Added Clearwater Darla LEDs to the Duke

Went to the guys at Clearwater and had these really cool LED lights added. Had them on my R1200RS too. With the amber covers you are sure to be seen during the day, and at night with the covers removed visibility is so much better than stock. When you go to high beams, the LEDs automatically change as well.

So they stay on as a secondary pair of front headlights? What happens to the back pair, and then also when you signal, I am guessing they blink as required?

Keep the rubber side down!

They are driving lights, not turn signals.

I would like to know how you wired the lights to work with the headlights high and low settings.
Wired into the headlight light switch ?
I have a set of Rigid Industries Ignite lights to fit and would like them to work with a high and low headlight settings if possible.

Rocky, do these help with the low beam in a turn? In other words, when leaning, the top of the low beam cuts off the visibility of the road ahead. Do these help with that or do they just make it brighter?

Only one thing will resolve that (OK two) - Adaptive headlights. Or additional low/fog beams at an angle operated by a banking sensor. I have JWSPEAKER adaptive on my Rocket. I have in the past made a set with a banking sensor - but you need multi sensor detection.

I have wondered how a 790 would look with twin 5&3/4 (Adaptive naturally) headlamps - Ok with just one.

You missed a third thing....the high beam! Only this isn't practical with oncoming traffic.
