  • The Jimbonaut: I had a look on fortnine and there is a direct plug in bulb - [link]   Think that'll do it?
    Oct 05, 2017, 10:29:10
  • Maritime: Jim I think Matt(Sonrier) who runs Sparkmoto has a bulb and the cable is a heat sink and there is no big fan etc. the one you linked may not work right in your housing.
    Oct 05, 2017, 10:36:39
  • Maritime: This [link]
    Oct 05, 2017, 10:37:12
  • Maritime: Matt's a good guy and he can ship into Canada without costing a fortune.
    Oct 05, 2017, 10:37:39
  • Cookie: +1 for for Matt (I'd forgotten that he sells those).  As to that bulb that you posted, I tried something like that in my car once. Got me 25 minutes of runtime before they melted, I lost both low beams and to this day there are are still tiny LED emitters rattling about in my headlamps lol.
    Oct 05, 2017, 10:42:21
  • The Jimbonaut: Cool, thanks for the link I'll get in touch with Matt.  Only thing - there is literally zero room inside my bucket as it is and this looks like it'll take up more room than there is to spare!
    Oct 05, 2017, 10:55:24
  • Maritime: Yep Cookie, without a heat sink they detonate pretty quick
    Oct 05, 2017, 11:00:40
  • Sonreir: o/
    Oct 05, 2017, 12:30:55
  • Sonreir: My ears were burning... lol
    Oct 05, 2017, 12:31:02
  • The Jimbonaut: Ha!  Hey there, heard you're the go-to guy for LED replacement bulbs.  I took a look, the only thing I'm not sure about is the space in my bucket - there's literally none of it
    Oct 05, 2017, 12:45:49
  • The Jimbonaut: I'm going to check - I bought a halogen 55/60 watt bulb yesterday - think my electrical system (OEM '81 CB750K) will be up to the job?
    Oct 05, 2017, 12:46:34
  • Sonreir: Possible... 55W is a big draw over stock. I usually recommend against it, but you can test to see if it will work just by installing a voltmeter onto your bike.
    Oct 05, 2017, 13:14:31
  • Sonreir: For anything made without a fuel pump, I usually just tell folks to toss in an LED and forget about high wattage halogens. The newer tech is better in almost every way.
    Oct 05, 2017, 13:15:20
  • Sonreir: The heat sinks do take up more room to be sure, but the newer style heat sink (looks like a braided metal ribbon) can bend pretty easily or even exit the bucket and just hang out.
    Oct 05, 2017, 13:16:12
  • Cookie: That's what I have - the ribbon-style heat sink. I had to relocate a couple of the bulkier connectors, but it's all in there.
    Oct 05, 2017, 13:55:00
  • The Jimbonaut: That's great info, thanks man.  Gotta be honest - if you're at one end of the electrical knowledge spectrum consider me squarely at the other end - installing a voltmeter onto my bike has as much chance of happening as me speaking fluent Russian within 3 hours.  Electricity = mystification
    Oct 05, 2017, 18:17:32
  • The Jimbonaut: Think I'll go the safe route and order that LED from you mate =)
    Oct 05, 2017, 18:17:50
  • Maritime: Oh I would love to be at Barber right now with all my DTT friends and Family, but I am stuck at work sadly. Have some beer for me all Y'all that get to go!
    Oct 06, 2017, 10:30:39
  • The Jimbonaut: ^^^ What Maritime said - I haven't met you guys yet but looking forward to hopefully putting that to rights this time next year.  Have fun and keep it shiny side up!
    Oct 06, 2017, 10:43:28
  • Maritime: Hope tropical storm Nate doesn't ruin the party Saturday/Sunday!
    Oct 06, 2017, 14:07:52
  • JustinLonghorn: I'm green with envy.
    Oct 06, 2017, 23:07:50
  • AgentX: fellas
    Oct 07, 2017, 22:35:32
  • AgentX: <---also wishing could have made it to Barber
    Oct 07, 2017, 22:35:49
  • SONIC.: There was a distinct and disturbing lack of Mikes at barber this year.
    Oct 09, 2017, 18:12:16
  • irk miller: Ha, funny.  There were zero Mikes at Barber.  I hadn't thought of that.  Must be some weird profiling thing going on.
    Oct 10, 2017, 08:39:24
  • Maritime: We all knew Nate was going to piss on the party and we'd lose valuable drinking time so we didn;t bother
    Oct 10, 2017, 08:42:06
  • irk miller: Well that bush is still alive, Mike.  There was no one around to piss on it.
    Oct 10, 2017, 09:45:33
  • SONIC.: Usually you can just call anyone mike and have at least a 50% chance of being right
    Oct 10, 2017, 11:02:47
  • Maritime: Ha, both true
    Oct 10, 2017, 11:17:28
  • advCo: howdy folks
    Oct 10, 2017, 13:07:38
  • Maritime: Hey Nick
    Oct 10, 2017, 13:09:12
  • Maritime: How was the drive home from Kiley's?
    Oct 10, 2017, 13:09:26
  • advCo: Pretty good. We escaped the rain about 2 hours out which was nice
    Oct 10, 2017, 13:10:00
  • advCo: Ended up bringing the CT90, which barely made it through the weekend LOL
    Oct 10, 2017, 13:10:22
  • Maritime: Nice, Kind of glad I didn't get to go as it would have been cut short and would have been short to begin with
    Oct 10, 2017, 13:22:36
  • advCo: Kayla and I both had to work Thurs and got a late start on Friday. Didn't get in until 11:00 pm, so we really only had Saturday. Still had a good time, and worth going out
    Oct 10, 2017, 13:24:56
  • Maritime: Yep, I did that the first year I went. was worth it. If I could have gotten off friday I'd have driven down in the car, riding would have been out of the question/
