What lamps do you use in the EXTREME LED RACE LIGHT?
Are they available separately?
I set mine up that way. I just used the regular standard wire harness with the switch.
I wired the switch to the blue wire (high beam lead) behind the headlight.
This way I can run the headlights by themselves or flip the switch and now the LED aux lights come on with the high beams only so when I'm on a road with traffic I don't have to hit two switches to dim all the lights, just the regular low beam light switch.
There is quite a bit of wire in the harness so I shortened a few of the wires to clean up the installation under the tank.
There is a little pocket of room on the right side of the frame between the frame and the airbox that I put the relay. I put the fuse under the seat for easy access if needed. I believe there is another fuse near the switch which I located next to the 12v outlet on the left side of the dash. Underneath that outlet there is an access hole which allows you to get to the aux power wires and the fuse for the switch without tearing apart any body panels.
Most of the Long Range lights are on street bikes.
Its very easy to have them operate with the high beams, basically just run the trigger wire into the high beam and your golden. If you want dimming you can also do this and have them come to full brightens with the high beams and dimmed while in the low beam setting
If you don't require dimming and want them to only come on when the high beams are on order the standard harness, just cut the wire with the included toggle switch and run that to your high beam.
If you want dimming and don't need the lights to turn all the way off,order the skene kit without the handle bar mounted switch.
Thanks for posting
For those that go with the skene dimmer package there are no relays, just the small skene dimmer box. and much less wire.
They are the Long Range Extremes shown in photos back a page or two in this thread.
Thanx, those are what I need.
What is the actual diameter at the largest point?
4.65 inches Dia. is the widest point at the face of the light.
Just checking ...
Is there any volume control knob that you can provide with Long Range Extreme instead of skene dimmer?
It suits my needs better .
We do have a dimmer with a control knob, usually that is hidden behind fairings etc and pre set to the dimming level you chose then operated via handle bar switches, we have moved entirely to the Skene dimmer due to its convenience for the rider, Customizable configurations, Physical size,lack of need for relays, with less wiring required and reliability.
Im happy to set you up with the control knob style but we have removed it from the site.
That's great news.
You see i want to replace my aux halogen lights and since all cables are in place ,i do not want to mess again with them.
Nevertheless i'll check again skene's dimmer to figure out how it could take place in existing implementation.
I'd like to compliment you on the lighting pics (with the cones, pickup, and gate) that you have done. These objects give us a nice known reference size at distance so we can make a good judgement on the light performance. Not sure if it was intentional, but it was EXCELLENT that you used a black pickup truck! That really gives us a good indicator how powerful these 25w lights are (post #703 in this thread). A white pickup would have been easy to see, but it takes a lot of light to make a black pickup become identifiable in pitch black environment at 600ft. Excellent demonstration in real world terms! Thank you!
Ok I'm confused :huh
Are these the 10 watt or the 25 watt?
Heading home tonite from Alaska, so hopefully I'll have mine mounted in a few days

Do you currently have a dimmer setup? Other than possibly the dimmer the Long Range lights will be adaptable into your existing halogen wire harness.
Thank you Ned. Im learning. Thanks to all you ADV members and your great sugestions
The Long Range Extreme lights are a single emitter 25 watt light.
Going to get a set before my big June trip.
Anyone use the Long Rate Dual LED auxiliary light by Cyclops. I want a super clean mount and if I can't find one I'll have one designed and CNC'd, has to look great with my 2014 R1200GS. I'm looking for the brightest and best LED light for my bike.
Thank You Sir!!!
A handful of these have made there way onto bikes, Several ADV members are using them. Most have ended up on Semis and large equipment in the Canadian interior.
IMO a better choice for a bike is the Long Range extreme. Lighter and a longer beam throw
