    Default Lamonster LED kit

    Just installed the Lamonster LED headlights on my wifes 2015 F3-S. She rode to work early this morning and didn't like the hi-beam pattern. I took it for a run tonight and agree that the HI-beam pattern is not good. Looking at the pattern I don't think this is an adjustment issue. I imagine it may be the led with the reflectors. Anyone else have the LED headlights, if so what do you think?

    I have the Lamonster LED headlight on my F3 Limited. Yes, the high beam is somewhat of a searchlight, it reaches out far, but is a narrow pattern. I have had replacement LED bulbs in various motorcycles, and the high beam pattern is always very similar. To get a better pattern, the LED has to be incorporated with a reflector designed specifically for that LED. All in all, I think the Lamonster LED headlight set up is a lot better than the stock H4 bulbs, and it is the best alternative to the stock headlight until someone builds an entire replacement unit.

    As stated it is the reflector. While LED will provide a whiter and brighter type of light the pattern will suffer because the reflector isn't designed for the LED.

    I figured the stock reflectors were the issue. Maybe someone will make a reflector.

    That's what I am waiting for. Someone finally made one for my Tacoma pick up and I made the switch. The LED's work great with the proper reflector, they weren't so great when I tried them with the stock halogen reflectors in place.

    Considering all of the above, I've decided to hold off on the Lamonster LED kit for my F3 Ltd. I think the bike desperately needs LED headlights and it's a shame that BRP hasn't kept pace with the industry in this area.

    SBCT, I too have the Lamonster H4's and I agree the lighting down the road is not good. Looking for driving lights to fix the problem.

    I have Lamonster's LED headlights on my 2015 F3 base model. Knowing what I know now about putting LEDs in halogen housings, I would never do it again. LEDs need a specially designed projector, NOT A HALOGEN HOUSING.

    Don't know if this will help but the LED headlights are adjustable at the bulb there are set screws that will allow you to turn the bulb & make it hit the reflector better
