Every parabolic reflector has a solitary focal point. The headlight is designed to work with one light source.
In the case of the Gen 2 KLR, that source is an H7 bulb. The parabolic reflector is set up to properly disperse the light from the H7 filament into the desired beam pattern.
Any other light source that is not in the identical position that an H7 filament would be in and is not in the exact configuration of an H7 filament will have "caused the light dispersion to go all wonky".
That wonky light dispersion is usually seen, by on coming traffic, as glare.
An LED stack is going to do just that, as does the cobbled-together HID capsule that is stuck onto an H7 base in some Chinese factory.
