    Do a side by side comparison with a standard halogen bulb at night. I'm pretty sure you'll find that the LEDs light up the road very well just in front of and to the side of the bike but they don't project nearly as well down the road. The LEDs in the TTSE housing also scatter a lot of light where it shouldn't be. Check out my side by side comparison on this forum and be sure to let us know how your comparison tests go.

    Quite a few of the newer LED bulbs have a small half-moon metal deflector on one of the LED elements, to help alleviate light scatter.     I just switched-out my original LED headlight bulbs (very similar to the ones you used) to these:

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LQ6T3ZE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    They have a very nice throw, and don't scatter like the last pair I had.     I'm anxious to see which bulbs the OP purchased---I'd be willing to bet they're very similar.     I don't believe the high beam throws as strongly as the OEM halogens, but they're bright enough for my purposes (mostly daytime rider--needing more conspicuity from headlights than long-distance night-breaking light.)

    I'm very happy with these, and now have them in both my Trophy and Explorer.

    I just swapped out my original LED headlights for these Philips LED Chips 160W 16000LM H4 9003 HB2 Headlight Kit H/L Beam Bulbs AY8 I found on eBay.

    These things are MAJOR bright... noticeable brighter than my previous Cree LED lights.

    There is no scatter and the throw is excellent.

    Much easier to fit as the aluminium cooling fins completely unscrew and they can be fitted like normal bulbs, I was even able to reinstall the rubber boots which I could not get on last time. Also these are fanless, so I no longer have to worry about fan failure causing overheating!

    The disk with the 3 lugs that the spring clip locks against can also be rotated and locked in place if you feel the need to adjust the beam angle. I have just locked it in the central position and seems OK but if I do get any issu s with dazzle for other motorists I know it can be adjusted.
