Excellent H4 LED system

Most H4 LEDs have good low beam & very weak high beam that aims too high at treetops, but these have excellent low & high beams that are properly placed like a regular H4 halogen bulb.

The ability to rotate the bulb is a great feature, as it allows fine tuning of light projection, also having a yellow filter allow it to become 5000K which is much more comfortable on the eyes than a 6000K, the blue filter makes it 8000K which is very eye straining.

Being fanless is also great as it has no moving parts to fail. the controllers are small enough to hide on the bike.

The base comes off so you can install the rubber dust cover to protect the headlight from dust & water, just pass the wire through the rubber boot then screw back the cooling base.

some LEDs don't have this feature which is a terrible thing leaving the rubber boot out & allowing dust & water to get in the headlight

Forget about the watts, they are Chines watts, I took the risk and bought them & was pleasantly surprised, I bought other kinds and was very disappointed with the high beam shooting at treetops but these are great in both low & high beams, this is why I posted them here
if you remove the shield from the upper LEDs it will give even more light

So give us a night time beam shot. NOT a pic looking directly at the front of the bike.

I'll say both if possible, don't want to be sending people in the opposite lane into the ditch from blinding them.

Just to clarify, a HID 55 watt gives more light but it is scattered all over, these LEDs I would say are acceptable for night riding, have no moving parts like the H4 HIDs, their controller is small & easy to hide on the bike.

These do not have canbus so they might not work for newer model bikes or cars.
I did not remove the little metal shield on the bulbs, I think it will cause more scattered light but also stronger light.

I do have them on high beam in daylight for more visibility, adjusting headlight aim will be necessary also fine-tuning by rotating the blub is possible.

I have a set for at least one year on my 2004 & very happy with it, it replaced the kind with a fan which was not good and had a ghost light that is not focused enough & a high beam that is aiming at Treetops.

I've been looking for a set of cheap LED's for my Zuma 125 to offset the wattage draw from doing the dual headlight mod for it. I just ordered a set of these and will see how they work out.
I'm running the superbrightled fanless setup on my FZ1 and dont have issues with it.

Give us your feedback when you install them.
Thanks

I installed a set of these and they really do have a nice beam pattern on both high and low beam. The low beam is not quite as bright as another set of LEDs I have, but the pattern is much better.
High beam is better all the way around. Much more useful spread of light than the others I have that are 3 sided and use a Cree X-HP50 chip.
