If you are installing a smoked tail light cover & want to stick with incandescent bulbs, this Iridium Coated Red Incandescent Bulb is a must have! Red bulbs stick out like a sore thumb when used under the smoked lens, but this one blends right in. I only wish they made a single filament version for the rear blinkers.
This was the bulb that came with my lay down brake lens and adapter. Double check the bulb with the adapter when you get it to make sure it fits and is secure as mine was not. Also try to keep your hands off the bulb as much as possible as the oils and such from your skin will breakdown the coating of the bulb and after a month or so of usage you will see the coating come off and red shine through.
Terrible product, cost way to much for inferior quality light. The silver coating started to flake off after the very first ride of the bike after I installed the bulbs. Overall rating is very poor, the reason for the excellent for style is the bulb if the coating did not flake off would look very good with smoke or clear lens. Don't waste your money on this bulb.
these bulbs peel or flake off their iridium coating. I bought a pair. Put them on the bike and after 25 min. They started flaking. Sent them back for replacement. Put the new ones on and the same thing. I'm asking for my money back. These things look cool but are junk.
