The only way I could see to remove the shield would be to cut it off somehow but still leave the base piece that the bulb twists in to. Am I missing something here?
Yep, two tiny Philips head screws...remove those pop off the shield.. I replaced the two screws....looks to me that that they need to be there to hold things together.

Just look at it closely & you'll see what I'm referring to.

The screws hold the H4 base to the LED adapter.

Have you had any issues with shipping recently? Mine shows as still at your local post office for a week now. Normally they hit the USA Canada border in two days. And theta where the delays normally begin. Lol.

No issues. If it was first class international, the USPS tracking updates can be a bit delayed.

I'm in the US and generally have the package in hand while the USPS website still lists the package or tracking number as "not recieved".

I always find the usps tracking very good. They normally get items to the customs in canada in less than 2 days from anywhere in the USA. How long customs spend debating if a headlight bulb is drugs or guns is another story.

I would gladly trade canada post for usps. Or at least the contract delivery people who basically don't deliver.

Fingers crossed it comes soon and I'll give it a 3000km shakedown test.

Anyone tried to fit these on a '13+ FJR? Not a lot of room behind the stock bulbs...

There should be a difference. The light placement on the reflector changes from low to high beam as a different set of LEDs light to move the focus.

Got it, figured it out after I looked closer. The light does look better without the shield. Thanks

Thanks wera456 for bringing over your f800gs yesterday. Let's get together for a ride!

What we learned about the h7 led headlight:

Best to remove the headlight assembly for installation.

No canbus errors.

Requires modification of the caps that cover the rear of the housing.

ADV folks have a lot in common:)

can I buy an h7 trial unit? I'm Really interested in trying one for fitment on my Ulysses, which uses 2 h7 bulbs, but doesn't have a lot of space behind the bulb, but I'm not local.
