To confirm, this fits in an 8" BD racelight?

Yes it's true. Complete lights are available through Cyclops. If you already have the light and just need a conversion kit, I have plenty in stock.


Here is a testimonial I received yesterday......

"I finally got the light on tonight and went for a rip up the road; Holy ^%#$^%$#^ shit is it nice! What a HUGE difference from stock. I used a silverstar ultra for now; don't know if they're really worth the money increase over a regular bulb, but I went for it anyway and I am pretty darn happy with the unit as a whole right now. I can't imagine I'll need any more for my riding."

My Boatman kit just survived the 800KM Paris to Dacre rally in Canada last weekend. Since our team of three rolled across the start line at 4:16 am, the light came in handy, no doubt. All during the morning stages, it proved to be very effective and was plenty durable to take the constant pounding of the power line trails and baby head climbs. It even took the abuse of me throwing it on the ground a few times

I just installed another Boatman light on my 400 EXC for the late night trail rides!

SO NICE to be able to run low beam, and high beam at the same time... to get incredible output for that night time ride!!




Sadly, I didn't take "in action" pictures on a ride this past Saturday. No moon... perfect desert weather... and a hundred miles all from 9pm to 2AM. So nice to have light to ride with.

BTW, the IPF requires a tad bit larger outer ring (obtained with light sanding), and the inner ring needs to be flipped over. Easy peezy!
This light will be going on Craigs List or Ebay soon...

Let me know if there's any interest here (via PM)... and I'll send you back the info.

Cyclops light?

From the website it looks like the complete light from Cyclops is based on the TT conversion which means no back cover. Is this correct?

Also, @Boatman, this may be a stupid question but will this conversion work regardless of which Baja Design 8" race light I have? Halogen or HID?

Thank you!

Correct, Cyclops only sells a complete Trail Tech conversion. And the TT setup does not have any rear housing. They were working on some sore of cover but I don't know how far it has progressed.


My conversion for the Baja Designs Racelight will work whether you have halogen or HID, the housings are the same.

I have these in stock and ready to ship.

Just a bump for Boatmans excellent product. I've used the Baja Designs with Boatman conversion for nearly a year now, but only got to use it at night recently.

I used this rather than the trailtech product because it seems that the plastic bucket would give me a more robust unit, and somewhere to run some of the wiring thru.

Mine has the left dip for NZ / UK etc driving. The Hella insert is cheap here, & I opted for the toughened light unit, so likely won't opt for the headlight protector.

I've boosted the light to a 90/140w unit with upgraded wiring & relays, & big alternator. Good light when you need it. The ability to adjust the light on the run is excellent. I run a 25w Halogen in the pilot slot (light in this picture).
