Their site shows 1400/1800 low/high lumens for the H4M kit. The regular H4 kit shows 2000/2600 low/high lumens. Where are you seeing a higher powered light for H4?

Possibly confusing two products. I'll have a look around. There's a few others I have bookmarked.

There is quite a few H 4 LED bulb options available which makes it confusing.

I can't agree enough, plus there's many products with all different lumen outputs, some say 3000lm total lumen output, some say low and high lumen output. You have to be careful. Lifetime was the best I came across cause they are the brightest I've seen, there's one more which I found too which are flat LEDs on each side of the bulb for low and high, but they do not have the reflector on the bulb itself to spread the light more. I've looked on EBAY there are so many with CREE and COBB LEDs. It's so hard to tell, that's why I just stick with the lifetime LEDs

Also noticed the car kit is dual bulb. Makes me wonder if "2000 lumen" is for two bulbs, not each...

H4M motorcycle headlight

I take it this is what you're thinking of installing? And the fins on the back, I assume for heat disapation is what you're concerned with? Or am I looking at the wrong bulb? I'm not sure that 1800LM on high beam is that much more then what we have.

Just got a confirmation that it's for each bulb. 2000 for low beam led and 2400 for high beam led for total of 4400 lumens.

Chase, that's the one thing I'm concerned with is the size of the heat sink, not a deal breaker, can find a way around that. Also keep in mind that the stock bulb is just 1000 to 1600 range in lumens. It doesn't get brighter.

So these LED bulbs are capable of high and low beams?
