    Update 2/15/15: Current Special - $10 dimmer with our high performance LR35 and LR40 lights! See this post for details. Same deal on our LD35 lights! See this post for details.

    A lot has changed at LEDRider over the last year and a half since we started this thread. We're constantly working to bring quality, high performance LED lights to market, at great prices. One thing that hasn't changed is our devotion to amazing customer service - and - we back every purchase with a no BS warranty and return policy.

    Since the launch of our popular LR4, we've added a number of great units to our product line.

    The LR35/LR40 Series:

    http://ledrider.com/shop/?model_number=LR3540

    The LR35/LR40 series of lights are the next generation of high quality multi-emitter aux lighting in our line up. These lights are built to extreme standards and feature state of the art designs. From their massive cooling fins that allow massive output, to custom engineered 3D optics for a focused beam, everything about these lights was designed to perform to the highest levels. The LR35 uses 7 Cree XT-E chips to deliver 3640 Lumens, while the LR40 uses 4 Cree XM-L2 chips for a staggering 4160 Lumens, both from a ~3 inch package! These lights offer great range and width, as the 3D optics provide a tight 10 degree center beam, with a wide angle secondary pattern.

    Price: LR35 is $200/pair and LR40 is $210/pair before ADV15 coupon code

    Product Specifications
    Model: LR35
    7x Cree XT-E LEDs
    3640 Lumens
    2.6 Amps @ 12 Volt DC (~31 watts)

    Model: LR40

    LD35 Spot:

    http://ledrider.com/shop/?model_number=LD35

    Our LD35 spot couples a Cree Mt-G2 Emitter with a large reflector to provide long distance lighting, and a wide field of view, from a 3 and 1/4 inch light that only uses 22 watts of power. The LD35's reach out over 803 feet at 1 Lux (1607 feet at 1/4 Lux), while also providing a wide field of view to illuminate the sides of the road. Not only does the LD35 provide amazing range, the Cree MT-G2 chip peaks at 5000 Kelvin, with a wide spectrum, to provide light that creates greater definition at night.

    Price: LD35 is $200/pair before ADV15 coupon code!

    Product Specifications
    Model: LD35
    Cree MT-G2 LED
    1800 Lumens
    1.8 Amps @ 12 Volt DC (~22 watts)

    LR5 High Output 5000 Lumen Light:


    http://ledrider.com/shop/?model_number=LR5P

    Our LR5 has been incredibly popular with bikes with big alternators :). The LR5 Hybrid Flood light uses 5 Cree XM-L LEDs to put out over 5000 Lumens, in a package that is only 4.3 inches. The LR5 series are built to take a beating, using polycarbonate lenses, polyester UV resistant powercoat, rugged metal wire inputs and sealed Deutsch connectors. The advanced optics turn night into day at the flip of a switch.

    Short Web Review: http://www.doctorschierling.com/blog/review-of-madstad-windshield-and-led-rider-lights-on-a-gl1800

    Price: LR5 is $230/pair before ADV15 coupon code. That's under $200 for 10,000 Lumens of light for ADVriders!

    The two pictures below show two LR5's compared to two H4 Silverstar highbeams. These were taken with a DSLR with the same manual settings. The farthest trees out on the tree line are roughly 500 feet. These lights literally turn night into day and rip through the trees! Unfortunately the trees were in the way so the full potential can't be seen.

    Two LR5's: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/31888011/IMG_6205.JPG

    Product Specifications
    Model Number: LR5 Flood
    5x Cree XML U2 LEDs
    Custom Engineered Reflectors for 25 Degree hybrid pattern
    5000+ Lumens
    3.8 Amps @ 12 Volt DC (~45 watts)

    LR5's mounted on a Goldwing - From the owner, "I was able to test my new LR5's on my last BBG run and wow, they are great. The really turned the night into day. They are a great addition to my HID low beams. Of course they can only be used when there is no oncoming traffic. :)".

    And of course, our original, and very popular, LR4 light that delivers tons of punch from a small package (2.15 inches diameter)

    LR4 features listed below:

    4x Cree XML U2 LEDs
    Custom Engineered Mirrored Reflector for a Focused Beam
    3500+ Lumens
    2.2 Amps @ 12v
    12-36 Volts DC Input
    Thermal Protection
    Heavy duty mounting hardware is included at no cost. These lights are well built, with an extremely solid feel; and amazing performance.

    Just bought a pair of these from Justin. I was very impressed with the feel and quality look of these lights right off the bat. The mount they come with is beefier than what I've seen on other brands. As a bonus, you cannot beat the price either.

    I'll get around to installing them this week hopefully, will report back.

    FYI Folks - We're back in stock on the LR4's. Had a few inmates waiting to order, but were out of stock on the LR4's

    Here's some shot's I was able to grab the other night. Bike is on center stand. The fence is @150 feet from bike. Farthest tree in the background is between 400-500 feet. Crappy camera, non scientific 3 foot per pace measuring, for comparative purposes only. Still working on getting some more "professional" photos. The limited exposure on my camera just doesn't capture enough light for an accurate representation.

    Here's some pictures showing the real world performance of a pair of LR4 Quad Cree XM-L U2 flood lights at 1000 feet. Compared to similar quad Cree XML lights, the LR4 has less light scatter and close in glare, and more range. The reflector design throws a beam like that of a high end flood flashlight; tight beam in the middle for range, with a secondary flood beam for a wide field of view.

    Bike was in turnout on right side of road on center stand. Camera was on tripod on the left side of road. 1st tree is at 750 feet, second tree is at 1000 feet. Bike GPS was reset at the farthest tree out and ridden back and turned around where we took the pictures: https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-...ACnc/pfYmP4xFgpA/s912/IMG_20131102_235944.jpg

    Note: you can click on the pictures on drop box to zoom in to full size.

    First shot is stock FJR (H4) low beams with +80 Halogens:

    This is stock FJR (H4) highbeams, +80% halogens:

    This is low beams plus 2 LR4 floods:

    In other news, WynPro has designed let brackets for the Gen2 FJR, more info here: http://ledrider.com/lr4-light-brackets-for-the-gen2-fjr/

    We are also working on developing a quality, low cost, rotary dimmer that can be used with our LED lights (and just about any other LED that does not have it's own built in dimming circuitry). We opted for the rotary design as it's simple, and does not require the use of a RF dongle that can be lost or have a dead battery. There will be a high beam over-ride on the dimmed setting. At first it will be available in a single 7 amp channel. Once we are happy with the results, we'll expand to a dual channel as well, with independent over-rides, to control multiple lights with there own settings (for example, you could set your left light to 0% with low beams, and your right to 20% - or control multiple sets of lights). We'll post up more details as they become available.

    As always, coupon code ADV10 is good for 10% off for inmates :)

    I installed a pair of LR4's and mini's on my FJR this weekend. They are managed by a Skene controller. These things are awesome! You could land aircraft with them. Justin was great to deal with and even shipped before he was paid when my money ended up in a Paypal loop.
    Caution advised when aiming and setting up power levels. These things can be hazardous to other drivers. :flip

    It's moving along. I should have prototypes within two weeks. Once I sign off on the design, will be another week or two for the first shipment to come.

    It took me a while to get to them, but I finally did the install. It was a very simple process. I am powering them through a relay that uses the high beam as its 12V switched power source. Luckily the V-strom has plenty of room for extra wiring, so you can barely it's there.

    First impression is that they are super bright, even during the day. I still need to try them out in the dark, and get them aimed correctly.

    Thanks for the install pics. I think you may find them too bright at night mounted low on your forks and move them up higher, due to the road glare.

    Yes! Thanks for asking, just got the dimmer prototypes today. I snapped a few quick pictures below. I am very happy with the design so far. The cases are 2 inches square, with a big glove friendly knob. Red/Black wires on the right are +/- 12v input. On the left, Red/Black is output to the lights, Blue is a trigger wire that bypasses dimming function when ~12v is applied (from stock highbeam wire etc). The knob has a full "off" position, so no switch is needed (i.e. totally off, bypass does not turn on lights). The lights are also fully off when the dial is at the lowest position, so they will only come on when power is applied to the blue wire; and they are fully adjustable from 0-100% with the dial.

    Just a few more tweaks, and we'll be going into production for the first run. If you have any feedback and thoughts, please speak up and let me know.

    Technically, yes. But since I didn't edit the thread title to remove the holiday special bit (which I now did), I'll let you in on the deal. The special was a pair of LR4 lights for $130. If you'd like to take advantage of that, send me a PM and I'll send a link for you to use for the purchase. :)
