    Cyclops LED for 2010 R1200RT

    I just finished installing 3 new H7 lights on my 2010 R1200RT. Originally the HiBeam was not working, so I figured now would be a good time to replace all 3 with LED.

    I did the install by removing the entire headlight assembly rather that try and struggle reaching with one hand inside the respective access hole. The other reason I removed the headlight assembly was also to replace the disintegrating H7 sockets!

    The new H7 ceramic sockets, I purchased from www.candlepower.com. The H7 sockets used crimp terminals, but since I did not have the required crimping tool for right angle terminals, I ended up soldering the wires onto the crimp terminals.

    When it came to installing the LED's, the process required inserting the LED light into the metallic base and then twisting the light to lock the light onto the metallic base. I found this was very very difficult, so I applied a little bit of di-electric grease onto the bottom of the light shaft, the part that locks to the metallic base. The grease help make twisting the light into metallic base easier.

    Once the light was locked into the base, it was a matter of feeding the wiring and ballast box into the light housing and reinstalling the cover.

    Have not been able to take it for a ride yet, as I am missing parts for the windshield arms.
