The filters will be available in clear spot and wide beam as well as Amber spot and wide beam

The wide beam creates a nice upper cutoff and a great wide path. It is not a flood.

They will work best on the 10 degree lights. I don't recommend them for the 20 degree.

The filters Pop on and off in seconds with no tools required.

Now get truly tunable Lights for any application.

Run one wide beam filter and one spot for one of the best lighting combos available.

pricing will be 19.95 each

available mid next week.
Are these filters for the Long Range Optimus or for the Long Range Extreme?

The Long Range Optimus. We have always had the filters for the Extreme. Its the direction that quality LED products will go in the future.
These make a huge and drastic change in the light pattern

I have 2 20 degree lights. Is there anyway of me being able to change the lens to get the 10 degree beam so I can use these filters?

Why do you not recommend the filters for the 20 degree beam? Does it cut the distance too much?

Cool2 Thanks

Ordered a set of the long range lights on Tuesday and they were in my hands by Thursday. Thanks Darryl.

They look great. I can't wait to mount them up on the old GSX.

In the Long Range line the reflector gives the light its beam pattern, the lens is the same on 10 or 20 degree lights.

Its not that the filters will not work on the 20 degree, its more of an issue of what is optimum.
With the 10 degree lights you get the best there is to offer, Unsurpassed distance and with the new wide beam filters a true upper cutoff and nice wide beam pattern, something that other than the exception of the Long Range Extreme has been lacking in any performance AUX light to date.

I really like my lights, but had a hard time figuring out where to put them. I didn't want the extra unspring wieght on my front wheel but also did not want to drill holes in my fairing. Here is the perfect solution for me! However, if you go this route be really careful when tightening the mirror mount bolts - the bolt goes into a brass socket that is inserted into the plastic mirror mount stalk thingy. It is REALLY easy to strip, i.e. if you overtighten it the socket will break loose of the plastic and just spin as you try to tighten the bolt.

Definitely post up a pic of the filters when you get them!

No, they are "Jimmy Mounts". They work great and are very solid.

Heavyweights on Starvation Ridge...

Darryl,

Got my copy of ADVMoto/DS News in hand and I gotta say it's a great article by Jerry McMillan! A well balanced and intoxicating narrative about the event, with stunning pics to go along with it.

I'm envious.... GREAT job on you and your team, by the way. SALUTE!

Rally on,

Stovey

I want to order some amber spot filters for the Long Range Optimus 10 deg lights I have on my 1190R. Don't see them on the web site yet.

Thanks Stovey. We all had a blast and are patiently waiting for this years race.
For those that haven't seen it, please check out or video from the race.
