Yes , Derek told me to get that baby and glad I did. Much brighter and uses less power and lasts longer. Go figure ?I went on a short night ride with the H4 60 watt halogen in in the Commando. It works very well, in fact it was the best headlight setup I have ever had, better than the 2016 Triumph.
The 30 watt H4 type LED, as recommended by Derek Wilson, went in for the next short ride. It is at least as well focused as the 60 watt Halogen but much more powerful.
Finally a motorcycle LED that is not only bright, it also works extremely well at night!
Thanks. Have emailed to see if he can ship to the UK.Yes

I was unfaithful to mine today.... Had a look round a Triumph dealer's forecourt!!!Walked into mine's living quarters and gave it a suggestive pat on the tail light.... Has begun to drizzle so I feel bad about no ride after getting the old gal's hopes up.... Yup still talking Commando.
Nothing wrong with that I own 2 Nortons and 2 Triumph Thruxtons all 4 live together great, but sadly the 900 Thruxton has to go as well one car, being retired the regos are a killer, the 1200 Thruxton and the Norton are ridden the most and the 650 Manxman is still well its not going nowhere at the moment (project bike build).I was unfaithful to mine today.... Had a look round a Triumph dealer's forecourt!!!
Reed valve breather is a must have on an old Norton.50 miles shakedown after completing the service. Bike absolutely flew. I think it likes the cooler weather, rather than due to my spannering! But, the most significant improvement was the reed valve breather. The bike immediately sounded and felt happier.
Still have a couple of issues to work through, but it's a long winter...
