    Finally I managed to make a short comparison video to demonstrate the Tesla LED's output:

    No worries! My pleasure and thanks for the video. It does a really good job of showing the differences, and how much light you can throw out in front of you.

    I also wanted to mention to everyone that all of the kits will now come with weatherpack style connectors as well:

    Nice, I raided my leftover parts bin for basically the same connector.

    George, I emailed you about a week ago, not sure if you got it. Can you get replacement lenses? I had a rock split one on my 2000 lumen light. I know, should have been using some 3M film or something, and from now on I will...

    I'll check on the exact diameter and let you know. I don't have any in stock, but I don't think it would be hard to get them

    Excellent choice! I've installed my Teslas with exact those AMP superseals as well ;)

    Here's a short video from how about I've switched the Teslas. The headlight is a 4300 Kelvin HID, parking light is a small 3W LED.

    I recently got an '05 R1200GS and I'm looking to add auxiliary lights. However, I am a novice regarding the wiring on this bike. Do you have any details on how you wired these LED lights into the GS system, and how you control them? I want to do something very similar to your setup.
    Many thanks!

    Here you are.

    I've picked the control line from inside the headlight housing. Just grab it from the high beam line (56a) by using a posi tap branch. Drill a small hole into the housing cap and lead the line outside to the switch input line.
    Use a rubber seal to tighten the hole and preventing water to get into the housing.
    Use a relais with diode for preventing any harm to the sensitive electronics. I've used a BOSCH one but any other with diode will work as well.
    Be sure to connect relais' clamp 86 with positive line coming from switch not 85!

    I am interested in using these lights for high beams on my motorcycle(s). I am not too good with electrical installations though unless it is fairly simple. I was thinking about replacing my current headlight bulb with a xeon bulb and using it for low beam only. I would like to disconnect the headlight's high beam power lead and just run 2 wires off that to power the LED's. Then I would just run a ground to the LEDS. This way when I flip the switch to high beams the LEDS will light up, and when I flip it back to low beams they will shut off. Does this seem like an ok way to wire these lights? It seems like the simplist and most cost effective solution for an electrical noob :)

    Also, would I need another mount to mount these to my forks? I plan on mounting them to a Dorsoduro but I may also mount a 2nd pair to my Ninja 500 if i like them.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    It would work, but you could just connect the ground lead on the lights to the ground lead on the bulb harness.
    Just make sure you wire them properly and don't let the magic blue smoke out.

    As for mounting, it's up to you if you think whatever you can come up with will be sufficient.

    Ahh thanks, that sounds like a fairly easy procedure. I am soooo looking forward to having real high beams on my bike(s)! :)
