If I understand correctly, its plug-and-play for this bike, right?
Many installs on the 690 with the H4 bulb, sorry I do not have a photo, maybe someone else does?

Received my H4 bulb in 3 days. Installed over the weekend and wow what a difference. If you are on the fence, I would do this mod. Cheap enough and Cyclops was great. It made a big difference on my KTM 990R. I can now see at night. Way better than the anemic stock lamp. Cheers.

LED Headlight "Bulb" replacement Modules

All done n here are the picture:










Remove the black bracket from the LED bulb.( *Tips to remove it simply push and twist the bracket out. )




Mount the black bracket into the headlight using the existing holder as shown in the picture.





Connect the two pins socket of the LED to the existing wire socket as : black to brown and Red to Yellow.


Arrange the wire n stuff it into the side of the headlight unit as shown in the picture.



Insert the bulb into black bracket by pushing in gently with a twist .(becareful n don't break it.) it should be an easy fit with a twist. Cover the rear cap on & it done.






I'm very happy with the product n will definitely recommend to any BMW F650GS/F700GS/F800GS riders.

Thank You
What a great write up!! I can take some marketing tips from this..
One tip I might mention is that to remove the base push slightly down then twist.
Thanks again
Darryl

Got mine two weeks ago and just installed it the other day.Mucho better.
Installed in my X-Challenge with ease. was not able to reuse the rubber boot but everything looked to be good. I will give it a beating at the end of the month on a few sections of the TAT and see how it fares.

Heya, just happened to stumble upon this thread while looking for solutions to a melted headlight reflector, a friend pointed me in the right direction so it seems.

I'm riding a F800GS 2013 model which happens to have its headlight reflector scorched by the OEM bulb which barely lasted for a year and its replacement, a OSRAM nightbreaker plus didn't make it after 3 months. Kinda baffling as to why a reflector which is rated for 55w bulbs could be damaged by a 55w bulb.

Seems like this replacement would be a great choice since murpies who had the same issue changed to LED instead of HID like he/she intended to (saw your posting in forums about melted reflector).

Just wondering if you guys ship to Singapore?

KTM is currently using at least two headlight designs. This bulb will not fit the H4 version with the hard shell rear cover with the bulb holder built in.
It will fit the version that uses the soft rear cup cover.

We are very aware of the Gs800 headlight reflectors melting with the stock bulb. This bulb does put out less heat than the stocker, however I can not comment if its the cure for the stock headlight woes.
I can say many are installed in 800 with no known issues as of yet.
WE do send many shipments to Singapore.
Thank you

Another Happy Camper....and when will the H3 be ready?

I installed one of the H4s into an R90S that I did a lightweight RestoMod on for the goal of using it for stylish daily transport.

I'm seeing about 3 times the light output, better beam formation, much better conspicuity, and much less current/heat in my vintage wiring bucket.

I'm ecstatic... never had a better value or functional mod to one of my bikes. Thank you.

I also own a K1200LT with a HID low beam and stock high beam -- As soon as one of your H3s is ready, I'd love to get one for the high beam on this bike -- the existing HID makes the halogen h3 seem like a total joke.

Let me know.....

Issues with the H3.. It seems the engineers feel that a separate driver box is required for the smaller bulb. Im balking at this in a big way.
I can pull in some preproduction H3's but they have the separate box kind of like an HID.
