That looks good. I started using H4 Philips Lumiled bulbs in my Vision 110 years ago to good effect before changing to an OSRAM LEDriving bulb recently. Thereís no ballast to worry about with the OSRAM so Iím considering doing an upgrade on the CBF now.
Do you have a voltmeter fitted to your bike? Iím wondering how much of a difference it will make on the charging system and if the reg/rec will have to work harder now to expel any excess power not used by the lower current draw.
Whatís the beam pattern like?

I didn't know they were manufacturers of Oxy-Acetylene lights.

Sorry I'll get my coat :164:

😁 love it. Yes Iíve just read that back. Maybe I should have just said Honda Vision scooter. They were a good LED bulb though.
