Cyclops LED headlight bulbs. 7000 lumens!

Hey everyone!

Just picked these up. Was originally going to just get the 3800 lumen but they were out at the time I ordered.

First off, cyclops is a great company to work with. Had some shipping problems that were entirely my fault and they fixed them immediately and had the bulbs out to me in less than a week.

To start, yes I paid $150 for headlight bulbs. Yes you do need two if you want to update both your headlights.





The ballast and extra parts were a bit bigger than I had originally imagined and seen in photos. When I started to install, I wasn't sure all that stuff would fit in the bucket. With the right squirming around of everything, they do go together. I did have to cut a bit of the rubber boot to make it wider to fit the bulbs fan but aside from that, no modification required. Plug and play.

Old low beam halogen.


Side by side color comparison


Look of the lights head on


And beam of new LED


With comparison shot of both together


As you guys can see, a much brighter, whiter, and more beam in the same type of pattern from the reflectors. Haven't had a chance to ride in the dark yet as it's not dark where I am and probably won't for a while as I'm in Minnesota and our spring is now some areas entire winter.

Just thought I'd share and say that for the moment, I'm extremely impressed with the company and the product.

Looks nice and bright, however in the pic one from last you refer to them as LED. Surely with "the ballast and extra parts " that should read HID

Any idea if these would fit in the 'legacy' (round) headlight cans? I tried an HID upgrade, which failed because they didn't fit AND trying to find a place for the ballasts turned into more trouble than it was worth.

These look excellent, did you happen to get a photo of what you had to cut out of the rubber boot?

They are a standard H4. I've been told that the round headlight buckets and reflectors are horrible for anything other than just halogens.

Crap. Knew I should've. It was simply the small seal part of the inside hole. Wasn't much. If you got the headlights and saw the boot, you'd figure it out. I just cut a bit and stretched it over the fan portion. Just make sure when you do that, that nothing is still covering part of the fan.

I had HID in my 2010 Street Triple (round headlights). I bought the slim/mc version, and put the ballasts inside the flyscreen. Tight as hell, but doable (with a little bit of patience and persistence).

(Did the same with my Speed Triple.)

This is awesome! I've never seen this brand of bulb before, but I like it! Great cutoff, and bright for sure.
