H4 led headlights on ebay??

I was wondering if anyong had tried using these h4 led headlights they sell on ebay. instead of using 55/60 watts they use around 6 watts. They sound like they would be a good alternative for cutting down wattage. Also was wondering if they are bright as a regular bulb. They use something like 120 leds. Plus they are cheap for led. They also have around a 50,000 hour lifespan. I don't think that bike has that much of a lifespan LOL!!!

So I need the laser induced high output liquid crystal plutonics with cold infusion drivers coupled with a flux capacitor. They should be advanced enough for the Vulcan 750 LOL!!!!! What do you mean advanced enough?? I have a led flash light that has a very high output light. So I think they might be worth looking into if you want to save some wattage. I was not trying to offend you,but I was just trying to throw out some humor. Just was not sure what you meant. Here is one that is for sale on ebay:
2 Car H4 120 SMD LED Head Light Headlight Bulb Lamp 12V
Here is a video on youtube of the bulb:

They are bright, in fact legaly blinding. But they don't have enuff spread. They are great for up to 10 feet, after that you got nothing. If they are cheap, get them to try if you like. But, I promise you they won't stay in as your primary drive light at night.

Well led might be a good replacement for the brake light bulbs and the turn signal bulbs. Anyone know the size of these bulbs,or the model numbers? I think that these might work:
1156 BULB 2 PIECES 50 SMD CAR LED BACKUP REVERSE TAIL LIGHT 12V WHITE L-1189

You need two 1157's in red for the tail. White works but some of the light output cancels out by the red housing, red led is best on red housing.

Signals, not sure what bulbs, most likely 1156 rear signals and 1157 front signals and go with amber on those stock lenses.

Thanks for the size's. Found the bulbs I need. I should reduce the total wattage from the light bulbs way down. Even if the headlights don't work, the break lights and turn signals will reduce alot. The led bulbs take 4 watts compared to 27.

Hmmm LED lights can't work as headlights.. I beg to differ.. we (the millitary) have been running LED Headlights for about 5 years now.. and they are so much brighter than even projection headlights.
