Can anyone assist in linking me to a replace bulb thats LED for my 2013 gt650r
no idea what fits inside these both


You will have to double check this, as this applies to the earlier headlamp but i believe its the same with the newer one just different shape. The low beam bottom is H3 and the high beam top is H1.
You can get led globes for these and they are vastly better than the halogens, however they do not fit in easy at all.
Be prepared to take that headlamp assembly apart to get them in if you cannot fit them in from behind (there is 0 clearance basically one the led is in).
The halos are freaking awesome, i use these as my parkers with no parker globe installed anymore. Again disassembly of the headlamp, and removing the inner reflector and be prepared with patience, rags to clean up the mess and careful application of a clear 5 min epoxy to get the halos to stick to the reflector in the right spot.

The led globes whilst great, do not solve the problem of shit reflectors.
I've just ordered a new projector for the upper beam that will replace my low beam with a much higher quality unit. The new projector is Bi-Xenon which will act as a low and high beam. Meaning i can use my lower projector that was the old low beam as a small driving lamp / fog lamp that illuminates everything up close for me within a 10-15m distance.

These mods ain't for the faint of heart.

"Us americans are a lot different then you foreigners  8)"

No argument there from me , you are spot on ;)

I just thought of a good analogy for your engine change and analogies are the in thing at the moment with certain people using them to try to make other people look like numpties (I would never do that BTW  :)))
Changing your engine because the clutch was naffed is akin to buying a new pair of shoes because you couldn't be arsed changing the laces  ;D

Like I said man, It wasn't just the clutch, it was a bunch of other things I just forgot lol, and a professional mechanic went thru it all and specifically told me it's pointless to buy a new clutch kit and the engine would eventually seize up within >2k miles..

I will personally give it a try, I would prefer the LEDs
