I'm using Clearwater Krista lights, same idea. Yellow lenses are the ticket for being seen. The world is awash with white lights, but the yellow ones really stand out (think tow trucks and other emergency vehicles).

On my 2019 RT I have one set yellow and one set white. Stands out
On my 2010 RT, I had a Krista on one side yellow, and other side no yellow cover. The contrast made it stand out-more than once, folks asked me if one light was out. Clearwater lens make it easy to swap them out, while offering protection from a rock.

I have the Denali S4 under the mirrors, and added an amber flip down cover on the OEM aux lights. The folks I've ridden with all say the ambers are really noticeable, then even more when adding the S4. Also get the added bonus of being able to see better myself.

I like the flip down over the fogs idea. Do you have a close up of the flip down lens?

I have always run the "Odd Eye" scheme. Stems from my first new touring bike in 1974 and all I could find at a garage sale was a clear and an amber fog light. Been running it ever since, on my caliper mounted Moto Lights and my Denali's. I run amber on the road side and clear on the curb side.

I use a a pair of D2 2.0 with yellow lenses mounted under the mirrors running 'Spot' lights, but angled down. I've set them up so they run on a low setting during the day or if on dipped beam (and they're still plenty bright enough for day time use) but on full chat when on high beam. For me this works both ways, during they day they're bright & yellow that attract attention, at night and on dipped they don't blind, but lit up on full power they still light up a long way ahead and melt the tarmac directly in front, (and the yellow lenses make not real difference).

@bandera, That's the way to go. I replaced the stock lamps with Denali DR1s with selective yellow lenses and Denali D4s underneath the mirrors. Everything is hooked up through a CANSmart. Tap the highbeam switch a few times and the road turns into a discotheque.

I like this idea but don't think I've ever seen it on the road. Get any comments from drivers?

Here is the D4 light plot.


I use the true hybrid with yellow lens and it works well for me.

I have set up a set of yellow spot and flood. The spot on curb side(right) and a flood on the on on coming traffic side(left). I am seen and I get best of both. If you order the lenses from Denali I believe they send you a pair of spot and flood and I used one of each
