The light are MR16 (I know, this isn't the best) BUT, now we have LED MR16 available in option. So you can have 4 light LED of 5 watts each, and a better result than oem 35w. The basic kit will have 35w mr16 (2x low / 2x high). The good thing is that the oem 2 pins connector will come with the kit. Same as for the rear tail light kit, it comes with the oem 6 pins connector.

There's way more room under the cover.

Part will be on the web site this week. We wanted to show the product before the week end. I'll let you know ASAP.

mr16 are the worse lights to choose from although great because they are 12vdc

We used to install those years ago in light fixtures and they burn out like crazy, and the socket pin design starts to loosen over time and arc inside, get hot and fail
Thats on light fixtures that do not move at all

On a bike that vibrates im sure its even worse


But the led should last much longer, not sure on light output though

So many nice led lights right now should look into purchasing complete lights with built in lens and just put those into the body panel, as long as you can find a good supply of those

that way they have a legit reflector and lens cover on them and probably alot tougher

A 5-10 watt LED should be extremely bright if they are of high quality.

A Cree 7 watt MR16 LED (runs on 12Vac) is about half as bright as a typical halogen car headlight. Two of them could be quite a bit brighter than stock in terms of lumens, but the beam pattern will be important. Can't focus too much on throw or spill.

If we could get some side by side shots of the beam pattern between the stock Zuma and your setup, it would be hugely helpful.

And I agree with zumike about the halogen MR16s. I would highly suggest you recommend your customers who ride at night to purchase the LED option.

how well can the led run off ac power
ive done some tests and they seem to flicker bad on ac at low voltage

unless installing a cap could prevent that

We try many LED MR16, some LED can work between 12 and 18 volt, those are great and will not blown even with a hi rev engine. But it's hard to keep high quality distributor. We've seen so much bad product in there.

We try hard to find something else. But we need to stay affordable with the product, it's why we opted for those MR16 for basic model. If someone know another bulb that would be better. I'm open to suggestion.

When do you figure you'll have the front pieces done? I see there still in pre order on your site.
