Led headlight bulbs are illegal ? Even though they allow you to see better at night and be seen !?

Well that’s an easy one. Yes, they’re illegal if it’s not OEM, or a complete headlamp replacement.

Ed, as for things like bar risers, I find it hard to believe. The rules are not subjective, they’re black and white, all in the VIRM. For example, bar risers are under steering, and there is the LVV table (9-1-1) that spells out what requires LVV: https://vehicleinspection.nzta.govt.nz/virms/in-service-wof-and-cof/motorcycles/steering-and-suspension/steering-and-suspension-systems
