    Running 75mph on a mountain pass, does the new light put out usable light or is it more of a reflective light? I have an LED light now that works fairly well but find I am still overdriving the light on some night runs.

    I'm going to venture to guess that the response here will give you a positive on that. There are some good LED's though depending on which one you have and your adjure.

    I have never had an LED on this bike, but I had LED on other bikes and this is definitely superior to it! This things distance and width is amazing.. jmo.

    I do think that he always finds all the deals and all the goods that a lot of people dont know about.. some he won't share where he gets em from, lol, but if u ever need n e thing he will definitely help.. always give credit where it's due

    So this is my second one. First was a different brand. It started getting cloudy. I replaced with the same one referenced in this post. Light I'd great but is getting cloudy spots too. Not condensation, but The lens itself.

    Plastic is going to oxidize. But you can put a layer of clear vinyl over it. That will stop the pitting & oxidizing. Easy to change out too

    I don't know, I had a faulty one sent to me, sent it back and it was replaced with a new one.. but as stated above, it's a bang for the buck.. not a huge methodical investment.. jmo

    It's not oxidizing. It's actually in the plastic. I post some pics later.

    Prolly caused by the heat inside the sealed unit.

    Strange...im at 6500 miles and its fine.

    Anyone getting condensation inside I would think is a defect. Not sure there should be a difference plastic or glass as far as any condensation goes.

    Its not condensation, I've seen the same thing he's talking about on car head lights. The inside is clouding over or turning whitish

    Very not happy right now. I've had this headlight 5 weeks or so and the left rectangular low beam fell out. There's also a white burn on the inside of the lense. [​IMG]

    I'm sorry about that they do have a 1 year warranty you can reach out to the seller and Amazon to get you a replacement.

    I don't know what would cause that white part.
