If the link does not work go to twistedthrottle.com and search for Denali M5. They sell the light and adapter as a kit now.

UPDATE

So I went with a much less expensive Amazon alternative bulb this time after a couple of years with the Cyclops and I must say I'm impressed. For only $35 Canadian, I thought why not give it a try.

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07BTTFN1S/

I've been using it for a couple of months and here are my impressions:

1) It has a narrower, wider throw pattern than the Cyclops. Creates a slightly thinner beam, but wide and very powerful. Bright!

2) The low beam is actually set at about high beam level. The high beam shoots off into the sky when you just install it normally. I like this, since I rode with my high beam on 100% of the time with the Cyclops. I don't care about oncoming people being annoyed - simply because the one, repetitive 'excuse' about motorcycle accidents seems to be "I didn't see the bike". Screw that - you WILL see me if I have anything to say about it. Now I run regular low beam, but the street is lit up like it used to be with the high beam. I swapped bikes with a buddy last week and rode in front to see the effect and the thing is wicked bright on low beam.

I think that is why my Cyclops died after a couple of years, running on high beam all the time. This way, the bulb (hopefully) lasts longer.

If you just tilt the headlight down a bit, you're back to normal.

3) It's just a normal-ish sized bulb. No resistor on a wire to have to secure inside the headlight canister to prevent it from rattling around in there. Makes installation a 3 minute process.

To be clear, I believe the Cyclops product is superior. It has a better beam pattern, but with US/CAD exchange rates as they are, it was literally 400% more expensive by the time it would have arrived. I'm happy with this bulb and would recommend it as a definite upgrade from stock.

I had to urethane some mounting plates that i made to the sides of the unit then just lining up the mounts to the outer ring of the headlamp, also fitted a weather strip around the lamp just to seal it off as there was a 10 mm gap around it , looked ok but better with seal

Bought the denali M5 over cyclopse, hiwever halo light wire iss not connected to h4 plug.

Do you know where running light is in bucket? & how to tap?

I saw plastic quick splice clamps on hogworkz, but do not know where to buy clamps.

Definitely not the least expensive option but it's what I wanted


The M5 halo wire is separate, do you know which wire is the hot running light?


I believe it is the blue one, however I read in other posts that there is a extra aux wires / plug in the bucket, I cannot identify it, but do have the quick splice connects once i do.

I bought theSEALIGHT 5-3/4 5.75-inch LED Headlight for Harley Davidson Motorcycle, LED Projector Headlight off of Amazon and bought this adapter from ebay:



https://www.ebay.com/itm/Yamaha-Stry...f16b%7Ciid%3A1


This adapter is supposed to work with any HD type led headlights. It works great for the Sealight I bought. Message the seller, as he may give you a discount too.
