Eliminate the "cyclops effect" for bikes with separate headlight lensesSkene's new IQ-270-A runs your high beam at a lower brightness until the high beam is switched on. More light and a balanced look!
The extra light provided makes your bike more visible and helps make your ride safer without the dangerous glare to oncoming traffic of a full high beam If your bike has separate headlight lenses for high and low beam, the IQ-270-A will give your bike a more balanced appearance with both lenses illuminated You select and program the brightness setting at which the high beam lens will operate when the high beam is off The Alert Feature flashes the lamps in a highly visible pattern when the high beam is switched rapidly on and off twice, increasing your visibility to oncoming traffic. The sequence takes less than two seconds, but will greatly improve your likelihood of being seen. Normal application of the high beam or a single tap will not trigger the ALERT! sequence, so it has no effect on your usual riding style.

The IQ-270-A or Intelligent High Beam Controller with Alert enables your bike’s high beam to operate at reduced brightness when the high beam is turned off and at 100% brightness when the high beam is turned on.
IQ-270-A Intelligent High Beam Controller with Alert Installation Information
Connect the controller's black wire on the controller to any bike ground connection
Disconnect or cut the wire to the high beam
Connect the high beam bulb end to the orange/white striped and violet/white striped wires
Connect the high beam bike end to the white and orange wires
Connect the violet wire through an appropriately sized fuse either to a switched 12 volt circuit or to the battery. The switched circuit must be able to supply the full current drawn by the high beam bulb which is typically ~5 amps. If a switched circuit is used, this same circuit may be used to power the control module
Connect the controller's red wire to switched power. The current draw on the red wire is only a few milliamps so any switched source will work. The red wire can share the same switched circuit as the violet wire.
After installation, you will need to adjust the brightness of the high beam bulb for maximum light output without causing glare for oncoming traffic. When you turn on the ignition the high beam will come on low power for 3 seconds, flash briefly twice and switch to the default brightness level of 20%.
To change the brightness level follow these steps.
Ensure that the high beam switch is off, then turn on the ignition. The high beam will come on low power for 3 seconds and then flash briefly twice
To enter programming mode, as soon as you see the 2 rapid flashes, activate the high beam switch 3 times before 10 seconds elapse. The controller will respond by flashing the lamps back 3 times, signaling the controller is now in programming mode.
Once in programming mode, each time the high beam is turned on then off, the high beam brightness will increase by 10% until it reaches 100%. The next increment beyond 100% will cycle it back to 0% or off.
Exit the programming mode by turning the ignition off. The controller will also exit programming mode if there is no activity on the high beam switch for 20 seconds. The programmed brightness level is automatically saved and will apply the next time the ignition is turned on.
Once you select your desired brightness, please observe the bike’s headlight from a distance of ~ 50 feet in front of the bike. If too bright, repeat the programming process. It can be helpful to have a second person on hand to help with this observation.
It is important that the selected brightness not cause glare to oncoming traffic
Note 1: If you turn the ignition on with the high beam switch on, the high beam comes on at full power and you are unable to enter programming mode
Note 2: When the controller is installed, the high beam indicator light may be lit at reduced brightness when the high beam switch is off.
Note 3: If your bike’s headlight comes on with the engine instead of the ignition follow this process for programming. The controller begins its start up sequence at power up, so it could be past the 2 rapid flashes by the time the headlight comes on. If so, go ahead and activate the high beam switch 3 times. If the controller flashes the lights back in response then you are in programming mode. If not, turn off the ignition and start again as long as the 3 high beam switch activations are completed within the first 13 seconds after the ignition comes on you will be in programming mode.
Note 4: If the wire connections will be in a wet location, We suggest that you wrap them in Rescue Tape or a similar waterproof tape for extra protection.
