[QUOTE=viprez586;3501927]Dude, he just updated this 12 days ago. They're at a stand still until they can figure out howto cool the headlights better. Just be patient.
Tripage. Have you guys thought about using small cooling fans on the underside or back. Tricky part would be keeping light and excessive moisture out.[/QUOTE
Considered cooling fans but then we have to figure out how to get the heat out of the sealed headlights.
Have thought of large heat sinks but the limited size of the headlights limits us on how big they can be so the heat is still stuck in the headlight. The other option would be to make a new headlight. Possibly get with aftermarket source and modify the headlight slightly to be used for our Led's. This may be a possibility, but I would like to stick to this being a swap for internals in a stock headlight. Led's are updating very fast. As soon as they can run cooler/more efficient we will be all set. An alternative may be to run only low beam for those that want it but I would like to offer low/high so you have that extra light if need be. Maybe I will put a set in an aftermarket headlight just to give you an idea of the look. T
I know some are frustrated with how long this is taking but you have to look at what we are working with. Small business budget, other orders, new ideas. If we had Ducati's budget and make a headlight specific for the bike we would have already done this but we don't have those deep pockets. The IT was a huge risk on the business and it worked out. Now is not the time to risk a business on one idea, sorry. I am very conservative with my business and will not risk it on one idea at this time.
If you want us to feel better about making quick decisions get this tool out of office so business's can run the way they are supposed to. You can believe anything you hear but listen to me. Business's are holding back and waiting to see what is going to happen in NOV. If he is not gone you are going to see a lot more changes in the business world. T
