Denali

Denali kit from Twis. Throt. First night time test tonight and WOW I love these lights. Will come in handy spotting bambis' here in the PA woods.
Pretty easy install once you get the correct mount for the bike.

Just to follow up here, and from our email exchanges, Twalcom is now in the process of producing English language instructions for all products, including these lights. (in fact, I have a English PDF for these now) They just started selling into North America in June, and we were their first English language market. I'm actually reviewing the instructions for each product with them to ensure we don't have any Engrish. :)

The bracket has also been updated for future shipments based on your feedback.
Where can I get my hands on a set of English instructions? I am going to install the lights tomorrow. The Italian instructions have me scratching my head.

I saw the photo with the damaged reflector. Can be caused by 3 things. Overheating, oxygen entering and oxidizing a bare aluminum reflector or UV degradation.

I use a 35 watt Philips D2 Xenon HID lamp and all Philips lamps have a doped quartz sleeve around the Arc tube. The Doped quartz blocks the UV ( ultraviolet ) from damaging the headlight.

I also made sure my reflector was airtight by sealing the wire hole but most aluminized coatings today are sealed with a laqueur type material.

The standard lamp is an H7 55 watt so my 35 watt will not overheat it (watts = heat)

Here is my reflector after 8k miles with the Philips HID lamp. No damage whatsoever

LED's

Gadget Boy asked me to post up some pics of the LED set-up I've got on my F800GS.

Here's how they're mounted:









And what they look like:









Not too distracting by day but certainly visible by night. They've also proven to be pretty tough so far.

Here is another mounting spot to consider. Well out of harms way under here, plus it gives you a bigger light pattern to approaching cagers.

Another shot. No brackets required. The plastic seems plenty strong enough. I used a big washer under the nut.

Just back from 2,200 miles in WVA and VA.

Guess what failed

That's right!

Will see what TT has to say, lights not yet a year old and already replaced once. Such a great idea but they need to work.

Looking forward to cutting them off my bike again.

Great light output / amp and nice install with internal ballast. You might consider ordering 4 lights and mounting with quick connects. That way you'll be able to run one pair whilst the other is being repaired.

Yes, I'm a little bitter.

Search on Trail Tech SCMR 16's for other folks' experiences. Make sure you read the complete post. Many start very positive and end up in failure.

Thanks for posting your pictures. I installed my lights in this same way based on your post and it works out great. Lights are nicely protected and they are far enough away from the headlight to not make it redundant.

The Denalis are so bright, it is like looking at an arc welder!

Here are the Denali's installed and on in bright daylight. They work well in the trails lighting stuff up under the tree canopy.

The mounting location that edfetz used works very well.

I've been looking and looking for a post someone made showing some pics/video of the BMW LED turn signals on and off. I'm considering ordering them because they are plug and play. No cutting needed. Just unscrew and unplug the old ones, then plug in and screw down the new LED ones. So anyway, can anyone help me find that post? Or if you have the BMW LED turn signals installed, can you post some pics of them turned on and off. Or better yet, video? I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

Found an answer to my own question. Found a YouTube video of an R1200GS with a video comparison of the standard BMW incandescent turn signal and the BMW LED turn signal. Yeah, I know, it's on an R1200GS, but the F800GS and F650GS2 use the same ones.
Yup. I'm ordering.
