    Finally got mine installed, and WOW! Damn nice light! After the quick shipping and great communication, I expected no less, and got it!

    "Germany is very dark at night. They have laws that limit the amount and brightness of street lights in order to have less of an impact on nature. This was my primary motivator to find a better light source. Your product is amazing. I wish I had brought a better camera to show comparison, but your product far "outshines" the stock. Thanks for what you do and keep up the good work,

    There's another DR650 / DRZ400 LED headlight option in the works. It puts out a large amount of light (low and high beam) but doesn't have any sort of upper cutoff pattern. Not suitable for on-road use.

    "Bought my JNS light for my DR650 from Adventure Bike Australia which arrived over Christmas. Absolutely the best add-on to my DR650 so far. Literally turns night into day without any hi-beam flash backs from approaching motorists. Stands out so much better than the OEM light during daylight as well. Bolts straight in. That shot of the light beam comparison is nothing compared to the difference it makes on a real road at night. I can thoroughly recommend this light."

    Not yet. I suspect the DR/DRZ kit will fit the "big-headlight" DR350, or be a very close fit that only requires a few minor changes in the mounting bracket design.

    Looks like a nice unit ! I'll keep this in mind for a solid headlight upgrade. Any Spring sales / promos coming up ?

    I'm looking at options for my DRZ headlight and this unit does look good.... but this 'optional' feature is just stupid. Why not just make them without it?

    A fellow DR rider (Jim) and I took the DR's out for a spin. I finally got the chance to compare the JNS led headlight to an Cyclops 3800 on pretty much identical bikes. I had to adjust the JNS to the lowest setting and I beleive it may need to be a tad lower.

    We had the DR's side by side and it was dark out. The Cyclops was anemic compared to the JNS, we couldn't believe how much more area the JNS light up vs the Cyclops. When Jim turned the high beam on, it put more light in the air than the ground.

    The JNS put a spot right down the center where it should be. The JNS blows the stock and Cyclops out of the water for putting the light where you need it.
    I hope to get one for the TW now. It's that much better than stock or the 3800.

    Could anyone post a photo of the mounting points of the dr650 headlight? I have a dr350, and i’m trying to figure out if it will fit my bike.

    Black is available. There's a drop down menu for choosing chrome or black.

    A customer will be test fitting on DR350 very soon. Stay tuned.
