Krista 2 High Powered LED Lights for BMW Motorcycles by Clearwater Lights (pair)
The big sister to Darlas and Glendas boasts up to 5x more light with a longer reaching pattern. By using custom and proprietary digital control circuits, these lights can produce up to 180 watts of Halogen light while only using 36 watts of power. A total of three 12 watt LEDs are used in each of the lights. The housings are CNC machined from aluminum right here in the USA and are hard anodized and then powder coated for corrosion protection. Exacting assembly and quality control sets this light apart from any other light available. Using aircraft grade, silver plated wire with Teflon insulation, these lights are made to last. Tough acrylic lens covers are easily replaceable and optional Amber lenses are available.
As with all Clearwater lights, Krista 2 is fully dimmable and can switch from a LOW beam to a HIGH beam with a flick of the factory high beam switch. The LOW setting is fully dimmable via a digital brightness control. This control knob is used to adjust the level of light you desire with Low beams. On the lowest setting, a pair of Kristas only use 4 watts of power. At a half way setting a pair of Kristas use a mere 16 watts of power. And, on full 100% power, they use 70 watts of power, combined.
Tech Talk from Clearwater's Founder: We have introduced a new version of Krista. Using the same new updated electronics and our new 8 degree pencil beam optic, Krista now boasts over 3000 lumens (up from 2400). Even though Krista has 1/2 the light output of the very powerful Erica, Krista can still produce a tight spot light on top of the Erica flood.
They come with easy to follow installation instructions, harnesses and hardware to mount to various motorcycles. A list of suggested custom mounts is also available for specific motorcycles. Some applications may require an additional bracket.

The Clearwater Lights™ Advantage
Clearwater Lights are compact, easy to mount and simple to install. In order to maximize the full potential of HPLEDs, Clearwater uses advanced microprocessor controlled circuits to keep light output constant at a wide range of voltages. Because we use programmable circuits to control the power, we can even remotely adjust brightness!
What Are HPLEDs?
High Power LEDs (HPLEDs) are a new generation technology ideally suited for the unique demands of today’s motorcycles. Providing higher output with lower power consumption – dramatically increasing your level of safety and reliability. The Clearwater Lights HPLED revolution is here! Clearwater HPLEDs Easily Surpass Halogen for Output and Efficiency.
Why Control Brightness?
The unique brightness control circuit uses a rotary volume control to digitally change brightness in a wide range of intensity. The soft rubber knob is easily adjusted, even with gloves. It conveniently mounts on a handlebar or in a faring.
Clearwater Lights let the rider easily adjust the light output to the needs of changing road conditions. Because they don’t need to be turned off, safety is never compromised.
Auxiliary lights are often avoided because of the added glare imposed on oncoming traffic – they’re just too bright. But turning off these lights decreases the rider’s visible “signature” for oncoming drivers, increasing the danger to the rider.
How Strong are These Lights?
Each light is either CNC machined or forged from billet. Brackets are machined from 6061 series aluminum and use durable stainless steel hardware. The internal circuit boards are actually bonded to an additional aluminum plate for strength and heat management. Surface treatments consist of BOTH hard anodize and powder coating on certain models.
Can I Install it Myself?
Yes, you can! Clearwater has a long history of designing and manufacturing quality products that are consumer-friendly. Instructions and owners’ manuals are written with the home consumer in mind. On site installation is available at our Hayward, CA facility.
