Hey everyone, has anyone come up with a fix for the poor headlight situation on the 2008 model? They're bright enough, but the coverage area is really small, doesn't inspire confidence on country roads.

Some folks replace the single headlamp for a double. Others simply add LED lamps on both sides of the headlamp, which would be the route I'd personally choose, if I needed to.

Research (google) LED headlamps; some are bright enough to allow more dispersion, without losing significant forward brightness. I'll look a little bit myself, and post a link if I find something.

Also Denali makes some great add on lights. Not cheap, but neither is the performance.

Here is the Denali site: Denali Electronics

You would need a light mount for you 1050, and then the light(s).
