The new BLI K4s have a lamp for the headlight rather than a LED.

BLI's are all LEDs, I'm almost 100% sure. I doubt that there are
any convenient light bulbs that draw as little power as an LED,
and even if they did, their "safe" voltage probably wouldn't match.

I'd find a way to fit the LED to the new headlight casting.
