Hey, has anyone out there ever used Saeng "NightCutters" auxiliary lights?
I was just looking through a magazine and saw an ad for them. If the LT needs one thing, it's more light! I have considered PIAAs and Motolights but saw these and wondered how they might compare.

very few things will compare to hid, if you dont have them then invest in a set, worth every penny.

That's pretty funny about gathering/harvesting Ginseng. I've tried it here in NC mountains. I have considered HID lighting but for now I'd like to try some aux lights to send out some more daytime visibility. Looking for that triangle of light to grab the attention of the 4 wheel crowd. I have seen some cheaper alternatives to PIAAs and Motolights, Not so sure of the reliability however. Also not so sure of myself when it comes to installation.

Maybe if I gather some Ginseng and make a strong brew, drivers will just "notice" me quicker!

Well, grab some lights and head on over to our little tech session for help on the install - or at least see some other setups and ask questions. I use Wally World lights, mostly for ident.

Otherwise I use some Saeng products and they are first rate.

I had NightCutters

Mounted on my R1200CL And was very pleased with the increased ability to catch the Attack deer in Central new York. They provide the same help on my LT. Just last evening on my way to work I was able to locate 5 deer with the Aux lights that I would have most likely missed without them. One is a Fog version (right side) the other is the driving version.
I use the NightCutters at night, and the PIAA high intensity LED lights in the daylight. The different wave light of the LED seems to really get others attention, but not irritating.

Saeng offers a wiring harness that has it all, The PIAA's I installed to a switch set. The rear is a fog light from PIAA

Thanks Toby, I found your pics last night and was very impressed. Your set up is the first I've seen with the "new" LEDs from PIAA. I've always thought LEDs would get better and apparently they have. Yours actually look like they would cast a lot of light, even at night. How did you mount them? Did you have to cut into the mirror housing? I road through Wyoming last summer, at night, and swore that as soon as I could afford to I would get some aux. lighting. The Elk and Pronghorns were literally standing in the freeway in groups of 4 or 5. It was the most scared I've ever been on a motorcycle.

I used the BMR

Long bar purchased from Raffy at http://motogear4you.com/index.html They are located in the BMR product section. And there is a longer version that is not displayed

No need to modify the mirrors at all. they mount using the two lower mirror posts. took all of two min to do both sides
