Demonscycle Headlights??

Has anyone had any problems with headlights off of demonscycle?? I am debating between a wave or bullet. I do a lot of night riding and I was wondering if anyone has had any relevant issues with performance? Also, if you have purchased off of this website where did you find your bracket?? Thanks all in advance

I got their $40 bullet light. it was chromed plastic an felt cheap I never installed it. I sold it for $30 an got a used headwinds off ebay for $88. Nice, heavy, good quality but expensive (around $400 new).

I bought a black wave headlight about 6 months ago. I've been looking for a mounting bracket for it too. I hope someone has an idea, or knows of a place to buy one from.

I don't know either of these lights so this may be no use, but the old D and DX nosecone, if you chuck the plastic away, is a conventional headlamp bracket.

There was a discussion about this site a few years back and someone said they had a "F" grade from the BBB. Just wondering if things she gotten better and if someone had possibly purchased hardware from the site recently.

I've had ok luck with them. The headlight was kinda cheap but it was $40 shipped. I got some razor mirrors that are chromed plastic, again kinda cheap but you get what you pay for. If it's a metal housing it may be ok. I'd use them for accessory stuff but no why would I use brake or suspension stuff from them.

Go buy a DX bracket. About 20 bucks. Then mount any headlight you want. It is black, but, chrome or powdercoat to match the look you want. I put a heritage headlight bucket on mine. Works great. Joe

Look in my gallery and you'll see I have made several headlight brackets. I'm currently working on one for a headlight very similar to the one in the link.

Edit: ha!...coolbreeze is the one who contacted me about it

I thought it would be best to further research the headlight to avoid any headaches.

People have come to call my brackets "fork plates". I think the 4" version on the second Page of my gallery would work, but I'd need the Demon bracket. I've seen pics of it and it appears to have one central 3/8" hole and two 3/16" holes on either side of that one.
