    Hi Everyone, i bought a headlight from our chinese friends. It was P&P led light and additional led foglights.

    Change from OEM to LED lamp took me few minutes. I think motorcycle look a little bit younger, and now it have all lamps in led technology, so i can say "bye bye" to bulbs ;)
    The light is very bright, and you can see very good line of light.

    I did the same thing when I had to replace the OEM headlight assembly on my 2013 GSA.

    Cheaper than used OEM. Why not.

    The light output and cutout is suprisingly very, very good. 533649498.jpeg 1346859910.jpeg 1917735510.jpeg 1828894184.jpeg

    ... Matt Gecko resells that AliExpress ChiCom light.

    He's in California and probably has a pallet of them sitting in his garage. The good thing is (for me) he's accessible.

    I had some technical questions regarding the install. I have my PIAA lights wired in so the fused battery connection is triggered by the high beam and/or horn through a Bosch relay. I wanted to make sure this would still work. I was going back and forth with him via e-mail and he shipped my order while I was chatting with him.

    It would certainly be easier to order from a US re-seller. Thanks!

    Wow!
    So, could you show us how you mounted the headlight and the wiring?

    Matt Gecko doesn't have any of these for the 2014+ R 1200GS LC in stock. He claims they are a "special order" . Thats ridiculous. The only benefit to him is he's local but if he has to special order each one from China , we can do that too. Technical questions ? This is supposed to be plug and play . I don't need his help to unplug and plug back in a harness connector. No added value at all IMO. I did email him about the headlamp and he kindly ignored me. in fairness though, most businesses are absolutely useless when it comes to email correspondence .
