In other words, there should be a horizonal line of light on the wall with dakness above it, the light below it, darkness above it. The hoizontal light cut off line should be at or below that line. Now on High Beam, the whole wall should be lit up.
Sometimes this line may not be very distinct, and may have a gray area in between.

I've bought these Nighteye LED-H4 bulbs for my 125 CC Honda Innova (Comparable to a Honda CT Trail), which only has enough alternator capacity to power a 35W bulb.
The LED-bulb is way better than the 35W halogen bulb it replaced, and uses less than 25 Watts.
I have a spare Burgman 650 headlamp, and the bulb fits that one, too, but I had to trim the rubber cap.

In order to switch to LED on the Burgman, I need to buy a H7 LED bulb kit, because Euro-spec Burganmans use that for the permanantly dipped beam in one headlight and H4 for the other headlamp with both dipped and high beam.

My Ford edge had a very distinct line with a little blur above. Kinda a pain in the tush, but the bike and other items were perfect. But note your line on the wall should be 2" lower than the center of the headlight. Newer cars have a little circle in the middle as a measure point.

Fan very close to bulb . . .

Here is a link showing how close the fan is to the bulb.

Iím not afraid to go fast Ė itís the crashing and burning that scares me.

Actually, I'm too cheap to go too fast. Have you seen the price of gas lately?

It's SO time for another long road trip!!! - like THAT'S ever going to happen now.

You are not supposed to reuse rubbers.






That's just nasty.

That's why I chose bulbs with passive cooling via braided copper loops, which can be shaped to fit the available space in the lampshell.

For that kind of wattage and luminosity there're alternative options, e.g. with the fan in front of the chip:


Burgman 650 '04 Exec black (sold)
Burgman 400 hopefully next.
