Thanks for the Bump...
I’ve had two of your bulbs and the optional extreme auxiliary lights on my 95 Tiger for several years now, and they are awesome!
I run amber covers on the extremes during the day, and the increase in conspicuity is significant. At night, I use the clear flood covers, and pivot the lights outward slightly to illuminate road shoulders for all of the white tails that live in the regions I travel. They have saved me from several otherwise close calls.
I mention all of this only to express my appreciation of both the products and the customer support.
Part 2 of this message is an idea I have for a new lighting product.
Have you ever seen those cups and cereal bowls for toddlers that have a gimbal so the weight of the contents keep the bowl always parallel with the floor so they don’t spill over?
Why not design an auxiliary light with a weighted base on a gimbal that would always remain parallel to the ground and provide the best amount of lighting in the turns at night when the bike is leaned over? Wiring might have to be coiled at the housing to allow enough reach, but the maximum amount of tilt wouldn’t need to be huge.
Just an idea that popped into my head - free and probably worth what you are paying for it
It can't be done with a gimbal. Cornering forces will act just like gravity, and the lights will lean with the bike when you're at any kind of speed in a corner. It can be done with electonics. Accelerometers and gps. There's already a company doing that. It's not cheap. I'll see if I can't dig up a link.
DRV, I did not know this! I'm not at home to look at the instructions. Do they tell you how to make the adjustment?
deliberate speed, I do not believe they do. this is on our new 10.0 bulb. and we are in the process of rewriting. However, it is quite simple, back your bike away from a wall gain access to the back of the fan housing and gently turn one direction or the other. the o-ring and tabs will hold the bulb in position once you have the positioning you like.
ssevy, Super happy to hear that our products a working for you and your pleased. Thank you for your continued business and support. as for the gimbal light that is a great idea and we have had some discussions about this in the shop. maybe this will reinvigorate us to move forward with the idea. Thanks drv.
Ordered a new H4 10.0 ultra to replace my 3800 from 2016, the 3800 was a nice upgrade over the Piaa for my 07' KTM SD but still lacked output and clean pattern (at least to me).
I am hoping the new 10.0 ultra will be a noticeable upgrade and I won't have to go all in with a HID retrofit to get a good pattern and output.
Adjustment range in my housing . From counterclockwise to clockwise
the new 10.0 is far superior to the 3800. so your beam pattern should clean up nicely. Thank You for your repeat business. drv.
Thanks Dirty D, great photos. I should have thought of that... Thanks drv.
DAMN, You are not kidding, what a difference!
I will try and get some pictures at some point to show the output.
There is more uniform light on the ground and cleaner output on low. On high there is now a big difference and it is drastically better.
Awesome! I thought that might be what you said! Thanks Again for your repeat business and enjoy seeing clearly!! drv.
My replacement H7 arrived this weekend, and I installed it today. The new smaller brick bit is a little easier to squeeze into the housing (F650GS) but the new weatherproof connector is bigger, so fit is kind of a wash. The output looks GREAT. I’m kicking around the idea of just foregoing the weatherproof cap behind the headlight housing to reduce heat buildup with so much stuff jammed in there.
abnsir, Improvement can be a give and take at times. You should be able to fit all the bits in the housing on the LB side. Increased air flow is always a benefit for cooling an LED it helps with overall longevity. Consider drilling a couple of 1/4" holes in the back of the cap to vent the headlight housing better. The fan is a pusher fan so it will force air out.
Thank You for your business and enjoy the benefits of seeing and being seen better. drv.
I got mine a few weeks ago and decided to just see how bright it was. This was a bitch black garage. Dusk and dawn rides have been very nice. Getting the light dialed in to not blind oncoming traffic took longer than installation.
So far I'm loving it.
Awesome! MikePike.. turning night into day! Thank You! drv.
I rotated the bulbs in my Honda Pilot housings a while ago. They're much better now. I don't think I'm blinding people anymore.
(There's always one of those huh?)
I figured out that the radio goes to hell when I turn my lights on. I guess they're throwing off some kind of RF interference.
Any ideas on how to mitigate that?
Look.into a ferrite bead
Found on Lots of computer and camera cables
we have been looking into this, I'll have to get the info from one of the other fellas here, but we have found a magnet to mitigate the RF interference. drv.
That sounds familiar. I think I've seen those on POE network switch power cords.
