    ok so i got a headlight idea from a member over at supermotojunkie (see thread below)...not even sure that this is doable yet, just spitballing...



    http://www.supermotojunkie.com/showt...adlight-my-way



    i was thinking of doing something similar to this by modifying one of these headlight cowls (below links) or some type of number plate and remove the lights to install 2 of these 3-up led lights and use one of them as a high beam (even though they would be the same output)...any electrical gurus think this would be possible on a TW?...i assume i would probably have to test everything on my bike to figure out what i'm using for wattage and see how much i have left to play with...not sure there is an exact way to convert wattage (measure of power) to lumens (measure of light)...i saw something that you would have to have the efficiency of the leds in lumens/watt and i can't find this number...oh and don't care about the legality of it as i would make it totally reversible if i wanted to put the stocker back on...

    You know if these are street legal and if they would really be bright enough to drive at night where there are no street lights?

    correct but is anything we do street legal...i put on new signals and a tail light on my bike and none of it is DOT approved why not add one more thing...plus the chopper shop that inspects my bike doesn't seem to care



    i wonder if i could find street legal leds that are installed in cars and use those...the problem would be that the housing/projector isn't DOT...so not matter what it wouldn't be DOT so why try...

I notice the letters "DOT" don't seem to appear anywhere on that page either, but it seems like that ship has sailed on this thread anyway!



    It would be pretty cool to see one of those peering out from a stock TW headlight cowl!
