    To properly align the beam pattern with LED bulbs you my need to rotate the bulb. The goal is for the horizontal beam pattern to be such that the light moves only straight up and down when toggled between High and Low.

    I just installed a pair of the Beamtech's on my 900. I had to loosen the top 2 bolts holding the headlamp assembly in place to be able to wiggle the bulb into the socket. No modifying of any pieces to install them. Will give them a workout this weekend!

    Also ran a usb cord into the glove box and routed it up the left side of the handlebar to power the cell phone.

    I bought a set of headlight and foglight LEDs from Lamonster Garage several years ago.
    I'm very happy with them.

    I'm surprised no one else has suggested them first.

    It has been suggested. But we're talking Ryker's here, not Spyders.

    Can you be sure ???? The OP has photos of an RT in both his signature and his post ??
    And Lamont sells LEDs for Rykers as well.
    Geez. ANother one I have to put on the ignore list. This is getting real tiresome.

    You're putting someone on the ignore list for that?
    I suggest you step back and consider the real reason for having so many people on your ignore list.

    And for the record, Lamonster does sell LEDs for the ryker.

    You're probably right.
    There's been a spate of flame wars here recently.
    I may be too touchy.
    Still, I prefer to stick to the technical aspects when asked a technical question.
    People passing personal judgement outside of the "Off Topic" forum just gets my goat.

    It's really not that hard.
    If you really are THAT sensitive.......just stop coming here completely.
    P.S. Seeing you complaining about well meaning other users is getting real tiresome too.

    Take it easy everyone. No reason for ignoring anyone.....I do have an RT in my avatar/signature, but this is a Ryker Shop Talk section and topic about LEDs for my wife's Ryker. Its all good. I ordered LED's on Amazon and saved a bunch of money, and very happy with them in the Ryker

    Enjoy them while they last. When the burn out (and they most likely will) suggest going with the ones from Lamont. There is a reason they are more expensive with the power supplies in the lines to protect the LED elements from the electrical noise and voltages on the Ryker/Spyder. Most conventional LED replacements do not hold up well in this service.

    So, by this you're saying that Lamont makes his own LED bulbs...? Not likely. It is likely that he purchases them from someone and re-sells them....much like many other businesses do. That's fine by me, after all he's gotta make money. I didn't specify how much I spent, nor the brand that I bought. So why assume that I don't have the same bulbs that Lamont sells? Don't get me wrong, I love the stuff that Lamont designs and sells on his own, but I don't see him and Jacob and Joan sitting in the shop making LED bulbs.....It's all good....

    He has them made to spec for Spyders. They are custom manufactured for Lamonster Garage, not purchased and resold. The charging voltage on the Spyders is considerably higher than most automobiles, near 15 volts at times. Has caused a good deal of trouble for a number of LED products. Then there is the fan that does not hold up well in the Spyder installations.

    No, his are not the same as the ones you bought on Amazon and why I highly recommend fit for purpose units. They are not that much more than the quality generics.

    Ryker or Spyder, do you really believe one is easier on the lamps than the other? Use whatever you want. I was just recommending a high quality product that has a long and known track record in these bikes as they were designed for the specific application. If you hare happy with generics then fine. Some folks value their time, especially if they are paying a tech to install them.

    I guess if I had the cash to have someone else add accessories to my Ryker I guess I would have the cash for the better LED's. But I'm a frugal guy and would rather work on my own stuff than pay someone to do it. After all, that's how I justify the work shop full of tools to my wife. No way in hell would I pay someone to install headlights. After the sway bar install, I might pay for that labor next time. What a pain in the pootsky that was.
