Lightbulb Absolutely amazing!

I found this thread while researching rear turn signal relocation yesterday, and holy cow am I glad I did. I bought the headlight from amazon. It came same day with Prime, and I installed it last night before going out.

This bulb is bright and works right out of the box. 100% drop in. I am so grateful for this post! I can hardly believe I was driving around with such a dim bulb before. This is on a 2007 Rebel 250.

Thank you very much!

this is one of the "pick 4" type with multiple products in the same offering page, and you have to be careful reading the reviews since they are all mixed together, filter for the H4 only.

Welcome to the forum.

If you thought the headlight in your 2007 was bad, you should see how little light the first generation Rebels sealed beam put out! Did you find what you needed about turn signal relocation?

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Thanks for the welcome. I don't want to even think about a dimmer headlight! That would be some white knuckle riding.

I found the bracket design plans, but I live in an apartment and don't have very many tools. I think I'm going to have to buy a prefabricated bracket to move the lights before I get some bags.

I don't know of any commercially available brackets that will fit a Rebel. Sending a PM.

I'm looking around for an all-in-one-tail-brake-turn-license assembly that will work on the rebel
something like this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073TYWXQ7
but fits better....

I have also been looking for that particular Holy Grail for a while.

That Amazon light is probably not bright enough to be an effective brake light - or turn signal. HD makes a nice combo brake/turn light but you're probably looking at a $2000 item.

@flitecontrol ... fyi I fixed the headlight rattle with about 2-3 wraps of black electrical tape around the cowling edge, then just pressed in the lens ring. Rattle gone, nice black accenting IMHO.

While we are rating LED bulbs, I bought this one on ebay and the socket separated from the rest of the light. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1157-BA15D-...kAAOSwRoxXmsJM

Did you find a drop in replacement LED tail light bulb that was good quality?

As an update it's been 7 weeks and the bulb I got off of Amazon is still burning bright.
