Twin rider, it's a set of hella 500 driving beam housing, with a 55w 4300k hid system in it. The hella housings love hid. As you can see, the setup works quite well.

Thanks, $66 a pair is a bargain.

you then have to get HID installed in them.

plus at 6", way to big for a motorcycle, thats why these Long Range from Cyclops are so interesting...

bollocks. due to the shape of my crash bars I cannot get the lights aimed in enough.

they seem pretty bright. In the garage during the day. no rear wheel for a week now so I can't wheel it outside for a looksee yet

anyone else mount to a 950/990 with high crash bars?

for reference

can you mount them under the headlight somehow? I have seen some mounted there before.

here is a crappy pic. the light on the left I just turned the pivot mount backwards which helped a little but still pointing out. as you can see, with the high fender there is no option to mount under the headlight.
may end up having to grind the mounts some.

What if you flip it unpside down? Mount, Light or both.
Whats hitting the light mount to the bar mount?

upside down gets whacked by the fender.
when the crash bar mount is on, the light mount doesnt have the arc i need. There is a few degrees of adjustability but not enough for the bend of the bars.

If mounted sideways it will give me the adjustability I need in both axis, I think. I just dont like it sitting out that far

Yep. Still protected by the crash bar and able to adjust. I like the round lights. Will be the versions I buy.

COBDR proven

So, just returned from the COBDR, at the end of the 4th leg it was as dark as it can be and we didn't want to stay in a stanky hotel. We headed up and onto leg 5, 630 and LR10s leading the way. Road was rutted and washed out but thanks to these lights didn't slow us down. We were doing 35-40 and scouting for a flat spot to pitch the tents the whole time. Buddy behind me had a set of LED aux lights which in comparison were pale and ineffective. I hooked the right light out to the right abit and after 300+ (for the day) miles we were quite happy to get some food and shut eye.
I am comfortable saying these lights allowed us to push on and there is not another light on the market currently that I will use. My quandry is what to do with my Rigid Duallys? I reckon I can put em on the lawn mower

Thanks Daryl, awesome lights and the best of customer service, you have earned my loyalty kind sir
