LED 3 bar headlights anyone? What is your opinion?

I want to do something like this on my FZ-07. Anyone here done something similar?

I've not done something like that on any bike but my concern would be make sure that they throw a proper beam pattern for proper lighting of the road at night. That type of light doesn't look focused enough to be a headlight replacement.

I think that bike is more for show than street. I've seen those mounted on pu trucks and golf carts around here and although they are very bright and make you very visible they don't throw a long beam so they suck for lighting up the road any distance away and increase your chances of running into someone/something at speed. If I recall they aren't legal either and that's no big deal, some illegal things are overlooked on bikes, like pipes but when a cop is practically blinded by one of those like they do me I would bet good money a cop is going to do a u-turn and tell you you need to remove them. They are intended for off-road, not street because they are so very, very bright.

I'll go on to say that if you had those aaaand a regular headlight and could turn those off when vehicles were approaching you might get away with it. I wouldn't mind that myself on a dark back road, I'm always concerned with not seeing an animal come from the side of the road in time and crash into it. Can't say I care for the looks much, though. It's got it's cool factor and look kinda nice on that particular bike but it would be a little much for this bike, IMHO but do whatever pleases you.

Thanks for the input. In particular I was looking at some projector and flood combo lights instead of those.

 

Maybe have two lights as a projector flood combo to be the low beam and one light be strictly projector and have it come on as well for the high beam.

Or how about the MT-10 lights?

Getting all the parts would be close to $800 so way out of my budget.

 

MT03 light assembly and brackets will be about $200

Would be way off my budget too! I had an MT-03 and I liked that headlight design.

I'm thinking I can go with the MT03 light and still be able to retain the stock cowl piece that holds the turn signals. I will start looking for the best price to get the parts on order
