For Yamaha Super Tenere

I have been following this and your other threads, I think I am going to get some of your long range extreme LEDs but I am also intrigued with these.

The Super Tenere uses 2 H7 bulbs, but the back of the headlight housings are sealed with plastic plugs and o-rings. It looks like there is only about a half an inch between the end of the plug on the light and the plastic cap when it is closed. I assume that the H7 LED protrudes the same amount as the one you show in post 1.

If this is the case is there a future possibility of making the electronics a separate unit that can be mounted outside of the housing or is this needed to help cool the LED itself?

Have you ran into this with other bikes?

-Ryan

Is there a way to make these bulbs fit an H3 and an h7 for those of us with the Euro headlight setup on our KTMs?

I probably don't need it with the light bar I bought from you last year, but I thought that I would ask.


Subscribed to this thread. I want one of these for my DR200 and my GSX at least if I can't put them on my KTM Adv.

Connector wire going to come out the side as in the pic in the first post? My headlight housing seals on the back with caps too, H4 bulb. Big plastic block plugs on the back of the bulb for elect connection and is about an inch and a half for the length from the back of the block the metal plate that sets the bulb in the fixture. If the wire shoots out the side for connection then it looks like clearance problems may not exist because the length may be similar to OEM setups.

I'd really like to see some beam shots of stock incandescent vs this when you've got em. I wonder how the pattern compares from the reflector.

I've replaced the low beams on both of my big bikes (k12lt, r1150gsa) with hids. the position of the hid on the gsa was not ideal and required playing with. it looks like the leds placement can replicate the standard bulb better. the hids have been long lasting though, with ~190k and ~80k through all kinds of weather and terrain. will keep an eye on your progress and whatever pics come up.

I commute to/from work in the dark and am thinking of converting to HID, but would be interested in testing or buying your product. More light will enable me to travel safer & faster
In a slightly related effort to glean more light out of my BMW G650GS I went with the Philips Extreme Vision H4 bulb. It has much better light with same watts and good life expectancy.

The OEM parking lamp(shares the same pod & with same lenses/separate reflectors as OEM HL) has potential for more light down the road than the stock W5W 50 lumen bulb but the LED I tried from ebay seller: epanda_house that has 700 lumens ,the bulb was too long and thus too close to the lens for me. I now have a Japan Polarg W5W bulb that will at least improve conspicuity , I hope.
There should be a way to put more usable light down the road from that parking lamp with the right LED? Ideas?

Yeah, I am impatiently waiting for some real world results and opinions. I am very interesting in purchasing one of these if they pan out better than the standard halogen bulbs. Anybody have one of these installed yet?

I'll need 2 if it plays out well. It definitely looks like a good deal if they have them in an h3/4 type configuration.

+1 If these work well, I'll put them on my motorcycles and ATV. More light with less wattage consumption is what a lot of us need.

I really hope these bulbs pan out as I'd far prefer replacing the H4 bulb on my CRF250L instead of replacing the whole fixture. The stock bulb sure doesn't give enough light after dark.

so mid-Feb = ~Pres. Day??

thanks for the test effort to Off Road Ryder

cheers

Darryl, any chance of developing a led solution to H3 bulbs? I'll get the H7 for my low beam as soon as you release it and would love to get a H3 for high beam too.

We will attempt to offer all the popular bulb bases.
