The covers seem to be made very well and don't seem brittle like I imagined they may be. I think they will take quite a bit of abuse before they crack or break.
I haven't had a chance to check them out at night yet but I will report asap.
Very happy with the lights, covers, and service from Darryl and the company.
I had a light bracket crack and Darryl had one in the mail with the new lens covers the next day.
Thanks Darryl.

Thank you Chris. Occasionally something does go wrong with any product. We make sure you the customer is taken care of with the least impact as possible.
Out of thousands of lights sold and in use this is the first bracket failure, I have to think there was a casting flaw.
I appreciate your business.

Hi,

I'm interested in getting a set of the 2" 10W Round LED Next Generation Prime lights for my new 1190 R. I'm interested in daytime conspicuity more than than actual light output, but have a few questions:

1- Is the price for one or for a pair?
2- Would you recommend 20 or 40 degree for being seen?
3- Is the PWM integrated dimming circuit built into the lights or is it external, kind of like a Skene dimmer?
4- Does the PWM have a high beam bypass?
5- Do they come with any sort of wiring harness?
6- Do you have them in stock ready to ship?7- Is there a discount code I can use to order?

Could not find the answer to any of these questions on the web site:

Thanks, Dan

I got a set last year for my KTM 450 EXC. Call him for pricing. They do not come with a harness but I talked to Darryl and he set me up with a package deal for 2 lights and a harness he made (quality shiznit on the harness, perfect fit and function and nice heavy wires. I didn't have to modify anything). The price per light is the same as the long range lights so around 130 each I think. Get the 10 degree. Don't even consider the 20 or really not the 40. The 10 degree has a lot of fill light already with no hot spot. Very smooth spread of light. They will not shine past your high beams but will provide good fill, are very small and will work great for being seen and helping you see better. There is a working giff of all his lights a few pages back and you can see what the 10 degree looks like from that. He had them in stock when I ordered.

I think the integrated PWM is to protect the LED emitter from overheating, not dimming. You'll likely want to have an external device, such as the Skene, for dimming.

They have a seperate wire to hook the dimmer box to, that's it. No dimming capability unless you get the skene dimmer also.

Thanks and sorry for my absence.
Thanks for answering the questions Michigan400


It was really nice to get a good ride in. 1600 miles with almost 700 dirt, the snowline foiled our off road mile plan a bit.


The dimmer does require the use of the skene dimmer, the third wire in the circuit allows the Lights to retain constant voltage to the emitters and offer true pulse width modulation making the leds last longer than lights with two wire setups.

Thanks Dan looks like most of these got answered in my absence.
They are in stock, we always offer an ADV rider discount, code ADV

I however would recommend the long Range series for daytime use, why not have great night time visibility and daytime conspicuity?

The 10 degree lights are the way to go, add fitter's if you want a wide beam or amber lenses for conspicuity

Wiring problem

Okay, I just finished installing the lights with the Skene dimmer, and I get no light.
Following the Skene directions, as they were the only ones in the box, I wired the two black ground wires coming from the light harness to the two blue wires coming from the Skene box.
The two black wires from the Skene box were attached to the black ground wire from the switch, and then to the negative battery cable provided with the lights. The red Skene wire was connected to the red switch wire, as I wanted the switch to control the 12v+. The white Skene tapped into the high beam wire coming from the high/low switch on the bike.
I left the yellow unconnected, as I don't care about adjusting the low output on the fly.
So...what did I do wrong? I am certainly misunderstanding something here.

The Red Skene wire goes to switched power. This mean to a power source that comes on when the bike is switched on.

If you have it wired to a wire on a switch you are using, where does this switch get power? Does it come off a wire from the fusebox?

I just got my Long Range 10* with the Amber wide filters in the mail. Wow, this stuff looks very good.

I didn't see this mentioned before. The filters only work on the lights if they are mounted right side up or upside down. If they are mounted sideways the filters don't fit.
