Looks really good. Mine should be here next week. How and where to mount is my biggest concern.
Thanks for the photos, Those look great on the 1190R.
On my personal bike I welded small tabs to the crash bars, understand most wont want to do that to their pretty powdercoating.
The Techmount tube mounts where the best we have seen (for tube mounting anyways) and are the same as offered by PIAA and many others.
One tip on mounting them is to clean any oil etc out of the barrel hole/stem and use red Loctite. Get that set screw good and tight.
If anyone knows of a better tube frame mount I would love to hear about it. We want to offer only the best.
I absolutely love these lights. one light can be configured in several different beam patterns and colors via the replaceable polycarbonate filters that snap on the front of the light. A rider can mix and match to truly tune their lighting for any condition.
The longest distance LED aux light in existence, built tough to last.
Dimmable with the skene dimmer.
Team Heavyweights all ran these at the 24hr and had the best lighting at the event.
The cones in these photos are at 100 ft intervals with the truck parked at 600 ft and the gate slightly more than 900 ft.
Here are the Long Range Extreme with no filters
The Extreme LEDs with the Amber spot filters
The Same Extreme LED lights with the clear flood filters installed
just got the lights today. Hopefully, I'll be able to mount them up this weekend. They are definitely beefy.
LR Extreme dual LED race light ordered today.
Can't wait to get them installed on the SE... no more worthless stock lighting! I'll post the setup & thoughts when I get them installed.
I cant wait to see your setup. You wont be breaking these lights.
I really like those 10 degree. I will have to look at your website for a pair on my new 1190. Need to also source the crash bar mount shown as I like them.
the mounts look like the ones he sells. That's what I got for mine.
Congratulations on the new bike!
Here is a link to the mounts.
Manufactured by Techmount.
I finally got a chance to get mine all mounted up and tried them at night. WOW, what a light. I have the 10 degree lights and I am totally blown away at how much light they shoot out there.
Guy's the pictures shown above do not do these light justice. The pictures only show the strongest part of the beam and do not show the rest of the light that is lighting up the sides as well.
Just what I was looking for in a light. I would say they are a true 100 mph light at night.
I tied mine into the high beam so when the switch is on I can just use my high beams to turn on the lights for quick one switch operation when on roads with traffic.
And to be clear, in the pics I posted above, the mounts that I have are NOT the ones that Cyclops sells. They are a cheaper brand that while look the same are not the same quality. The ones I used required me to make an aluminum shim in addition to the already supplied shims to fit the bars right.
I got them to work ok but for the couple bucks more just buy from Cyclops and be done with it.
Very very happy with the lights, service, and quality.
Thank you Sir Very much appreciated!
The camera will never pickup all the peripheral light that the lights put out. I also prefer the 10 degree lights.
Why sacrifice quality and output for a few dollars. Buy quality and buy once.
Thank you. You will love the New Race light with the colored and wide angle covers.
Did you wire in with the high beam option or use the switch? Just curious since our bikes are now using can bus.
I used both. I wired the switch to the blue wire on the headlights hi beam.
so basically the switch arms them and I use the high beam switch to turn them on and off with the headlights . no problem so far.
I am very interested in a pair of your led aux lights for my 990 adv
Have a question about the wiring and switching. I am thinking of getting the kTM euro light switch (see http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=894074)
because i dont want to add stuff to the handle bars.
With this switch combined with the skene dimmer, am I correct to think I can use one position for dimmed use of the lights and the second position for 100% power?
If so, is it indeed the Skene dimmer I need? And the skene wiring harness?
Thanks for asking
I have to admit that I am not very familiar with the KTM Euro switch.
That being said it should work, but so will your stock switches without putting anything extra on the bars.
You would want the skene dimmer with harness and no handle bar mounted switch.
That setup will allow you to run the LED aux lights via the stock controls, the factory high beam switch will activate the LEDs dimming functions.
You can adjust the dimming from 0 to 100%
Alternatively the Cyclops handle bar mounted switch can be used to keep your aux lights independent of the high beams, or I should say allow you to turn them completely off., I think that's what the euro switch would also allow you to do.
Thanks Darryl for the quick reply.
Yes, i understood from this thread that i can switch the aux leds by the high beam switch. But i prefer to be able to operate them independently. And without an extra switch on the bar.
So, the Skene harness it must be.
do i need extra relays for the leds?
Btw i appreciate the opportunity for inquiries through this forum, very informative and confidence inspiring. And kudos for the 24h race you did, great stuff to watch!
With the skene dimmer no relays are required.
We have now moved all our dimmers to the skene , Ill clean up this thread as much as possible asap.
To set them up as you describe you would need some type of switch, If you don't want a separate switch on the bars, that may be a reason to run the Euro switch.
That's why we offer the skene kit with a switch or without a switch.
We want the rider to have options and not be purchasing things they don't need.
I also appreciate you asking in this thread.
Is it possible to wire these in so that they come on only with the high beam on? If so, what harness set up would you need. I am thinking on a street bike this may be the wise way to go. Run the high beams and Long range lights in the day time and have them available at night when conditions are such that you can use it. Thanks.
Or, what are others doing that have these on street ridden motorcycles?
