Haha while it may not be the 250 I wanted, I'm still stoked. Picking this up Friday. 2005 ET4 150 with 5k miles.

Wind screen and top box are first on my list. Anyone know anything about upgrading the headlight to led? Is that a thing I can do to help with visibility?

I'm already looking at what I can do to brighten the lights up. I think the bulb in the standard et4 is a 6235B if I've located the right part number, so I'll try to find a few different options for LED replacements. The brake light is an 1157 led replacement so that should work fine. Just the headlight I'm having difficulty finding a straight swap. So I'll play with a few of the 12v led to find one that works. The bike looks clean in the pictures, only a few scratches on the right side not lay down scratches, more like something scratched it (or light keying if someone didn't like them) but should be able to get those buffed out and fixed.

just upgrade the headlight with a euro model. it's plenty bright enough.

knock in a LED on the running/plate light and keep the standard in the tail and you'll be fine and dandy.
