this looks like a winner for my Toaster. I replaced all the lights with LED (except the Gen Light of course) I get comments on the brightness of the tail light from riders behind me. This looks like a winner. I will have to try one to see how it goes. Would be nice seeing the road at night.

I have a /5 as well as a GS like Sanjoh used for his first test install of the H4 bulb. Using the MaxBMW on-line parts fiche,the bulb for the R100GS is shown as an H4 bulb (part # 63 12 1 354 619 for $15.26). The /5 headlamp diagram shows a different appearing bulb (not H4 type) and has a different part number (07 11 9 978 396 for $9.47). Thus, it appears that the /5 may not be quite as simple a bulb swap out as for the /6, /7, and later airheads.

Thanks for the write up and pics Rob. I think the daylight pics against the wall says it all, at night the camera will not be as accurate in showing the diff. between the 2 bulbs.

Does anyone know the output of a standard H4 (lumens) for comparison?

IIRC 1400-1500 lumens for a "stock" bulb.

Do you have any photos showing comparison in output between standard and LED H4?

Forgive my ignorance, are the H4s suitable for use with a Gen I KLR?

Just placed my order! Looking forward to it - will also force me to get in there and fix my "loose" headlight I noticed recently!
