Nice. What is the trick to get the female connectors off the stock blades? Don't see a release anywhere and don't want to break them.

Edit: apparently they are just brutally tight push-ons. Needlenose pliers did the trick.
Thanks from tourist

So I ordered a KTM knockoff headlight and some 3800lm H4 bulbs.

Everything looks a tiny little bit different than the OP's super useful pics. I can actually get the bulb to sit correctly if I simply twist and remove the original plastic bulb holder and kinda squeeze-fit the H4's metal frame in there. It holds inself in there pretty well. Not enough for riding & vibration but it does hang in there surprisingly well. I'm actually thinking to try epoxying the Cyclops H4 metal frame to the bulb-base holder in the reflector, so making the headlight permanently a Cyclops LED headlight, and using the inner locking mechanism on the Cyclops bulb to replace bulbs if/when needed.

Will add pics.
Thanks from jon andersson and ede

Stupid upside pics. It's the only place it does it.

You can get the 7000 lumen now which is what I run now along side some pushbike LED's.

Also to add, I didn't modify the housing to take the globe. It sits in there well.

Heheh I don't know if it's interesting but the reason for the upside-down images is that the camera has an ambiguous orientation (phone camera, right?). It dumps the image from the sensor into the JPEG encoder and marks the orientation from the orientation sensor as a flag in the JPEG metadata (this saves re-encoding of the image which saves time and preserves quality). The forum software reencodes the images and ignores the orientation flag

Cool!!

So it sits there like mine, and is finally secured in place by the fuzzy velcro straps? Am I understanding the pictures correctly?

Oh, and - I'm wondering about the best bulb placement - rotation and back/forth placement. I'm going to keep the little low-beam deflector shields in. I understand it that the flat part of the LED stick should be vertical? And that the little reflector cups should be on the bottom, causing the low beam light to be thrown UP out of the diodes and then bounce DOWN again from the reflector?

Re. back and forth placement: Are you happy with the spread as-is for driving on roads, Alan? i.e. Have you experimented with pushing the bulb back in the housing to place it closer to the "bottom"/innermost part of the reflector well?

That's it. No need for all this modding. Also the boot from the cheap mask works well. Yep just Velcro straps. Undo as you please and all converts back to as per OEM if needed.

Exellent. Now to find someone in posession of velcro straps and willing to sell on this island of mine I'll probably have to call China. (Where'd you get yours? What's the search term that yields these? )
