man you think you have seen everything then dillon gets more retarded. how can you possibly tell what the idle is from a still picture? my idle is stupid slow. its a 4v light on a 12v bike. it idles like the stock headlight is off. 3 aaa battery .5w vs 25w stock. it NEVER dims. for the electrically challanged try to run the stock headlight with 3aaa batteries. it won't do anything close to 800lm becuse it won't light at all.
>Not a bad output, but the optics seem to be not very homogenized. A la the weird strip of brightness pointing straight down<
no dillon its just a shitty cell pic. 800lm as advertized and the lens is adjustable.
if I was to do it all over again I would have siliconed the projector to the original headlight. (break the glass and remove filliment ). people are not used to the projector look. looks stupid on a bus too.
don't forget the cap. it makes dc led bulbs last by filtering out ac to ground. bigger is better. you need to run this part with your led conversions.
yes I run a Zener. but a tiny one. it drives the emitter follower 10a bjt transistor. costs less than a buck. but that's me. you need a minimum of 2 already made parts to run these bulbs. an r/r of the correct type (full wave/half wave) and a cap.
