It's impossible to judge color temp from headlight -> camera -> monitor. Don't even try. (I'm sort of a camera / high-end computer screen nerd.)

They might whiten up a bit more when they get a few hours on them. Check your beam pattern for sure before you go out at night much so you don't get a ticket. I'm sure you will find that the left light now switches between high beam and higher beam.

Just compare to the whiteness of his aftermarket led front triangle light and you will see that they are quite blue.

so these are the Dual Low/High beam headlights from HardRacing? Ive been wondering about these, does the left headlight throw a higher light pattern compared to the right? and when u hit the high beam or flash to pass, does it only move the left headlight or do they both flash?

It's dual low beams only. When I click on the high beams or flash to pass only the left (clutch side) light changes. The right side (throttle side) light doesn't change.

Garage
really curious to see the beam pattern. If you can keep both lights on w/o blinding traffic, this will be my next upgrade.

Hi everyone, here are a couple pics at night against my garage. It's pretty close to the garage - maybe 8-10 feet away so you can see the hot spot on the garage. My son took the pics with my iPhone off to the side so its not the greatest pic. We both took turns standing in front of the bike at different heights to see what the glare would be like. It's bright but there doesn't seem to be too much spillage of light off to the sides.

Low Beam:



High Beam:


Obviously its not the same comparison as the pic above because it's not the same distance. If I knew how far away to shoot the pics that might help. I'm guessing it has to be at least 30 feet away?

In any case, I can take more pics of anyone wants them. I had kind of a long day so I was just being lazy, lol.

It's hard to tell anything about the pattern from so close. Can you find any wall of a building in a parking lot and post a photo of the beam at 20 yards?
