    I noticed a previous posted had mentioned putting them in "upside down" initially...How can I tell which is the correct way? The instructions don't say.

    yea i did that as well , the beam pattern was really far away from the bike. and there was a dark patch in front of the bike. turned the bulb around and it sorted it out.

    the bulb has two sides, one has a metal bracket on the end to direct the light, ill check when i get home from work, which position the metal bracket is in.

    The forward 3 leds have a little silver "cup", make sure the cup is under the leds when mounted.

    The leds at the front, non connector end, are the low beam. Some of the light hits the cup and goes up, bounces off the reflector onto the ground in front of you.

    Hope that makes sense.

    You can't have high and low beams on together however, like when hold the pass switch for example. The low beams shut off when you do that but it's no biggie.
    The high beam isn't any brighter, it just raises the beam to light up further down the road.

    May be a little more expensive than the ones you listed because they come as a pair.
    BTW read the fitting instructions The 3 pronged ring twists off, you fit the rubber seal, refit the ring, install.
    The heatsink isn't much larger than the original plug so they fit nicely. Just a matter of tucking the wiring into the back of the headlight unit.


    There's a few types listed as Nighteye H4, these are the ones I fitted!

    I just had a read of the bulb details on that link you gave. Part of the description was this below---



    • Cooling System

    Uses a fine copper heat pipe cooling solution to tranfer the heat from LED to the heat sink.
    Assembles a fast rotating fan in the bottom of the light body to make sure the heat can be tranfer to air rapidly.


    Have I read it correctly as you say--No Fan ??

    They use a passive radiator, Col. No fan.
