Crap, I hate this old age stuff. I just assumed it would be canbus compatible, as the article was from the ADV forum. I totally forgot to ask. If it isn’t, it won’t work for me.
I'm not saying it isn't CANBUS compatible, but at 11W it is likely not to be in my opinion.I just assumed it would be canbus compatible
These certainly look promising - their physical form seems to match the original, and they’re certainly very much brighter. At 30W, I doubt you would need a ballast resistor, so here’s hoping.Xtremevision V10 30W 8,000LM - H7 LED Headlight Conversion Kit - 6500K CSP LED - 2019 Model
I know of what you speak, but I can just imaging advertising “liquid cooled” headlights. Now, if they could use something like stovepipe technology to shunt heat from the source to a better positioned heat sink, that could help, but given the vibrations of a motorcycle, it could prove impossible to build and last for long before something breaks.Liquid cooling of the entire assembly is one promising solution, but would require filling the housing with a high viscosity non-electrically conductive gel.
I'll waiting for your update to see if it works so I can get one for my 12R. Hopefully it does.They replied and Have ordered it. I also inquired about a group buy and they did offer to give us one.
They didn't mention any details as I guess we are waiting to see if it fits.
This was indeed very interesting! Thank you for sharing.Plug-and-play LED replacements for halogen headlight bulbs are a popular car mod. LEDs often look brighter than incandescent lights, but “looks brighter” and “illuminates better” are not the same thing. I got a stern talking-to from an actual lighting expert about LED retrofits, and science...www.gizmodo.com.au
Might be worth a read for people who are contemplating this change.
