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.

Well done, and thanks for taking the time out to make the guide. Cheers!

Cool. Very nice. WAY over my head though!
