They look similar to the ones I bought.  I did not need the spacer with mine but I did have to trim the rubber to make the hole bigger.

Quite tired of my poor lighting so gonna do this thing.

I have been working through both ends of this thread.. I’ve sent mccmike a PM for spacers and have found H7s on amazon on page 42 ish of this thread.

Question: Any newer links for LEDs available guys?

I bought the same, they are really good.  The only problem I had was removing the grub screw on one of the heat sinks with the supplied allen key.  I think I used a better quality imperial sized allen key which was slightly larger to get it out.

Good point l forgot about that.
Having already seen that a number of people had problems with the grub screw l sorted through my collection of allen keys until l found one that was a good snug fit, no problem then.

Short video to aid LED installation. Bit more of a fiddle on the bike but it shows the general idea. https://vimeo.com/manage/312081392/general

Hi Maccmike,
   Are you still making the spacers for fitting led bulbs if so can you let me know how much you charge. Also which bulb kit would you recommend at this point in time. Thanks in advance.

Hi All, Just ordered the led,s from Amazon purely cos they sound Brilliant. I have got the spacers from macmike a few weeks ago. So i should have reasonably no trouble in fitting them, its just that there is limited space to work on them.  :oh_no:  :023: :023:
