Are those twin 25w or 50w on there? By the size I'm assuming 50's?

For other uses, see Patent pending (disambiguation).
The expressions "patent pending" (sometimes abbreviated by "pat. pend." or "pat. pending") or "patent applied for" refer to a warning that inventors are entitled to use in reference to their product or process once a patent application has been filed, but prior to the patent being issued or the application abandoned. The marking serves to notify potential infringers who would copy the invention that they may be liable for damages (including back-dated royalties), seizure, and injunction once a patent is issued.
Fraudulent use of the patent pending warning is prohibited by the law of many countries and inventors should be cautious when marking products or methods that may arguably not be covered by any pending patent application. In some jurisdictions, such as the United Kingdom, a warning notice should ideally mention the number of the pending application.[1]
Even the bold red font won't scare the knock off guys.

Take it as a compliment and don't let it bother you. It will happen regardless.

The light on my personal bike are the 50 watt single emitter LEDs, pretty impressive, although to be honest I would have preferred to use the 25's but they looked a bit small on the beast.

Thanks for everyone's patience.
I had a great time at the 100, but not a good race, flatted out after only 16 miles. the ride of shame is no fun.

Mounting brackets

Has anyone come up with or found a robust mount for these lights off the crash bars or upper fairing?
The typical ones I've got have the single little 6 or 8mm bolt holding the mounting tab to the bar clamp that just isn't enough. Mine have loosened up even after cleaning the threads with acetone and using red thread locking compound.

We use the beefiest crash bar mounts available from techmount. There are many copies of this mount out there. some are better than others.
Lock tightening the threads wont do much if anything, try locktightening the barrel that inserts into the mount, make sure to clean any manufacturing oil from these surfaces and allow that to dry.
That should take care of the issue.

Mine have not moved an inch in the about 30 days they have been on, but I am not using the stock mount either.

Just to be clear guy's, the mounts I have are NOT the ones from Cyclops, mine are a cheap copy and probably not the same alloy.

Now that's a rider with determination. After popping the front tire you proceeded 13 miles riding wheelie, and only let the front down so as not to hit Chet....... I tip my hat sir......

Thank you. You might be able to get replacement shafts from the manufacture, we have seen the barrels come loose on the techmounts, but a little locktight in the barrel area, takes care of that nicely

Trade up program reinstated for the Long Range Extreme

I guess since we are offering a 25 watt single emitter light and the other venders on this forum can not, that should tell you something.

We wont stoop to throwing out negative thoughts about other vendors on ADV rider.


Like always we are committed to you the rider, that shows threw with our impeccable customer service, quality products and fair pricing structure.

For a very limited time we are again offering a trade up program.

If you have had the misfortune of purchasing a product that just doesn't measure up, now is your chance to unload your weak lights and step up to quality products that offer superior lighting over any other LED in the market.
The 25 watt Long Range Extreme kit offers over 1200 ft of quality lighting
available with a wide angle euro beam filter
Polycarbonate lenses and hybrid construction
Life time warranty

fits on crash bar mounts

engineered in the USA, manufactured in Korea.. Patent pending

Backed by a 2 million $ product liability insurance policy


we are offering a 100.00 trade in allowance towards a set of long range Extreme LEDs, not available with any other offers or discounts.
These can be a set of LEDs from any manufacture, or salesman

you must ship the leds to us to use the credit.

If you want real world performance your at the right place.

If you want to be bullshitted, there's another thread on ADV rider you might be interested in.

The King



No Filters
The cones are at 100 ft intervals, the truck at 600 ft and the gate at approx. 950 ft, tree line well over 1100 ft


wide angle euro filters


Amber filters



We wont be doing this for long, If you want the best there is no substitute.

Thought I'd give a little feedback on my lights:

http://www.cyclopsadventuresports.co...ound_p_10.html

I've had them on for a bit now so I think I can give them an honest review.

One word, Friggin Awesome! Ok, two.

I have a lot of deer in my hood so I've always wanted something better than stock. The first night I rode with them, sure enough, those suicidal deer were out in force, I was able to see their eyes WAY WAY ahead up on the side of the road in the trees before I even got close to them. that right there makes them worth their weight in gold.

Since then i've used them a few times off road and it's all the difference in the world, I can ride way faster than normal now, just confidence inspiring.

I have the dimmer on them set to 20% while the low beams are on and it really does help with Visibility during the day, and just more fill at night. Hit the high beam and it's like sunshine in front of me.

Customer service has been really good, you can tell when you are dealing with someone that's passionate about the product, compared with someone that's just trying to make a quick buck at all costs. Darryl has been really patient with me when going through the process, I was on the fence about going with the optimus LED's or going with the cheaper smaller one. It's a leap of faith when you can only go by some pictures on a forum, but Darryl gave me the confidence I needed.

Quality wise, they are the real deal, nothing flimsy or even "Suspect" about them when you open the box, everything is top notch.

Instructions and ease of install, really straightforward, even with the dimmer, with the included relay, no need for a fuzeblock, which saves some coin.

Pictures below on a 13 800GS.
