Just added these to both machines. Did side by side comparison before swapping second Atv and LED’s were much brighter. Thought I read somewhere stock Halogen bulb is 900 lumen per bulb. These are 1800 lumen per bulb. Much less draw a plus.

How are those bulbs working out Sprotsman?
Have you used them much?
If yours hold up I may try a set.
For the money spent on these I couldn’t ask for more. I still say brighter than OE.

So far great. Remember using flashlights with a couple of D batteries? That’s what the OE bulbs looked like compared to the LED’s. A much more white light. And brighter. When I first saw them on Ebay I think he was asking $20.00 for two, but accepted $16.00 on bid. Now he’s asking for $16.00 and still accepting bids. Maybe he’ll take $14.00 for two. If you have 2 bikes just buy 3 sets as you’ll need 6. BTW I did the Sylvania Zevo 3157R upgrade for the taillights. That to was a worthwhile upgrade. I tried another brand and it didn’t work, Zevo’s first try. Much lower draw for all lights now.

I'm going to try the Zevo tail lights on your recommendation and see how they work. I also ordered a pair of LED's that appear to have a more slim heat sink and claimed 5500 lumens per pair.

The ones that you have listed would be good in the pod due to minimal space available.

Walmart online were best price on Zevo 3157R’s. Make sure there is no “+” symbol on side of LED bulb. The plus symbol represents the first generation zevo and will not work. Chances of coming across those are slim now. Make sure whatever headlight LED you get are close in size to one’s I got in pic below. I tried another brand but diameter was too large for headlight pod. This size is also same in bulb height to OE bulb.

I put in the ZEVO's and I'd say that they are OK. Not a huge difference in brightness. I put the LED's in the low beam headlights and they are definitely brighter. I haven't checked the beam pattern yet, but I'm more looking to be seen in daylight anyhow.

I end up out after dark ice fishing so that is a plus. I didn't look at an amp comparison. I guess that's a plus on the headlights. Tail lights the LED's being quicker to respond is a plus.
