messaged them asking if they can create a custom order for me. I went with HIDs, but anyone should do it.

Would be curious to know how your install goes. I really struggled to get my HID ballasts to fit anywhere nicely.

I haven't noticed any fogging. Vibration tends to make them rotate slightly in the reflector which messes up the shape of the beam if you don't secure the wiring adapters.

I had an earlier version of their LEDs with a separate regulator and was able to use mounting tape on the little shelf below the headlights. But the newer version is integrated to the back of the heatsink. I don't know if it fits under the dust covers; I removed them for the first set and haven't tried installing them for these.

Ah, you're not using the dust covers.
I managed to cram one of my HID ballasts into the shelf you're referring to, but it was messy and it's VERY tight. certainly no way to mount 2 in the same place. Maybe I just need to try a different product (LEDs?) with smaller ballasts, and not worry about the dust covers...

@Unicycle Santa , would be curious to see your install though!
