Just entertaining thoughts here...
Now that sounds interesting!

Thought I would give you a quick .gif to show the light outputs, feel free to use it as you want and I can add/subtract pieces and parts too.

This must be the ultimate scientific method to test light output and beam pattern

Since I got my 1st ADVMonster Lights about 2 yrs ago, I don't think I have used my Hi Beam even once! So I figured, Why the hell have I been lugging that big useless piece around with me. As of tonight, that has been remedied!
Here's how it looked:


Here's how it looks now!

Closeup!

Mount/Adapter


I made up a template, so if you want to do the same, just PM me and I can email it to you!

The lack of symetry would make me nuts. I would buy a single replacement, maybe in a fog light, and add it back on the right side.

It would need to be a reflector design with the LED shining into the reflector, not straight out towards the front. A visor/shutter over the top half of one of lights being sold now makes very little difference in terms of being friendly to oncoming traffic, it's still blinding. I bought a shaped beam light for my bike that uses a reflector to eliminate glare to oncoming pedestrians/bikes/cars, and with a "lowly" output of 270 lumens, it puts the "1000 lumen" bike light to absolute shame in terms of the light field quality, throw, and effectiveness. Just saying, it has to be more than something stuck on the front of the light in case that's what the clipped beam idea is.

I would love to put all of them on that .gif, but those are the only lights with the same background. I would like to add the M60 and M44.

Great job, looks like anyone making eye contact will be hypnotized.

What do you do for a backup in case the light burns out?

I've never used my high beams either since I've installed them.

Hadnt thought of the backup. If Im traveling, nothing I can do, but run the stock projector low beam and the 10w ADVMonster Spot. Soon, I hope to replace the stock projector with the Hi/Lo Projector and LED bulb, but that is a bigger project! I can always revert to the stock Hi Beam if need be, as no modification happened to original parts!

Low 594,

I have the following setup. On your normal KTM high beam did you have HID convertion or normal lights?




I like the look on the bike...

I had the Osram bulb, nothing special.
I see you got your own look going on there with the orange and black handguards and single mirror!
