HYPER- Lites

Anyone ever install Hyper Lites on their Strom?

Problems? Like or dislike?

I can't speak specifically to having them on a strom (I'm currently saving for one), but I've had them on my sv650 for about 6 months now, set up so that they blink for a few seconds, and then go solid.

I commute at all hours of the day and night in bay area traffic. Visibility here is very, very important to me, and these lights make a huge difference. I had a friend ride my bike while I followed him in a car so that I could see them for myself, and I can say that even during the day from 4 or 5 carlengths away they make a big difference in how noticeable the bike is. I've also noticed that people don't follow me nearly so closely once I flash them, which gives me a lot of peace of mind.

So, basically, they rock.

I have them on my DL1000 and my Burgman 650. I feel like they make a huge difference in my overall visability to other motorist. They seem to hold up very well. I have motolights on the frontside for the same reason.

+1 Hyper-Lites .... specifically the DUAL-FUNCTION version (running & brake) as well as the "universal" version NOT the V-Strom specific--I prefer the triangulation of lights for additional visibility.

FWIW, all bikes that enter my stable have Hyper-Lites + a headlight modulator. I personally wouldn't consider owning a bike w/o them.

I commute at all hours, also, and the hyperlites are one of the best investments I've made, probably the best safety mod. I had 2 near rear-ends before the hyperlites and none since installing them.

Here's a short video of the hyperlites on my bike:

What model hyper-lite are people buying for the DL650?

Universal mode or is there a specific one for the wee-strom?

Finally, does anybody know if they'll work with the Signal Dynamics brake light flasher/modulator?

04 Blue DL650 with some add-ons
and scratches...

Yeh I did a pretty comprehensive review, with both videos and pictures. Check it out here

https://stromtrooper.com/forum/viewto...161&highlight=

I really like them. Expensive yes, but less expensive that getting rear ended by a marginal idiot.

Read the review, but here are direct links to the videos
