That's true I'm sure one could be found relatively inexpensive if needed. Somehow I'm sure the dremel will be put to use this weekend.

For those of you in the KLR boat:

I received my lights today
I had to shave the higher retaining clip mount down to the level of the rest of the bezel. I tried to rework the metal clip to work with the new bulb bracket, but the plastic around one of the screws broke I was already committed at this point so I decided to glue the adapters into the headlight using urethane glue.



Since the back of the headlight was very dusty, didn't really want it collecting inside the headlight assembly. I cut up the existing rubber boots to look something like this:



I installed it onto the headlight upside down



There is still about 3/16" clearance around the entire LED module, and the vents for the heatsink are still exposed.





I am pretty pleased with how well the boots were repurposed. It would have been nice to be able to go back to the halogen lights at some point, but what's done is done I suspect that with a little more care, the wire retainer could be re purposed to work with either halogen or the LED adapter.

I had to see what the beam looked like and I was very impressed I'll take pictures of the headlight on the bike tomorrow night after the glue has fully cured.

About to install one of these H4 LEDS on my CRF450x, anyone know if I can wire it up to run both High and Low at the same time when I switch to the high circuit? Will it burn the bulb up? I will be running a dual sport control switch with both high and low options and will need to basically rewire the headlight circuit to take advantage of the high/low function and could wire it either as low off, high on. Low on, high off. Or low on, high on.

Thoughts?

Installed a set in my 2012 DL1000 Vstrom for off road use of course. This shot is of one of the LED's installed along with a stock bulb.

The install was very simple, reach in, take off the rubber cover, pull the old bulb, cut the rubber to fit the fan then install the LED bulb. Took less than 1/2 an hour. Here's how the new LED's lit up my barn....excuse the mess.....

Took a shot outside. Can't wait to see how they work in the fall when it's dark during my commute to and from work.

No problems with the LED. On high it uses all 3 leds and on low it uses the lower 2. Should work out just like you want it to.

Another happy Cyclops 3600 user (WR250R)

Thumbs up after installing the H4 3600 lumen Cyclops in my WR tonight...

Removed the headlamp housing from the bike and the install was smooth. Getting the retaining clips off the original H4 halogen (under the rubber boot) was a bit fiddly... Then inserted the new H4 metal insert, clipped it in w/ factory clips, inserted the LED lamp into the H4 insert and installed it's set screw. I used a little teflon tape on the set screw to perhaps help keep it from vibrating out. Given I couldn't re-use the rubber boot from the Halogen lamp (because of the LED cooling fan), I used some aluminum foil duct tape to seal off the opening in the round lamp-housing cavity the bulb sits inside. The "bulge" for the cooling fan was just above the top of the cavity my bulb sat inside... so I layered a few pieces of tape above the clip & below the fan... wrapping it down around the outside of the round cavity, then wrapped a zip-tie over top of the tape on the outside of the housing cavity for good measure. Re-assembled on the bike, zip-tied the new light cords in place, and went for a test ride after dark...

Outcome: I like the light - it throws a nice light pattern with distinctly more light than the halogen, but which didn't seem to bother other drivers. I feel better equipped for the night!

Thanks

I just installed one in my wife's 2009 650 twin and my 2012 1200 GSA.
The H7 unit fit just fine.

What I did to get the clip fastened after removing the old bulb was loosen the screw on the right side holding the pivot side of the retaining clip so I could remove the clip completely.

Slide the clip on to the new bulb, plug in the connectors then slip the connectors and the wires into the housing.

Hook the two looped ends of the clip on the left side first, then with a screw driver push the pivoting side of the clip so you can grip it with needle nose pliers, then push under the head of the screw and into the slot and tighten the screw.

Be sure to position the leads out of the bulb at 12 o'clock, I couldn't get the cover on if it was at 6 o'clock position.

After reading a few more posts I realize I need to drill vent holes which will be easy enough.

The light works great, Brown headlight lead is ground, yellow is hot.
