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

    The manual calls for a H7. Why dose all here seem to use the H4?

    Not that I can see. The 'base plate' has a custom plastic insert that the LED bulb locks into - similar to an old 1157 socket configuration.

    You have to bend them or the LED bulb sits wrong.

    A big NOo on that one, sir. But you could pull out that ballast and go back to the OEM connector feeding the H4 direct.

    Well ain't you special? Actually, good for you. Before I reinstalled the boots, I saw my ST1300 bails fouled against the fan housing. Then when you add the thickness of the boot between the bail and fan housing, the amount of foul increases. Hence, I needed to "reconfigure" my bails.
    Everything works out in the end. If it's not working, you're not at the end.

    That's what I was thinking. I've seen LED brake light flashers that say 'Not for incandescents'. As for switching back to the original connector that would be a little inconvenient to do on the road.

    I don't think Amazon offers just the spare bulb and don't recall anybody mentioning ordering one from Cindy.
    Don't tell me what I know. Tell me what I don't know.

    Oh.. I assumed the ballast plugged into the original H4 connector. No?

    D'oh! You're right! I haven't got mine yet but yes. The ballast is 'in series' with the bulb and power so pop the ballast connector off the factory connector and put it on the halogen bulb.

    But that does mean open the bail which is a little tricky for my hands. But at least there are options— spare G6 (means buying a set) or reverting to a halogen bulb (lifting that bail).
