    Without continuing to rain on your parade Sooty. The Chinese copies are not legal either! Read into it what you will but with regards to any unfortunate incident the ramifications could be heavy? On a bike that may be worth many thousands is it really worth scrimping with regards to lighting/indicators?

At a glance the ones depicted do claim IP 67 but not sure why they say they are 75 watts? They should draw less current than a standard incandescent unit not more, whilst providing a higher lumen output. In the event of causing or being involved in an accident having illegal lights can have serious further reaching implications. Buy approved/E marked or stick with what you have.

    I found these LED running / spotlamps on ebay they seem ok for £26.99. They're designed for the Royal Enfield Bullet, so I assume they are made in India.
