If I remember correctly most of the high end lighting was 4300k.
I think Bruno of Future Vision also recommended this.
Here is an example if the link works.
http://www.futurevisionhid.com/produ...ng-lights.html

I disagree.
I could throw back links etc all day long. So what.. potato's pototo's
Im working hard to have different color options for all riders.
I don't know Bruno or future vision.
I do know what works . With nearly 20 24 hr off road race finishes and several wins, as well as 12 years offering quality lighting products to racers, Ill go by my own experience.
To each there own.

I'm not questioning your expertise.
You have alot of lighting experience,I just make my lighting choices by recommendations.
I'm just simply mentioning some things I have seen riders doing.

That was always the standard when choosing Hid.
The efficiency of incandescents drops of as temp goes up. So, for the same watts in at 4300k you got more photons that at 6000k.

What the story is for LED's, no idea. White LED's push out UV and get it converted to 'white' with phosphors. It's not necessarily the same as for HID's though. I'd suspect it depends on what the most efficient phosphor mix is.

I know you're at the testing stage now; but I'm wondering if you have an idea of about how far down the road until these are available for sale and about how much they will go for.

Here's an excerpt from the very first post in this thread:

Retail price on these will be around $60.00
cheers

The bulb reliability is looking great, we have realized a few issues with fit on certain bikes. one issue is getting to the retainers after the bulb is installed in the housing AKA gs800
Not sure what we can do about that right now.

This is what I am worried about in my case. The bucket in a 750 Honda Nighthawk is pretty shallow.

I don't see any issue with the Nighthawk, although I have tried to fit one. you need about 1,25 inches clearance from the bulb base(where the clips are) to the back of the fan box.
The issue with the Gs800 is not the room in the back for the bulb, its the hole in the headlight surround being close to the same Dia. as the fan box, once the bulb is in you cant reach the clips.
We will work on a resolution for that.

I believe I am good in that case. I thought I needed quite a bit more room. Thanks.
