I boutght a Tesla and went for a quick ride, very very impressed! But i noticed some condensation on the glass, no problem i thoughni'll remove the glass and let it dry out. Only problem is the reflector came out as well! Does it have a specific orientation, theres a black section on half of the rear of the reflector, does this go at the top or bottom of the light (looking at it as if it was mounted on the bars)

Can some helpful tesla owner have a look at theirs for me please!!

EDIT - found out theres no specific orientation!

Since you've been able to take the Tesla apart..would it be too much trouble to ask you what the dimensions of the reflector are? I can't help but think how many people might try to order just the reflector from Lupine. :thumbsup: ..Then there's the people who will order the whole Tesla light set and then return it less the reflector ( *after doing a reflector switcher-rue ) :D
*Please don't think I would ever do this, I'm an honest person really! I just know the kind of things that others might do, nevertheless I would buy one if I could.

You don't need to steal the Tesla's reflector. These reflector types are called "Boom" and are available from the optics manufacturers (such as Ledil) and - if you insist on "stealing" from somewhere - from torches (from DX and others). While I haven't seen a light using this boom reflector in real life based on the photos they are quite similar to the Tesla (which I own).
Also check out the DIY beamshot thread to see how a triple-MCE boom performs - I have to say that the Tesla beam looks like a dim incandescent bulb's feeble shimmer next to that... I hope Betty's gonna have a sister (or brother?) soon, probably next year. I have already started to save some money to be able to afford it... ;-)
