Has anyone tried these LEDs? Phillips 252W; 25,200 Lumens
Will they fit in the housing?
Overheat without ventilation?
Overload the circuit?

So, with NO input at all, I decided to roll the dice and install these.
They fit, although tightly. I haven't ridden at night yet, so can't really compare them to stock H4's .
Due to the cooling fans, you can't use the rubber boots that were on the stock H4's.
I did wire up some other JBQ LED spots to the high beams as well, and some JBQ LED flood lights which powered through the high beam circuit, have a separate switch as well.

Thanks for taking the initiative...  :thumbsup

I doubt if anyone on this forum has used lights with fans on them. :icon_scratch:

How do you get on with the led lights?  I've used them before on a previous bike and am toying with putting them in the Tiger.

What's your thoughts on this mod?

I don't know if that auction is accurate, but 25,200 lumens?  Aren't normal H4s 1000-1600 lumens?

Don't know how many lumens, but they are better than stock, and have not failed yet. So....
