    Update.. Much of the early info in this thread has been surpassed by our latest Cree powered LED headlight bulbs, We continue to improve our products,and offer real solutions for Motorcycle and automotive lighting needs, but do not want to erase info listed here. There is some really good info here that one can follow to see the path of what has made for a very good product.
    To get up to date info look near the end of this thread.
    Feel free to give us a call at 1 800 624 0278 for customer service etc..

    We have been watching the development of the LED bulbs for some time. I make it a point to try out most everything that might make its way to the market. Up until now that has been a disappointing experience.
    There are many LED bulbs that are designed with a cluster of LEDs that are bright to look at, yet do almost nothing to project the light down the road, These just do not provide enough light to use the halogen reflector in your bikes headlight.

    The other thing we have seen are led bulbs that do not have a good way of reducing the heat build up, There is a reason that high end bulbs use a fan system and electronic thermal management, It is necessary. A bulb that only uses conductive heat management will not last on a motorcycle headlight, your bulb is not in the wind, the fan is required.

    What we have here is a product that promises to provide the performance of HID with the advantages of LED lighting. Using epistar emitters these things do pack a punch.

    What are the benefits of this LED Module?

    No Ballast.. No need to find space for an HID ballast
    Instant on.. Most HIDs require a warm up
    True High and Low beam
    Longevity, these should last 10X what a HID setup will.
    Lower power draw, on high these are pulling 30 watts on low 20 watts
    3600 lumen rating
    What are the draw backs of LED over the HID?
    None that I am aware of.

    Note that an LED or HID bulb in a halogen reflector is not going to set the moon on fire like some of todays LED Aux lights. Your expectations should be for a better working headlight.

    Rather than us pushing these on you riders, I would like to make an offer to a few to riders who will install,take good photos and report back about the product.

    We are running these on a test bed right now 24/7 and will not offer any for sale until we see the bulb pass the 1000 hr mark with at least 500 cycles. That will hit about the middle of Feb.

    What we need in testers
    1. You ride alot, we want you to give these a good workout.
    2. You can take good photos of your install and beam shots, up against a garage door or something like that will be good, also a before and after shot.
    3. you have the ability to know what wires (terminals) are high low and ground on your bike. There will be no need to do any splicing, but right now you will need this info.
    3. You will come back to this thread and report your findings.

    Retail price on these will be around $60.00
    The H4 bulbs will work in H4 H6M and BA20 with a slight mod.
    We will offer a 18 month warranty.

    Any chance of an H6M bulb? Or is it possible to use an H6 bulb.. I've never really been clear on that.

    I'll be watching this thread too :evil

    this will be an interesting read. I'm in the process of installing my new long range lights and am curious to see how these work.

    Not really, however I have been messing around with an adaptor to use this bulb in the H6m Housings, provided they are the style that has a plate and bulb holder. Another piece of the puzzle is the new Rectifier we have made to operate these on AC power. We are not overlooking out dirtbike roots.

    I have a 2004 Honda 919 that I ride 6-7 days a week, and every morning it is dark when I head out.

    I use my OEM headlight wires to control two relays to power my headlight (one for high and one for low beam). The result is much "whiter" and brighter light from a OEM bulb since it actuailly gets the right voltage. It would be interesting to see the difference it makes with your light.

    Any chance for an LED bulb to fit the H11 in the 1190 Adventure if these first bulbs work out well?

    I'd love to help testing as I ride to work everyday weather allows usually in the dark as I work midnights. However, riding weather is still a month away at least. :(

    I've had my eye on these bulbs for a while through other manufacturers. This style bulb just won an award at SEMA so they much be half way decent. I'll be watching.

    I wish I could help, but since I work from home, I'm rarely out at dark much anymore like I was when I was commuting. I'll follow this thread though. Definitely interested in bikes like DS bikes where a brighter light is usually welcome along with less wattage for other things.

    However, I just forwarded this thread to my buddy Kith that has over 300k miles on his 2003 Suzuki Vstrom, so he would be a good candidate. :freaky

    The strom actually has some pretty good lights in stock form, so that should be a good test too?

    I commute as much as possible year round. Right now I leave before dark for work, and leave at sunset for the 1-1/2 commute back home. Work is in a rural area, so I have plenty of dark back roads to take pictures. Plus large white warehouse buildings for beam shots. I have been looking at a DIY HID/projector for the NC700X, but would like to test a LED. 45 years in electronics, so I can figure out the wiring! Would be willing to beta test the lamp.

    Thanks for the many Pms and responses:clap
    Many are thinking these would be a substitute for led aux lights, Im afraid they are not. They should be compared to HID bulb kits in stock housings. LED aux lights will most always beat out any HID or these LED bulb replacements.
    We don't want anyone to have misconceptions.
    We should be able to pick the testers later today and get these out by tomorrow.
    Thanks for everyone's interest
    Ill try to get some photos from one of the shop bikes asap.

    I do not commute a lot of miles right now since the ground is covered with snow near me BUT, I can try this back to back against My DR650 stock light/bulb as well as my DDM 35watt hi/lo kit.

    I also have a friend who leads LED development for a small company and would likely be willing to put this in his light sphere to get real and accurate numbers. Ask nice enough and I may even pull my housing and get him to test the "out the front" (OTF) numbers. :evil
