1999 rebel plug in play led

I have a 1999 Honda rebel and I’m wondering if I can use a plug in play led bulb for my headlight someone told me about a CREE bulb. I can’t seem find what I’m looking for anyone have any ideas?
And is there a way to make my turn signals and brake light led? Possibly plug in play if possible.
Thank you!

Here's a plug and play H4 replacement LED headlight bulb: https://www.hondarebelforum.com/f79/...lb-119653.html

You can get LED replacement bulbs for anything on the bike. For LED turn signals to work, you'll need to replace the mechanical flasher with an electronic one. https://www.hondarebelforum.com/f80/...sion-8183.html

I replaced the 1157 brake light bulb with an LED that strobes/flashes. I don't remember if I got it on amazon or ebay, but I've had it for several months and it really gets attention when you hit the brakes and is very bright.

I haven't gone with turn signal LEDs simply because I'm lazy, and don't think the benefits outweigh the hassle.

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

I checked on amazon and it says it doesn’t work with my 99 rebel.

I think I did this reply thing right this time. It says on amazon it won’t work with my 99 rebel. Is it a plug in play?

Ignore what the site says, several of us have put that bulb on our Rebels. It is plug and play, but don't use the Rebel's rubber headlight boot.

Ohh alright. Thank you very much! I’ve recently decided I wanted to add a few aftermarket pieces to my rebel and figured I’d start with some led lights for safety!

If you happen to dig up any specifics on that strobe/flash brake light, I'd be interested. Thanks!

Oh sweet! That’ll be quite helpful. Those simply plug in correct? No rewiring of anything?
