Honestly, in the last 2-3 years I have have seen very little negative reviews on chinese / eBay sourced lighting, of all types; most is praise for the given price point. The quality now is not what it used to be.

But this (Cyclops) is purely a case of buyer beware and people not doing their homework, as well as having stagnant mindsets. The product is identical, but the source is not reputable which causes hesitance. It's the individuals choice but I know I work hard to keep as much money in my pocket as possible, especially in this hobby.

I've used http://pmxtec.com/Upgrade3.htm H7 conversions in a few KTM/Berg bikes with good results. You loose the high/low function but it's a cheap solution and about 3x as bright as stock with a better beam pattern IMO.

Oh stagnant mindsets? We can't all be hero's oxymoron.

Oxymoron,

This is the Cyclops H4 hi/lo 7000 lumen LED.

Can you find the globe that this is sold as a Chinese cheapy?

The only one i've tried that gave good beam pattern was an HID bulb. Tried 2-3 different led bulbs and the pattern was not very convincing.

I did buy some baja designs squadron also... light pattern and output is just impossible to replicate with the stock headlight.

They all need fabrication to be fitted properly anyway, the sheet metal adapters don't quite fit.

Sicass Racing sells a Halogen S2 bulb that is a direct replacement for the stock incadecent bulb. It does work allot better than stock as is cheap way to get a brighter light without hacking your headlight mount all up and adding lights.

Interesting how you call others out when you are the one putting yourself on the pedestal by making narrow minded insinuations by insult. Try all you like but you will not offend. We are only offended by someone of prominence.

Try again, your link only goes to the EBay main page.

The Chinese products are identical. The only issue with China products is the quality control used as per the cheap price the standards are not the same. Parts during production are the same and identical. Allot of products that are copied are just as good.
Of course buying the cheapest of the cheap will not be identical, but if it is a copy than it will be almost identical.

I haven't been able to find one identical to the Cyclops LED. Can someone locate one?
