LED headlight for DRZ - Want to see interest
« on: June 03, 2017, 02:38:02 pm »
Want to see interest. As some of you may know, I import and distribute Nilight automotive LED lighting and was asked to see if I can source headlights for specific bikes. Nilight makes H4 LED replacement bulbs but not does not make a complete bike specific headlight so been contacting other companies to see the options around this. I have found LED headlights and would consider bringing in if there are enough buyers for it

•   45W LED light (15 x 3w)
•   Waterproof, sealed; IP67 rating
•   High beam (3200 lumens) and low beam (1550 lumens)
•   Comes with factory H4 plug so it’s simply mount and plug into existing wiring
•   Size is 4” x 6”

Will fit XR250, XR400, XR600R, XR650L, XR650R, Suzuki DRZ. Most likely work on any bike that uses the 4” x 6” headlight design with H4 bulbs

Pricing I am working on getting it landed price of under R1k each. Quantity dictates prices which is why I wanted to see the interest. Design is similar to ones in the pics below and I am in talks with the manufacturer.

Confirm if it fits the DRZ, it will fit the DR?

haven't seen the unit myself yet. Will get a sample to look at but according to the manufacturer it will fit any bike running sealed beam headlight of 4" x 6" and using the standard H4 plug

Low beam first pic
high beam second pic.

Massive improvement over stock headlight, the light is very evenly spread.  

For night time technical trail riding one would probably need to add some spots to help with the mudguard shadow.

Sorry to say, those are not road legal headlights. there is no cut off on the "low beam", look at your photo`s of the low and high. The difference is high is just brighter. I can see you be blinding other road users with those. The OEM headlight in the "before" photo is what needed, it has a cut off, not to blind other road users. The "after" photo is just light everywhere, not good.

Buy junk, you get junk, but who cares, as long as it brighter.

From this pics, I can see your concern and your point about the light shining high and blinding oncoming. Well lets see. what the samples I am bringing in do. I will install on a 650L and 650R and see exactly what they look like on the road day / night high and low. Appreciate your input Clive, it all helps the final decision.

Tifua, they fine for the day or set up as spots, that come on along with your high beam of your OEM headlight and go off with dip beam, then other traffic won`t have a problem.

It is the same as this Chinese HID globes people put into their headlights, even on dip there is glare, that catches oncoming traffic or blinds the person in front of you in their rear view mirrors. HID is designed only for use in a projector headlight, those are the headlights that look like a magnifying glass.
