Looking at the pics, in my eyes I think the LEDs brighten more of the area and go further compared to HIDs. Big difference on what the daylight shows compared at night, was curious on what the environment looked like. Thanks for the evaluation Swampcat on Shoodaben!  :great: 

Anyone have feedback on a C14? Would like to pull the trigger on the Amazon price.

  Not to rub it in or anything... But as soon as my package shows up I'll be having 2 of those bulbs melting pavement in front of me!  >:D :) Steve


I've heard that you older guys need a little more light to see.  :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

The daylight pic from the same spot is in the Photobucket album now.




Hey Whippersnapper, those lines on the pavement on the right side of the street... is that where you wiped out trying to handle those extra cc's?   :nananana: ;) Steve

I have mine mounted in the c-14. Easy, but expect to pull the inner top fairing pieces to be able to access anything to zip tie the wires out of the way. Haven't ridden it in the night yet, but I compared visually against the stock bulb on one side, and there was a remarkable difference is color and intensity. As long as these aren't made with the newest "catch on fire" technology, I think it's going to be an interesting comarison vs old technology. Steve

Steve, Thanks for the report. How easy or hard was it to put the metal base in the headlight housing and put the wire clip on  it and then put the rubber boot over the bulb and put that to the metal base.  Did you remove the fairing before you did any of this?  Waiting to hear on the light effect out on the road.

 It was so easy even I could do it! Simple. Remove the stock rubber cover and bulb. Install the new light's base. Replace the rubber seal. Plug the new light in it's base and twist. Connect the 3 prong connector and zip tie it out of the way. As previously stated, I removed the inner panels to be able to zip tie stuff. Might as well do that from the beginning. HTH, Steve

Steve, Thanks. Well, if you could do it I guess any certified mechanic will have no problem.   :)) :))   :rotflmao:

Would the LED units work with a headlight modulator?
Seems like it probably won't.

I know some of you don't like the modulators, but I do and it kept ME from nailing a bike when I was in the cage.  He was in exactly the right spot to appear as though he was one of the cars headlights,  except he was a lot closer and flashing.

I hear you about the  modulator, I believe in them

I'll wait another year for things to get perfected , I don't have any problem with the factory units.

Someone had asked for the KLR review. I did a review for the primitive c-10 beast and on the gen 1 '98 KLR. In the interest of not double posting, here is a link to the post:

I know that some of you who placed the order have had to receive the bulbs by now.   How do you feel they work?    I saw Steve's report but he hasn't tried them at night yet.   Would like to hear from the C14 owners who replaced the stock Halogen on a night report on the distance they cast..   Thanks    ALAN in S. Fl    ;)

The color change is a nice benefit. The halogen always looked a bit dated.

Short ride home tonite and the difference is noticeable. Long ride this weekend for the real test. Dark late nite on the slab will tell the truth.

I won't run without modulators. Kisan on mine with the Cyclops LED. Kisan designed one specifically for the LED ....got to hit the drop down bar when ordering to find it though

Any info on how the modulator will affect the cooling fan on an LED?

It showed that for me, but when I checked out it was $42.74. I'm an Amazon Prime member, but said this item not eligible for Prime.
