About a month ago, I ordered a pair of the Model 30 lights. I received them promptly. (Thank you sanjoh!) I still needed to work out a method to mount them as I own a 2008 Suzuki Burgman 400. It has a lot of great things about it, but isn't designed like a BMW F800GS with lots of places to simply clamp a mounting bracket to. So I kluged together a bracket that attaches to the front fairing plastic and spreads the load out to four bolts, instead of just one. Hopefully, it'll work and not crack.






Light output has been perfect for what I need. I ride a 60 mile daily commute in Seattle with a stretch on I-5 from Shoreline to Mt. Lake Terrace that is not lit. In the winter with the rain coming down and the sun long gone, that road surface just sucks up any available light. I wanted a driving light that would be usable in traffic (not blinding anyone), and would extend just past the low beam light pattern.

This works. The light pattern is tight enough that both spot lights stay within my lane with little spread outside that location. They are bright enough to be clearly seen on the road, and much brighter where they hit than the H4 low-beam lights. I don't seem to be bothering any other drivers because I've asked, and they said the lights were fine...but they hated HID lights.

So these seem to be a winner.

I got a set of the 10 watt lights back in February, and have just ordered a set of these for my son's bike! Good stuff!

You could always pay the full price for one of the other lights and get a warranty...

One of my two fixed 24W floods died - very little usage, less than 500 miles, no offroad.

Been a while since I've looked through this thread...more failures than I'd like to see, even discounting the HID related issues.

This.

I still dont understand why a price reduction requires the removal of the warranty, beyond the fact of the documented failures. Im not trying to start a crap fest here, just trying to understand, perhaps this is why I work for a company versus running my own.

Prototypes have passed the Buell torture testing. No motor mounts were harmed in the process

Brackets are being made, looks like late August at this point.

Neither do I run my own business but there is a cost to providing a warranty. That cost is like an insurance premium. Probably anything you buy which offers warranty already had that cost factored in (which you paid for) just in case there is a claim.

Eh?

So I started plowing through the thread but soon got lost. I have a question (or several, probably):

I have a R1200GS Adv and would like to get the model 44 lights. However, I don't like the key fob dimmer and would prefer some handlebar controls to do that for me. Is there anything available like that? I saw the 30s on a bike that has a switch for Off/On(probably 50%)/100% with high beam, or something like that.

Any suggestions?

Same design twice the thickness of stainless steel. Pricing is still TBD but should be $10-20 per pc.

Standard mount at top, heavy duty mount below


Standard mount on left, heavy duty mount on right

Looking to add a pair to my R12GS.

However the main motive of the lights is for fogs/heavy rain.

Should i get a pair of spot/flood or flood/flood?


Or i shld skip this and go for a pair of touratech/hella HID foglights?

:)
