The one I got from 1-Off has caused no fault codes.

I called 1off to inquire about the led parking bulb and specifically if the hue or temperature was a near match to the 4300k upgrade hid from stock. I was told they are testing multiple bulbs now and the go to person on this project has been on vacation. It was recommended I check back in a month. They didn't want to push a product until they were confident of can bus issues. Somewhere there is a thread specific to the parking bulb replacement. To any Internet savy please feel free to add there too.

I'm one of the test dummies. Here's the led with the 4300 upgrade:



The high beam I received was a 6000, I may be going back to 4300 for more yellow light:

Did see that, however I was asking the other individual quoted in my post. Maybe he had ordered elsewhere? I see now that he answered that wasn't the case. :) Thanks though

Gosh, I've never noticed. The low beam on mine, 4300K, completely overpowers that little parking light. If I turn on the 4300 K high beam . . . . well, you get my drift. Besides, my bike is so friggin' ugly, it doesn't matter to me. Anyway, here it is on The Dragon:


I hope this helps.

Mike

We have them in stock for all Can-bus and non Canbus models.

They should be up online by the end of the month, but if you call Spencer he can take your order and help you out.

Got mine from Ebay a year ago for my 2010.
T10 LED Parking Light
EBay: "LED 194 2825 T10 W5W Wedge bulb (Xenon White) #37" from seller js.digital (I'm not affiliated with the seller) for $2.00 (incl. shipping).
Ebay:
This all new Hi Power LED bulbs use brand new Chip LED Technology. This bulb consists 5 LED clusters, each cluster consists 2-LED chips, literally it has 10 LEDs on this bulb. It provides super 180 degree wide view angle. It has 3clusters on top firing forward and 15 clusters firing rapidly. It is perfect application for the chrome reflector of your car. Replace the ugly filament bulbs with this ultra durable and non-fading brilliant beam LEDs.

Put in 55w high and low from DDM just shy of two years ago. Yesterday when I started the bike to head to work I got a lampf error and no low beam. This morning I tore into it thinking that the ballast had failed. Just to be sure I plugged in a spare bulb and low and behold it wasn't the ballast. Swapped out the bulb and I'm good to go again.
Two years, 90k miles, one bulb burned out. I'm still a fan of DDM.

Good to hear...ya, I think you would have gone through about 5 halogen bulbs in that time!

Looks Great! Have you had any issues (fault reading) with the Canbus?

So just installed the VVME large all in one ballast on my '09 GS and it's not coming on. I get the quick flash when I turn the key on but won't light after start up. Strangely enough if I give it 12v from a battery it seems to work fine. Getting the dreaded Lamp! failure.

Any suggestions?

I used a similar ballast mounting method Touratech uses for their HID Xenon kit for '08+: HID Xenon kit Left side

Install pictures:

If its a GSA with spot lamps turn the spots off and hold the clutch in when you start the bike. Mine would do the Lampf if the battery was low or it was below 40 deg with a good batt.

My old VVME unit did the same thing but after it had been installed for a few weeks. Are you using a 35W kit with a CANBUS adapter:

Just the 35w kit. No Canbus adapter. Used the install method discussed in this thread.
