Those new ones look bad ass...



I received my LR4 Floods and they are very nice! I may do a dimmer but since I ride this bike mostly off-road (during daylight) it's not a big issue. I want them on with the key so they're tied into the small running light over the headlight, that tells you how little power they draw. My buddy has the other brand and I can see no difference in quality or output, and I didn't have to pay extra for heavy-duty brackets. If they prove durable and there's good customer service down the road, than these are winners!

In terms of brightness: When I did my nighttime adjustment, these are so bright it's almost hard to tell if my bike headlight is on or off....and my TE's headlight is a decent, modern, 55/60w light. If I get caught on the trail after dark, I'm in good shape now.


Here's a big reason I want plenty of light on the front of my bike (from my CO-UT trip last Sept)... http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...1&postcount=16

They look great but I think where you've mounted them they're going to drown out your indicators.

Great looking ADV bike you have there. What model is it and I guess you're going to tell us it works great too.

Are the square spot lights ACTUALLY better than the round flood lights for running 70 mph down the highway at night ???

The square spots are half the price and alot less lumen,even though the beam is narrower.

They definitely drown the turn signals. Not so much an issue on this bike because it's used 99% away from traffic. With two relays I could make each LED flash with the turn signals...


Regarding the Husqvarna, I call it my TE630GS..., it's my go-anywhere touring bike. There's a link up there to my last RR.

I assume you're referring to the LR62, since you said half the price? The range is about the same as the LR4, but the beam is much tighter. The deep reflectors bend more light forward, so you give up a lot of vision to the sides for the longer range.

So,if I understand your statement.The lr4 reaches out just as far but with the side benefit of extra light out to the sides ?

That's correct, more light overall. I run a combo of both. If I had to pick just one, I'd stick with the LR4's.

Hey Jason - we sure will. If you're interested in something, shoot me a PM with your address and the item(s) you want, and I'll check the shipping cost for you.

Final production for the 1st batch is this week. PCB factory was slow in getting the boards done, so we were waiting on those :(. Knock on wood, I'll have the dimmers here the following week.

As to shipping to Canada, just to give you an idea, a set of LR4's usually runs about ~$20 first class and ~$30 priority.

hi Justin,
