  • Has anyone tried H3 LED replacement bulbs in their passing lamps?

    I'm fine with being able to see at night and I don't want to change the look of the stock lighting by switching to Truck-lights, etc. I'm more interested in being *seen* during the day, especially while lane splitting, so to help me stand out a little more, I was thinking of changing my passing lamp's H3 bulbs to yellow, when I came across some new LED bulbs that are a direct replacement for the stock H3s. Ideally, I'd like something brighter than stock if possible, but it's so damn hard to tell what LED really look like from online photos, especially in a reflector designed for incandescent bulbs... So what say you? Has anyone tried them? If so, any recommendations?

    Side note, if I do stick with incandescent, what's the brightest you can reliably run on stock passing lamps?

    If incandescent are used it’ll go easier on the stator and wiring to the lamps when the 35 watt lamps are installed.

      I have my passing lamps angled out to the sides a bit, maybe 15 degrees or so? That way the left and right turn idiots see me. Also helps for deer too. I use LED's and they draw a lot less watts so not sure what Bikerron is talking about?

        Guess you didn’t read all of Doc’s post. Or comprehend it. I’m talking about his last statement.

        doh! Missed that... Can't fathom why anyone wouldn't use LED's these days.
