Low beams and high beams (labeled) were with the Long Range lights. The unlabeled shot was just the Sylvania Xtravision. I have ordered the LED bulbs though.

Maybe I'll show them to you when I roll through this summer.

They really look and feel nice, solid build and top notch finish.

Over the next two weeks I must try and find some time to mount them (should not be that hard) and figure out the best way to operate them through the KTM Euro light switch (will take some figuring out to how and where that switch routes 12V and ground).
I intend to set it up to switch the leds off/dimmed/100% and integrate them as much as possible with the existing wiring. So instead of just cutting off the connector, try and use the 'outputs' where the KTM accessory leds are supposed to connect and sse if I can find a connector to hook up the Skene at that position.

Will post my results for those interested!
Thanks..
I have had issues running all power threw the switched power sources. I highly recommend running the fused wire to the battery
Run the red Skene wires to the switched power line on the bike, If you don't need programing run the yellow Skene wire to the 12V switched power as well.
I think that 50% is really all the dimming a guy would need, it also makes a much easier install.

Thanks Jack
Im curious what needed to be shimmed on the Techmount mount for the 1190? is the bar smaller than 7/8?
Just a note on the fuse. we use large fuses due to vibration, not power draw, IME during racing situations, a 5 amp fuse will blow when off road riding. the 30 will still protect if you get a short, but will not prematurely fail due to vibration.
Thanks for the write up.

CBA191, so you got a set of the test LED Headlight "bulbs?" That was the LED bulbs in your 955 Tiger? If that is so, I will be preordering for my 800 late this week. Those shots were Amazing!!! the difference!!

They are 22 mm. 7/8 in is slightly larger. What I did is to use a piece of heat reflective/insulating tape, which is not very thick. Metal on one side and sticky fiber glass on the other. Used a piece on each side of the clamp. The clamps still bottomed out when tightened, but exerted enough extra force to resist twisting.

As to the fuse, I'm not racing and changed fuse mostly for glitches in building/handling/testing the harness. I will change it upwards if it does blow later. Thanks again for your help. Once I get my seat back I'll test/adjust the lights and try to get some night use pictures.

I've ordered a set of the bulbs, but those were the long range auxiliaries. I've ordered the LED headlights, but don't know if I'll need them now.

With any of the long Range series, I would see no real reason to do anything with the headlight.
Other than offer a bit of fill, the headlight becomes nearly useless.
Save your cash, buy tires and gas.

Even if you do not need the extra light output, its nice to save the amps for using other gear. That would be my main reason for going to LED headlight replacement. I looked at my 95 Tiger this weekend and I am not sure that I will have enough clearance in the back of the bulb housing and I hate to give up the rubber weather cover.

+1. You can run the LED headlight and the long range lights for less output than the stock halogen bulb alone in my case. I cant afford the long range lights right now because of too many other mandatory projects like tires I have to tend to but I got the LED headlight module pre ordered. Its gotta be better than what I have now.

I'll replace the halogens with the LEDs eventually, but money is tight. I have the auxiliaries already (haven't even ridden with them yet), but I need a chain and sprockets and a bunch of other stuff at the moment.

Sometimes owning a motorcycle feels like being that plate spinner on the old Ed Sullivan show - just when you get one spinning smoothly, another one is going wobbly and is about to fall
