Pretty close, but not perfect. I have been a reluctant adopter of LED lighting for retrofit applications. Only a small percentage of what's on the market today can really be considered an improvement over stock. The H4 bulb is especially one of these cases. In the FJR, the dual H4's sit in the center of their lens housings, and have two filaments for high and low. The low beam filament is forward, and has a small metal shield forcing the light into the upper half of the lens, and the resulting light throw is a typical low beam pattern. The high beam however is rearward, but without the shield; thus adjusting the throw further down the road AND using both the upper and lower halves of the lenses. In stock form the FJR really does have a great lighting setup, and I had no complaints or motivation to move over to LED. So what's up with the H4 Native? First the good. They're bright. The hi/low configuration is accurately located in the lens, so there is a distinct change in focus and throw from low beam to high beam, and the light throw patterns are accurate for the application. The down fall however, for the FJR at least. Since the heat sink for the H4 Native is the bottom half of the assembly, switching to high beam only focuses with the top half of the lens, and I lose all of the pattern the bottom half of the lens housings provide. Half of the high beam spread is eliminated in this application. So, why will I keep these? I don't like the braided cable heat sink, or the other add on modules associated with many of the other lights on the market. I really appreciate the drop in install on the natives, and no modification to the rubber boots or housing. Secondly, I just added a set of fork mounted LED floods (competitors product) which are adjustable on low beam, and integrated to full power on high beams. A very nice product, and 2000+ lumens each. In theory now, on high beam I'm projecting 11,200 lumens. With the fork mounted floods and hi/lo beam integration, it makes up for losing the bottom half of the FJR lenses on high beam from the H4 Natives. All while consuming the same power as two stock H4's on high beam. Lastly, the color on the H4 Native and the fork mount LED's match, which was my driving force to test the H4 Natives. All in all I'm pleased the product, and would otherwise give them 5 Stars if I didn't lose the lower half of my lenses.

Perfect fit, less than half the wattage of a halogen bulb. Put one in the wife’s “Frankenbike” (old BMW /2 with ‘83 running gear). I liked it so much that I bought two more for my R80GS and R80/7 sidecar rig.

Fit perfectly with no modification. Very bright on low and high beam. Definitely an improvement for an old bike.

Not bad at all I’m pleased

The design makes it an easy-fitting replacement in the 7.5 inch Bosch (sans the useless shield). It provides a wider, brighter dispersion and has a white-blue color compared to the standard H4. It draws less power - which is a good thing for the charging system on an older boxer.

Very white light. Easy installation, just had to remove inner shield for clearance. Uses 25 watts on low and 50 watts on high. The low beam appears to just light the top of the lens but there is a ton of light. Fits perfectly in the headlight shell of an '83 BMW R80RT.

This is just what I was looking for my 72 R60/5 toaster. I use the standard electrical system and wanted to have a bright light without the power consumption of the H4 bulb I was using. Plug-n-Play. The light beam has good cut off on hi and low so it's not offensive to oncoming traffic.

As a former ADVMonster customer I had a need for better lighting in my 37 Pontiac hotrod. The existing 7" lights were plastic woth poor pattern. I upgraded the lights to better glass units that had a better pattern, but the halogen bulbs were lacking.
My concern was that the '37's lights are totally enclosed and I feared having the LED's overheat. John assured me that the Native H4 he has on display has been running inside a sealed mason jar for a long time without any problem.
Installation was easy and the difference is literally day and night! Cutoff line is crisp and clean!
Great product and great company to deal with.

I measured current draw at about 2.5 Amps at 12.5 volts. This means the unit is drawing a bit over 30W. The claim is 25W, that's close enough. Many LEDs offered for sale claim a much higher power than they actually draw.

I've written a review an would like to add that this all in one unit with the fan on the front did take a bit of widening the hole into the reflector housing as the bulb has the head sink built into the sides to help cooling thus making it a wider bulb.
One thing for sure it is MUCH brighter an much more noticeable than the standard halogen H4 making it a lot safer in my book.
