    Mine arrived in about week and a half, installed ands works great, fires up every time, no issue. had to push the headlamp housing fully forward in the adjuster screw slots so ballast clears front of fork tubes.
    Supposed "4300K" HID bulb looks a tad blue-ish, in comparison to Halogen High beam, a few spurious yellow-gold-greenish artifacts, all in all an effective road illumination, sharp cut-off.

    Cheap, but very effective. 15w per, flood beam. $30 per the pair from ebay.

    going on the cheap!
    I added these led lights. 15W each (1500lm) they are brighter than the BMW adventure fog LED lights on my R1200GSW and only $75 each.
    I attached with a 0.50c clamp from homedepot and added a switch from trailtech for a few $. They are super tough as I've berried them in the drit a few times!!

    How do those mofos hook up to the bike? I mean, how do you attach them?

    I ran power from the battery to the switch to the lights. I hijacked an already extincting screw.

    I did either! It's a flickr thing - lets you scroll though your photostream. I had to delete the pictures of me doing naughty things!

    What is the consensus on powering up aux. lights? I see where guys have used the taillight power wire, I see where some have tied into the small bulb in the headlight housing and also have seen some using the GPS accessory connector at the battery to have ignition power as a trigger wire to a relay. I personally like the idea of using the accessory GPS connector. Any input on this?

    I used an AS7 Autoswitch triggered by the turn signal cancel button, to a relay, with switched power from a Fuzeblock for my Hella fog lights.

    I plan on using a relay w main power wired directly to battery. I am primarily looking for input on various "trigger" wire resources. Twisted Throttle sells an adapter for the headlight marker light, and I have seen guys using the GPS accessory adapter at the battery, and also tapping into the taillight power wire. I think the easiest source of this switched power is the GPS connector at the battery using a dealer purchased connector. I am a little hinky about screwing w the electronics, s/a tapping into wire inline etc. due it being under warranty and the mystery, to me, of a canbus system. Thanks!

    Light bar is a 530 Penetrator, lower aux lights, Cyclops Long Range, both 10 degrre for long throw. Headlights are the Cyclops Long Range Extremes running a Skene dimmer, daytime use will be with the yellow covers, one with the 20 degree pattern. Night time I will run one clear 20 degree lens cover and one open at %50. All are LED. Best setup I have ever seen, let alone used. Fill, distance, and perimeter lighting all covered. Conspicuity during the daylight, and clean light everywhere.

    Words fail me mate, that's an awesome setup. I was just reading through your build thread for this - great work.

    It looks fantastic as well as being practical.

    :D Thanks!! Last year on the COBDR I had "enough", but I wanted more. Suspension took priority but seeing as I have that all sorted I finished off the lights.:deal

    Pretty sure you got room for at least 4 more quad LED lights.

    I'm not quite sure you have the watts to do it though! :clap

    PS: yeah, kinda jealous. :thumb

    This is the wiring setup with the new lights, hyper light brake lights, power-let outlet and a SAE "Y" setup for voltage meter and usb outlet for charging stuff.

    Wires running out to the right side. You can see that I have a bundle of wires wrapped up there for the led signals too.

    I would say that I am satisfied with how bright they are!

    Just installed them and I am really impressed with how bright and how much light they put out! I used the 25 degree flood lens since I was looking to enhance my overall road and trail side view. they are small and light enough to mount directly to the plastic radiator shroud and take up no space, the loom was harder to fit then the lights!
