They are the LP530 PIAAs, offical Yamaha accessory part # DBY-ACC56-24-06. Wanted them not so much for more light as to fill in that ugly void under the headlights.

winter ride to the SW Idaho Desert

Went for a ride out to the Owyhee Desert a couple days ago... My Buddy Trents KLR is getting valve shims changed out, so he road my KLR...

We took a jeep trail that had about 6 inches of sand for a road base... I found out Pluric isn't the ONLY one who has trouble staying upright in the sand!!I was down before I'd gone 100 feet!... I found out the super 10 is pretty easy to pick up... sorry, no pics of the sleeping bike... but I did get some of the sand ruts where the tragedy occurred...

After a couple hundred yards of riding in this stuff, I figured out how to survive in it and didn't go down again... but it is work to ride this bike in sand!..
With two perfectly good bikes to ride... Trent decided to go for a hike??...


it was nice to get out there even though it's still pretty cold!! I sure like this bike!! even though she is a big gal!!

I'll be r
iding the big gal down to Death Valley in a Month... looking forward to letting her stretch her legs for a couple thousand miles
If anyone from the NW wants to ride down, Let me know!...

So, are they any good? I'm in the market.

^^ They are very good. Much cheaper if you buy the lights on Amazon and the brackets from a Yamaha dealer.

I like 'em bunches. With the PIAAs on and the headlights on high, it causes many cagers to flash their high beams at me in protest.

Thanks - I'm going to add them this week. I especially like what I read about the reflector facing tech concept.

The great thing about the RFT tech is that unlike most leds, these can be aimed properly so they will not blind oncoming traffic (unless you have them aimed high to supplement the high beams). I have mine aimed to supplement the low beams and run them all the time to make me more conspicuous to cars. The Piaas are bright enough that they totally drown out the stock low beam, yet I never get flashed by oncoming cars.
