So this will fit the V? Anybody? I'm willing to try it, but the connectors look odd.
IF you're pulling 20 amps, that'd be 360 watts, and I think our systems put out 330 watts, so you WILL run down your battery. I use a heated jacket liner, and my voltage is around 14 at idle, 13.8 at 3,000 and higher....The heated gear is on a temperature controller that cuts the load on and off, and the headlight dims in time with this.
It doesn't bother me, except I worry that I could be somehow damaging the electrical system? I installed a new BikeMaster battery and a crappy LED voltage meter. I tested the battery/electrical system without the heated gear and it works fine, solid 12-14v.
With the gear, at idle the meter only reaches the yellow area (indicating less than 12v) or flickers between yellow and green in time with the temp controller. Above ~3000rpm it shows two green lights, indicating 14v+. At 9000rpm in 6th gear it shows two green lights :grinangel:
Is this something I should worry about?
double-d - I looked at those pics, and here's an observation from a photographer:yeah, I like that! Kohburn, you have this on your V now? Any troubles with getting it to fit with that fan/heatsink?
googled pic of cyclops led vs. h7
yes I installed one in the high beam so far, really need to order one for the low beam now.yeah, I like that! Kohburn, you have this on your V now? Any troubles with getting it to fit with that fan/heatsink?
can't hear it unless you turn the bike off with the headlight still on. still quiet.Wow. How strong and loud is the fan, and how hot is the blown air?
