Step 8: Beam Shots
Finally had some time to take beam shots. I did not have a tripod handy so the crispness is a little lacking but the results come across. For comparison I also took some pics of the headlight beam from a stock CB550 with incandescent bulb on HIGH beams. The photos show that the LED has a much broader beam and a lot more light in general. The throw is pretty similar between the two with the incandescent is much more focused and directed. From a rider point of view, the LED is a big improvement over the anemic stock light. Comparison photos are taken with the same camera settings.
