Pathfinder LED High Performance Bulb 7443 Amber
ITEM CODE: AO7443A, SKU: AO7443A
|Of course EVERY manufacturing process has its suppliers (which vary), product batches (e.g. LEDs and circuitry, which vary). So I remain hopeful. When I purchased a FULL SET of these Pathfinder LED replacements (all lights except running/fog lights), one of things I hoped to get out of them was LONGEVITY. I replaced all of my incandescent bulbs (except fog lights) in early Summer 2019. So far so good, but to my surprise in Spring of 2021 I discovered that my left-front running light (not the blinker part, but the one that is on all the time) stopped operating. Granted my bike is in humidity and significant temperature variation every day, so these bulbs undergo probably harsher conditions than most. But this was the first hint that the longevity part might be in question. I am keeping my fingers crossed that this was a fluke due to a bad batch of LEDs or something in the manufacturing process, and I am retaining hope that the normal longevity of the bulbs will be AT LEAST as good as their incandescent counterparts. So I just purchased a replacement AND amber and red SPARES, so the set is fully operational again, AND I have spares just in case any more suffer the same consequences. If they do, I will check back here and update my review. If they all continue to work for a very long time, I may or may not report here. Either way, no news will be good news in that case. :-)|
