    Great to hear the Native H4R2 is working for you. Which KTM are you using it in?

    So this is the best choice for a 950 SM, which is the same as a SE?

    Do any of the h4 options come in a 4k colour temperature?

    Not at this time. Our led headlights are typically 5700k color temperature.

    I bought one of these for my BMW G650X Country but haven’t installed it yet. Seems to be good quality. Hoping I won’t get a lamp fault.

    Thanks for your business!

    Works well in my 07 BMW G650X Country. Have been using it for 3 months and almost 1k miles.

    I know, that's why I bought it.

    Have you had a chance to install the Budget H4?

    How's your Xco rebuild/refresh going?

    I'm getting close! I have the headlight bucket off and apart, and the handlebars off as well. I am also installing some 20mm touratech handlebar risers intended for a F800GS but I decided to buy some different bolts (vs cutting 15mm off of the bolts that came with the risers). They should be here Monday and I can start putting it all back together. It's been really cold though the last few days and it's probably going to remain so until mid week. I have a little heater in the garage but it can't keep up when it's below about 20°.

    Otherwise I'm done with the services and almost done with the mods/accessories. I have one small issue remaining, which I think is a plugged gas tank vent. I'm going to remove the charcoal canister which should resolve that. I'm not sure when it's going to warm up enough to actually take it for a ride!

    Looks like the deep freeze has hit! Stay warm, I don't miss the cold and wind of IA!

    You're familiar with Iowa winters are you? I was born and raised here, but joined the US Air Force right after I graduated from high school. I used to say it was a great place to be from - and it has been a great place to come back to were it not for this little cold snap.

    Lived in the Quad Cities several years. That wind coming across the plains can be treacherous!

    Removed the headlight, three screws on the front of the headlight bucket. Disconnected the headlight and parking light. Removed the rubber boot, to get to this point.

    Comparison of the Budget H4 LED to the stock Halogen. The Budget is a bit larger than the halogen om the back side. Same size as a halogen on the front.

    Removed the parking light and installed the BA9S 5050 bulb in the socket. Comparison to the stock bulb.
