5min only not enough to say if show error on the dashboard please road for 200km minimum and let me know please thanks
Hi back again. I rode to work for around 30 min and no error displayed. The light is nice and bright, at least I think brighter than my old Xenon HID. So maybe this will help you  decide.

Hi Roberto. Finally i was able to take some pictures of the lights. The ambient temperature was around 10 degrees and still no warning light and i have been riding couple times and so far so good. If the pictures won't convince you, trust me you won't regret getting those LEDs. They are bright and good light pattern, especially to the sides. The only thing I don't really like at the moment is the high beam as it's focused to close to the bike and it gives very bright spot to close, i have to aim it higher. This forum have picture size limit so here is a link to my Google photos folder. https://photos.app.goo.gl/ewKRYbD1WdhEk8DaA

Notice some pictures are dark those were taken without night mode and remember picture is not the same as naked eye. Once again I'm really happy

No no no it's closed all the time as it would get condensation inside.

I went with a complete LED assembly from Matt Gecko ..not cheap by any means but the light output at night is amazing, and the added DRL feature makes you way more visible in the daytime also...

you can probably find the Chinese version for much less and its likely just as good....

Hi. I was wondering are those lights any good? In the pictures i don't really see big difference between low and high beam. And what about servicing those lights if anything goes wrong?
On AliExpress those are even more expensive

They are very bright and light up the road extremely well. They have a distinct cut off in the beam  which shows the quality of the projector. I do a lot of riding at night and the high beam really isn't needed that much but it does add a lot of light further up the road when turned on ..as far as servicing them, they are sealed, and as such unless you broke the seal to take them apart, you cannot fix them..the carry a 2 year warranty, but hopefully I dont need it . as a side note, I had one on my Triumph also and it was 4 years old when I sold it ,  I had no problems with it in that time
