I think these are the LED lights integrated into the Voodoo fairing from Britania Composites (http://www.britanniacomposites.com/i...enu/voodoomenu)

There's a couple of threads discussing the fairing, which also talk about how great the lighting set up is. Check out the last page or 2 of the "Windscreen Disgust" thread for links

Baja Designs builds good stuff.
It's run by a bunch of really good guys.
I'd recommend them.

I put a pair on my XRR. Awesome lights! Excellent quality.

Without the diffusers they were too bright for use in traffic, even in bright daylight.

I picked up some cheap Chinese Cree XM-L2 lights (1000 and 3000 lumens), so if you're hurting for cash, they're available. I also have the BajaDesigns Squadron sets on my KTMs.

For the aux lights, get the Steve Keene (sp?) intelligent light controller. You can run the lights on at the default 20%, or change the brightness. I do like the IQ-175A, with the A being alert as I do spend time in traffic and it creates a noticeable pattern if you need it.

Why not have 3!? More is better right
lol
Brightest LED I have ever used. Hard to go back to something else now.
I have used the construction LED lights and the vibration usually breaks the internals. Not designed for it unlike the Squadrons or Rigid lights. (I have taken both apart so see). Definitely more spendy.

Excellent Choice, super bright. I have the Britannia Composites fairing with the Squadron LED high beam and it really puts out a ton of light. The Rigids are pretty awesome too, though not as bright. I like that the Rigids have snap on/off color filters, like Amber....they really help you stick out in traffic

I guess you need a lot of light.

Too much light I found is actually has the reverse effect in a dark road. It will make objects too bright that kills your night vision. But that's just me.

Where did you get the bracket for the Onyx?

I removed the original screen and made an aluminum bracket for it

Here is another view in the attachment below. Bolts into the factory head with factor bolts, and with the lights on. I'd like to get a wider pic to show the difference.
I have 3 choices of lights. Low, low+1 Squadron, Everything..
Signs on the highway have flash back....opt for Low+ high.... but in cornering with the bike is leaning and all is on, I have no black spots in the corners. Full sight. Offroad, everything is light absorbent, dirt, trees, I like everything on. Single track where everything is close and up front, too much to have everything on.

I am running the Baja Designs SII's with Baja Designs faring mounts. Love the lights they are a HUGE improvement over the stock headlight.

I imagine the Squadrons are ridiculously bright since they are basically doubling the number of lamps over the SII

I wired the lamps directly to the battery and turn them on w the suppplied switch. That process took repinning a few wires pretty easy to do.

Having them on a separate loop keeps it simple but you gotta remember to switch them off when you park during the daytime.

I put a set of Squadrons on my 1190R. They are awesome. Just be aware these are made for off-road racing. Expect a ticket if you use them regularly on the asphalt. I have mine aimed fairly high for back road ridding at night.

We do offer a dimmer box to lower the power of our lights to 50%. This will prevent blinding oncoming traffic, and if used correctly prevent any run ins with the law. Let me know if you need any more information, thanks - Christian
