Like the headlamp! My mate just built an indian Scout custom flat tracker, and put somthing similar looking on the front, but his lamp is smaller, still LED but looks more like a security lamp. Where did you find it, looks well made?

Yes, it's a Chinese knock-off. I could only find the exact same version as mine for $135US with free shipping. That's equates to the exact same price I paid for mine in AUD, but I had to pay an extra $25 AUD shipping. I am OK with that, as I was able to use PayPal with eBay.

Went out for a night ride last night to try it out. Bedazzled a few bunnies.

No issues with cornering. The beam is quite a wide spread, and it is biased correctly for driving on the left. Better penetration than the stock unit, but it was shite anyway.

Not a good pic, but you get the gist.

Still need some tweaking for best angle.

Interesting to see your opinions on this light. I've been eye-balling Denali's new all LED 7" round replacement light ever since they announced it: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

But the $430 price tag has kept me from pulling the trigger. I wonder how much "better" or "more reliable" it'd be than the headlight you installed for the extra money?

It looks like enough light, but bad bundle spread. Blinding on small spot. What does it show when you are 10 meter from a wall?

What screen is that?

I have the original small MG screen, but want something more substantial until it gets warm.

@Kevin:

Ouch. That's expensive. I replaced mine more as a styling exercise. I hated the stock plastic chrome thing. It was rubbish any way. I rarely ride at night, but I sometimes leave home at sparrow's fart for a ride, and it can still be dark.

@ Paul:

I will take some pics 10m from a wall if you like? I might even use a real camera instead of my phone.

@ Birch:

It's the Guzzi 'large' screen. No longer available.

I am currently working for some time for my old employer (Medecins Sans Frontieres) in northern Greece.  To my disappointment I have not seen a single GRiSO, despite the proximity to Mandello.  

But during a short break, trying to escape for a few minutes the incredible chaos (Crying or Very sad) here, I came upon this "interesting" head light in the nearby village. Some people are more creative than others! Very Happy

Mark,

Any chance you can do a side-by-side comparo with your new headlight and another GRiSO with the stock light? Or at least give your thoughts on how much more light output this unit puts out? Especially in terms of illumination distance down the road compared to stock.

Also would be interested to know how you think it improves the daytime visibility of the bike to other traffic etc.

My work/social schedule has me riding home in the dark quite often and even with an upgraded sylvania ultra-whatever bulb in my stock headlight I'm still looking for more light output. Have considered some small LED spotlamps attached to my head guards, but I'd rather not spoil the lines of the GRiSO more than I have to!

No GRiSO's within cooee for me to do a comparo. I might be able to rig a test however.

I do think it improves daytime visibility, as the LED makes a very white light. I do think it's brighter than stock, but I'm only going by memory.

Took a couple of pics of the LED light against the wall at the local pub. Only had my iPhone, and was sitting on the bike to take them.

Low beam:

I think use of a better camera from further back would produce more detailed images. Riding through the 'burbs, this light is far brighter with more spread than the stock unit.

So is there another bucket alternative out there?  I'd like to mount one of these LEDs but at the same time would like a metal bucket to complete the swap.  My bike is getting rollered so I don't have anything to measure.

There is a generic on Ebay in metal:

I must've missed it earlier, Mark does that LED unit not fit in the stock bucket?

It will, but you'll need an adapter ring.

Adding the Speaker headlight to the Bellagio ring was relatively easy.
I bought 5 'W' clips from a vintage bike shop. $10.

do you have any photos of these W clips, and how you used them? or where i can get them? i've been trying to come up with a solution to mount a SPEAKER led since i got the bike!

some companies are coming out with aftermarket buckets to fit the speaker without modification also. but nothing available to the public yet
