looks to be a good deal so let us know how it turns out, shoot, i might get two, one for the 74 and one for the 01.
the only issue i find is the kelvin temp. if it is in the blue range and 6k+ is getting there, it has a tendency to wash out in a pitch black night. but the ratings are only relevant and vary greatly, so let us know.

I was just a woodworking stair builder and know nothing about kelvins, but I'll keep you posted after receiving and installing it. I'm hoping it's an improvement over stock.

Damn Jim, for that price how can you go wrong? I just put LED’s everywhere but the headlight for now, it could come soon.

I bought one very similar and it was a huge improvement. Having said that, I do not do a lot of night riding. The deer are crazy around here. I fear them more than cagers.

We too have a big problem with deer. I was hit by a deer while riding. I'm lucky to be here, I spent 2 1/2 weeks in the hospital. I don't ride in the dark anymore, but I thought I would try this light anyway. For the price, I thought what the hell.

I also installed this Bright Ass tail light about a year ago. I got a great buy from a buddy who traded bikes and no longer needed it. One of my fears is getting rear ended at a stop light.
