I have and really like them, no problems so far but only got them a couple months ago.

I like the running lights, most of my riding is in daylight and they make you more visible and look cool IMO, the built in turn signals are pretty cool too.

They are a real clean look, looks like it was factory and the switch too.

As for night time I can tell when the fogs are on but haven't done a throw measurement.

excellent light output. When the fogs are on, it can wash out the turn signal LED's though. No big deal.

I have a set of the pathfinders as well

I like them and they light up the road at night very nicely. I can probably get by with raising them a bit more but they put out a lot of light in a nice pattern. I love the DRL/Turn signal feature as it does seem to get attention pretty well at intersections. Installation was easy and everything is working great so far.. I only wish it was easier to see if the lights are on or off from the switch (maybe a dual led light in the switch would help?).

All, thanks for all the responses. I decided to have the EC Six Shooter repaired as it was covered under warranty and was the most cost effective course to take. If they go out again, I'll make the move to the Pathfinders.

I just had the Pathfinders installed on my 2106. They look and work awesome. BUT, I do not have the turn signal feature wired because my tech guy said it draws too much current??


Anyone else have this issue?

That's nonsense. The DRL and turn signal LEDs draw a tiny amount of current.
The only issue he may have had was that unless you have an new electronic flasher unit, the Pathfinder turn signals will rapid flash because of their low impedance.
Did he explain that to you?

If it ain't broke, try to fix it anyways

I didn't need a flasher unit when I installed my kit

+1... or it came with it? I didn't buy a separate flasher.

If the regular turn signal bulbs are stock there is probably enough load for proper flash rate

I am running regular orange bulbs for the mirror blinkers. Does that mean if I switch to LED mirror blinkers that I will need to add a flasher unit?
