So the low beam one survived for 4 mornings then broke in half.  I only used the high beam one for about 1 minute and it still melted it like it was hit with a laser beam lol.  Lesson learned  :430:

Low beam




High beam

So unfortunately the same thing happend to me, how do I go about getting the led out of the low beam housing?

I am having the same issue of burning out even with LED high and low beam bulbs. Infact the bulbs themselves burn out after a while.

As for fishing out the broken or fallen bulb, use a flexible magnetic catch or a vacuum with a small flex tube attachment.

This is just a stupid design where the parking lights stay on with the headlights. They should turn OFF once the main bulbs are ON

I bought some Philips running light LEDs and haven't had any problems so far. They were $25-30 If I recall correctly, what bulbs are you all buying that are burning out/exploding and how much were they?

I think the problem is the size of the enclosure on bikes is much smaller and therefore puts the LED closer to the Low/High bulb and get burned from that.
