Bought some new spot lights for my little beasty & I love them. ( LINKY ) They are so bright that when I was testing them, I accidentaly looked straight in to them & this was when it was still light out. Feckers nearly blinded me, wow these little beauties are BRIGHT! I like them so much I have just ordered a second pair, that will also be fitted on the same bike. These little beasties want just light up the abiss, they look bloody good as well. They draw 15-W but they put out the same as 125-W lights. Cree LEDs are currently the brightest LEDs in the world. I will put some pic's up when I fit them but for now I just have a few generic pictures.

The out-put pulled me towards them John, simply because a 100W bulb ain't legal but these are because they go under the radar & are more powerful. Really pleased with the look but to fit them on my Crash bars they need longer bolts so fitting has been held up a few days sadly. They will be great for extra vision on night trips but I want extra visibility in the day as well but can't bring myself to wear a High-Viz not at any price.

I had a set about 18months ago, wired via a switch through the spare live in the headlight bucket. worked well for about 6 months then crapped out! look good when you get them but are at the bottom end of made in china

Sorry I must differ with Justins opinion, mine are not bad quality, infact they are very good quality. The light they give out is exceptional as they are a Cree light in a cage and they were well made and sprayed. Not much can go wrong really, any product will have a small amount of faliures.
Can I just say on a side note, my hobby is electronics and a huge amount of the small electrical stuff we buy is made in Chenzen China and just re-stamped with a western company firms own label to give it the credence we want for it. I buy from China anything upto 2/3 times a week sometimes more and have been happy with 99% of what I have received. Why buy Chinese products from a European firm and pay for that privilege, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I know where you were coming from Justin, I had to tighten the bolts on mine as they were lose. However the money you can save by buying straight from China is crazy and when you consider a lot of the stuff we otherwise buy comes from there in the first place and is just rebranded at a massive mark up. You are always going to get the odd duff one, wherever it seems to come from.

Did you buy a connector to fit the aux light block or did you use individual ends etc ...has the switch proved reliable in all weathers etc ...
Just need a bit more light than the headlight provides for certain stretches of road ,for dear etc.

I have fitted mine along with switch etc , just need to wait for a dry dark night to adjust them properly ...they are mounted on the top curve of my narrow guard bars, I'm hoping the front wheel doesn't affect them causing shadow etc ..

You will be surprised how they will light up whatever area of the road you have them pointed at.

That's what I'm hoping for, want to aim them a good bit further than the headlight but not so its totally blinding for oncoming traffic. The roads I travel to work are pretty bad for Deer running out ,so anything that might give a seconds earning will help .

I used to ride a lot of country roads and had my nearside spot-light pointing nicely forward and a little more to the near-side side than is usual. Made me feel much safer, due to a wider night-time provisual vision.

The fittings are pretty rubbish, I replaced all of the bolts with my own ss bolts as they kept working loose ,fitted with thread lock , also I ended up re-soldering the wires to the circuit boards when one came loose and I had one constant light and one flashing .... All sorted now and they help at night but are also very good daytime running lights ...
