Anyone seen one of these LED headlights - or tried one?

Looks neat, but quality seems a bit poor. Fairly sure I've seen similar LED projector conversion kits on AliExpress for much cheaper.. they all probably come from the same place.

I ordered a H4 led bulb (this one specifically https://a.aliexpress.com/_sj74ji) that supposedly emits a similar light spread as the stock halogens.

Found this after guys on another forum tested many bulbs until they discovered the best results with this one.

It's still in the mail but I will post pics after I install it.
onewizard and tzoykas like this.

I assume many posts by members, they have done extensive research and purchased from the best and cheapest supplier, not always is the cheapest the best, right now I have a open dispute with Aliexpress, kind of funny, my history , this is my third dispute, the ONLYreason I use AliExpress is the buyer protection of 59 days with options of extending it, reality is that most shipping from China takes months, not always, my tire pressure monitor was less than 14 days.
Please post your source and I will add it to our suppliers list.

Which source are you after? The link I provided is the supplier for the globe that I purchased.

I can't recommend the globe yet, it's still in the post.. closing in on 1month in the mail now.. I'm hoping it's not lost in transit...

This is the thread that helped me choose the globe: https://advrider.com/f/threads/how-t...-want.1080510/

A lot of reading, but they compare and discuss a few globes (with pics) before establishing the "best" one.

Also.. which type pressure monitor did you end up getting from AliExpress? I could use a recommendation as I am worried that the cheap ones are not accurate enough.

https://www.kawasakiversys.com/forum...stem-tpms.html That seller from AliExpress was the cheapest and his shipping was equal to or better than USA to Canada

Just installed two of these on my Burgman 400.

I have installed other led headlights, these seem much better. They have a replacement three prong flange. You then insert the bulb which has a small and big post for orientation into the new flange. It has the low angle cutoff that halogen H4's have. I would definitely order these for other installations in the future.
