This is only my thought's but I don't think you'll get led bulbs as replacement for any halogen bulbs, they generally only locate one way so that the beam goes in the right direction and is projected by the reflector

also you need about 20 led's to take the place of a 15w bulb, therefore if it was possible you would need approx 80 led's if they were bright enough and coul be focussed correctly

great idea but I think it's a nonstarter, then again I could be wrong...........

If I am then put me down for 2 x H1 and 1 H4 all three with equivalent 100w rating, I like to see where I'm going as well as blinding cage drivers

I don't think you can get a LED replacement for a headlight or driving light bulb, at least I haven't seen one.The rest of the bulbs can be replaced with LEDs to reduce the power load.

I saw them on the place Rudy bought his from. I emailed them on the price and they never got back to me. I know they wouldnt work as driving lights but was thinking of front visability on one of my other bikes. The regular h3 bulbs dont seem to handle vibration well and are rather expensive. JB

This is from the Superbrightleds.com site (daytime running lamps only):

Hey, JBZ, you are right, they don't show the H3 in the buy section. I hadn't checked before because I wasn't looking for daylight only lights. Bug em with another email, maybe they have some now.

These bulbs are suitable for Daytime Running Lamps only - they do not produce enough light for useful illumination at night

Sadly true, but if this isn't you, consider using the following 3 tools:

1. Tails Live DVD/Flash anonymity OS

2. Use a VPN connection when in public or home like

3. Send Text messages, pics and vids privately
Threema app (iOS or Android, $1.99)
I use them all. Feel free to ask.
