We've taken the best of our H4 Rev2 and our Mesh Monster, added some upgrades and came up with our H4 Rev3. The Best LED Headlight on the market!
+Awesome beam pattern - Low beam provides a distinct cutoff with the high beam stacked on top of the low beam.
Low Beam - 3500 lumens @ 1.5 amps / 20 watts from the single upward oriented Cree LED (same orientation as our H4 Rev2)
High Beam - 4800 lumens @ 2.2 amps / 30 watts from a second downward facing Cree LED. The downward facing high beam led fills the headlight reflector and puts the high beam directly on top of the low beam, making for the best LED headlight pattern we've seen.
+ Both LEDs are on with high beam.
+ Maleable Mesh heatsink makes use of available space.
+ Grommet provided for installations that have a cover or cap behind the headlight. The mesh will protrude from the cover, how much depends on the cap height or distance from the back of headlight.
+5700k color temperature
+30,000 hour expected life.

I have used the Native H4 before with good result but on this motorcycle I have room in the headlight shell for the heatsink and pigtail. I thought that I would give this one a try. To be honest I was not really looking for more illumination as much as I wanted less watts so that I can use my heated gear with less worry about battery drain. This does lower the power consumption enough to give me more confidence to turn the heat up. What used to draw the voltmeter down to 13.6 volts or less now stays up there around 13.9 volts. Doesn't sound like a lot but it does make a big difference.
So, illumination. This is not a true H4 so I lost that really good H4 profile but I certainly do have more lumens. The low beam doesn't have that distinct H4 cutoff but does fade reasonably to the top. This lamp does not turn the low beam off but just adds the high beam on top of the low beam. The result is some really good illumination without blinding oncoming traffic.The lighting to each side is much better than the stock light.
Please use the technology responsibly! Please adjust your beams reasonably low and don't use high beam on oncoming traffic. Blinding oncoming drivers does not make you safer, it puts you in jeopardy at worst and is just rude at best. Sure is good to be able to see the critters before they run out in the road!

Works great in DRZ400

I wish I had done this sooner. I upgraded both my headlights on my 2009 DL650A to ADVMonster's H4 R3s. The install was simple and straight forward. The heat sinks are easily moveable to clear the forks when turning. Beam pattern is good and they are VERY bright. The lights need to be adjusted down a lot to avoid lighting up the whole neighborhood. High beam intensity is insane and maybe too much unless you are in the middle of nowhere. The intensity is partly due to the Lumens but also the position of the emitters in relation to the light buckets which were originally designed for standard H4 bulbs. So your results may very from a Gen 1 to Gen 2 VStrom, or any other bike for that matter. Excellent bang for the buck though. I feel more visible and can see better as well. A++
Now to see what's available for my wife's 2nd gen F650GS.

I purchased these lights to replace a set of LEDs that used a cooling fan - I was not a fan of the noise and the beam pattern was just ok. I just installed the ADV Monster lights over the weekend - great build quality, easy to install and mount the ballast, great beam pattern... and no fan. I can't attest to longevity but hope this will be the last set of bulbs I install on my 2013 V'Strom 650.

cannot comment on longetivity but construction and light output are great. shipping was fast as well

ADVMonster describes the unit with perfect accuracy. Unlike most led replacements for headlights, the high setting actually produces more light in addition to distributing that light over a larger volume, like a halogen headlight, but with more defined cutoffs. It not only improves my ability to see ahead and to the sides, it noticeably affects my visibility to other drivers, especially during daylight. My only complaint, and this applies to all leds in current use for automotive applications, is that color rendering can't compare to incandescent bulbs, including halogen. ADVMonster uses leds with a CRI (color rendering index) of 80+, higher than some others and as high as any in automotive use at present. You probably can't do better until somebody in the transportation industry discovers the value of color rendition to vehicle operators. The bulb produces a high color temperature of 5700k, so it's not as helpful to middle-aged and older eyes for illumination, but it stands out getting the attention of other drivers. One other item of note: my headlight has ridges in the glass to distribute light in a useful pattern. Because the light from the leds doesn't radiate evenly in all directions like the halogen they replaced, the pattern on the road in front of me has definite areas of light and dark, rather than the more even distribution from the halogen. That kind of thing will happen with any headlight enclosure not specifically designed for this bulb. Both the reflector and lens are matched to their presumed light source. Some people might find the light pattern from their enclosures unacceptable.
Installation is as easy or difficult, depending on your motorcycle, as with an ordinary halogen bulb, with this caveat: to achieve this bulb's superior optics and power the led driver has to be external to the bulb socket and the leds require a large, passive heat sink. I was able to fit the assembly in my 2009 Yamaha XT250, but a more enclosed design might not have the room. It's worth the effort if you can do it, though. It illuminates very well, with almost no chance of burn out, for half the power, or less, of halogen or HID. In fact, I installed this in order to be able to add auxiliary lights and a more powerful horn, as the XT250's alternator doesn't have any extra capacity above what's needed for the motorcycle as it comes stock.
In sum, while a bulb with CRI and R9 (two color rendition measures) both above 95 and a somewhat warmer color temperature would represent significant improvements to this design, it's an outstanding bulb that I recommend to anyone looking for a brighter, more useful headlight with much lower power draw, and at an unbeatable price.

The light itself is great, two weeks of use so far and no issue. The low beam spread is very nice compared to stock, fills in the gaps nicely.
Install was a pain, but not difficult. Pay attention to the orientation of the LEDs or your high/low will be reversed.

I have had ADV Monster LEDs on my bikes since 2009 and for me there is nothing better you can get for the price.
I started out with the H4 LED which was very good then progressed to the H4 Native which was better and now I have H4 R3 LED which is simply fantastic especially at the reduced price...there is no other brand I would even think about using

Installed tonight on an XSR900. The light is very bright and seems like it doesn't need any adjustment. It is a VERY tight fit in the XSR900 bucket, but it will fit with the driver module peeking out of the back of the bucket. Wires are very tight, time will tell if it holds up.

Night and day difference over mediocre OEM light! Highly recommend to anyone who wants to improve their night time riding experience!
