Well on the recommendations of this thread I too have purchased and fitted the cyclops. They were a doddle to fit as I removed the light unit. Easy on a Mk11 explorer, they just needed adjusting down. Results impressive and I don't regret the cost one bit.
Cheers

Talking Everything you are hearing is true :)

Folks,

I tried some LED lamps a couple of years ago and then changed over to Sylvania zXe H4s right after my first rain pre sunrise. So I read on with skepticism as this thread rolled by. I'll let the pics do the talking...

I've tried a few different lighting setups with HID, higher output halogen and the Cyclops LED. Cyclops makes great products with very high output. If your bike fits them, try them. They are worth it.

When you mounted the Denali D4's, did you buy the separate $40-50 mount to go with them?

Wanted to give a quick update after a year of operation and more than 13K miles on them (Cyclops and D4s):

Everything still working and brother, are they working. This Friday night on my way to RI from NY it was dark, foggy, rainy and cold. I am so grateful for having installed the Cyclops, there are not enough words to describe how comfortable I am with them.

And the Denali D4s... Even with poor visibility conditions such as that, when the D4s are on there is nobody on I-95 north east corridor that didn't see me: approach, pass and move on whether they were driving a truck, an SUV or even if they were blind. I noticed that I do not fall in the "blind spot" category at night with the D4s on. I am pretty much a fast moving orb of light. And TEX being as tall as it is even truckers smile and wave at me when I pass them - some say my lights dry up the pavement from their intensity and they can follow the burn marks - Tigers lead the way!

The center bulbs are the T10 LEDs from Sylvania, forget what they are called but these are the 5W ones you can find at any auto store.

The bulbs on the handguards are the barkbuster white LEDs. These are wired to the running lights and pull power from the oem fog fixture under the tank on the right hand side. I also have the Amber flashers from barkbusters with the resistors.

The Denali' s are mounted using a centre mount on the underside of the beak. That cost me under 40$ I think. Tried a bunch of other stuff, but this worked out nice.
