I installed a custom dynamics pro beam premium adaptive LED headlamp. First ride impression was very good. Lights up the inside of turns very well and does not require significant lean angles to activate the adaptive feature. Will update and include pictures if I can post them.

The “adaptive” feature should be standard on all motorcycle headlights. I remember talking with a buddy many years ago about how bike headlights should stay level when the machine leans. This basically does the same thing. I’ve been running the JW Speaker version for a few years now. The low beam and high beam are just ok but those little side lights are the bee’s knees. I even contacted the manufacturer to see if the 7” light was any brighter after noticing there is one more “turning” light on each side and one more glass reflector(?) in the middle but the output numbers are actually slightly less on the bigger light. One thing that I have noticed in foggy conditions is the shape of the reflector(?) on low beam sends light straight up which bounces off the fog right in front or your face which makes it more difficult to see. I have a bezel with an eyebrow that I’m going to put back on and see if it helps.

I like the fact that the low beam stays on when you flip to the high beam.

Roy et al,

Just sit tight. I guarantee there'll be a Chinese knockoff of these in a year or two which will do the adaptive stuff for way, way less $. I bought a Daymaker knockoff from a crowd called Eagle Lighting about 5 years ago for around $70 AUD shipped when a true HD Daymaker was something like $350 AUD at the local HD dealer. Has worked great since. I'm sure the same principle will apply. Beta testers and early adopters pay through the nose. $549 USD is close to $900 AUD. Utterly ridiculous. Just hang about, you'll see.

Ytman, lets see more pics of your shroud for the oil cooler. I believe I've seen it in the past, but would like more details.

Do you have another pic of the headlight bezel from the front? It looks great from the side, I've never seen an XR1200 with one. Thanks!
There’s a couple of pics in here
