Update on my Fyrlyt's over past 5years...
I've had plenty problems with both sets of Fyrlyt's over the years, I've got one set on the Triton and another set on the Cruiser.
The latest set of problems I've been having are the glass lenses falling out of the the frames and then causing the destruction of the reflectors and lamp holders, then burnt out plugs on rear of the fittings causing intermittent workings. Then the constant water and dust getting past the seal into and onto the reflector and then resulting in compromised reflector from constantly having to clean them.
I've gone through a couple of the plastic lenses due to them cracking after just 18months and now the glass lenses have been a failure.
I'm fairly bummed out about these lights because the actual lighting performance (when they work) are absolutely fantastic!
I also can't complain about Fyrlyt's customer service, as they have always been quick to warrant the faulty parts without question. However I'm just over the hassle of having to fix these lights. For my type of use, they're just not fit for purpose. I'm quite hard on my gear but I also maintain things more frequently than most would. With the Fyrlyt's, I try to keep them clean, service to the seal around the lenses and if I notice condensation inside, then I dry them out.
I've also got an old 20" led light bar that has been on the Triton for nearly 10years, it's still going strong without any maintenance required, it's been around Australia and submerged underwater many times over, it was cheap at under $200, nothing special but it pumps out a great amount of light, usually too much as I have to switch it off when too many road signs around. Go figure.
Anyone else having these dramas with their Fyrlyt's?
At this stage I'll be selling the Fyrlyt's on the Cruiser and trying out something new, probably a set of the Nighthawk variable colour temperature (VCT) led lights. Anyone tried these yet?
