    They are the LP530 PIAAs, offical Yamaha accessory part # DBY-ACC56-24-06. Wanted them not so much for more light as to fill in that ugly void under the headlights. :D

    ^^ They are very good. Much cheaper if you buy the lights on Amazon and the brackets from a Yamaha dealer.

    I like 'em bunches. With the PIAAs on and the headlights on high, it causes many cagers to flash their high beams at me in protest. :D

    Thanks - I'm going to add them this week. I especially like what I read about the reflector facing tech concept.

    The great thing about the RFT tech is that unlike most leds, these can be aimed properly so they will not blind oncoming traffic (unless you have them aimed high to supplement the high beams). I have mine aimed to supplement the low beams and run them all the time to make me more conspicuous to cars. The Piaas are bright enough that they totally drown out the stock low beam, yet I never get flashed by oncoming cars.
