Lots of people have done it and there are a few good write ups in this forum. Don't forget to order some LED side-lights while you are at it.

According to an email I got from Bill at skene lights, this particular unit has been tested with the skene controller and works, meaning the led’s are dimmable. This setup seems pricey, would you mind sharing your opinion of this kit and it’s contents and quality?

$150 for a pair of LED bulbs? That seems about $120 too much. Maybe the baby Versys needs spacers but the 1000 ('15-'18) doesn't.

These are killer lights. I put a set on mine and once the wife saw them she had to have them on her bike. The lights are inexpensive but the Versys mount wasn't.

I used a set of those the winter before last. They were bright enough, but didn't last the winter as the paint is too thin (to be expected for the price). Give them a respray or at least a generous coating of AFC50 before fitting and they will last a lot longer.
