    No plans on more bluish lights.

    Perhaps anyone with the yellow or blue xpel light protection will comment on the dust visibility?

    Send me your address and I'll send you a free pair to try out, choose your color, email sandjoh@gmail.com

    Cree makes the LED component of the light. Typically a light includes the LED, a driver or circuitry to supply voltage/current to the LED, and a housing.

    You might want to ask the manufacturer if the lights are dimmable.

    Ok.

    Is there any risk to the dimmer or the LED's if I hooked them up on that dimmer and tested them?

    There is some risk, although minimal.

    I put the 30 spots on my F800R and they are great for conspicuity. I'm thinking about upgrading my lights on the 1200GS. I've got PIAA 510s in yellow for conspicuity and 910s keyed to the high beams. The 30s or 44s would work fine for conspicuity for me.

    So what's the long range light you're working on? Inquiring minds want to know.

    How about some pics:evil

    It uses Cree XML T6 leds and a great reflector design. Due to the length of the reflector/optics, we will not use our current form factor / housing. The multiple led lights are larger than our current lights. More to come......

    The reflector is round, the housings are square or rectangular. Will have 1, 2 and 4 led versions.

    My mdl 60's have had moisture problems and are now getting pitted on the reflectors. Can I send back for replacement?

    That is sooo funny. Almost three years ago I was running prototypes of my led lights on my dirt ninja. Camping with friends on a GSA1150 with those exact lights. Later that night we are in the woods on the bikes, side by side down a long fire road. He turns on the 4 50watt halogens and they emit a nice yellowish hue. I turn on my "little" led lights and we both stare, speechless.

    A few seconds later the GSA rider says. When can I get some of those leds:D

    A pair of our Model 30s will smoke that halogen setup for around $100 while using less that 20watts (pair) compaired to 200watts for the halogens.
