jalthar,

You should ask the person you setup the group buy with what is different between the ones they are selling for $145 and these :

... Other than these are only $142 with free shipping for a pair.  Maybe you can get them to lower their price a little more.


These are coming from India... and I thought this was a bit cute... something to watch out for.

Hello
please note on group buy i got light at @145USD plus $6USD extra paid for domestic shipping.
as all lights delivered at one place to save international shipping cost. After that lights ship to each group memeber.
all lights are sell by same seller.
$142USD Auction starting price so final price may be depends on bidings.
as all lights shipping from outside USA and changes of Custom Taxes.
But Touch wood there was no custom tax on our delivery.

Rest on your luck guys if you are able to get low price

I think I found an on-line source for a "pot" to be able to turn down the brightness.  As I sort it all out, I'll post additional info if anyone wants it.
Ooh, are you sure thats gonna work? the LED's are not resistive like filament based bulbs. I think the transformer between you and the LEDs is gonna have a problem with anything outside 10% and anything inside 10% won't affect the brightness at all, just my guess of course.

They work just as I planned.  I've written a tech article on how I did it, with pics and a wiring diagram.  I have the LEDs wired to a switched power supply (off when ignition is off).  ON, through the dimmer when the bike is on, and full bright when I turn the bike high beam on.  I have them dimmed to a low level for Daytime Running Lights and so that I can run them without on-coming traffic blasting me with their highbeams.

Since you asked so nicely, sure! :)  I've submitted this for a Tech Article on the COG site and it has been accepted.  I hope this helps explain ONE wiring option that provides a great deal of options.

The original source for many LED kits (like Denali):

http://www.visionxusa.com/LED/c1/index.html

My current rig is a WalMart special that is absolutely great in both see and be-seen mode, although the price ($16.99 pair) suggests it should be junk.  Uses $6 MR16 bulbs that can be gotten in patterns from spot to wide, and several color temps.  They surface rust in a couple of years at which point you just spend another $16.99.  Will post some pics ASAP.

Thanks for the heads up.  I've been waiting for the new XML T6 to make it into a triple or quad LED driving light package.  They have been all over eBay as flashlights for a couple of months now, so I knew it was just a matter of time.
