WHY ARE YOU YELLING? 

 

Hehehe, welcome to the FZ-07 club! I personally had to cut my rubber housing a little bit to fit the fan motor and heatsink attached to the LED bulb. It wasn't difficult. From what I know, that housing is made for halogen bulbs that don't have the additional parts like a fan motor and heatsink. So anything like an HID or LED will require you to cut the housing to make space.

 

I personally l prefer Cyclop's bulbs installed on both of my bikes as their long-term quality and customer service is top notch. Here's their 10K Lumen LED bulb for $79.95. And here's a quick installation video from YouTube.

Another vote for Cyclops. Got their H4 type bulbs in two bikes now. So much light spread I forget to even use high beam - honestly. And I've never been flashed by oncoming traffic. I drove towards my neighbor as a test and while he said the light was very white, it didn't dazzle his eyes at all. Fabulous product.

 

The bulb comes apart in to two halves allowing it to fit inside the stock rubber boot. Install the Cyclops base like a typical bulb- reinstall stock rubber boot- install bulb in to base. 

 

Easy peasy!

OMG, why didn't I think of doing that?

I have the older 7K Lumen version on both of my bikes and never thought to take the halves apart 🤣

Please show me one that has a totally even and clean projection. No Bike LED light that I have used or tested has accomplished that. 

 

All things considered, Cyclops is the way to go. They are a vendor here because we have found their kit to be the best LED option for the MT-07 and their customer service is way beyond anyone else.

 Old thread but I need to point out that the Phillips ( now LumiLed) LED bulbs now do give a clean even spread with a proper low beam cutoff with the segmented reflectors like ours. They do this by the emmitters exactly emulating the size and position of the of QI tungsten filaments. I though I had posted pics but I will check.

That's also a personal choice. I've seen lights where the beam was what you could call "focused" and had a distinct edge to the beam, it didn't allow the light to spread out but even though I liked in some instances because IT WAS more focused, (E.G. looking straight ahead) I didn't like the fact that when I lean to turn the light doesn't spread out and therefore leaves huge dark spots ahead of me and I seriously hate that. My Cyclops at least spreads the light out some to help light up the turns a little rather than none at all. Granted, it's not perfect on doing that but it's a start.

 

@AkraRex  I've owned the older, 3800 lumen Cyclops bulb and it worked fine, no complaints. I've had the 10k Cyclops for months now and love it, it's very bright and no complaints from oncoming drivers. Take a look at the video I posted under Vendors/Cyclops Adventure Sports and get an idea of just how bright the bulb is and what the pattern looks like.

Hi, I used this site and am very happy. The LED replacement in an incandescent/halogen application was thought out and it works mint.

Similar approach as the Phillips ones. emmitters emulate QI tungstan coil filiments in position, size and orientation. Should give correct focus and cutoff if oriented correctly.  If not check to see if they have a rotation lock screw and try rotating it.

I bought the:

 

Motorcycle H4 LED Fanless Headlight Conversion Kit with Compact Heat Sink - 2,000 Lumens - Cool White

It was $35 USD.

 

This is a superior LED made for existing lens reflector on FZ-07.

 

I did not get indicator lights, the headlamp was the most important.

Another vote for the Cyclops - I have the older 7K and it's silly how bright it is compared to stock - Imagine the stock bulb is a birthday candle, the Cyclops would be a searchlight.  The new 10K might be bordering on stupid bright, but I'm a fan of bright,  so...

Sorry I can't give comparison pics, but a search should reveal older posts with photos.

(Off topic, but if you are sticking with stock blinkers, but want them to be seen, I upgraded to LED bulbs for those and am impressed with these. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EEI9LLM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 with this flasher relay:  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00RM26LXO/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)
