2018-19 led headlights swap XCX/XCA
« on: April 17, 2019, 09:34:02 PM »

Thanks a lot!

There is a replacement LED headlight unit available from China. You can source it directly from Alibaba (just search for Triumph Tiger LED headlight) or a guy called Matt Geggo in the USA or several other companies that sell motorcycle replacement parts.
The unit simply replaces the entire headlight assembly that is currently on the Tiger.

Thanks for your reply,


i founded this on ebay:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Triumph-Tiger-800-LED-Complete-Headlight-2018-19/372581907768?hash=item56bf9cbd38:g:P-oAAOSwg1JcNewK

But my question is if volts and amps are the same, XCX are normal H4 lights vs XCA led lights. Im triying to found a workshop manual. On owners manual, the lights fuse is diferent, 10a VS 15a.


Sorry for my bad english.

I would be surprised if the original 2018 Triumph LED light fits on the earlier models.

This is what I was talking about. It is a straight swap for the OEM light unit.

I downloaded XCX and XCA workshop manual, the assembly are the same between 2 models, but obviously electric wiring isnt. Halogen ligth are conected by relays, and led light aparently are conected directly to instrument panel, maybe are controled by ECM. I will ask in triumph worshop, maybe they will help me. I dont know if a i conect new led headlight like XCA model, maybe need a software update or something.

The LED headlights on the latest models are controlled via the CAN bus, so won't be a straight-forward swap on a bike with regular halogen lamps controlled via relays.

yep, you are right.

Do you know if its that simple like an on off option on tiger program, like when you install fog lights, or diferent hardware (ECU, CAN BUS, ECM, etc...) ?

Why not replace the stock lamp with an LED lamp?

Was that the 2018 XCX workshop manual that you downloaded ?
If so, would appreciate any info on how to get it.
Thanks.
