Ok guys, my LED lamps are ordered. But it will be few days before I receive since I went with the free shipping option from Amazon. Ordered the Wiipro branded lights and at $92 for a set, I finally succumbed. But those Hog Lights from Down Under look really nice.
Anyhoo, as I start thinking about the install, I notice the position lamp bulb is independent from the stock headlight body. What are you guys doing with that position lamp connector? Tape off with some electrical tape and tuck it in?
If you leave the position lamp holder intact, be sure to insert an insulating material (I used a small piece of a credit card) where the globe used to be inserted. If it gets squashed behind the headlights, it will short out and blow the fuse for your tail lights.
So finally got around to installing the Wiipro LEDs I purchased last Fall. Life gets in the way sometimes.
My installs are never smooth and this one was no different. I did follow the advice of others - bent back the tab on the interior retaining ring and taped off the position lamp bulb socket. However, I had to pull wiring out through the rear of bucket to make room for the new headlight. Once all buttoned up, I stuffed as muck wiring back and reinserted the rubber plug.
Overall, I think a nice upgrade. Can’t wait to road test!
I rode a little over 100 miles last Saturday but I have not tested them at night yet. I’m pleased to report NO condensation build up. My riding buddy said they looked good.
I’ve been intending to take a ride at dusk but the weather has not cooperated. But honestly, I do very little riding at night so not a big concern. I’ll report back after a late evening ride as I do need to check if the buckets need adjustment.
Excellent news on the lack of condensation. Thanks for giving us the updates as time permits. I'm trying to write up a review on my new Mustang seat (featuring a weekend ride to the mountains) so I know how challenging it can be to carve out time to put together these posts. Thanks again!
I just bought my Thunderbird. It came with a Denali headlight and tonight I took it for my first nighttime ride. I made one adjustment to the light (it was focused about 20 feet in front) and I could only ride with the high beam. I raised it up but am not sure I can get the light output I really want from it. I probably raised it a little too much, so I'm going to drop it a little before I order something new.
Does anyone else have (or had) the Denali light and have any other bulb they can compare it to?
For those that had to adjust a non-Storm setup, how much did you adjust it and did you use anything to "measure" what you did?
I feel like the light is aimed too low. Guess I could just crank it up a bit at a time and see what works.
Hello all. Total Noob here when it comes to wiring. The old headlight has a triple spade connector which plugs right in to my Amazon LED light. What do I do with the two remaining connectors off the old light? Both singles. One is black wire and the other is yellow wire with female spade connectors on both ends. SOS!
Hi all, I just bought a '16 TBird Storm and I own a '07 Speed Triple. So I have 4 bulbs to replace. Amazon indicates that these are compatible with my motorcycles. Any opinions or cautions about swapping to these LED bulbs?
