      Thanks for posting that.

      As far as heat goes incandescents have to dump more heat into the surround than LED's. Think about it and it's obvious why. (Hint, total power in, efficiency and anything that doesn't come out as light comes out as heat)

      These seem to work VERY well. I did put a thin smear of silicone grease on the mount section just to remove more heat from the housing. It also has a bigger heatsink area than the original posted.

      I did have to adjust the low beam down quite a bit, otherwise it fits neatly - i.e. the cap goes back on with no issues, the cutoff is razor sharp and better than the incandescent it replaced. It also throws a lot more light to the sides which is a desirable property here.

      My only concern is long term durability, we have lousy weather for night riding right now so the only test has been a half hour ride through semi-rural streets.

      "Philips H7 LED" were the search terms I used to find them again. Not made by Philips as far as I can tell, not 12000LM but they do work well.

      I was lucky. Razor sharp cutoff in a DL1000 and drop straight in. I was amazed that there have been no thermal problems. If you aren't in Oz I'd suggest at least checking the photo from the AU site. I got quite a few hits for not these ones as well.

      The OP posted his info in the 650 forum. Your headlight fits a 1000. Don't know for sure if they are the same as far as headlights go.
