They've arrived, but they've arrived in France.

I should have a review up two weeks from today, when I get back. Perhaps even a small video like I did with the Givi top case.

I'm planning to attach them on the inside of the crash bars. I'm a bit worried about water resistance and heat, but if they work well, I might even order a second set (would the battery be okay with that?)


Stay tuned :)

He said he would post a review in two weeks, that was 3 days ago. If your thinking about it you should just buy them and do a review too

Ok, I pulled the plug. ETA is five days, and knowing myself like I do the installation will probably be done as soon as I put my hands on the thing...

I'll report back after installation.

First thoughts: these things are huge! There goes the idea of installing 2 sets. :)

Wink

I'm uploading a video to my YouTube channel, straight from the city of lights. Get it while it's hot.

Can you find my channel?

Great video on how to unpack them! Mas seria bom vê-los já instalados na moto...

Yeah, these things are huge. I think I'll have to crank the preload to compensate for them.

Looking at the size it might be possible to fit some HIDs in there ?

Oh, the envy...

Just received the lights, they are huge but very light! I think that the whole kit (lights, wiring, switch, etc) weights less than 1Kg.

Hopefully light enough so that my luggage doesnt reach 10kg. Disadvantages of flying low cost...

Not much but hopefully enough to give an idea.

I'm worried about the switch... The handlebar is too large. Pics to follow
