LED technology is advancing very quickly. There are some very bright light out there now.

Vision X is the same as the ones sold by twisted Throttle. I have the ones from Sanjoh at advrider on my Tiger-just for daylight use. I want to get something for the wee but do not want them sticking out on the sides. I was thinking of mounting them in the 2 cowling cover holes that secure it to the steel crosspiece under the headlights.

Default eBay LED

Hey all
I have mounted a couple of 3000 Lumen LED driving lights off eBay.
Currently mounted them on the forks but will eventually put them higher for better light throw.
Here's some pics, the comparison pictures where all taken on the same settings on a tripod with a Canon 600D

Low Beam

High Beam

I've had the TwistedThrottle Denali D1(same as Vision-X) on my bike for a couple of years, using the "Euro-style" (15 degree?) diffuser. TT kit includes two extra lens diffusers - without a diffuser is 10 degree beam, euro is 15 degree beam and fog is supposedly 25 degree.

I don't think they outrun the standard high-beams, but they do fill out the edges of the road with a much whiter light well enough for the riding I do.......

Cheers!

HIDs are great for heated gear because a 35W HID lamp puts out more light and less heat than a 55/60W halogen yet only draws 40-44W. Also, the arc is steady when receiving 9-16V so a cycling variable heat controller doesn't modulate the headlight brightness like it does with halogens.

I added this HID kit with digital slim ballasts. 4300K gives the most light per watt and less atmospheric scatter than bluer colors (3x more light).Digital Slim H4-3(9003) Bi-Xenon HID Conversion Kit Wholesale Digital Slim H4-3(9003) Bi-Xenon HID Kit HID Conversion Kits Car Lights HID Xenon Car Headlights Bulbs Ballasts at competitive prices [VVME-HKB93-DSL] - $52.99 : VVME.COM, Tattoo Kit, Xeno
