    I have an old Cyglolite dual 10w (6volt) system. I converted my old RC car packs to run them but in the 8 or so years of storage one of the bulbs is burnt out (does not work)

    Where do I get replacements. I tried to find Cyglolite on the internet and found nothing for a home page. I found some European site that sold the bulb for about $10.XX british pounds. Anyone have their website, do they have one?

    Any place to buy replacement bulbs (with reflector) in the states?

    Rhino

    PS- one is a spot and the other a flood....don't remember wich one burnt out. :think:

    Damn it!

    You don't use Google and look what happens.

    Found on Google.com www.cygolite.com

    PS that and I need to stop calling it a Cyglolite ....it is Cygolite

    Turbo cat will set you some. That said, PM me an email and I will see what I have at home. I have some extras, but don't know what all. Niterider has a reflector, but Turbo cat does not.

    Wumpus that isa great site !

    I have some of those 5 Watt 6 Volt MR11 and they are great for a backup light , small , can run a long time on a small battery pack, and works !!! I've done entire rides using them before !

    BTW : you know what MR11 stands for ? how it relates to MR8's and MR16's ?

    I think it is just the bulb type and size. Cheap bulbs aren't very clear. That is the only true thing I know.

    Hmmm not sure the exact number....I will have to check tonight.

    All I remember are they are sealed in their own reflector (built in reflector?) It has 10W and 6V on the back with 2 wires sticking out to plug into the wiring harness.

    The bulbs face/front is not much bigger than a quarter or a half dollar maybe. I guess I assumed the size of the shells were kinda standardized. :think:

    If it's the rover, I pulled one apart at the shop and they are MR11 bulbs. Look at the reflector. Tight waffle is spot, more open is flood.
