I think I'm going to order the Cyclops lights at RMATV. These seem (at least according to some reviews and tjduexjr) to work pretty good in the KLR. I had thought about doing just what you did, putting a spacer in to raise the back of the fan up enough to be able to lock the spring clip in place. I decided against that as for two reasons. First, as near as I could tell, I was probably in the neighbor hood of around 5/16" from seating the bulb (give or take a little). Second, with the bulb set back that far, what kind of light pattern would I get (possibly something as you described). The cooling fan (as near as I can determine from pictures) seems to have a sharper angle on the cooling fan housing and maybe a bit longer shaft from the bulb to the housing. If so, this should eliminate my problem of the fan housing bottoming against the two screws/tabs that hold the spring clip. Hope so anyway. Thanks just the same for the input.
