Evitek H4 headlight bulb new user question
« on: November 04, 2017, 12:04:46 am »
Got the evitek from amazon per recommendations here. Install was easy. The halogen bulb that was in there was hotter than stock and was decent. The new led is awesome! Color is great it's not blue thank goodness! The low beam to high beam patterns look a bit strange though. Maybe it's the scatter not controlled by the hood in there? Low beam seams to low to the ground and high beam is perfect!! Right where I want it. It's like just run the low during the day for conspicuity and both at night. With both on it seams like modern car led headlight output in my opinion I did lower the adjustment and ended moving it back where it was. Can I hear your experiences with this bulb? I am very pleased all in all.  Nice dark ride to work at 6am so I'll have a ride report tomorrow thanks!  Gus

Well I'm a little disappointed.  The light out put is not as good as I hoped. It illuminates the lines in the road and signs great but not " on the ground- on out there" as i hoped for. Luckily for me my car takesh4 bulbs and I'm going try them there.

I found that with some H4 LEDs that I tried.  I've gone through 4 different designs so far.

The halogen that was in there says "osram" 60/55w. I dunno if that's slyvanisvorvahat. I think made in Germany iirc-- it's going back in tonight

I don't trust LED bulbs for my bikes! I've heard too many people say that the higher vibration bikes make, blows the LED...and you have just one lamp. standard bulbs have 2, high and dipped.  I use 'Ring Xenon Max' bulbs, said to give 100% more output than a standard bulb. Very bright, and if the normal dipped filament blows I can ride home on high beam, plus its very easy to pick up a H4 bulb if needed.
I do have a pair of LED spotlamp/DRL's fitted, these are excellent for making yourself visible to others, and do light up the road right in front of you, just don't have the same distance benefits of the high output bulbs.
I have a 44" LED light bar on my 4x4...now that does light up things!  ;D
