that sure seems to pump out some light!

would it work with pre-2001 bikes?
how many watt is it?
is the video demonstrating high and low beam?
DOT legal?

looks to be a great upgrade to the weak stock headlight.

Yes, this kit will work with all years of TW200.

The video shows both the low beam and high beam.

The low beam has two 10W LED/projectors (left and right) and one 15W LED/projector for the high beam (center). The low beam stays on when the high beam is powered. So that's 20W on low beam and 35W on high beam. The manufacturer claims the following specs, not huge lumen numbers but easily twice the output of the stock headlight and at a lower amperage (leaving more watts available for aux. lights, grip heaters, etc).

Low: 1,100 Lumens
High: 1,800 Lumens
Color Temperature: 6000k
Lifespan: 50,000 Hours

No DOT approval due to an optional daytime running light that glows red. It is wired separately so it will only function if you go out of your way to wire it to a 12V source.

That's strange. I've received a few international orders this weekend without issue. Maybe try refreshing your browser?

You can always call me and order over the phone. We could also go through PayPal or personal check.

I tried to pull the trigger on this but the site does not ship to Canada........:(

How do we work around this?

I would rather have a low lumen light that puts all the light on the road where I need it, than a high lumen light that scatters it everywhere but the road.

What is a black headlight?
You need to step out of your white headlight world! These are multi-cultural motorcycles. ;)

I see Harley-Davidson is been selling aftermarket “black” headlights (the leds are clear) for $400 and $575.

Hey John - nice product.

No DOT approval due to an optional daytime running light that glows red. It is wired separately so it will only function if you go out of your way to wire it to a 12V source.

Does it function as a normal white daytime running light without the optional red one wired?
What do riders use the red one for?

Thanks and cheers

No, DRL is all or nothing. I've asked the manufacturer if the factory can install clear LEDs in place of the red LEDs.
