I am very happy with only 10's on my bike.
I also haven't heard from anyone that was not happy with either beam pattern or combination of beams.
I just got the 10/20 combo in the mail. I don't have them installed yet but they seem like really good quality units.

A couple things

-which is the 10 and which is the 20? There's is nothing on the box or in the instructions that identifies them.
-I got it figured out but someone with lesser wiring skill would be screwed. The directions are reeeeeaaaly basic.

Can't wait to get these up and running!

Just looked. It doesn't say that 10 or 20. Both lights have part numbers (that are different) but nothing in the numbers point to which is which.

1212240614(9-32v)

and

1301211093(9-32v)

is all thats marked on them.

The 10 degrees have smooth reflectors, the 20 are faceted.

even with the new instructions? do you maybe have a set you have been sitting on for a while?

I am really confused on why anyone would have any problems at all with setting the wiring up.
There is not much to it. Basically plug and play. No reason for elaborate instructions other than a basic diagram. even color coded and marked?
I don't know what could be easier?

Please give us some suggestions?

Thanks for the info.

I haven't had these long. I ordered them labor day weekend and they came in a few days later. Those directions you just posted are not the same as the ones I got.

Mine are for "Prime LED Drive lights" Basically a bar with 6 LED's.

Yours make more sense

Thanks! I hope you like the 600 series light bar.
Ive been pulling my hair out all morning trying to figure out how we can make the Long Range directions as simple and specific as possible.
The LED light bars and some Prime drive Aux lights are a little different as they are not MC specific,(other than the dirt bike kits) so a general doc should have been included.
Although all work like the above Long Range doc. With the intro of the Long Range Motorcycle kits,We thought a specific long Range light doc was necessary.
Prime drive is the name of the dimmable system, not necessarily the particular light, They can be single lights or a light bar.
here are the basic Prime drive instructions.

Just so we're on the same page I didn't order the light bar, I ordered the combo 10/20 degree light kit with the moto harness but it came with directions for the light bar and not for the 10/20 combo kit. And, after seeing the directions you posted for the light bar, mine only came with the top half of those directions, lol.

Much appreciated!

I still need to machine brackets to mount these on my smr and just got material in today. I'm hoping to get everything installed this weekend.

Thank you!!!
We learn a lot from our fellow inmates, I always appreciate the feedback.

I just mounted a set of the new Extreme lights on the shops 950.
They actually fit well and are not to big like I thought they might be, Photos to fallow.
The new site is also coming along nicely, no more having to call in for international orders etc.. We cant wait.
Note that I will be on a ride from today threw next Monday. so I wont be checking Pms until Tuesday
I hope all of you are getting out as well.

Round Cyclops LED driving lights

I am in the process of re-outfitting my bike for my next extended trip (3-4 mo. in South America) and switched over to the Cyclops LED driving lamps. I will be testing them out for ADVMoto magazine on COBDR next week.

So far I'm very impressed, build quality is top notch with very nice fit/finish and they look very attractive on the bike. The wiring was a no brainer, easy install, simple instructions and fit well. The option for a low output setting so I can use them full time for visibility without blinding drivers or being a bad Stuart for motorcyclist was one of the reasons I chose these lights. the ability to adjust the low setting couldn't be easier with simple twist of a dial. The handlebar switch that comes with it has a two position for high/low. (it can be wired into the low beam on non-BMW's)

I can't wait to put these to the test with some night riding this Friday

Did the install today-





I tried the low mount but decided I didn't like it as much.



They're also strong enough to support my 210 pounds of fury (the brackets, not the lights ;) )




I can't wait till its dark and I can try them out!
