It'll be interesting to hear how they are for seeing with, I have a pair of LED lights that are completely useless for seeing with but people often say that they are incredibly noticeable in traffic, I once pulled up at the side of another biker at the lights and he said he thought I was a Rozzer.

I'd like to fit a different pair of lights to actually see with at some point.

I bought some 3led 1500LM ones off ebay but with flat backs and they are on permanently as day lights but do provide good flood of near light at night

I got the little ones (600 lumen) and they are brilliant. They don't reach far but give a decent spread and as said before you WILL be noticed by other road users which is the important bit for me. I believe they do now 2400 lumen ones which should be even better. Just watch so you dont melt the tarmac. Stuart from this forum got 6!!! of them on his guzzi:thumbup:

Here is a pic of them. As I said they are the little ones

They don't reach all that far indeed, you need a decent reflector for that which these things just don't have, but they do put out a boatload of light in the short-to-medium distance.

Here's 2x 1500lm:

Yes the same as ive got but 900lm. Very good in the dark they give a 10-15 meter spread each side of the bike coupled with the main beam all i could ask for. Also in the daylight you can be seen a long way away.

Thumbs up from me :thumbup:

Quickie on these. Did you put any washers in or anything to help hold them in place? Mine connect via bolt that has a philips head on one end a 7mm nut on the other. There is a metal tube in the middle. Possibly because of where I fitted them they are difficult to tighten and one of mine keeps dropping. I was thinking of a couple of rubber washers. Or am I just being a woos and need to tighten them a big tighter?

Mine came with 7mm nuts on the inside to lock em off, but its real tight in there to get a spanner on em. Managed it and they seem tight enough. but a tube would be a better job.

Found a better 7mm ring spanner and managed to put three extra quarter turns on, which seems to have resolved it.

I was originally only able to hold the nut in place and tighten using the screwdriver. You get it tighter turning the nut.
