Tried a cheaper set of lights and you get what you pay for! The K&S LEDs are buy far the best choice. The wires are a bit heavier, the LEDs and the end of the hollow mounting stud are sealed, the mounting hardware includes locking nuts and washers plus the hollow bolts actually feel like they have some steel in them. The extra 2 or 3 bucks is nothing compared to what you get for the difference. Have to say I was impressed with D/K about returning the cheaper, broken LEDs. All I paid was a couple of bucks sending them back via USPS and the difference in the cost of the replacement item. Now that's what will keep riders coming back and buying from them!!
