You have far more light than stock and should be able to get a really good pattern. I wouldn't think you would need anymore. Of course I'm happy to set you up with another light, but I dont want to see you spend more than you need to.
Mounting another below the current two might work?

On another note we set your bike up to operate with no switches other than stock, How did that all work out?
I'm pretty sure I ordered and have two 20 degrees. Bike works great with the harness wired directly to my H4! I only wish there was a way to make the passing flasher button work to highbeam also but like you mentioned that button keeps the low beam on while also activating the high beam.

Thats right you did go with the 20's. With a very custom wiring setup.
Since these are aux lights we never anticipated riders using them as a headlight system. I like it
You could set up a flash to pass by doing a bit of wiring and making the stock switch momentary off when its pushed via running power threw the switch when its on low.You would need a normally closed switch.
IMO probably not worth the effort. But It may be an option for you.
We are looking at other dimmers that may do more, Ill let you know if we find something that will flash the lights.

Great customer service!!

I have the helmet mounted hid light sold by Darryl. I had a nagging issue with the light suddenly going dark, then refiring. I called Darryl, he quickly diagnosed possible cause and had a replacement cord in the mail immediately. I was just about to pull my tank and dig into the electrics, Darryl convinced me to hold off.

Part arrived in a couple of days, plugged it in and shazaam, problem solved. Saved me a shit-load of time and frustration.

Nice to have a no hassle, after purchase support system like the one at Cyclops Motorsports!!

Thanks Darryl!!

Im glad the issue was the power cord.
Although we try our best, sometimes things do go south. Its Nice to hear that someone appreciates our commitment to the customer.

The only thing that's kept me from going with LEDs is the lack of throw. How do these light compare to something like the Future Vision FV-90s or the Hella FF50s for range?

Thats long been an issue with LED Aux lights, The Long Range LED's will outshine a scmr16 HID, To my knowledge the longest throw auxiliary HID available.
These are a game changer in LED technology. No other LED Auxiliary light compares in distance and throw. when you consider that these only draw 10 watts each, it really is very impressive.
I can"t comment on the future vision or Hella since I have not seen them in person.
One thing I can say is that they will last much longer and are the longest throw LEDs available at the current time.

Web site wish list:

Some of your product pages have dimensioned drawings (2" 10 watt Round LED Light Next Generation Prime (NXG)). These are nice for planning installations - especially if things are tight (although a few more dimensions on those drawings would be even better). Any chance of getting similar for the Penetrator Low Profile light bar, the Optimus Long Range, etc.? Knowing the installed size/clearances/brackets/etc. of each product would seem helpful. I may actually do a mock-up to see where I can squeeze one of your aux lights in.

Also, your site suggests performance (I think?) by spec'ing 1 lux @ 693 ft. for the Optimus Long Range LED while simply quoting lumens for the Penetrator & Next Generation. Switching criteria makes it difficult to get a sense of relative performance between products. Is there a way to standardize a performance rating? Referencing lux (One lux is equal to one lumen per square metre: 1 lx = 1 lm/m2) leads me to believe the 'spread' effects the lux at a specified distance? It seems knowing __ lux, @ __ distance, over __ cross sectional area would be the most complete or am I off base? Anyway, a consistent layman's standard would be helpful as well.

By the way, how do the Optimus Long Range compare to the Next Gen Primes? Size? Performance? Who's buying the Next Gen Primes and why?

There's 2 more for ya from a rider whose bike could use more lux/lumens at little additional electrical load (sounds like an LED sale, no?).

Thanks for the thoughts. I appreciate your input!
We are starting to work on a new site that should allow us to provide a bit more info and hopefully get our message across a bit better.

I am very aware of the fact that consumers are puzzled with info on lights. There is a ton of BS in the lighting industry today.
We are probably the only company telling riders that Lumens dont mean squat. Its all marketing BS. Not only do most companies outrageously inflate the lumen #s but what does lumens that tell you?
Its worthless information to the consumer.
What matters is how far and how wide a particular light beam might shine.
Lux is a true lighting measurement at a specific point.
Beam patterns will greatly affect lux measurements at a specific point.
A photometric chart is really required for a true comp. These cost big $
We have many available, with the new site we hope to make them available to the public.

The difference between the NXG Prime and Long Range are many.
They both have the same Thermal management protection and use the same emitter.
The NXG Prime is a 2" round light, Its a great compact unit,light weight, durable and provides a nice amount of light. Its also dimmable.
We sell that light to a lot of riders who want conspicuous lights that also preforms well for night riding. Also a lot of dirt bike riders who race 24hr events or trail riders like this product.
We supply Tesla Electric cars and a few other OEM's with this product.
The long range will provide light nearly twice the distance of the NXG LED with a bigger and wider beam pattern.
The difference is all in the optics. Optics will tell a consumer a lot, if they know what they are looking at. Look at the depth and size of the Long Range optic Far deeper than any other LED product available.
There is no other LED auxiliary light currently made that will outperform the Long Range LED in overall distance.
They also provide a decent amount of fill.

What else matters in an LED Light.. Thermal management and build quality set these lights apart from the any other reasonably priced light.
The saying "You get what you pay for" is never more true than in LED lighting.
The Long Range lights are the best value available in LED Aux lighting.


Sorry for the long winded response

Thanks for asking Mike.
Not yet. but it is in the plans. There will be a clear and amber cover.
The lenses are polycarbonate and extremely tough.

Dimension clarification...

So the Round Long Range Optimus are listed as 3.8" deep x 3.07" high with a 1" mounting depth.... Does this mean the O.D. of the round housing is about 2" and the bracket 'stands off' the 1" mounting depth? Is this light almost identical in size to the NXG in diameter and 'stand off' but 1.5" deeper?

Thanks,

You brought something to my attention. the light dia. is 3.5" on the round, that has been corrected on the site.
Mounting depth is the min distance that the light needs for clearance to the rear from the mounting post.
The trunnion bracket slides up and down significantly, about 1 inch, this allows for adjustment in light height. It will lower to very near the 3.5" total installed height.
You can see the slide provision in the photos above. both round and square lights have these slots in the mount.
I'm working on getting some line drawings with dims for the round light.
