Hey all! I'm here with a parts announcement. :thumbsup: I installed a TrailTech Vapor on my Seca II last year, and yesterday was on the webpage looking for something and saw that they have a new product available. A 7" rugged LED headlight.

Here's the info: http://www.trailtech.net/7-inch-led-headlight

Image and text from that page (there's a YouTube video too, but the music is terrible :o ) :

I shot off an email to the chap at TrailTech who'd helped me a LOT with wiring up the Vapor, regarding price and general info. Here's what I got back:
Right now it is looking like the pricing going to be $325.95 but that is not set in stone yet.

This light is extremely tough. We have been doing testing on it for almost a year to make sure of this before releasing it for sale. I personally run one on my KLX300 and love it.
So there you have it. There's quite a handful of LED headlights out there, but most I've seen are bike-specific to newer models, or cheap eBay knockoffs. I thought this might be a good option for anyone shopping!

Thanks for sharing. $325 isn't a bad price for what you get. These would look awesome on a scrambler conversion.

You bet! I was watching chaseontwowheels' Wrecked Bike Rebuild series where he installed a Motodemic LED light on the Ducati, and it looks great but is quite expensive as I recall. (Checking the site now, $400 is the very low end with zero options... a lot of their stuff soars up to the $900+ range.) The $300 price point, especially if includes everything TrailTech mentions AND is that rugged, seems a lot more reasonable.

If you've not seen chase's stuff, or the WBR series (this is the first), it's pretty entertaining. He is **NOT** a good mechanic, but for me it's amusing because I thought **I** was bad!! :lolno: He did the light in episode 8.
