I have a 95 Triumph Tiger, and want to add some auxiliary lights for better conspicuity, as well as to provide more lighting for my 55 year old eyes while night riding here in the Adirondacks where whitetails are prevalent.
The Tiger alternator output is not great, and I wish to add some heated gear at some point, so your LED lights look like just the ticket.
I am having a difficult time deciding between the 10 watt and 25 watt options, although the added flood lenses and amber lenses of the 25 watt units would seem to provide better conspicuity and help to illuminate the margins of the roads where the deer like to congregate before stepping out into the road.
Boiled down: are the 10 watt units enough, or do I have to sacrifice more alternator output for the 25s to do what I am after? If I do the 25 watt lenses, do you have a carry case for carrying them on the bike during trips when I want to swap them out, and can they be swapped multiple times easily?

Thanks!

Finally managed to get them installed on my Tiger. Pretty straightforward, but a bit of a pain on the old girl. Not a ton of mounting options, and practically needed to disassemble the whole thing to get the wiring done. They are definitely bright though. I like that you can adjust the brightness from the high beam switch.

The 10 watt versions are very potent. I guarantee that they will work great as conspicuity lights and also work very well for night riding, for your application I would recommend the 20 degree units.
The 25's are crazy bright with the longest distance of ANY aux led available. Having the option to quickly change covers for different lighting affects is really nice. changing the filter is just a matter of popping off one and popping on another no tools required.
We do have some felt bags, If you want one with your order let us know and I can throw one in.

Off Road Ryder, can you tell us a little about the long range light headlight setup that was on Konflict's KTM Super Enduro? (http://www.konflictmotorsports.com/b...e-light-review) I'm looking for mounting options for my SE and didn't know how to pull off dual 5" since I don't have crash bars. Was thinking 10watt would be ok on my forks but exploring the options. .. (More light is almost always better, right?)

Thanks!

The Konflict bike is running our Long Range Extreme Race light, basically 2 Long Range extremes in a nice alu frame. also running the skene dimmer wired into the factory switches.
http://www.cyclopsadventuresports.com/Extreme-LED-Race-light_p_64.html

There where mods that needed to be done in order for it to fit the SE. the ignition switch is in the way, Alex's spaced the light out with some delrin spacers he had made.
A guy could build there own platform to hold the lights in the same position.

Long Range Extreme Filters

I just ordered some long range extremes for my Super Tenere but I forgot to ask you about the differences in your snap on filters.

I see you have wide beam clear and just clear filters. Would the clear lens work to protect the lights from rock chips, and do they have much/any effect on the beam pattern?

How about the wide beam filters, what scenarios do you suggest these get used?

My main use of these lights is to light up the back roads of my nightly commute in hopes they help me get a jump any critters before they jump. Now that I have written this I am thinking a plain clear for the left side and a wide beam for the right would be good, thoughts? If you think its a good idea can you add it to my order?

Thanks for your commitment to great customer service; it shows through in this thread. I am looking forward to getting them hooked up and being able to SEE.

-Ryan

Thanks for the Order Ryan!!

The lights use a polycarbonate lens, no cover is necessary, You would be hard pressed to break a lens.
The wide angle filters make a HUGE difference in how the light projects.
Photos below..

So far on my own bike Im using ambers during the day, and clear at night, although when I raced the bike at the 24hr in oct I ran the Ambers during the night when it got very foggy, the ambers helped quite a bit. I had the 5th fastest lap time on a 950 against real dirt bikes, That wasn't due to riding skill.
I could see where most others where riding by brail.

I could see a guy using the wide angle filters for medium or slower paced trail riding or running one wide range and the other side normal like you commented on. Even with the wide filters on both lights they project farther than 99% of the LED aux lights available today. Its a setup I most likely will be running on my Thursday night rides this summer.

Our mission is to provide the best possible customer service with great products Thank You
I know you will find them useful, I can add them to your order.

Here the truck is at 600 ft with the cones at 100 ft intervals, the gate is approx. 950 ft with the far tree line at 1200 plus




Long Range extreme with wide clear filters



Long Range extreme with no filters
