I Ride: 2015 Hypermotard
One of the things I enjoy about living in California, people blocking my lane isn't an issue as I just make my own. Definitely excited for the light though as I like to be as visible as possible when splitting.

Pretty much what I decided to do instead of Morimoto. I am looking at Morimoto for one of my RC-51s.

When I first put it in I had exactly the same experience. That's because the emitter isn't in the right position in the reflector - that's why I offered the tip.

The 20 gauge wire shim drops the low beam emitter into the right position, and proper height adjustment of the whole headlight module (a lot of lowering) makes it all work. Simply lowering the headlight module aim won't do the trick though.

This is not specific to the cyclops - it seems a common issue.

On back roads, my aux lights are ridiculous and plenty. But when riding in traffic you are really limited in your options. I upgraded to a brighter halogen but it's only slightly better. I may give this LED a shot. Thanks for the info about the shim.

Do you have any pictures of the LED bulb installed in the housing? Did you have to modify the housing? I have not taken mine apart yet but the pictures I have seen and the size of the cooling fins on the LED bulbs makes me wonder how well they fit...
