H4 LED Replacement
« on: Mar 20, 2020, 06:03:50 pm »
Hey folks,

   Custom Cycle Wiring now offers Custom LED's H4 Plug and Play H4 LED bulb. It has been tested on a 2014 SCL and a 2008 and the results came back with a direct fit WITHOUT STATOR GROWL. Free domestic shipping too. Link is below:

    Another simple choice if you don't want to horse around with LEDs or fitment/heating issues:  Go to Walmart or Amazon and get a single $22.99 Sylvania Silverstar ULTRA 9003 H4 (55/60watt) halogen plug-in bulb.  The rated wattage is somewhat misleading as these puppies are very bright with a slightly bluish-white tint--a no brainer to change.  Puts my original (still working) bulb to shame.  They have a shorter rated lifespan than the less-bright Silverstar-Extras, but mine is still looking new after 2 years and I am not disappointed whatsoever with its lumens or road focus.   There's lots of comments about different conversions on this site--some problematic or overpriced as far as I'm concerned...    O8O    (The first photo is the old, tired Yamaha H4 bulb)

    There's no substitute for cubic inches and a good engine management system!   Hmmm, well maybe a blower, NOS or turbo....

      I've put two of these in Bolts and they are bright as hell...good price and last long time

      https://www.ebay.com/itm/120W-12000LM-CREE-COB-LED-Motorcycle-Headlight-Hi-Lo-Kit-6000K-White-H4-9003-A/172803901507?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

      Gotta say, that's a helluva price with a great lifetime rating, too.  Seen them before on eBay. I have a couple CREE type flashlights and they will burn down the sky even though they get hot and run down the special batteries quickly.  They're operating room bright white when you truly need it!!   (Cops like them.)     :peace:

      Yikes!  10 amps through and 18 gauge wire it at the limit.  If I were to use this light, I'd control it through a relay.

      You say you tested on a 2008 and no stator growl but on the website says no guarantee on the growl.  How long was it tested?  Or was it just fitted onto the bike and sent running?
