If you have the power to run the stock TrailTech Hella 4000 then you should be good to go. You can use any standard H4 bulb in this reflector or go with an HID set up for less power consumption.

What bulb is in your bike now?

Boatman - I saw your photos here http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...0&postcount=10

8" TT light


H4 conversion on hi-beam


Is it just the angle or does the H4 kit throw a bunch more light on high? Pretty interested in this kit...

That's not a good side by side comparison,, the snow is making the H4 look brighter.

I took these tonight, you can see that as in quantity of light they are not too far apart, the H4 widens the beam some, whereas the 4000 is more of a spot.

Hella 4000 Euro halogen...


H4 conversion Hi beam...


and for giggles, Hella 4000 Euro HID...

Truck Light's 12V LED Headlight w/ High and Low beam. This new and exciting LED Headlamp innovation provides a new level of performance for 7” round forward lighting 12 volt applications, offering the extended life and energy efficiency of light emitting diode technology.

Product Specs:

-Hard Coated Polycarbonate Lens
-Anodized Aluminum Housing
-Metalized Reflector
-Encapsulated circuitry
-Each light contains 10 High Output Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs)
-Designed at 12.8v
-4.5a (High Beam)
-2.5a (Low Beam)
-Operational temperature range of -50C to 70C
-Overvoltage spike protection to 600v
-Constant output




The translation of forward lighting to a 12 volt LED headlamp application means brighter, crisper and whiter light output than incandescent alternatives, while offering longer life and greater dependability that has since become standard for LED signaling and marking products. The 7” round LED Headlamps feature solid-state circuit board assemblies for unrivaled shock and vibration resistance and hard-coated polycarbonate lenses that offers 30 times more impact strength than glass. All of these key features work toward a desired goal among end user’s, achieving a maintenance free system.

The 7” round white LED Headlamps meet or exceed all applicable Department of Transportation (DOT) requirements pertaining to headlights, one of the most difficult standards to achieve. Truck-Lite has been able to successfully develop a perfect blend of thermal management and light output to produce an aesthetically pleasing beam pattern through innovative precision optics. The new LED headlamps are designed to replace any standard 7-inch round headlight within 12 volt applications. They can be aimed using standard mechanical aiming equipment.

Made in the U.S.A., each headlamp uses ten high output LEDs as its light source, with a light output brighter than traditional glass beam headlights, which results in better visibility. While a typical headlamp may be rated to last as little as 1,200 hours, Truck-Lite LED Headlamps are expected to exceed that by as much as 50 times. The LED technology used in Truck-Lite’s Headlamps will offer improved visibility over conventional incandescent, as the color temperature of the assembly is around 5000K, far closer to sun light than incandescent or halogen lamps.

Thanks for the order.

I'll get back to working on the protector this week. I need to rethink my vacuum forming rig to get a consistant product. Right now I have about 4 failures for each success.... gets costly pretty quick.

Great, Thanks.

So I take it you just order the Frame from TT, not the entire light kit.

Last question for now.
Do you have a parts # list for the TT items needed?

I Don't Understand

Excuse my ignorance but I don't understand how 7" = 8" or how a size 7 will fit in a size 8 without bulging out... Does the 8" Race Light by virtue of being a "Race Light" and racing stuff being lighter somehow fit in a 7" space? Inquiring minds want to know..

I like the product so much I was afraid it would sell out and I would not be able to get it in the future when I do convert to the 8" race light.

I plan on trying out one of these crazy expensive Truck Lite 7" LED headlamps in a Trail Tech 8" Race Light w/ your adapter ring.
How has the Truck-Lite LED worked out?
