    LED H4 HI/LOW bulbs

    I was looking at a HID kit for my CB1000R, but i stumbled across LED H4 hi/low bulbs.
    They sit between hids and upgraded halogen bulbs in brightness
    easier to install, as they just plug and play like a stock bulb.
    The only downside is they have a big heat sink at the back of the bulb.

    https://www.amazon.com/YITAMOTOR-Whi...=led+h4+hi+low

    has any one fitted one to their CB1000R ?
    Can any one advise how much room is behind the head light unit? I'm currently working abroad so cant go and look myself.

    Thanks

    I fitted the Nighteye H4's. I was quite impressed with them for LED replacements, they're certainly brighter than standard and have a good beam pattern. Even passed its last MOT test with them in.
    Had it in a few months and all is well. They don't have a tiny fan to go wrong.
    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!

    Really glad you like them, would have been a bit embarrassing if you'd said they were crap after I'd recommended them

    (Though I don't think I'd recommend them for a car, bit of interference through the radio apparently, judging by reports)

    Thanks jonsky7. I fitted these exact bulbs over the weekend and tested it out last night as well. Very easy to fit. Just follow jonsky7's instructions. I love it. Definitely brighter than stock. Had cars moving away as i approached. I originally fitted them upside down but it was an easy fix. Highly recommended.

    I hope those cars MOVING AWAY weren't disappearing into a ditch to avoid those Super bright lights.---------------
