I commute as much as possible year round. Right now I leave before dark for work, and leave at sunset for the 1-1/2 commute back home. Work is in a rural area, so I have plenty of dark back roads to take pictures. Plus large white warehouse buildings for beam shots. I have been looking at a DIY HID/projector for the NC700X, but would like to test a LED. 45 years in electronics, so I can figure out the wiring! Would be willing to beta test the lamp.

Nice..thanks for the reply. 2 of my bikes are covered if these work but my XRR (With a CRF light) could really use some help

I could give a H4 replacement a workout. This is on a Sportster that lives in the mountains. Send a PM.

Thanks for the many Pms and responses
Many are thinking these would be a substitute for led aux lights, Im afraid they are not. They should be compared to HID bulb kits in stock housings. LED aux lights will most always beat out any HID or these LED bulb replacements.
We don't want anyone to have misconceptions.
We should be able to pick the testers later today and get these out by tomorrow.
Thanks for everyone's interest
Ill try to get some photos from one of the shop bikes asap.

I do not commute a lot of miles right now since the ground is covered with snow near me BUT, I can try this back to back against My DR650 stock light/bulb as well as my DDM 35watt hi/lo kit.

I also have a friend who leads LED development for a small company and would likely be willing to put this in his light sphere to get real and accurate numbers. Ask nice enough and I may even pull my housing and get him to test the "out the front" (OTF) numbers.

I'd be willing to give them a try, right now running a 35w hi/low ddm hid kit on my 08 crf230l

I commute 34 miles a day about 50% of the time on my Buell (2009 XB12XT) It takes two H7 bulbs (one for low beam, one for high). I spent 5yrs as an auto elec. tech so can sort out which wires do what. Have a canon DSLR for pictures. Interested in testing or purchasing at least one for low beam (note, the buell does not need a dual-function bulb).

If you come out with a 9004 fitment I'd be interested in a pair for my old posche also

Also curious what their input voltage range is and whether they'll tolerate AC power (have an XR650R that's currently setup to run AC).

I took these a while ago in the driveway,
I replaced an HID that the glare shield had been removed on. KTM 950
I would say the HID was slightly brighter with the glare shield mod, but this LED was very close, had the hid not been modded I think they would have been about equal. A winner for sure.


Low beam



High beam

Looks pretty stout to me also all things considered. If possible, could you post some pics of the standard bulbs (non HID) to compare it to?

No separate box. There is a enclosed fan on the back of the bulb to keep the drivers cool, currently testing on dirt bikes in very wet/muddy conditions.

We will get comp. shots done asap There is no comparison to a halogen bulb.

Is there a valid cause for concern about the LED module over heating for whatever reason? Fan crapping out, fuse blowing, voltage irregularities, staying still idling too long, moisture/ambient temps etc., etc?

Could there be an auto re-set circuit breaker that pops before a catastrophic failure occurs, or...?

I sent you a PM on KTMtalk. I'm very interested in getting ahold of one of these to run in my Gas Gas EC300 running on a 2K3 AC power.

Edit: and I got your response. I'll be doing an order when they become available.

Well Yes, That's why we are doing extensive testing prior to release, just like all our other products. at 1000 hrs and 500 cycles on the test bed along with the testing we currently have running around in bikes and autos I will feel comfortable offering them for sale.
The issue wont be an overloaded circuit, If anything I see a fan failure overheating the drivers then potentially causing issues.
