Cyclops always supports the sport,
As the original helmet light manufacture, we will always support you our very special customers.
Haha.. I wondered looking at the suspension compression
You simply can not find better lights at any price.

Review: I installed these lights on a 07 BMW GS Adventure with factory fog lamps. On dark rural roads they are ok, but you better keep your speed down. Added the long range optimus led round lights and WOW what a difference, night and day difference. The build quality is fantastic. Just got back from a 3:30Am test ride, I love um. Also the customer service is unheard of these days, Daryl helped several times with questions I had about the product, with a real upbeat attitude. I would highly recommend these lights. I got the 10 degree and 20 degree light package. You won't be disappointed. John
I'm currently redoing a 1988 Honda Africa Twin and I've chosen to redo it with the custom fairing below:
I really want to go with LED's as my primary driving lights. As you can see, I've got two, 3" diameter, vertically-oriented openings to work with. I am exploring my options and I really like what Cyclops offers. Can you suggest which pair of lights (or combination) you think would work best in my situation considering the dimensions I have to work with and the fact that these will be replacing my main headlights?
That will be a really nice bike when completed, love the fairing!!
Unfortunately our long range lights are 3.5" dia and will not fit threw the hole. They may fit with the face being outside of the fairing, but Im not thinking that's what you are after.
I just installed the combo set of LONG RANGE OPTIMUS LED AUXILIARY LIGHT SQUARE on my F650gs and came home from work last night at midnight. All I can say is WOW!. I am very pleased with the performance. I purposely went out of my way to find some very dark areas with no street lights. Only one request I would like the filters/covers that the round versions have available. Any plans for the square lamps?
Damn, Cyclops stuff was really looking to be the way to go. Thanks for letting me know.
Edit: Do any of the smaller diameter Cyclops lights offer anything you'd be comfortable suggesting for headlight replacement?
Unfortunately the sales volume of the square compared to the round version just doesn't add up too pay for the tooling expense for the covers.
I would not recommend any of the smaller lights for headlight replacement. Although the NXG series is potent, the difference between them and the long range is just to large of a gap.
Super stoked for my Cyclops headlight - should be shipping soon! Woot!
I would do some trimming on the inside of the fairing and do a flush mount inside. Add some type of weatherstripping as a buffer and to seal the openings to the lights. These lights are good enough for the added effort.
I second that motion.
Beauty of composites, is that you can alter the shapes with ease....
Just wanted to post about my experience with Darryl and my new lights I got from him about two weeks ago. I found the lights though this thread and some others on ADV and they caught my interest right away. After some emails and phone calls with product info and bouncing available times to meet, I was able to come by and see the lights in person and meet Darryl. What a great experience - he answered any question I had, provided tons of valuable advice, and got me the lighting solution that I was looking for.
As for the lights themselves - I picked up the 3.5 rounds, f800gs mount, dimmer and harness, and a set of the amber covers for foggy rainy nights. Everything went together smoothly, the harness is great quality, the mount is strong and well finished, and the lights put out a very impressive amount of light. I was pleasantly surprised by how well they work and the amount of light they throw out. I positioned them to be a bit above the headlight on low beam (50% aux power) so as not to blind other cars and they really help in the daytime and in the dark. When I hit the high beams they go to full power and really light things up nice. I have only got to use them twice so far and on the road as I have been gone for work lately, but should get a chance to see em in some fast dirt and some single track soon...
Totally happy with every aspect of my lighting solution and I feel confident that if I ever have any issues with them that I will get taken care of. Now I am going to save up for a couple pairs of the 4.5s for my overland rig....
Thanx again Darryl!
Its always nice to meet with our customers and really show them the difference in quality and performance from what they might be used to.
Looking forward to getting some of those Wednesday night rides in.
We appreciate your buisness
Unfortunately, the problem is a little different. The optic/glass of the light itself fits well within the opening (the optic/glass was something like 2.6" in diameter or something). The problem is that the plastic shroud/housing is ~3.75" in diameter at its widest point, meaning that the center-to-center distance between the two fairing openings doesn't allow two of these lights to fit one on top of the other.
I could always choose to fit one of these lights to one of the openings, and source a smaller light to fit the other...
I didn't think it would work out for you, I wish I could point you in another direction for a quality product, Unfortunately I am unaware of a light that fits the bill.
Many think by the low price our lights are plastic, however the long range is all aluminum.
Yup, that's why I was really looking forward to these lights, lots of good things I've heard. I tried to make little mock-lights with the dimensions you gave me, but it's too close to call. Because the openings are offset in the "z-axis" (meaning one opening sits slightly forward relative to the other), I may have enough space so that the widest parts of the lights don't hit each other. It's a tight fit for sure.
In any case, this part of the rebuild is a ways off... I was trying to get some research in to save some time. Who knows, maybe I'll buy a pair off you just to give it a try and then sell them at a loss if they don't. I'll be in touch toward the end of the summer hopefully. Thanks for all your help!
