Has anyone tried this 6v P43T LED bulb from Ulis?

See this thread...I bought

See this thread...I bought the head and tail light, simple plug and play and they work great. Both much brighter with tiny current draw compared to the originals.

Ulis 6v P43T LED bulb

Thanks for the links. I read through these posts and they mainly cover the Classic Dynamo Regulator Conversions bulbs. I’m using an aftermarket H4 reflector and lens right now with a 6v 35/35w halogen bulb. There is only about 1mm of clearance between the speedometer and the bulb socket so none of the CDRC 6v LED bulbs will fit. Peter Jury suggested their ultimate H4 LED in 12v and use a 6 to 12 volt converter. The problem with this setup is if either the bulb or converter fails on a trip, it would be difficult to just stick in a spare bulb.

The 6v LED bulb from Ulis looks the same size as an H4 halogen so it might be a good alternative.
