    I just picked up a set of 4x via ebay.

    Looking forward to testing these out. Not sure if I will put these on the 640 or 950 yet.

    So after comparing 6 different LEDs in various light condition the results are in. In each photo the signal on the left is what we currently use, on the right is the test lite. I don't see a significant difference from one to the other but let me know what you think.

    The last photo is a Tuff Lite compared to a another popular "Flexible" aftermarket signal just for reference.

    Well, I have to first say...Thank You! Taking the time to do the comparison and spending the money in "development costs" is no small feat, especially when you already offer a terrific product.

    I agree, I don't see any that are noticeably brighter and even a few that are not as bright. I'm still happy with the current product.

    Agreed. I don't see a significant (any?) difference either.

    I think it all comes down to line of sight , If the light is straight on it's brighter than being off to the side some . I don't think there is much to be gained other than having the individual LED's to be pointed a few degrees off from each other . I could see it in several pictures , some the left seemed brighter while some the right but mostly no difference to be seen .

    Thanks for posting these comparisons. I'll be ordering 2 sets hopefully this week. :beer

    Ok, the brighter LEDs didn't work out as well as hoped or at all.......lol. It was a fail but at least we gave it a shot. Can't win if you don't try right?

    Moving on.... one of the most common questions I get it is: "Do you still offer the KTM connectors?". They answer WAS no. So as of tomorrow we will be offering TUFF LITES with KTM connectors to simplify your install!

    Thanks. CJD checkout is via PayPal only and while that's usually OK it isn't right now. ProCycle doesn't have a search and couldn't find them listed under Electrical, Lighting or under my bike.. WR250R.

    SICASS racing had them in stock and paid via credit card on their site.. plus the shipping. Ordered 2 sets for front and rear! Can't wait to get them. :D

    Now.. I need to find some stock Yamaha connectors for the wiring. :evil

    You don't have to have a Paypal account to pay through Paypal.

    Many Thanks! :wings

    I have a PayPal account and have since they opened. I simply didn't want to use it for this transaction as I stated and the CJD websites only payment option is PayPal. I placed an order via SICASS Racing for 2 sets and paid directly via a credit card on their site.. without PayPal.

    @mr. thumbs

    Do you have any Canadian supplier that has stock?
    Or better yet, that has the KTM wired models in stock?

    I'm done testing my first set. I'm going to convert all my bikes over now!

    I don't have a Canadian dealer yet. I'll reach out to TCM on Monday and see what we can do.

    Stay tuned.

    Never heard from anyone - ordered and received two pairs for myself in the meantime...cost me a fortune in shipping and customs duties by the time they reached me in the UK but I see this as a single investment in a life-long solution. They look very very well made...

    I would have bought these too long ago if it wasn’t for the hideous shipping+vat+import tax. If anyone has a work around, or a group buy or whatever solution, count me in for two pairs
