I also have the Piaa Night Tec bulbs in my 14a which have been in for a little over 5yrs now. I installed them for the same reason as some as I was still working and the early/late rides to & from work in the dark was over 43mi of critter infested 2 lane country roads. The oe factory h4’s weren’t terribly bad but had a lot of shadows in their beam pattern. The Night Tex’s don’t have any shadows and are a bit brighter with a great side illumination, great bulbs imho.
With that said the next time I have to replace bulbs in the fjr I will install the highly recommended F2 Leds,they should last longer and hopefully have a similarly great light pattern as my current Piaa’s do. The fjr has the room to use the F2’s where most if my older bikes cannot fit a LED bulb with the cooling fans and heat sinks that go with them. On those bikes I’ll use the Piaa’s.
One thing to keep in mind if you install the LED’s is that you will have a whirring/whine in the front of your bike, it is the coolingfans on the LED’s , drove me crazy trying to figure out what “that” noise was when I put an led in my 81 cbx which is fully enclosed in the fairing, just the cooling fan.
Red 2014A, the fastest color !
