I love the lights! I can actually see at night now. Only issue is the are shadows or dark spots in the light. Do you think it is the bulbs or the lenses? Te bulbs do not have LEDs all around. Only on two sides. I did adjust the bulbs, rotated them, to get the best beam.

Thanks
Tom

This is a typical issue with using LED bulbs in a headlight designed for a filament bulb.

Thanks
Would a bulb with chips on three or four sides fill in the shadows?
