Question LED headlight conversion?

I've used the search function and haven't found what I'm looking for.

I'm about to pull the trigger on a LED headlight assembly for my base 1199. does anyone know what type of wiring harness or what needs to be changed in order to complete this conversion?

Nope. I was considering this myself, but I'm waiting til someone else can make a good "how to" thread (you! ). It seems cost prohibitive too. What kind of price are you being quoted on the headlight assembly?

There was reseller of Ducati parts in Europe that had a set for sale, for a bit less than $1k, here (the assembly is still listed, just checked):

DUCATI LED HEADLIGHT UNIT PANIGALE 1199 1199S 52010222B | DUCATI PARTS ONLINE

Phil referred me to this site (thank you sir). I traded a couple of emails with them, and they said I would need the full harness to make the conversion. If you pm your email address, I can forward you the traffic I had with them. They said the harness was another $1,250.

That makes sense, as the resistors for the LEDs to work on a 12v system has to go somewhere, and they have to be heat sinked because of how hot they get. I think you could def do it without the new harness, just might not be easy and could waste your warranty.
