    New G6 H4 LED bulb with SHIELD is now availible - no glare no scatter.

    We did it. It works. You no longer have to do it yourself. I have put 17,000 miles on the prototype and these are better.

    ------------------ update ---------------------------------------------------

    ( mellow ?? - I put in the links to the USA amazon sites and when I save it they get redirected to the canadian amazon site. ??

    readers: try copying the links below and dropping them into your browser to find the USA links..

    I also noticed that some of these sites are running out of the H4 version of the bulb. Gee... I wonder why.......)

    New G6 shielded H4 LED bulb is now available on amazon by Evitek!

    best in the middle:

    https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B017M566T4?...lnk-ca-c696-20

    or

    https://www.amazon.com/Evitek-Headli...M8RA7B5S8H0VJV

    or this one with a thinner beam by dedc:

    https://www.amazon.com/DEDC-Headligh...6PMMNN9WS7RGYE

    or this one if you are a dual sport rider and want more close in light. better for off road lighting.

    https://www.amazon.com/Automotive-He...iglink20849-20

    or if you only have one headlight you might want to consider this one. But do not use the glass sleeves, bend the shield away from the emitter about 0.1 inches (heat). you will need the down tilt fix ( 12 ga wire across the bottom two slots ) to get a better focus. (search for 'cyclops 3800 led bulb fix')

    https://www.amazon.com/MOSTPLUS-000l...m%2B6000K%2Bh4

    or

    https://www.amazon.com/HIKARI-Headli...QGDBD1Y31XSHQ0

    nice to have choices!

    And there are others that work as well, Read below for the story or skip to the end for updates

    -------------------------------------------------------- update ----------------------------------

    I helped develop this bulb. It creates a nice flat cut off that prevents glare to on coming drivers and allows the driver/rider to see further down the road. This is the best H4 led bulb on the market. No glare. No scatter. Enjoy

    Thank you to all on this forum who helped with this project. The magic is in the Shield.

    Below is the original unshielded G3 bulb on the left verses the new Shielded G6 bulb on the right in my ST1300.

    The h4 is the only shielded bulb.

    The H7 does not need a shield since it should be in the reflector housing.

    EVtek makes H7's. Just email the vendor and ask if they can get them.

    Is this bulb a plug n play for the mount or to the two bottom tabs still have to be modded?
    Don't tell me what I know. Tell me what I don't know.

    That is $54 for a pair!

    You will have to trim the bottom two tabs. I keep asking for the Honda plates but have not gotten an answer yet.
    initial tests the power is 20 watts on low and high. I will add more info since I am testing right now.... It has a fan so heat should not be an issue.
    I added photos to the first post. The new LEDs better fills the low beam reflector.
    These are as close to plug and go as you can get. You should make sure that the shields are level. I have slightly bent up the shields a bit to make the beam perfectly flat.
    out of the box they should give you a 7.5 degree up tilt on both sides. (which is what a H4 halogen should give you).
