I'm thinking the bracket is resting against the fork leg, so it cannot rotate back.

I like the rotary dimmer, handy having the adjustment knob and off option right on the dash.

THAT was quick !

I placed my order Wednesday evening and the postman delivered my lights Saturday, just in time for me to play with them over the Labor Day weekend.

I also bought the LED flashlight, which is very cool --

any ideas on mounting a pair to the forks of the 08 KLR?

could i beg a rotary switch that could handle 4 60's ? even better if the knob could come off so i could put the box behind my dash plate

Did you try the flashlight at night?

You can mount them on the lower fork leg by removing the stock side reflectors. Or pick up a set of turn signal relocators for a 41mm fork.

As much as I would like to sell you 4 model 60s, you just don't need 4! Unless you are wearing your welding helmet. Please try a pair and if find you need more light we can talk.

Hi Sanjoh.. looking forward to hearing back from you!! Can't wait to try out my mount ideas...... just need to find out if the total throw for the 60 model 'flood' is longer than the 30 model 'spot'. I was thinking one of each (1 mounted as spot on top fairing of my KLRto give maximum distance, the other where my orig fender was mounted so it will turn with bars) ..BUT if the total throw of the 60 flood is just as far..then I will spring for 2 of those with a rotary dimmer.

Thanks :)

I have a question about the available mounts:

You offer a Heavy Duty bracket:


And a crash bar mount



Do you need both to use the crashbar mount? I know the light comes with the "standard" bracket, but do you need a bracket and a mount?

Thanks.

PS: I wish the rotary dimmer knob came off too. A panel mount would be very nice.

The model 60 has more throw due to having over twice the lumen output as the model 40.

You do not need both. The crashbar mount is intended to provide a platform to mount lights on a round tube, the heavy duty bracket is an upgrade to the standard bracket which is an integral part of the light.

Yes-very happy

Those are my pictures above.
I just returned from my first night ride- HID's 55W low and high and 2- M60's to fill in
the other areas.
I wired it so in low beam the M60's adjust and in highbeam they max blast.
John did a great job of immediately getting back to me with any questions I had.
Definitely recommend!

Just came back from an impromptu saddle sore ride and the 60s are the bomb. A grounding issue took them out for a spell and even with dual hid low beams it was dark. These lights are not to be missed.

The bracket I made rests along the fork leg, 4000+ miles and no movement, no bouncing. This is a road bike with a sidecar, so no washboard dirt roads encountered.
Now if you want to talk about tightening the pivot screw on the light bracket........
