Be aware on H4 bulbs that you need one with the little reflectors that mimic what the stock halogen low beam filaments have on them. If they just have exposed LEDs, they will reflect light on the entire housing, casting light upwards. Stock, they don't cast low beam on the bottom 1/3.

I just bought some glass Hella 6054 housings and some cheapo $30 LED drop ins off egay a few weeks back and love them. After research that was what I determined to be the most important feature to have so I wouldn't glare everyone. Some even are clockable, which may be good on modern plastic lense housings.

As a Canadian, I look forward every year to the circus videos that 'Black Friday' brings to you tube, and the local news stations.

I am not disappointed.

I was expecting shoppers to have learned from the past, and hopefully, to have shopped in teams, ready to pounce and back flip into crowds, perhaps, use some diversionary tactics, to physically obtain the best impulse..., er., deal available. I guess, there's hope for next year.

However, I do believe that the internet deals seem to have tamed the 2017 spirit of 'Black Friday'.


Note to Retailers:
It seems clear, that the strategy of having staff members in street clothes, grabbing a product as soon as the pallet is unwrapped and then running with said products (screaming for awareness is optional) is working to encourage a buying frenzy. Keep up the good work.

They have several H4s on that site, but as long as they have the little shields you see here on the forward LEDs, you're good to go.

Yes. There is not a one and done with ledís. Look on the hidplanet or candlepower forums for more info to what bulb works in specific cars housings. Same problems with idiots and the plug and play hidís blinding everyone.

For the h4 led's, I just picked these up. CHEAP in price but made better than the 3 other LED types I have tried in the last year. They have the shields, have a far better snap-mount ring than the cheezy stamped steel ones so they fit tight, and they are easily spun in case you have a unique reflector housing and you need to tune the beam a bit. At $59 for a pair, it's a good deal.

CREE LED's, 36 watt per bulb compared to most that are 25'ish, built in fan, and they claim they run under water. Be careful when buying bulbs in pairs as they often list the COMBINED wattage and luminance, versus what the output of EACH bulb is.

I liked them so much I bought a second set and put one in Becca's Yamaha WR250r and one in my Beta 390rrs. They are doing great, even with the dust and vibration. The nice thing is that they actually are not too long to fit in the BETA headlight, which has about an inch less room than most other motorcycles.

I just bought these for my motorcycle. Haven't had the chance to install them yet but I used the same brand on my wife's 4Runner and they are awesome. Instant on, good color and not too blue, and over twice the output of most halogens.

The bad thing is, he was our go-to for a while for ropes and lights. Oh well, his loss.
