dimmer instructions

I hope the new instructions have been a help for everyone. based on the lack of call in install questions, I would say that the new instructions are working well.

The dimmer now being shipped with all dimmable harnesses is an adjustable dimmer that ranges from 40% to 100%
set the dimmer control to the desired out put, then use the multi function handle bar switch or your factory light switches to control it. (non BMW)

I run the original Long range on my bike, Still the longest throw lights available in a small package and IMO the best buy in LED lighting today.. But,If you can deal with the 4.5 dia size the 25 watt Long Range Extreme lights are amazing.
The Long Range Extreme is available now, we are just waiting on the new website to start really marketing them. Pricing is 465.00 a set
Polycarbonate covers in amber, clear or Red are 35.00 a set.

Use with CAN-BUS system

Hi,

I am in the market for a set of driving lights and am very interested in the long range led lights in the round format. I will be mounting these on a '12 R1200GS. Will there be any compatibility issues with the CAN-BUS system?

Thank You.
No issues with the Canbus. Lots long Range lights are on GS 1200's. You can run the lights directly to your battery or use a fuse block

sneek peak New LED Race light

So whats better than a 8" HID?
A set of long Range extremes in a 6061 t6 Alu frame.
This is a prototype we just finished. production should be complete in a week or so.
The lights are rugged, dimmable and offer no hot spots or sharp edges.
Overall weight is less than a single 8" HID
Covers are available in Amber,Red or Clear
Last night I ran this light at over 110 mph on a gravel road, I never came close to outrunning the setup.

Light switch for non dimmable kits

Starting today all standard (non dimmable) harnesses will include a handle bar mounted switch.
Another example of a complete kit and Cyclops going the extra mile to provide you everything you need in one kit.

The best deal in Aux LED lighting just got better!

your advise please

Riding a KTM SMT 990. Have a D2S projector with 35W bi Xenon as headlight.
This one gives a nice light bundle up till approx 30-40meters in distance. High beam does not add much. I might consider a 50W replacement in the near future. Would guess this will add another 10-15 meters of reach.

Want some extra light for:

daylight riding: two lights create better visibility;
night time riding: much longer distance. At 120km/hour you do 33meters/sec. I want at least 3 seconds of visibility, which translates to 100meters range minimum.

The LR round version seem to fit. Would I need two 10 degrees (and perhaps change to 50W Xenon for extended intermediate distance), or one 10 and one 20 degree for optimal added lightning?

Thanks for asking.
The two 10 degree Long Range lights will far outshine any improvements you can do to the headlight, its really not even comparable.
Just two 10 degree long range lights will give you well over 200 meters of Many think the the 10 degrees are a narrow spot, They are not, they will cover the entire width of the road.
They also work great as daytime running lights.

So two 10 degree LRs is the best solution if I want extra light starting from 30 meters ahead till "far away"? This solution is better than a combination of a. single 10 and a single 20 degree LR. Is than the only advantage of the 20 degree LR that it also illuminates the sides of the road?

Just curious, what would be the working range of those 20 LRs?

IMO Yes although they will start showing on the roadway far closer then 30 meters.
The 20 degree lights are good to about 450 ft or so, still at the top of the class on distance.
The 20's will offer a larger field of view, but not shine out as far as the 10's. So yes the 20's will shine more light to the sides of the bike.
I am very happy with only 10's on my bike.
I also haven't heard from anyone that was not happy with either beam pattern or combination of beams.
