Motodemic LED headlight conversion kit M1200
Since nobody has written anything about it, here's my two cents:
Why I bought it?:
I like the round headlamp look and the modern design of the led headlamps, the adaptive lamp is awesome but kinda pricey. So I opted for the standard LED lamp which is also a good design and quality from JW Speaker (more on that later).
The round bucket can acomodate other LED headlamps as long as they comply with the PAR56 standard, so future changes or upgrades are a possibility.
I like the cafe fighter look that my bike is getting, I'm also putting a drag bar on it so it fits nicely. Also thinking on putting back the DP widshield since it seems to go better with the round lamp.
Yes, it's kind pricey, mostly related to the adaptive headlight. I really like the technology on it but I chose to save the dough and use it to get the drag bar, pegs and grips to complete the look. Overall, I beleive it's worth it.
Fit and finish
It's really good, all the parts are really well made and fit perfecty on the bike, it's totally a plug and play install. The lamp is also already wired to fit the OEM harness so no wire splicing or other shady stuff.
The Ducati Performance LED turn signals fit in the bucket bracket with no issues. I'm glad I can keep those, although looks wise, smaller leds would be nicer. Maybe later...
As I said before it's plug & play, Motodemic does not provide printed instructions, but the tutorials they have on their website or YouTube are spot on. No special tools are required and they provide a couple of allen keys to work with. The lamp just clicks in with the OEM harness and that's it. The only thing you'll loose is the parking lights option but I never used it anyway so it's fine.
Comparison with OEM lamp
As I said before, the OEM lamp was not totally of my liking, and for sure the LED light output is way better than the stock lamp. I haven't run it at night yet but I'll try it soon.
Size wise is a bit smaller but because of the bucket and mounting design, it protrudes more to the front of the bike, so the look is not as streamlined as the OEM but it works for me (pics below)
The kit is really good, the finish of the bracketry is great and everything fits like it should. The only issue I found so far was with the lamp itself. One of the small side leds that should turn on with the high beam is not working, since this is a JW Speaker lamp I hope they can tell me what the problem is.
I already contacted them and I'm waiting for a workaround or solution to it, so no points taken off, yet.
This is a great option if you like the look (which can be a bit polarizing) and an improvement over the OEM lamp. Very well made and has potential for further customization in the future.
