The lights work and look great, and I am very satisfied with the transaction.



This is the dimmed position...and the lights are set low so that I can run them on the street without blinding cagers


Thanks again.
Thanks for Posting. Im glad you like the lights

I may be doing a night ride soon, and I'll snap a pic when I do.

Nope, it's made by BDCW for "another" set of LED's, but works just fine in this application. My only concern with it is clearance with the fender if I bottom out the forks. So far no issues in normal riding though.

Are those the 20 degree beams or Combo?
Thanks again!!

Can the dimmable harness be connected to the OEM Hi/Low switch so the lights dimm and go to hi power w/ the OEM Hi/Low lights, or must one use the harness toggle to go from Hi to Low?

Thanks

Great Question and Thanks for asking.
Yes you can operate the high/low function from the factory switch,
We do have two different switch options on the dimmable harness,both handle bar mounted. one controls all functions of the LED lights, the other is on/off with your factory high beams being used to trigger the LEDs high/low beam operation.
A rider can use the multi function switch and still use his factory high beam to trigger the lights, By dong this the only difference is that you have a switch that does not do anything when you switch it to high, as an alternative you could use that power port on the switch for some other device.
For now we are sending all lights that are ordered with the dimmable harness the multi position switch, Please contact me threw email or Pm if you would like the basic on/off handle bar mounted switch.

On another note our ADV discount is 10% Earlier in this thread it was reported at 12% I will ask the Admin to change this.

These lights are fairly large and need a bit of room to fit. But they are potent

They're both 20deg. beams, I may have one pointed slightly more inward than the other...and thank-you.

Thank You!! I hope they work out well for you. They will last the lifetime of your bike and beyond.

PMed this to Darryl but I figure I should also post here for any inmate experience/recommendation. I'm thinking of switching to these LEDs as my normal driving lights as I'm having a hellacious time finding a good spot to mount the ballast for the HIDs I bought.

Here are the questions I asked, would gladly appreciate any help:

1) Would the two 20degree singles be okay for normal driving use (assuming I get the dimming harness)

2) Or would say a 30 degreee or 40 degree one be better if available?

3) Does the harness draw power directly from the battery?

4) What % is the low dim power at if high beam is 100%?

5) This is the hard one: Is it possible to connect the relay to my factory H4 to do the low and high beam instead of having to use a separate handlebar switch? I don't mind not being able to turn the lights off completely if the bike is on.

6) Is the light output pattern the same regardless if I mount it up down or left right? I have a factory headlight plate that used to hold a 7" headlight bucket and I figure I can mount 2 singles sideways with the plats on the sides holding it.

Thanks in advance guys!

Absolutely

We find anything more than 20 degrees is a bit of a waste, you loose to much forward lighting, after all these are designed for long range.
3) Does the harness draw power directly from the battery?
Yes there are two power feeds. One to the battery the other to the switched power on the bike.
4) What % is the low dim power at if high beam is 100%?
50%
5) This is the hard one: Is it possible to connect the relay to my factory H4 to do the low and high beam instead of having to use a separate handlebar switch? I don't mind not being able to turn the lights off completely if the bike is on.
You can do this, Note that the dimmer works by dropping power on high beam operation, Most likely you would tie into the H4 connector low beam and constant switched power on the bike.
6) Is the light output pattern the same regardless if I mount it up down or left right? I have a factory headlight plate that used to hold a 7" headlight bucket and I figure I can mount 2 singles sideways with the plats on the sides holding it.
The lights have a conical beam and can be mounted in any direction without affecting beam angles.
Thanks in advance guys!

First the caveats:

1) These pic's were taken with my cell phone camera so they obviously are not quality shots.
2) I have (2) 20deg lights and I have them aimed down so that I can run them on the street. It's set so that the top of the main beam is 3" above the height of the LED's on the bike at 20' from a wall.
3)In my opinion, I could easily gain a ton of distance by aiming these a few degrees higher, but then I'd piss people off. You can see the light intensity on the ground in front of the bike indicating the angle I have them set to.
4) What you are looking at in the photos is a downhill view to a perpindicular street. The near edge of the street is 118' from the bike according to google earth. That GE image is below so there is no question in regards to distance.


And this second one is a street view looking up to the spot where the bike is located from the street itself.


Image #1 is the stock headlight on low beam.



Image #2 is the stock headlight on high beam.



Image #3 is the stock low beam + LED at 50%


Image #4 is stock high beam + LED 50%


Image #5 is stock low beam + LED 100%


and the final image is stock high beam + LED 100%



I hope this helps some people out.
Personally, I would tilt those way up, Aim is absolutely critical too get the most out of the long range lights. Your losing the distance and IMO other than reliability,really the main reason to go with the long Range lights. For those wanting light closer to the bike, I would probably point them to another product.
Do you think that running on low is still to bright for oncoming cars?
Are you happy with the quality and performance of the product?
Thanks for posting

You're right, I've intentionally aimed them low, and I want people to be aware of that. Aiming them higher will get you much more distance. It's easy to see that by looking at the hot spot in front of the bike.

I have not had an issue with oncoming cars yet, but I am being very conservative in my aiming. Not only is it aimed low, but also slightly off to the right of the bike (to assist with the oncoming traffic thing).

The great thing about them is the adjust-ability, I'm one 13mm wrench and a hex away from tossing light down the road or into the trees.

I'm very happy with the total product, not just the lights, but the wiring, switch, dimmer, etc. (I was really happy to see actual copper wiring rather than el cheapo alum.) So far everything does exactly what it's supposed to do, every flick of the switch. I can't ask for more than that.
