What is the low-beam light output pattern like. Is there still a defined cutoff so as to not blind oncoming drivers or be a test failure

Light pattern is good.

Had to remove reflector on low beam lens.

Kawasaki call them city lights, we call them parking lights. Having a closer look at your 1st photo it looks like you have LED's in them, they must be a different colour temperature than the headlights

New vs old?

If you don't mind I'd be quite interested in seeing a before and after picture of how effective they are!
That is, if you still have the stock bulbs...

Luck favors the prepared.

Yes I'm guessing 40 watts per bulb also.

Not a huge difference from stock but much much whiter.
And a lot more visible from a distance.
Stock bulbs were very brown in color.

Pretty sure these are 80w bulbs. The description on the for sale add says this:
"2 x H7 80W CREE WHITE LED Bulbs". How many watts are the stock bulbs?

I bought these for my Ducati 848 and it clearly states it is a 60 watt bulb.

Maybe these are 80watts each
