Laugh Well... Sanjoh is gonna be happy ! Massive order placed

OK, I finally read ALL of this thread (wew!) and conclusion is that I placed a massive order on Sanjoh's lights and accessories

From what I read and see it's hard to beat these lights beer/cent ratio and Sanjoh is very responsive both here and in Mail.

Now stay tuned for pictures of installation on
- Ural 750 Ranger
- Virago 1100
- Jeep Wrangler (JK)

Just one question for now: I wil wire the lights dirct on battery but I don't know if the 12 Volts is very stable on the bikes or if there are still spikes coming in from the alternator...
Would you suggest a condensator up-front and if yes what kind and size?
Or are lhe lights already protected on their own ?
No wanna fry them right away...

The lights are protected for reverse polarity, they will handle a pretty significant spike, up to 30v DC. I would not recommend a condensator (capacitor) unless the voltage drops below 8v which I don't think will happen with a properly maintained 12v battery.

Your order is on it's way!

We installed the red prismatic lens in extra bezels for easy installation or switching back to clear.

Good quality for the pricepoint, and very good light output. They are small, but nicely plated, and mount easily. Even the wires coming out of them is good quality.

I'll let you know as I get more miles on them, but so far they are great!

It uses Cree XML T6 leds and a great reflector design. Due to the length of the reflector/optics, we will not use our current form factor / housing. The multiple led lights are larger than our current lights. More to come......
