My mail lady just texted me and told me my lamp/screen is waiting for me in my backyard. Can't wait to get home and check it out.

Thx Rade!

Just received mine and will make adjustments when it gets dark. Probably a stupid question, but which lamp should be my hi and which should be my low? I'm thinking lower lamp = low and upper lamp = hi?

Sound right?

Great job. We need more people like you.

I love the lights and the clear shield. Is there a way to make your assembly work with stock wind shield? Personally I'm not a big fan of the cf shield 's shape.

I'll bet Rade could do that. Maybe make an 'insert' or 'filler' part of carbon fiber that fills the void between the light assembly and the stock windscreen cutout.

Or a couple different cf windscreen options.

Rade seems like he can do anything he wants. Very talented!

I'd rather do away with cf and stick to the stock shield. It wound be great to have an insert that gives the flat look he has achieved, but with stock shield.

There isn't enough depth to house the lights and make a flat shield (it would stick out more beyond the stock screen, unless you have a screen like Rade's that's a bit more forward than the stock version.

Finally got mine installed and was able to ride around last night after dark. A huge improvement over the stock lighting. In combination with the Rigid LED bar it's going to make night riding much easier. Rade has done a great job with the kit as far as fit and ease of install. I didn't have any issues with lining up holes (no more than the stock screen anyway) and it really is a plug and play kit, just unplug the stock lighting and plug in the kit. All the lighting is pre-mounted on the bracket. I might suggest that Rade leave just a little more wire on the pig-tail so there is more room to get a hand in there to make the plug connection. If you want to have Angel Eyes only mode, you will need to modify your light switch wiring (I think there are some threads on how to do this) or go with a euro spec switch. With the non-euro switch you get low/high beam and the Angel Eyes together. Also, I fabricated a simple liner out of posterboard and black duct tape to fill the space between the stock dash and the Rade screen. Otherwise you get quite a bit of light shining up behind the dash. Still some buffeting at speeds over 60 - less than with the stock screen- but I think this is more to do with my dual sport helmet/visor than the screen. For longer or faster rides I'll wear a street helmet like I've done in the past.

Hopefully the Chinese manufactured lights in this kit will be durable. They seem to be pretty well made. For less than a third of the cost of the Touratech screen/lights, and the ease of installation, I would say this kit is definitely worth it.
