cycle gadgets

2 questions guys. I ordered the fork mounts for my PIAAs but received two sets, not just two brackets. Anybody have experience with these guys and their return system? Or should I offer them up here?

Also, has anyone used these Martin mounts and have any tips for me?

thanks gang

i've got 'em on my bike. just follow the instructions. it's pretty straight ahead, no surprises. the PIAAs are awesome- 1100X?
cycle gadgets are easy folks to work with. give 'em a call.

If there are no takers on these suckers they're going back Monday. Going once, going twice . . .

Hey, if you received 2 sets and were only charged for 1, do the right thing and send the other set back. Cycle Gadgets are really good people and I'm sure they have as hard a time staying in business as anyone else. Don't take advantage.

Im with ctwise. Seems like the buisness that deal with BMW folk go above and beyond to help up out based on the integrity the riding community has built. If your going to sell beacuse you were charged, whats the price for them??

I've used their mounts for 2 years now...just remember to loctite everything with blue loctite, and hope you don't need a replacement bulb, took me 4 months to get mine...was'nt cycle gadgets or CBT's fault though, PIAA was way behind on the manufacturing end of things...

For the cost would ya say that the PIAA's and the mounts are better than the motolights? I had a set of PIAA 919's (i think thats the #) and the quality was outstanding.

i had motolights on K11, & now PIAA 1100X on the S. PIAA are better made, throw lots more light. Motos give a "fill-in" that is between hi & lo beam and help with visibility to other vehicles. the PIAAs augment hi beam so that you can actually SEE, and are much brighter to other vehicles. add in a PIAA 55W=85W low beam, and night vision becomes vasttly improved over stock. not HID level, but quite sweet. go for the PIAAs, you won't be sorry.

Hold on there guys

I ordered two brackets and received two sets. I also paid for two sets. Yes I messed up the order but I'm not ripping anyone off.
