It would be nice to find someone who has them to see what they think of them. I like the size of those lights though they seem to lack a bit of style in the housings, just a kinda plain black.

I found this site http://24x7diy.com/index.php/cPath/23_45 a while ago which has some very bright LED lights (1,000-3,100 lumens) but they don't include wiring.

I liked these http://clearwaterlights.com/ at the motorcycle show last year but can you say pricey, nice that they have a dimmer though.

Fleabay has somethingt very similar for 1/3 - 1/2 the cost. Of course they come from China, but I would bet these do too.
Look up 10w LED worklight - they have both square and round! I ordered a set for my ST, I'll let you know when they come in!

These lights come in a spot beam (@20 degrees) and a flood beam (@60 degrees). Good/bad who knows, I bought the flood beam. I'm worried more about people seeing me than I am seeing at night. The lights on my bike are pretty good by themselves - I just want a different light up front to be seen.
And the ones on Ebay do look exactly like the ones listed in the link provided!

i know what you mean Most Crashes happen at Lanes where the driver is making a " Right turn" in front of you. even tho you have a green on your Side and he has a "Green Left Turn Arrow" you need that Bright Lighting at that Point.

Thanks all. I want to mount down on he fender mounts on my FJR and vibration seems a big issue, as they are unsprung, these seem good for that, based on fjrforum and the adv link

Here's a link with front pictures too
http://www.fjrforum.com/forum//index.ph ... omoto-mm10



Agree they don't go too far but my FJR lights re actually pretty good, looking more for visibility, vs modulators

Any appreciate the input, will probably look to install

I just hooked these up and they ARE bright. I haven't seen them at night yet, but they light up the other side of my lighted shop in daytime - @20/25 yards or so. Light does make it to the far wall - more later.

I've been meaning to report back (with pictures even), but haven't been able to.
The 10 Cree lights I bought off of Fleabay (flood beam) do a similar job as the picture above to brightening the light the MC already puts out. My ST1100's lights are already really good, much better than the Kaw's above, but these add "white" to that light and brighten up things quite a bit. Signs at night are visible from a much farther distance. Other than that they don't seem to extend the distance of my MC lights. FWIW, on bright my MC lights are crazy bright and that's with 1 step above the bottom cheapie bulbs in. They're GOOD!
I bought these more to be seen than to see and looking at the front of the bike during the day or at night, well, it would be dificult NOT to see these lights. I like the color difference over stock and think that is also a factor - you have two distinctly different color lights on the front. I'll try to get some pictures up later this evening, but I would definitely say they are worth the $60 I paid for them - much brighter in the daytime than the lights on the front of the FJR.
Of course I would think the pencil beams would assist lighting at night quite a bit more if directed properly. I may purchase a set of those and put them on the Burgman just to see (I have the $19.95 cheapies with MR16 LED bulbs in them on there now). Again, those are definitely more to be seen as they don't do much at night.

I still havent bought either - just plain cheap i guess, but clearwater have just released new more powerful lights, and reduced the old ones - go check ou the site

BTW - i went for a ride yesterday with a harley guy that had a set (two) of the big ones - krista - as headlights and two SETS of glenda on his highway bars, very very visible !
They guy bought it used with them fitted - the PO must have had money to burn !

Not very excoting, but daytime;


And at night;


And from one block away;

And from behind;


I think these are well worth the $40!
I've got another pair coming for my Burgman - MUCH better than the $20 MR-16 LEDs I have on it now.

Many of the 10W Led packages on market today put out 850-900 depending on the chip and drive current. Though, compared to a 35W halogen they're still better in terms of energy requirements at around similar intensity. As pointed out by MJR earlier on, you can get some LED based lamps that go up so far as HID intensities but there is one problem with those, heat. Good as long as you're moving to keep em cool but in stop and go traffic and or low speeds certainly wouldn't be wanting to run em at risk of burning em out prematurely.

Personally I run both the fog and flood 1800's from 24x7 DIY and with em both running they were out powering my HIDs. Nice to have on a dark country road but any additional lighting you can get out in front of you is going to be a safer choice for sure.

Well, Sean, i finally installed the DIY Leds RED Modules been running them for a few days now with no Problem, There 10 Watts each , 6.5-7.5 I have them Adjusted to 7.4 Volts, just in case of Voltage Spikes.
using the Mini Adjustable Voltage/Regulator
these are about 400Lumen ,I plan to replace them with a higher Lumen, Later on, I would like to have the Big Ones.

The heat Sink is behind the Light Asse, Don't need a big Heat Sink for Colors such as RED,Blue or GREEN, The white gets really HOT and i mean Hot.
