I agree about the brightness issue. If you've going to be taking her apart again .....  :164:

Regarding other road users flashing you; that was my gauge as to where to set the lights, to be as high as possible. I'd go half a turn up and then ride for an hour, and keep doing so until I got continually flashed, or cars pulled over to allow me to pass.

First set of pics are in the Gallery.  Low beam arrives later this morning and I will show how that goes.  Have to wait till this evening for beam patterns but that may not happen for a day or two.

They sent me ANOTHER set of H11's marked as H7's.  Kinda pisses me off.

I do see that I'm going to have to have some fun with my refund.   The vendor and customer service have both been sending me return mailers, a couple of them.  At least while I'm messing with this I can put in some LED position lights too.  Keep this up and I'll look like Santa Claus coming down the street.  :001:

I installed an Aukee H7 this morning.   About the same specs as the Holoon.  The low beam patter looks pretty good in the garage and I probably won't mess with it.  The Aukee's H7 mounting plate will spin separately from the LED/Fan assembly when means you can change the angle of the low beam pattern.  Don't get me wrong, IT AIN'T INFINITELY ADJUSTABLE by a long shot.  Looks more like you can tilt it in comparison to horizontal.

Comparison of Stock and Replacement LED's
H11 High Beam


H7 Low Beam


Low Beam is easier to install.  Ring on replacement will come off making clips easier to install
BUT you don't have to remove it.



Stuffing decoder and plug behind reflector is harder with H11




There are more pic's in LED Replacement Album

Not the best but the best I could do in my garage.  I'll have to wait until night for better pics of the pattern.
I'll try to do that against my garage door.

I have replaced the Aukee H7 with the a Holoon H7.  They install exactly the same except the Holoon allows you to adjust the beam pattern a lot better.


YES!  I said I finally got the H7 I ordered.  Amazon sent me THREE H7 which were actually mismarked H11 boxes.  Got two packages today.  The third Amazon screw up and Holoon sent me the correct bulb directly to my house.  Holoon does its best to make things right.   I returned the Aukee so now I have paid for one pair of correct H11's from Amazon and everything else is in the process of being credited back to me.  The Holoon H7 is a freebee courtesy of Holoon.
So now I have three H11 spares and one H7 spare and all seems to working OK.  The Aukee is OK but is a tad harder to install the decoder and plug than the Holoon.  Both H7 allow you to adjust the adapter ring such that you can change the pattern.  Not much but some.

Well done on your persistence to resolve this fjrod
You have some great results with the LEDs and although they are a bit of a pain to get in the housings it can be done  :046:
Great photos and explanation of how to do it  :062:

Great work  :031:

Can you show a photo of the dipped beam pattern, against your garage door, with and without the AUX lights?
