I've played with different bulbs a few times, but CycleGear had a sale on LED replacement bulb kits, so I bought one.

My bikr has a standard 7 inch headlight bucket, using an H4 bulb. The LED light comes with a new socket, pigtail wire, transformer box, then plugs into the standard plug. I mounted the credit card size transformer at the rear outside of the bucket. It's pretty crowded inside my headlight.

The light is very white, and seems an improvement, but I just haven't fine tuned the aim, or ridden much in the dark yet. I'll try to report how it is when I've got it adjusted, and driven some at night.

The box says 2200-2400 lumens, and 24 watt (presumably high beam). The saving of watts may help cold starting, and maybe lessen the load for heated grips and gear. Supposedly 30k hour lifespan too.

So far though, this looks like a good improvement.

Can you verify it has a high beam? It looks like the plug only has two pins to go into the bike's H4 connector.

Would be a great addition to my old yamaha where the headlight is the biggest power sucker.

It does have a high beam. The plug to the H4 socket has 3 blades.
