I have replaced all the 1157 tail light bulbs on all my bikes (3) with 2357 bulbs because the brake filiment was 25% brighter with only a small increase in Amps, 2.1 to 2.2.

After reading several posts about different LEDs, I bought two at $20 to try.

Here I compare the single 2357 (bright) bulb to the new LED on my Dual Sport. I'm sold!



Next I'll change both bulbs in my 1100.

Yup - I put these in my taillight to replace older-style (non-SMD) LED bulbs I had in there. The older LED bulbs were brighter than the original incandescent, and the new SMD (13 watt) LED's are brightest of all - they really catch your eye. The Goldwing needs side-firing LEDs in order to fill out the entire taillight lens using the internal reflector - using the forward-firing LEDs you just end up with two little red circles on the lens.
