    Cyclops LED headlight bulbs

    I am close to install the Cyclops LED headlight bulbs. I found a lot of threads talking about the installation. My question is for the low beam headlight. Those of you who have this lights installed, how often did you get flashed by oncoming traffic? Or, how sharp is the cut-off line of the bulb?

    Thanks!

    I had one installed in my G650GS (which used an H4 bulb) and now my F800GS (which uses an H7's). I haven't had any problems with either bike. The H4 bulbs have an actual shield in front of the low beam, so the cut off is wonderful. The H7's seem to work great without it...

    Better lighting is always interesting.
    I will move this to the Gear section later.
