Could you send me some pics and measurements of the LEDs? That way I can print you the right adapters.

I have a question. I am considering installing some 194 bulbs in the top empty sockets on my 2013 PCX. I have the bulbs and the socket, but I have no idea how to drill out the holes so that the sockets lock into place. Do you create some kind of female side and glue it to the drilled out hole, or do you create the locking 'female' directly in the light assembly body?

Keep in mind that the light assembly on the 2013 PCX that is shipped to the United States has no open hole for additional lights other than the main headlight. That means that if I want lights in those slots I have to figure out how to install them. Since I have never installed light sockets before, I have no idea how to.

I used a drill bit to drill the main hole for the light bulb, then with a knife I cut the slots for the locking tabs on the 194 bulb plug. I drilled all the way through the black plastic and the chrome reflector plastic. Halfway through I got desperate and used a soldering Iron to melt away the plastic for the slots of the bulb plug. While I can't twist and lock the plug in place, it seems stay in place securely enough, in part because I didn't cut the socket to big. The bulb plug is a flexible rubber material, which helps it stay in place.

I'll add some pics of the cut out sockets. They don't look pretty but they work.
