    UPDATE!!!

    For those that don't aready own a Racelight,,, you will be able to get the complete assembly from www.cyclopsmotorsports.com


    I will still be selling the conversion kits for those that alredy have the light.

    Here is a testimonial I received yesterday......

    "I finally got the light on tonight and went for a rip up the road; Holy ^%#$^%$#^ shit is it nice! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] What a HUGE difference from stock. I used a silverstar ultra for now; don't know if they're really worth the money increase over a regular bulb, but I went for it anyway and I am pretty darn happy with the unit as a whole right now. I can't imagine I'll need any more for my riding."

    To summarize then: buy a 8"TT racelight, your kit less the reflector and the trucklite?

    The Trucklite was posted by someone showing what he wanted to mount in the conversion.

    The first post shows what is available from me. If you need a complete unit it can be purchased from http://www.cyclopsmotorsports.com/index.htm

    Can i ask,
    Is this lens conversion ok for both left hand and right hand drive countries?
    Is there a raise on the left or right of the projected beam? or is it pretty straight?

    This light can run of a A/C system, yes?

    cheers.

    P.S. Boatman, found any solutions for a clear lens cover?

    The reflector I include has low beam dip on the left for right hand driving. Hella does have a left hand version but it is unavailable to me (except for a great cost). You shoud be able to purchase the proper Hella from a supplier in your country.

    A/C.... the standard H4 bulb is 65/55w, as long as your electrical system can handle the wattage, you should be okay. I do know that A/C does not have the brightness of D/C.

    I have worked on a clear cover but need to perfect my vacuum forming skills. I've been too busy to work on it lately but need to get it done.

    I sent you a PM.

    STOCK UPDATE:::::

    I just want to be honest and let everyone know that because of a recent flurry of orders, I was caught off guard and am currently out of stock of the TT conversions. I should have these ready to ship by Tuesday (6/15). If you place an order from Cyclops before I get these shipped to them, I will drop ship the conversion at no additional cost.

    Thank you, Scott

    Would like to thank Boatman and Cyclops(Darryl) for getting me the H4 conversion setup.
    Great dealings with both and would recommend them to everyone.
    Just finished doing mine, with a few custom bits.

    H4 conversion with an Australian Hella H4 reflector thats ADR approved and my own custom dash and clear lens protector.
    Thanks a bunch guys.

    I just ordered a Honda Hornet 599 (CB600F) headlight to test out. It's a 7" round headlight w/ two separate reflectors for High and Low built in. I'm hoping that it fits the adapter ring. It is reputed to have an awsome light output stock, so it should have a wicked light output w/ an HID upgrade, specially since you can run both low and high at the same time.

    Thanks for the compliments guys :)

    The base plate, wich i called the dash is my own work.
    Made out of 3mm alloy, painted flat black, used a few stickers and bolted down with some nice stainless allen head bolts.

    You can buy the base plate that comes with the HID version of this light, but mine isnt HID and i didnt want the pre drilled holes that come with it, i wanted mine done differently, so had to make it myself.
    As you can also see, i wanted the sides covered a bit as well :)

    I'm looking for a race light setup for Black Rive Stages. My first priority is the best reflector for racing, however a Hi/Lo that could be used on the street would be nice.

    My question is how much better is the TT reflector for racing if it is better. I've seen the photos Boatman posted and I can't tell the difference. Can someone who has seen both in person comment. Boatman, can you give me your opinion?

    If the TT reflector is better, then I'll start with that and add the H4 setup later.

    Thanks,
    Kurt

    Hi Kurt,

    The reflector that TT provides withe the 8" racelight is a Hella 4000 Euro-beam. What I have found is that it gives a farther throw but not as much spread as the Hella 7" conversion. Two guys ran the conversion last year and had no complaints. I'm paranoid so I ran the 4000 and 2 SCMR16 HIDs (one fog and one pencil). All were wired independently.
