    Been trying for a week to get information from these people and I got one basic email and they disappear. Asked for a few Picts and info. Not sure if they are just not ready to provide the product or ??????

    I will chase it up with them but May 1 to May 10 is a holiday week in Russia. That's probably why

    MYK has asked me get them an actual PR7 headlight housing so they can double check the fit. So might be some delays because of that, but better to be sure than to get it wrong.

    I am getting one couriered today so should have it in Moscow in a few days, touch wood

    Love the video, I want to go the route that Plinz went with a mounting bracket and straight mounting of the 2 light blocks, setup as Walter described in his drawings

    I second the idea of a bracket to mount the MYK lights directly to the navtower, without the OEM plastic housing. This thing is unnecessarily bulky and the space there could be used for other things (tools, first aid kit...)

    Oh dear, these were what I had used for couple of years, day & night, winter,summer,rain,snow all year...

    https://www.dx.com/p/10w-1000lm-600...ht-for-car-12v-pair-2015076.html#.Xr7c2GgzaUk

    Then I gave them to a friend and then she sold them with the bike etc.. never gave any problem and did worth every penny I paid. I would like to suggest you these ones but they are not on sale anymore as I see, so sad...

    They still are. But really not very powerful at 1.5 watt each (and I bet thats an exaggeration). Even if they are 1.5w (and you would want to test that on a meter) you will need about 4-5 of them to be effective as as DRL. Anything less than 6 watts of LED will not give you enough visbility during sunlight.

    Or if you want the cable at the back and a mounting bolt:

    Its looking a lot trickier and nuanced than that mate .... In Russia in general the lockdown has been lifted ... but in Moscow it hasnt been. Lockdown till end of May here. Europe is opening up, slowly, locally, but borders are not ...at least not yet. Many countries are either talking about or have already introduced 2 week quarantines (Spain already has, UK likely to follow), even for arrivals from within the EU. The EU after resisting for a long time the rights of countries to decide to selectively open their borders (to some EU nationals but not to others) has finally relented and said OK you can create free travel bubbles within the EU, that only apply to some EU countries. External arrivals almost surely will be subject to 2 weeks quarantine. So when you say, "move around", it depends what you mean by "around". Around town, yeah no probs. Around europe, not going to be easy this year I would say. I dont think this summer will see any meaningful cross border motorcycle travel, put it that way

    They look like the same, same design etc but different definitely. Already this is 3w total, mine was 10w. And 1000 lumens, in real. I was embarrassed some nights to turn them on since they were blinding people(pedestrians too), literally !

    Well I have worked with LED lights a long time, and I have seen an tried hundreds of them and in my experience most people who advertise LED lights advertise power by claming its roughly what they reckon the halogen equivalent is. So there are some people advertising the same lights again, and calling them 9w. See here: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/327...earchweb0_0,searchweb201602_,searchweb201603_. But they are not 9w. If you actually put them on a meter, these type and size are all between 0.8 and 1.5w per light. Yes they appear bright for their size but thats LEDs, and because the light from these is non directional. As much light will shine into the eyes of a pedestrian from a 1.5w LED like this as from a 16w (standard LED headlight power) LED headlight - because the headlight actually ensures only a tiny fraction of its output will shine up into peoples eyes and over 98% of the light will shine down onto the road, whereas an LED DRL as in the picture doesnt do that. It shines light out at any height without discrimination. Thus more light from a 1.2w DRL will reach the eyes of an observer standing near the light, than from a full power 16w LED headlight, and will thus appear to be brighter to that observer. It would be a very different story if that observer got onto his hands and knees and into the actual light beam of the 16w LED headlight.

    In reality a 10w LED is a spotlight in itself ... and requires a huge and often heavy heatsink behind it ... An example of a 10w LED (with the necessary heat sink) is here: https://www.amazon.com/Vision-Lighting-XIL-OPH115KIT-Optimus-Approved/dp/B00VAAMMAU. You simply cant get a 10w LED in the small form of these DRLs because the whole thing would explode after a minute ... you cannot get enough cooling out of a small form factor. Once you get beyond 2-3 watts, you need copper cores, you need huge surface area in the form of alloy cooling fins - ideally at the rear of the LED. Cooling is the limiting factor for LED power, and a tiny DRL less than an inch across, with pretty much no cooling body at all will not be able to cool more than about 2 watts - if that. That is just an inescapable physical limitation of LED lights. My experience is there is an enormous amount of fake "wattages" for LEDs out there and unless you put the light on a multimeter and see what current it is actually drawing, its mostly fake numbers. Have you run yours on a meter to see the current it is drawing? if you fire it up and let it settle for a minute or two then look to see where it is stable ... I would be extremely surprised if its not between 0.7 and 1.5 watts. (0.06 - 0.125 Amps @ 12 Volts)
