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.


Thank You! That 800 looks great!!

They are coming, basically we will start to offer the same non patented Chinese built lights that are sold threw other vendors here on ADV rider, However we will offer them at a reduced price and better warranty.
Our philosophy has always been to only offer the best preforming products available. Products that stand the test of time and offer superior performance.
Our marketing dept has been telling me for some time that we should not ignore the entry level market, so after much prodding and some recent events, we will be bringing on the CPS line soon.

Some creativity

I thought I would share this Photo of the Bike Porn made by fellow ADV member Earling.
He has done a great job creating a headlight system for the Gs800, Using his carbon Fiber skills and some ingenuity he came up with a great combo.
Using the Cyclops Long Range extreme 25 watt light paired with a Hella projector lens in HID, makes a really nice package.
Great Job Earling

Thanks - I think I'll just save up for a set of the Real Deal in the Long Range Optimus 10/20 Combo with the Skene Dimmer. Bike is an 08 DL650 - is install/wiring pretty straight-forward for the V-stroms?

Thank you. We have realized that many are interested in entry level lights, nothing wrong with that, but the price differential really is not all that much for the Long Range series.
In fact, I would argue that in the long run the LR series are less expensive.
The LR lights with the Skene dimmer are very easy to wire up.
One main power wire, usually to the battery, a trigger wire to the high beam circuit and a few grounds is about all that is required.
No switches necessary.

Here is an interesting write up of LED vrs HID
It is a little dated but has some good facts, I agree with most everything, other than the multi emitter lights still working when one fails, a good single emitter LED will provide more usable light with a smoother beam pattern.
IME when a multi emitter light fails its not the emitter, its the PCM or board that is the issue, taking out the entire light.
Plus a good LED should not fail.
Now with the move towards lights with real optics and replaceable filters, AKA the Long Range extreme and soon to be filters for the round LR series, one light can do many different jobs.

Have I got a deal for you

If you have been sitting on the fence and want a set of the most rugged, longest throw and reliable MC LED lights in the industry, now's your chance to get a nice bonus.
For a limited time we will throw in the new H4 3000 lumen Headlight bulb with the purchase of a set of Long Range lights.
http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=948701

This promo is good with the purchase of the Round or Square LR series as well as the potent Extreme long range light set.
You must purchase a set of two lights in any combo or wire harness configuration
The code is LED Headlight and can not be used with any other discounts..
The order must also be placed threw the cart system.

I rekon I need these. Do you have the combo 10/20 set up?
Did you install them yourself? If so how difficult was wiring. I have the identicle bike.
