I am really interested but I guess I will have to wait until some longer term reviews will come out. I love the idea of these bulbs but I am a little wary.

wary of what? carry the old one with you, should something go wrong stick it back in.. LED lights are infinitely more reliable than standard bulbs. it's almost certain the stock one will blow at sometime in the first few years of owning any bike.

it seems pretty tight in there from memory though, do you happen to know about the fit in that application Sanjoh?
I don't think it will fit. Does it have the adjuster on the back of the headlight bucket? Kinda looks like a turnbuckle used to adjust vertical beam height.

Am I correct in thinking the h4 will also fit the ktm 690 enduro? I'm tempted to get another ktm with the new 2014 model.
Got a 2012 690 here, also interested in this led "bulb". Don't think there's much free space for that heatsink though, I seem to recall the back of the plug that goes onto the bulb being awfully close to the front of the headstock.

Transalp Installation

Fairly easy installation, 20 minutes tops. Had to maneuver some due to wire loom seating directly behind LED unit. I haven't tried it at night but it appears bright enough during daylight. I ride to work every night and was previously using an HID 6000k unit.
I will report later on results.

Protective screen still on, and bulb mounted sideways? Just wondering as it seems that way to me

The headlight housing will have the DOT info on it. Pull out your current H4 bulb and check for DOT markings

Would the heat sink handle the heat (while moving of course) if I ran hi and low at the same time?


Then of course, I'd have to check if the plastic rectangular lens could handle it as well. And make extensions for the upper rubber bands to allow room @ the steering head tube.
