Update for those interested and waiting.

I'm currently waiting for a shipment of a single component that is back ordered. I can build kits about 95% of the way with what I have but they're telling me it could be as late as May 5th until I receive them. The plan is to have everything ready and then just finish the last 5% and ship them out.

So far the feedback about the kits I've received has been very positive. I am grateful to those of you who have provided detailed feedback and suggestions with design and instruction manual. If I am able to one day turn this into something more professional, the feedback has been extremely helpful for the learning process.

So what I am expecting within the next month is:
-6 new V2 light kits
-1 prototype V2 light kit at a reduced price TBD
-1 V1 light kit at a reduced price TBD

Start making suspension components. You'll be able to quit your day job (which I'm assuming is rocket propulsion engineer or something).

Lol not quite!

I'd like to quit the day job eventually though.

I Ride: 2015 Hypermotard
Got and installed my set this past weekend. The only hard thing about the install was doing it on the sidewalk on an increasingly gusty afternoon. Looking at the instructions on a cell phone isn't advised. That said, the kit is really well done and the install was relatively easy. I got impatient due to the wind so I will probably revisit the cable routing at a later time as the loops behind the fairing are pushing on the inner and outer fairings which results in a slight bulge.

I'll need to play around with aiming a bit more at night sometime this week but these things look great. I haven't had a night ride yet, but was getting into SF at dusk after a fun day of riding Sunday and at one point saw a left turner that might not have noticed me after a big SUV in front of them turned so I flashed my brights as I would to get attention and I immediately felt bad as I was the scene in front of me become daylight. I'm going to have to plan a night ride soon to get the full effect!

Man... brutal installing on the sidewalk! I feel your pain... having to work on m motorcycle in the parking lot at work, or bicycle in my dorm room.

Glad you're stoked on the lights. The ultimate test is out on the back roads at night - it's pretty awesome. I hope to go on some this summer when it's real pleasant at night.

Nice work Nate!
It's true, to really test them out and get the aiming right, you'll need to ride the Sunday Morning Ride route at night.

Start at Tam Junction, head out from there all the way to Stinson Beach. Now turn round and ride in reverse. Without corning side lights Deer become a REAL danger on that road at night. (Now add 10 Hooligans and it's crazy)

Good Aux Lights make all the difference. Just turn them left/right to show the way round tight corner. Also careful on all the roads there in West Marin at night. Deer a real danger. Lots on the roads at night now.

I'm looking forward to a night ride in the near future, ideally some night when the wind isn't crazy like it was yesterday! My only previous night time experience was getting caught after sunset on highway 3 headed toward Yreka (sure is hard to make good time when you know there are lots of animals just outside of your field of view) and then on the way back on a wet and foggy highway 1 from Legget to Ft Bragg. Actually being able to see well enough to carry some speed ought to be nice :-)

Finally had some time to install my lights.

Really nice job, kuksul08! With service loops to ensure there are no extreme angles and zip tying to frame, the wire lengths were all spot on.

My only problem was trying to find a longer battery terminal bolt. Couldn't get the bolt to engage with the lights, USB, battery tender and heated gear leads.

Will have to clean that up one of these days. Should've at least wired the USB to the gps connector behind the headlight.
