Default H3 LED bulb size

I purchased some H3 LED bulbs to replace my 55W head lights in my TXT.

Bought them on eBay and the bulb was advertised at .43 inches wide.

Feeding the bulb through the back of the assembly it will fit half way down the bulb.

You can see the end of the bulb is .43 inches, but just past the LEDs on the side, the housing is actually .48 inches. At the round part.

At .48 inches, the bulb will not fit through the housing.

Any suggestions on which bulbs will fit?

Here are my pictures...they will show the measurements and problem.

Maybe relieve the hole on the housing by .05"??? I have not had good luck with H3 leds, mine were so oversized it was a joke.

These LED lights are just a pain to find.... It seems like there would be some standards.

I guess with China probably making these, the standards go out the window.

I will have to look again to see if the housing is metal, glass, or perhaps plastic.

I was hoping not to have to macgyver the thing.

After installing and using the Led bulbs, they are definitely bright, but don't have the same distance of brightness as my old H3 bulbs.

They are not very effective past 15 feet ahead of the cart.

Any suggestions? I am thinking a led light bar as well now, but not sure where to mount it.

Here is the problem with these LED H3 lamps: THey are way longer than the standard halogen bulb they replace. They are not at the focal point of the reflector so they are not focused at all. I have the same problem on my Yamaha with them. They are useless as headlight bulbs.
