  • Unfortunately the Chinese Adaptive light isn't actually an adaptive light, but I review it anyways.
    ***Update***
    I have had a few requests for a link to the Chinese clone. Here you go...

    Most useless video ever! Thirteen fucking minutes of nothing and then this dipshit says Oh if you wish to see a comparison of these lights I have another video for that. Yeah asshole that’s what everyone expected here.

      I have a separate video that reviews all three lights. You can see a real world example of what it looks like on the road.

    Still for a headlight its hell overpriced. and try to hit your JW with a rock see what happened and share with us. :P

  • Егор Хайруллин

    Chinese adaptive headlight cost 150-170$ so you just bought a cheap non adaptive version

    • Tech4hire
      Tech4hire  10 months ago

      You could say that, or that I bought a Cheap Chinese Headlight sold as Adaptive that was not adaptive.

    ... so you do a light review without showing the light?

    • Tech4hire

      At the 11:50 mark I post a link to my other video that shows the lights performance.

    Light vs light video without showing any light? Besides that thanks for giving me some info as I am looking to replace my stock Yamaha Raider S headlight with a LED one. And I have looked at both of these lights on Amazon and an EagleLite version. Thanks for the info.

    Informative boxes are overrated. If you are putting a product in a store for people to see on a shelf then yes you need all the important info on the box, but if you are selling online all the info should be online and a plain brown cardboard box is all you need. All the important info should be with in the manual and the model, volts, watts, lumens, and amps, should be on the product.

    The only thing, you are not talking about is: The Light! And that is all that counts! Make a light test!!! And then judge!

    Thanks... It was nice to see the Chinese copy alongside JW Speaker. But was that all? We were eagerly looking forward to the comparison... but the red progress line came to an end abruptly. So sad.

    Hey mate you didn't connect them and compared the light output...and didn't show us that it's not adaptive so sorry but people say things for money - look at advertising business..which this youtube video reminded me off...

    The biggest difference is 55$ vs 623$ .

    • ekim andersom
      ekim andersom Year ago

      Anyway that thing would probably be illegal in Europe.

    • Tech4hire
      Tech4hire  Year ago

      Yeah there is not many options if you try to stay stock looking.

    • ekim andersom
      ekim andersom Year ago

      Well yeah, i would love it for a Ducati Scrambler or a Thruxton maybe.
      But i have a Royal Enfield, just doesn't fit with the look.
      Obviously i watched the video cause it has my interest, but i would love to have a better light while retaining the classic look.
      So far it seems my only option is a stronger bulb.

    • Tech4hire
      Tech4hire  Year ago

      To each their own. Right? I personally love the look of this light. I certainly stands out on the road and gets you seen.

    • ekim andersom
      ekim andersom Year ago

      Its an awesome light, but for me personally the price is way too high just for a headlight.
      Anyway i would never ruin the classic look with such a modern light for any price.

    Did the adaptive LeD clone have more than a single plug? Looks like eBay ones have extra wires to connect as blinkers that flash orange? Do you have link where you bought it?

    • Tech4hire
      Tech4hire  Year ago +1

      Pay for shipping and its yours

    • Craig Becker

      Do you still have it? Let me paypal you 40 bux for it :)

    • Tech4hire
      Tech4hire  Year ago

      Craig Becker I want to say they light up on hi-beam. Not sure

    • Craig Becker
      Craig Becker Year ago

      Do all the LED's light up on the clone you tested? Or are the ones that are supposed to turn on and "be adaptive" just not turn on at all?

    • Craig Becker
      Craig Becker Year ago +1

      Tech4hire trying to order the one that does not blink orange. Thanks and nice vid

    Problem with JW Speaker is they might be marginally better than the Chinese knock-offs, yet they are 3-5 times the price. So, JW is maybe 10% better (debatable as your review did not convince me) yet cost 2-400% more. Many will simply not pay the high price and either stay stock or get the knock off. Made in USA only goes so far. Such companies will loose market share over time trying to keep their margins sky high only to fail in the end and then blame the imports.

      I have the real one ... lol then saw this www.aliexpress.com/item/7in-LED-Adaptive-Headlights-with-7-inch-Headlight-Mounting-Ring-4-5-inch-Harley-Fog-Lamp/32826589847.html but I have not bought one was going to just to see the difference.

      The extra cost goes to the pretty box it comes in.

    Really, How much they paying you, All I heard was BS. I have been running mine for a year at 1/3 the price.

    • Tech4hire
      Tech4hire  Year ago

      John Solomon Apparently you are having a hard time keeping up. Read your 3rd to last response that solicited my 12 year old response. If you can't get it there is nothing more I can do.

    • John Solomon
      John Solomon Year ago

      No it doesn't who was the smartass that said 12 ,Read, what you say, you are the childish one, OK, Buttercup

    • Tech4hire
      Tech4hire  Year ago

      John Solomon Listen bub, my Father, mother and brother served in the USMC. I was born on Camp Pendleton. So you can knock that shit off right now. Just because you are a vet doesn't mean you are correct. My brother is filled with all sorts of wrong information.
      Your response was childish. You claim non existent facts and claimed if I responded I would be affirming you were correct. That's not how you have a discussion. That is how a child argues. If you don't like that analogy, maybe up your game. Provide some facts.

    • John Solomon
      John Solomon Year ago

      No, I am 72, disabled USMC 1968 to 1971 Vietnam Veteran and an ex POW . You don't like veterans figures , I hope people read this.

    • Tech4hire
      Tech4hire  Year ago

      tankdiesel987 It looks exactly like the Chinese version. Have a feeling that's what this is.

    Great explanation and you definitely got to the main points on the differences.

    • MrLunithy

      The light is great every bit as good as JW say.

    • Sven Hansen

      No, no, no. The main point is the light. And he said nothing about it. Even not test it! Whole bullshit!

    hi brotha, i wanted to ask if the bobber has a bottom or a top mounted head light and will a arlen ness narrow glide universal fairing fit the bike ?? please try answering as and when you find convenient . thanks bud .

    • Tech4hire
      Tech4hire  Year ago

      mehtab cheema Its a bottom mount. There is a kit to mount the light directly to the shock tubes do that you can mount pretty much whatever light you want. I havent seen the light you are talking about so I cant be certain.
