Ridiculously bright, the two make the same output as a BD Squadron with Combo lenses + I have my HID conversion lamp. Being a pretty focused/flat beam, the HID does seem have a bit of an advantage in getting more lumens downrange when tipped up, the LED's with combo lenses fill in the rest perfectly.
I will probably black out the top of my fender to reduce the glare off the white plastic that is more obvious when standing, that reflection was there before from the HID, but with the LED's it's a necessity while riding trails at night. Black Gaffers tape should do the trick.
I mounted mine on the stock turn signal mount and have since went to HDB LED integrated signals, now that I'm running BD's there's no looking back!


Here's a few comparison photos shot full manual with my camera to control the exposure, what you see is what it is.









The closest thing I have to the stock Husaberg headlight, a stock headlight on a CRF250L which might be a tad bit brighter than the OEM Husa/KTM headlight, but not much if I remember correctly, low beam.





CFR250L high beam










My Husaberg's 55w HID headlight only.











Both Baja Designs SII LED Combo Lights only







HID and Baja Design lights





































Looks awesome! Thanks for sharing the night photos with all the guys. Do you mind if we use the pictures on our facebook page?

Thanks

Thanks baja designs

I just wanted to thank Mike over at BD for going back and giving me the ADV discount after I placed my order on the second. While reading through this rather lengthy post I placed an order not knowing of the ADV discount. No hassle he just adjusted the order pricing. That is good customer service.

Ok, so I'm lazy. This is cut and pasted from another thread. It's my night ride from the other night:

Well here are some pics of the Squadron. Pictures do no justice. This light is freaking amazing! When used with the Double Strykr helmet light it blazes the trail.

Squadron



Squadron and Double Strykr compared to a halogen on DRZ




Single track Squadron

Random pics




And lets not forget my close call with a tree next to the side of the mountain!


Keep in mind it was a cloud cover and pitch black the other night. Another thing to remember is proper aiming of the Squadron is the key. I had a hell of a time getting it to aim just right.

To make it easier for the next guy here is what you do: install the light with the two bottom bolts removed. Tilt at your liking. Mine is setup the old school way. Took a measurement from ground to center of light. Go against a wall, make a mark 2" lower than your first measurement, bring the lamp back 17 feet or so from the wall. Top of beam "circle" should be just below, even or higher than the mark on the wall. Test ride and adjust to your preference.


I actually trimmed back the mask "ears" and got the lamp closer with plenty of clearance from wires etc:







Don't laugh too hard about the bags. I have a bag everywhere I could fit one including a 6 liter "tree hugger" collapsible fuel cell. My Beta is a fully self contained adventure bike.
