Quality LED bulbs

They are MUCH BRIGHTER than conventional lamps during day and night. I installed a couple of these H4's in the Strom and, man, they're bright!

- Yes, they do fit in the Strom's housing without any modifications.
- They are brighter than HID's and they don't need any warmup time.
- High beam/flash is instantaneous.

Mine are adjustable meaning you can loosen a set screw after they are locked in place and "focus" the light pattern by turning the bulb. Bright doesn't matter if it's spread all over.

If it's not broken, make it better
My take on oil: Name brand, wet clutch compatible.....BAM good to go.

These are mine, no fans and adjustable light pattern. The rubber weather seals also work because you can unscrew the heat sink, install the rubber weather seals and then screw the heat sinks back on.

Ofir,

How was the adjustment? I've been thinking about LEDs for a while but didn't want to lose focus or distance.

How is the output with these?? Is the pattern good? Not blinding people? I might buy them if that all checks out. I've owned a few sets of the opt7 leds and have been happy with them but I hadn't seen these BPS ones before.

Thanks

I am still hunting for a quality 1157 red LED for the brake lights. I bought one for $12 and it did not have the impact I expected. I am also considering a Adventure Tech modulator.
