I pre-ordered the JNS headlight so I've had mine since they first shipped and I'm really happy with it. Much better than the stock, that's for sure. I've had cars flash me with the low beam on, even in semi-darkness, so they do bother some drivers.
They are not DOT approved, so be aware of that if it bothers you. I believe they;re not DOT is due to the option of having a red daytime running light, but you don't have to plug that one in (I never have).
Also have Denali D4s on a JNS mount and they are incredible. Their light floods way out to the sides to allow you to see critters on the sides of the road and in the woods so you can avoid them. It's like having daylight around the bike.
Just yesterday I put in the KLR650.com flashing LED tail light and it is way, way brighter than the stock unit. The flashing is awesome but I turned it off for now as I'm afraid I'd be flashing the eyeballs out of peoples heads riding in stop and go around town. But I'll probably turn on the 1 second flash on some longer rides when driving on the highway or in the rain.
Being able to see and be seen is important and in my case it was worth the scratch.
