Default JW Speaker headlights

Has anyone seen these things? https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/...5-34-headlight

They have adaptive low beams based on lean angle. The reviews and videos all show a nice even output and a sharp cutoff. Only drawback is they cost a million dollars.

I've always wanted to improve my Street Triple headlights (bought a spare set to do an HID retrofit but they don't make projectors shallow enough to fit the bowls).

That's about it. Just thought these were pretty cool. Motorcycle content!

Pretty freakin cool.

Regarding upgrading your Streety lights, the ADVmonster LED headlights have been getting pretty good reviews as a plug-n-play replacement for halogens. I've got no experience with them yet though, maybe search "advmonster" on the triumph boards to see if anyone has tried them.

Edit forgot the link

You guys and your helpfulness, providing alternatives that aren't spending 1/3rd of the bike's value on lights lol.

I was just surprised by these. In the past I had written off any of the sealed headlights with built in projectors as Chinese knockoff eBay specials. These are made in USA and seem to be the real deal. Where's that thread about the aftermarket going down the tubes? How long do I need to wait for these to be in the clearance bins?

That's a really cool idea.

Do they point down when you wheelie?

Holy shit that's expensive!

At first glance I thought that might be the solution to the pitiful headlight on the Monster.

No thanks, I'll just continue to be blind.

I thought your garage had some pretty decent CFLs?

Near as I can tell, all of these -- even the "direct replacement" unit -- would/might require cutting/drilling your existing housing/reflector. Read some of the comments and the installation sheet.

Love the idea, but I really don't want to go chopping stuff up unless I'm sure I'm not going to be reselling the bike or car I put it in.

If it were a true drop-in replacement for my existing bulbs, then hellz yeah. Good pricing.
