Denali D4 Flood Spot Hybrid LED Lighting Kit
Definitely recommend to buy
I installed these on my 13 F800GS. They GREATLY enhanced the distance that I can see at night, plus the sides of the road are nicely flooded with light for wildlife.

These are some bright lights!
I'm not totally certain these lights are legal, but they work great. In the day time, it looks like people can actually see me coming. However, at night, I am a little leery on having them on, as I am afraid I am blinding someone.
However, no one has "flashed" me yet. Also, when at a traffic light, or coming up behind a car, I do not see my lights shining in either their side mirrors or their rear view mirror. So, while bright, I am thinking that they are not at a level where they are shining directly on to a mirrored surface on the cars.
Installation was pretty straight forward. The F800 GS is pretty compact where the fake tank is, so there's not a lot of room for wiring. However, with the supplied zip ties, I was able to keep everything tidy.
I also removed additional wiring, by installing a Denali PowerHub2 unit. The Denali D4 wires are too big for the PowerHub2, however, all other electrical farkles are going through the PowerHub2, so that freed some space for me.

Super bright and good price. If they had the ability to control brightness, they would be the best in the market. Afraid to use as running lights because they are so bright and cannot be dimmed

Daylight at night time
I fitted these to my 2014 Super Tenere and just finished 6700 mile ride including the continental divide. These lights were superb, I had a few late night rides in the mountains on tight gravel roads and some 2-track and they provided security and comfort to continue without trying to find a campsite as a priority.
The spot and flood combination provides wide coverage and there is no issue with outdriving the lights. As with all LED's the white light provides clarity and in my opinion reduced fatigue and increased concentration span.
Driving at night on asphalt was not an issue and I also had the opportunity to use them in severe thunderstorm and they worked well making it easy to see "through" the rain without the normal glare issues.
One needs to manage the light carefully with oncoming traffic and I had a feeling they were blinding a few cars at quite a distance away....
It was also fun to bright back at some idiot truckers who seem to have fun with switching their brights on before they pass you.
Installation was easy and integration of the system to the main beam of the bike was simple and elegant. Still having the override switch to run with just the standard bike lights is useful in normal road conditions.
I had the bike down many times on my CD trip and the lights were berried in mud and even some impact with rocks, the robust bracketry and housing design ensured no damage to the lights or functionality and I was able to just bend the brackets back in place and get on with it. Will need to fill in some paint work on the brackets to stop them from rusting.
These are pricey!! But I would recommend them to anyone with a need to have wide coverage close as well as spotting the distance! It is one of those investments you will be happy you made when you get in a situation where you really need them!
