    I do (in car or bike). One of my pet peeves....rude, inconsiderate drivers using their high beams in city driving when there is absolutely NO need for them other than blinding me!

    Note, specific model for ST1300 available. I assume that means the tabs are in the proper location for ST's.
    is that per bulb or for a pair? Still, it's almost 2x the cost of eviteks....

    Cyclops price is each, so it's 4X the cost of Eviteks! Like the fact that all LED's are on during high beam (50 vs 25 watts) but I'll keep what I have. The only issue after riding with them for 7 months (~8k mi) is a noise from one or both fans when they are first turned on. Not the "wire hitting" sound addressed 10 pages ago; more like a bad bushing squeal in the fan bearings. It seems like the fans start slow and increase in speed as the bulb heats up. Sure would be a pity to fry a lamp because of a failed fan...

    Two types of doers: Those who are amazed if something works, and those who are amazed if it does not.

    the Cyclops is the same as the HIKARI h4 led or the MOSTPLUS h4 that use the XHP50 led. I have tried the bulb and it is brighter than the Evitek. but the larger emitter creates a taller beam pattern and puts too much light close in. it is great for off road where you are concentrating on what is close to you but at 75 mph on the open road I want too see far down the road. I have had two XHP50 bulbs fail early since they run so hot. I run one in my DRZ400 since it only has one bulb and I do not ride it often.

    Does the new F2 use the same adapter that is held in place by the bail? Basically is it a twist, remove, install and twist change out?

    Looking at the base in the pic I see three holes and it looks like there's a ball (in the middle one) that clicks into place. It would make sense to have a removable adapter so that the same bulb assembly could fit into various adapters for different applications.
    Don't tell me what I know. Tell me what I don't know.

    Ride safe, ride often.

    Yes the mounting ring comes off just like the other bulbs.
