Just a few words from someone dedicated to develope LED lights since 2004, me.

The active cooling system is needed to keep down the temperature of the LEDs. The driver itself, wont be dissipating more than 3-4 watts worst of the cases, while the LEDs (those are looking as 10 Watt units) can be arround 30 Watt if we want to match the lumen flux of a 35 Watt HID. For 3-4 watts you need no more than a sinkpad, but for the emitters you need the fan.

Regarding the durability of the mirror finish on the reflectors, I would not worry since the LED does not project IR, or at least just produce a minimun amount of them, which are the responsibles of the aging on reflectors.

My biggest concern on this design is the durability of the fan, while it will be exposed to dust, sand, chemical products, mist, salt... If the manufacturer gets a high quality one it should last more, but it is impossible to predict all the circunstances and environments it will be working.

Yes, this one is a critical aplication of LED Technology, since you want a lighting fixture designed to work with an emitter which gets its cooling by projecting IR, to work with an emitter with a very different nature and requirements. Can be done? Yes, but is not easy, nor cheap.

Good luck with the design, and stick to professionals, and according to my experience they are hard to find on LED industry.

PM sent for testing on a Wee. 2 H4's.
If no more testers needed, i'll take 2 when available.

LED Headlight "Bulb" replacement Modules

The DR650 and a ton of dirt bikes have a rubber cup/seal that protects the back of the H4 and the bulb plug from the elements. Would this be removed to run your LED bulb with the large fan/heat diffuser on the back or would it be safe to surround that part of the unit?

Not sure this link will work or not but I found the bulb on the website.

Looks like they are getting ready to release them.

I just installed the Cyclops long range LEDs. I'm trying to decide if I should upgrade to these too.

The first round is 5700K plans are to also offer a 4500K
Will this include H8? If so I will probably order 4.

I've got a TW200 and KTM 950 SE. Racing one of the two at the SandBlast Rally the 1st of March. There are night stages, and I'm cash poor so no Aux lighting. Let me know if you need more testers.

I probably missed it, but do you have the total number of watts this "Bulb", its circuits and fan use?

I believe its 30 watts on high and 10 watts on low. Its in the first post of this thread.

It is, thank you.. Quoted from post #1:

"What are the benefits of this LED Module?

No Ballast.. No need to find space for an HID ballast
Instant on.. Most HIDs require a warm up
True High and Low beam
Longevity, these should last 10X what a HID setup will.
Lower power draw, on high those are pulling 30 watts on low 10 watts
3000 lumen rating, although I think 2000 is a bit more realistic."

So any idea if these will be compatible with the Kisantech headlight modulator?

http://kisantech.com/mag/index.php/pathblazer.html

Those are all the models. Same circuitry, just different fitment applications.

In post #35 he corrected himself, there is 20 on low and 30 on high. Don't know why he hasn't updated post #1...

I stand corrected sir. Good catch. All I know is that I have a 55/60 watt factory bulb and this new one should cut my draw in half roughly. That is a good thing along with I hope some improved lighting.

Any word if there will be any ADV discounts? It never hurts to ask.

He mentioned a possible pre order discount. We're waiting for an update.
