Default Clearwater K1600 LED Lights

Clearwater is in production on a number of new LED lighting options. In addition the mirror mounts are really in production.

As you may recall, the 3.73" diameter Krista LED lights offer 2,400 lumens each.

For comparison, a 35 watt HID bulb offers 2,250 lumens.





A K1600 forum group buy is forthcoming for this mirror mount LED set-up.

Hold on to your hats guys. There is a new LED light coming out very soon. One that will go right with Meese's riding style. The Erica LED light. At 3.6" diameter and a whopping 6,000 lumens output each, you can ride all night and feel like it is a bright sunny day. (In front of your K1600 anyway.)

Mount two of these to the mirrors and you will add over 5X the light offered by the headlight.

Our 55 watt high beam bulbs offer maybe 1,000 lumens each.

Look at the orange photo above. The mounts look so OEM that they are hard to notice.

One more new LED light to tease you with. The new Darla light.

As you may recall, the Glenda offers 800 lumens each. These new Darla LEDs offer 2,000 lumens each.

You will certainly be noticed by traffic with these.

Add two of these to your K1600 and the added light output will be almost double the headlight and bright lights added together.

Here is a Glenda and Krista size comparison:





This comparison is similar to the Darla and Erica size comparison as well.

http://www.webbikeworld.com/lights/c...ta-led-lights/

Conclusion:


"The new Clearwater Krista LED lights put out an amazing amount of light with a minimal amount of current draw from the motorcycle."



"The lights are beautifully made and the kit, the wiring harnesses and the hardware are of outstanding quality. The only issue may be the price of the kit, but the Krista lights are in an entirely different league than most of the other cheap LED light kits available."

Those Erica led lights look awesome.
RL where did you get this info? I can't find anything on the Clearwater website (yet).
