    It is setup for hi/low. There are two emitters, one on top and bottom. Low is just the top emitter, and high is both.

    At night, it's whiter and brighter than stock, but the cutoff is soft. I didn't get flashed at all, though we're talking neighborhood driving. The spill over the cutoff isn't overly bright, but I would like to raise the beam slightly which I'm not yet comfortable doing at least until I know what it's like when oncoming.

    I noticed the heat sink gets warm while I was taking the pictures. But I had no trouble handling with bare hands after the light had been on for 5-10 minutes. If this thing was a real cooker I'm sure it would have heated up in that time.

    Your link only goes to eBay motors. No specific seller.

    Seller name is epartsgogo and the item is a CREE H4 headlight kit.

    It is a two driver kit, yes. It will allow you to install in two bikes.

    I'll have to get some more night time riding in. My area isn't real conducive to "real" night riding. This weekend should be different though, and after my last night-trip from CA back to LV the difference should be obvious. The stock headlight is miserably dim.

    Riding around the neighborhood at night (which is well lit with street lights) it's obviously better.

    I've also been contemplating an easy modification to add a small reflector cantilevered off the front of the body of the LED headlight that should act both as a clean cut-off, as well as adding more light at the 'head' of the beam just below the cutoff. Just need to tap a hole in the face of the body and get me some thin sheet metal to make the reflector.
