Default Will these H4 LED bulbs work?

Hi everyone, I want to replace my main H4 bulbs in the headlight with LED. Will these ones work?

My concern is the heatsink, will it get in the way

I have ones kind of like that in the high beam and I had to reverse the heat sink to make it fit. These don't look like they have a
screw on heat sink unless I missed it.

What I read about the low beam is you have to move the wiring harness behind the headlight for the LED's to fit.

Keep doing some research. Not sure they wrong but you have to add a load resistors for each bulb. I'm sure there is something out there.
I just changed my H-4's cause one burned out and I would of done LED's but wasn't for sure witch ones to do.
Write this guy he used to have ones for vision and maybe he can give you a answer

Load resistors are for turn signals not headlights.

These bulbs are lo-hi beam, Two settings. I'm going to write them and see if the heat sync unscrews.

You should be using H11 our bikes aren't set up to have hi/low in one bulb.

That's not correct, Cross Country bulbs are H11s.

My Vision's owner's manual (both electronic and dead tree) says:

Headlamp (High / Low) H4 55/60W

I stand corrected his vision does take those bulbs. To be honest I didn't even notice he had a vision.
